Android 4.3 update (new information) ...
« on: October 15, 2013, 11:42:12 AM »
Hi, everyone.  Thought I'd share this.  I was on the phone with Hisense tech support yesterday, and they said that Android 4.3 is now rolling out for the Sero, though it's available only in different parts of the U.S.  Gradually, they'll make it more available as they seed the update across different territories.  I had to ask twice to make absolutely sure that the tech wasn't wrong, and was talking about Android 4.2.2.  He insisted that 4.3 was rolling out now.  Just FYI.  Has anyone else started to receive the 4.3 update on their Sero tablets?

Sorry to disappoint, but I just double-checked with Hisense's tablet tech support, and they said I was given the wrong information.  Looks like we'll have to wait a while longer.

Fall ends December 20th here in the U.S. (this year), so it might be a whole 2 months before Android 4.3 gets released for the Sero 7 Pro.  Sucks ...

  Maybe it's the second person who's wrong.  :)  Yeah.  I'm going with that...

It doesn't really matter what any of them say over the phone.  We just need to see one Sero 7 Pro owner whose tablet has been updated to 4.3.  Until that happens, it's all just rumor.

Funny picture of the vultures.  On a separate note, I have to say, I'm a bit frustrated with how tech support always seem to be out of the loop with what's going on at the top as far as Android releases go.  The second person I spoke with on my follow-up call to Hisense tech support kept saying, "all we know is that they said 4.3 would be out this Fall; they haven't told us when they will release it."  "They" this and "they" that.  It gets old.  This isn't limited to Hisense only.  I have heard the same story from other companies' tech support people (e.g. AT&T, Verizon).  Who exactly is "they," anyway?  Are "they" the software development people within these companies?  What's with the compartmentalization there as far as communication goes?  It just strikes me as irrational.  If anything, there should be open communication between certain departments within a company when it comes to stuff like this.  Or at least give tech support folks something a bit "concrete" for customers' own benefit (e.g. "Android 4.3 will be released sometime in October" instead of "Fall").  Narrow it down a little, you know?  Anyway ... the waiting game goes on.  One particular "plus" of 4.3 that I'm looking forward to is the improved battery life, too.  That would help with our Sero 7 Pro tablets.

"They" are a waste of time to deal with.  I think someone once said 'patience is a virtue' or was it 'go let the vultures out of the cage!' ?

At this point, all I can think of is for ALL OF US to start bombarding Hisense USA with requests to be more "transparent" as to when we can expect 4.3.  Sign up for Twitter and send a tweet to their Twitter account, call their support line, or send them e-mails.  If enough inquiries are received by them, they may open up a little more, and we can stop waiting with a big "?" in our minds.  I've already signed up for Twitter, and sent them a tweet about 4.3.  Just need more people to do that, so sign up, and tweet them.

I tweet. I'll send some out. I don't really care about the update, though, honestly. I'm really happy with DoPa right now. I can do everything I could think of doing without issues, pretty dang fast. The tablet goes everywhere with me- except the bathroom, lol.  :o

Would 4.3 give us multiple accounts?

yeah, but still in the early stages.  Camera still not working.  I wouldn't suggest anyone flash this that doesn't have the experience to handle bugs, just my opinion.
