    • Yes, I have found this to be the case for hudl2s too, however it's not always that straightforward - sometimes the Play Store and Google Play Services seem to update themselves in the background like you say, and in this case, yes, the play store will start working after a while and it is possible to kick off all the other app updates (and there's no specific NEED to disable certain apps, only if you yourself specifically want to, but you can leave them all active and let them update themselves, it doesn't cause any problems). However, in some hudl2s the play store and google play services DON'T seem to update themselves automatically however long you wait (I have left some since yesterday, turned them off and on again sporadically, and still today the play store doesn't work). I've figured out one workaround so far, it is to open an app that needs updating, I've used YouTube since it happens to sit next to the play store icon, and it'll tell me that a newer version is available, Install Now? which I do. However, after the installation when I try to open YouTube it tells me that to run it needs Google Play Services to be updated, Update now? And once Google Play Services have updated, THEN the play store also works as it should. Still need to figure out if there's an easier way to trigger the update to Google Play Services when it doesn't happen by itself.  
    • This sounds fantastic, I'll test my HUDL1 later.  It looks like a bit of crowd-sourced technical knowledge and perseverance here paid off and probably helped Tescos resolve the issue for everyone. Hopefully they leave the server on for a few more years.
    • Alex h, I got that same error and then I figured out that I put a space after the colon in "sm partition disk:179,32 private" and there shouldn't be one.  Just in case this helps uhh, 9 months later or helps someone else who found their way here to find a solution.
    • Hi All! I have just successfully factory reset my Hudl 1 (HT7P16S3) through the boot menu details below...   Android version 4.2.2 Kernel version 3.0.36+ Build number JDQ39.20140424.153851   ...so (from my POV) the Tesco/MS servers are now giving the correct response to let the Hudl 1 reset complete to a proper conclusion.   After reset I followed the steps in Anna65's post of the 27th February   On the “Hello” start-up screen, select Start. Select the your WiFi connection – and log in! On the Terms & Conditions pop-up box, select Continue. When asked if you’d like to add a Google Account or sign up for one, select No. Untick both boxes in Google & Location and tap the arrow to proceed. On “Have a Tesco Account”, select No. On Register with Tesco, select Skip. You’ll see Checking for Updates and Updating Apps progress pages. When asked to update apps, select Not Now. Select Finish. You’ll now be taken to the Home screen of your Hudl and you’ll be able to use it as normal.   BUT after I got to the home screen I went into applications and cleared the data, disabled notifications, force stopped then disabled the below, mostly Tesco, bloatware...   Blinkbox Blinkbox music Blinkbox widget Clubcard TV Getting Started Google+ - Never used this App (it might now be defunct anyway) Groceries Groceries widget Hangouts – Never used this App Picasa Uploader – Picasa is now defunct anyway Store Locator Tesco Account Manager Tesco Clubcard Tesco Direct Tesco World   I then opened Play Store and signed in with my account and let it update the apps it wanted to, but please note that the Play Store App itself and possibly a few other base Google services need to update themselves first and this can look like the Play Store has frozen on a partially empty screen for about 5ish minutes. Once the PS has updated the other Apps start updating.   I now have a fully working Hudl 1...!
