ZenPad tablets with Android 6.0 Marshmallow update

In the recent past, Asus rolled out Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the ZenPad S 8.0 series of tablets. That was big news and a big relief to a lot of people. People want Android updates and people speak loud and clear about this.

Part of our goal has been to keep people in the loop. To keep people informed about updates to their ZenPads has been part of our mission. So we can accept the fact we haven’t kept up with all things ZenPad.

At this point in time we aren’t even sure if people realize that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update has come to a number of ZenPad tablets. People have been critical of Asus for lack of Android updates, but perhaps some of that criticism is not entirely valid.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow update available for the following:

  • ZenPad S 8.0 (Z580CA/Z580C)
    • JP_V5.4.9.0 (2016/09/12)
    • WW_V5.4.3.0 (2016/09/12)
  • ZenPad 8.0 (Z380KL)
    • JP_V5.6.0 (2016/09/08)
    • WW_V5.4.2 (2016/05/26)
  • ZenPad 10 (Z300CL)
    • JP_V13.8.1.56 (2016/09/30)
    • WW_V13.8.1.56 (2016/09/19)
  • ZenPad 7.0 (Z370KL)
    • JP_13.6.2.27 (2016/08/18)
    • WW_13.6.2.24 (2016/08/18)

 

How To Update Your ZenPad With Android 6.0 Marshmallow:

These instructions can be used for this update regardless of your ZenPad model. The main point is that you will need to download the update manually. I recommend that you view our ZenPad S 8.0 Android 6.0 update page and read the comments from people who have done the update themselves. People helping one another!

Other key points include backing up your files and important documents and ensuring you have a full battery charge before starting the update. Asus says have at least 50% battery but we say make it 100%.

    Hello,
    Will this update work on a Zenpad Z300C?
    Thanks,
    Fred

      No it won’t. So far there hasn’t been an update for the Z300C. We are checking often to see for updates and will post if we find something new. Thanks.

    To Staff,

    I safely and successfully updated to 6.0.1 skipping the unnecessary PC and USB cable connection completely.

    That means that FOTA update is possible, contrary to the popular view.

    Regards
