* Changes in code supporting the USB host controller to improve performance resuming from sleep mode
After following the simple instructions displayed once this download has been selected from the Toshiba Service Station utility, the update will install automatically. The complete install should take several minutes, during which time you will be unable to use the tablet. Though it will appear to power off and on as part of the install, Toshiba recommends that you power off your tablet once the installation has completed, by holding down the power button for approximately 10 seconds. Depending on your log in status at the time, you may be see a prompt asking if you wish to power off your system, either select OK to shutdown, or continue to hold down the power button until the tablet vibrates and powers off. Your tablet may then be powered on and used in the normal manner.
Toshiba recommends you download and install all updates as they are released. An instruction for using the Toshiba Service Station utility can be found in your User’s Guide.
