Hi All,

  Whenever my mobile goes off due battery down, Android is keep upgrading after manually switch on once battery is charged with 1%. And yes this happens at every time. How come there can be upgrades many times a day ? I noticed each time upgrade is completed till the last patch. How can we investigate or troubleshoot on that ? I need to learn or know this with out shop keeper.  Help/ideas is much appreciated.

When mobile is off mode and charging shows 1% charging, when mobile is on and charging shows 16% !!, some times 35%!!!,So is the issue mobile or Android software ? Any clues for debugging this issue ?

Best Regards
Mohammed Sardar

A few follow up questions:
  • Is this with regards to an app that you have created?
  • Which device(s) do you have and what version(s) of Android are you using?

  • I suspect that this could be happening with some of the old apps.
    I know that there are two different versions of the Android environments.
    As such, my best guess is that when your device starts up Android converts some apps to the native Android environment.
    A few other possibilities are could be that there isn't enough storage space for the apps to be upgraded.
    Possibly your device does not have enough RAM, or your device does not meet some other hardware requirements for the update to the app.

    There could be an upgrade to the version of Android on your device.

    I do know that Google does update Google services and apps on a fairly regular basis and maybe this is what you are experiencing?

    There are plenty of unknowns right now, so I'm just taking wild guesses.

    Pete Thanks , I can understand your unknown Questions and thanks for your time.  This is not app that I created. This is about Android I'm about talking about.  This is happening only in recent days, When ever mobile goes power outage and if I start again it's keep upgrading every time. I noticed same many times. I would like to learn from the troubles so that trying to trouble shoot with some help from experts.

    So, answer to UK Questions are

  • Is this with regards to an app that you have created?
  •   No, This is Android itself talking about.
  • Which device(s) do you have and what version(s) of Android are you using?
  • I'm using Lenova A6000 Plus with  Android version number :5.0.2

    Mohammed,

    Please check the following out on your device:
  • How much storage you have without any extra SD card(s)?
  • How much free storage you have without any extra SD card(s)?
  • How much memory you have?
  • Is there in fact an upgrade/update to your device? You can probably find this out on the device's manufacture web page.
  • Are others with the same device experiencing the same issue?

  • I have heard of people experiencing problems with certain SD cards. Some times there are incompatibilities which can cause problems.
    If you have an SD card in your device can you take it out and see if the same issue occurs?

    Another few possible things to try could be:
  • Swap the battery with a different/new one. On some Android devices you can do this.
  • Get back to basics, disable things like Bluetooth, wifi, GPS.
  • Do not using the headphone/audio jack
  • Try a different USB cord

  • It looks like Lenovo may not offically support Android 6 aka Marshmallow.
    However Lenovo may have push an update to 5.0.2 for security reasons so maybe you can go to 5.0.2.x or something like that.

    Important
    Always do a back up of your data before flashing the device with a new firmware manually.
    And make sure that you have more then 60% battery life and that you can or are charging the device while applying the update if possible.
    Flashing the firmware on your device could brick it and make if totally useless, so proceed with caution.
    It can also take a rather long time to flash your device's firmware, so be patient if this is something that you are going to do and give yourself plenty of time.

    The official latest firmware for your device may be on the Lenovo web site. If this is the case, then this may fix this issue any possibly others once you flash you device with it.
    There will most likely be instructions on how to update the firmware manually on Lenovo web site for your device if they do have the firmware hosted there.
    Another thought could be to flash your device with the firmware that you are currently using. This would reset some things and may fix a few issues.
    Again I'd check to the Lenovo web site for instructions on how this can/should be done.
