TC8000 Operating System Lollipop Rev A v22.06 Non-GMS Release Notes


What makes TC8000 so special? Everything. It’s the ground-breaking all new warehouse mobile computer designed to deliver revolutionary productivity increases in the warehouse. In fact, on average, it saves 14% per worker versus the traditional form factors. It’s the only device in the market that simplifies it all — how your workers physically use the device and interact with your warehouse application. TC8000 minimizes motion with an innovative scan angle that eliminates the thousands of times your workers need to tilt their device to see the screen. We integrated flexible handheld and hands-free scanning for an extra productivity boost — another industry handheld first. It’s an amazing 33 percent lighter than the traditional device to minimize fatigue. Then we did something completely unprecedented by a device manufacturer — we integrated a tool that allows you to automatically transform your legacy Terminal Emulation (TE) “green screens” into elegant, graphics-based All-touch TE screens that are not only highly intuitive, but also dramatically reduce the number of interactions required to complete a task — no coding and no modifications to your host application are required. The result? Less time to complete the job and increased productivity. The TC8000 — the next big thing in warehouse mobility, only from Zebra.

ZEBRA TC8000 Lollipop REV A v22.06 with Non-GMS 


Special Notes:

·       This software supports SE4850 scan engine.

·      The first upgrade from Android KitKat to Lollipop will take longer than previous software updates at about 8 minutes, due to boot-up time of 7 minutes. This is due to Android Lollipop pre-optimization, whereby the Applications/Settings will be initiated on boot-up.

·       Boot-up time is expected to be longer when performing reboot after Factory Reset or Enterprise Reset because of the reasons stated above.

·       Lollipop has built-in mechanism to update the scanner firmware automatically..
