Hudl Update installed with no problem and did not affect rooting.  Only change that is obvious is 'Reset Touch Screen' option under 'Settings - Display'.

 

Cannot tell if it has cured the non-responsive screen problem as I never had this. However, the touch screen is much more sensitive to the slightest touch and I have had a number of unintended operations occurring.  I am used to making a firm contact but now any fleeting touch registers to the extent that it may be too sensitive.

 

Still Android 4.2.2 but kernel 3.0.36+ dated 24 Apr 2014, build JDQ39.20140424.153851.

if anyone could upload a copy of the update file for us to look through it may be useful to work out what it's changing

The update may not show if your hudl's configuration / build / versions etc are not what's expected or Tesco are performing a scheduled rollout strategy- just a guess as my unit says "Your hudl is up to date", my unit is running a custom ROM and my wife's hudl also says the same, but hers is only rooted on the last update.

Guessing its a staggered rollout/soak test, as I've yet to receive it. I am rooted however so that could have an impact.

Does anyone know if the kernel sources provided by Tesco have been updated to reflect the changes that are in this update.

Its a shame we have yet to receive KitKat, however that could be next.

if you check for updates through the settings > about tablet > system update then my tablet's date always stays the same once you exit the update screen. However, if you create a launcher activity shortcut (I'm not sure this can be done on the stock launcher - I use Apex) to the google services framework > system updates then tap the shortcut to open it it brings up a similar update screen upon which the date does change. The usual settings route launches the hudl updater app rather than stock. No idea if this information is of any use!

 

My hudl is rooted and running my custom SystemUI.apk - neither of the above update methods show anything other than up to date (yet...)

I'm getting told that the update is available, but when I try, it won't update because I have CWM instead of the stock recovery :-(

Yes they do - pull the recovery partition out of a stock ROM.

I've updated and have lost root. No big deal because the xposed framework mods have stayed the same.

I didn't think xposed would work without root?
