Notion Ink update causes bricking issues for Adam users

updated 06:35 am EST, Tue January 25, 2011

Some early adopters forced to reflash device

Notion Ink has pulled an update for its Adam tablet after some users began reporting that the new firmware has been bricking their device. Early adopters of the just shipped NVIDIA Tegra 2-powered slate have reportedly been in touch with Notion Ink customer support who have advised on how to reflash their device to get it running again. According to Notion Ink Fan, the cause of the glitch is the result of the update file failing to be completely downloaded.

Notion Ink is said to be working on a fix and has in the meantime blocked the update until a solution becomes available. Notion Ink will advise customers via a formal email when they can resume attempts to install the over-the-air update.

The tablet, which has sold out of its initial production run and which won the runner-up prize for best tablet at CES 2011 has had some teething issues on launch. The first major issue centred on the the device shipping with matte screen protector, instead of having a matte screen built-in as originally advertised, and now the update glitch has also unfortunately marred the launch of what is an innovative slate with obvious potential.
