Frequently Asked Questions: Updating

    My friend has new sermons in our language that I don't have. How do I get them?

You should update your tablet to receive the latest sermons, and software updates. You can use Peer-to-Peer updating and update your tablet directly from your neighbor’s Agapao tablet. (See “How do I do a P2P update?”)

    Why do I need to update? I have not heard all the sermons in my language yet. When I have heard them all, then I will update to get the new ones I have not heard.

Updating is not just about the new sermons. It is about getting the latest software and content so your tablet works at its full potential. When you have downloaded the latest updates, your tablet has the same software as a brand new one. We are constantly trying to improve the Agapao Tablets. Updating, allows us to give those improvements to everyone, even if they got their tablet years ago.

    Can I add a language to my tablet?

No. Each tablet is set to a specific language set, and it is not designed to be changed. If all the tablets in a region have the same languages, then we can use P2P updating across the whole region. Adding a language would break P2P on your tablet, and then your tablet could only be updated over the Internet.

By design all tablets in the region have the same languages installed.

    Can I use the Internet on my cell phone, so I can update my Agapao tablet?

Most smart phones can be turned into “Hot Spots” that allow you to connect other devices, so they can use the phone’s Internet access. Look in Settings on your phone for “Hotspot” or “Tethering” and turn it on. Then, connect your tablet to the new access point that shows up in Settings, WiFi on your tablet.
