This is a bit of random news that is for sure. Apparently Samsung has halted the rollout of the recently released Touch Wiz UX update for the Galaxy Tan 10.1 Wi-fi tablet. It started hitting devices sometime last week but it appears they might have found a few bugs and are now temporarily halting the update to assess the problem.

While we recently accepted the update and have been enjoying it you can see our full Touch Wiz UX Update Review. Our man Chris Burns has been enjoying all the new features although he has experienced more lag than usual and the occasional slowdowns weren’t present before the update. We did let out a public service announcement that the update was NOT reversible, but it appears maybe we should have said it a little louder.

The software update is working great for most, some users have been experiencing lag and graphical glitches according to some comments and our sources. Following @SamsungCarla on Twitter she has confirmed the Touch Wiz UX update has been temporarily halted “To Assess Progress And Ensure It’s A Positive Experience”. Basically make some bug fixes is what she is trying to say.

Have you accepted the update yourself? If so do you like it or are you experiencing similar issues? Feel free to add your thoughts to the comment section below.

  1. I have the touchwiz and I’d say it works great 95% of the time, but I do occasionally experience issues with lag and wifi connections, at which point I need to reboot.

    • I’m having wifi connection issue also. I have to do a hard reboot and/or disconnect and reconnect wifi. I also have lag issue when using the browser and at times when scrolling through the apps.

  2. Everything works great for me except for the Samsung Media Hub. I can search, purchase, and download movies, but i cannot play them. The player freezes for some reason. 

  3. My tablet got a bit laggy after the apdate. I allso have two annoying issues. The first is when i start it up from standby mode. It takes for about 20 seconds for the screen to accept a touch gesture when attempting to unlock. The second issue is when logging in after the previous step. The wifi wont connect. I have to manually disable and then enable wifi for it to connect. Hoping for an update soon. 

  4. After update, if power off and back on, all changes are gone; ie. if u uninstall and app, it will come back when u power off, even deleted files will come back.  Try doing a hard reset, but it doesnt work.  No matter what u do as long as u turn it off and back on, all changes are gone.
