How will this update effect my screen?
When you turn on your screen, a message will notify you of an update. Click on ‘Confirm’ and then you’ll see another on screen message saying:
‘Warning: this update will clear all data, apps and settings’ Please backup any user created content to an external USB drive and if you’re unsure, please press cancel and speak to your IT support’.
If you’re happy to still proceed, click ‘Confirm’
**Your screen will be reformatted. This is because the Android OS is updating itself to the next major release**
At this stage, all data, downloaded apps, settings including Wi-Fi and network will be cleared from your Clevertouch devices memory.
Once your screen is updated, if your screen was previously connected to the internet via Wi-Fi, you will need to go back into ‘Settings’ - Wi-Fi, select your Wi-Fi network and enter password.
If your Clevertouch panel is enrolled in the Clevertouch Mobile Device Management system (MDM – remote management), after the update you will need to take the following steps
1, log onto your account on the MDM portal
2, Select the ‘Devices’ tab located on the left-hand side of your dashboard.
3, Click on filter groups, the box will expand down. Then click to the right of ‘All’ on the three dots (actions tab) and then remote exec.
4, Now click ‘Remote Exec’
5, Select system restore and click on ‘APPLY’ in the far righthand corner.
Now your MDM will be re activated on your Clevertouch panel.
