how would i update the Android OS on my HP Slate 7 Plus?

HP Recommended
HP Slate 7 Plus
Android 8.0 Oreo and older

I attempted to follow instructions for a similar device listed on here, a HP Slate 7 (normal I guess? I didn't think itd really matter much. ) anyways, I had the .zip file on the sd card and attempted the update and it said it was incompatible (I forget the exact wording)

 

its currently running Android 4.2.2, I would like to have something new enough to run the go pro application, along with some other more useful apps, thanks in advance for whatever help you can give.

 

I also couldn't quite find a match for this device with android on it...maybe I missed it?

Hi, thanks for replying

 

From what can tell it is a HP Slate 7 Plus....I honestly can't find any number or stickers on this device, Im also not sure how to open the back to check....I thought I couldnt.

 

I installed an app from Google play and it says that the device board is F4F69UA, which I believe is right when I Google the name it comes up with the same device.

 

I checked for updates and I did find my device on the HP support and it says there is no drivers or updates available.

@ivan52 If the support site doesn't list any updates, and I checked the details too, I'm afraid that there are no updates available for this device,

let me know if there's anything else we can help you with.

alright, thanks for checking for me, that's about what I figured. 

 

would I be able to get a copy of the drivers that are for this device? I had seen an download form, but I'm not a business so I wasn't sure what to do, if not thanks anyways!

@ivan52 I'm afraid we've reached the end of the line for this device, I suggest you check with a local tech for assistance or go for an upgrade, Good luck.
