Hello,

 

I know that there is a feature on the Tablet settings to upgrade, but it doesn't actually do anything, it checks and never finds any updates, even though it is an old Android version now, I think it was Jelly Bean or Ice Cream Sandwich.

 

How would I upgrade manually?

If it doesn't upgrade then the manufacturer doesn't have it on their list. Whats is the make and model of said tablet? If you're set on having the latest version of Android you could always root the tablet and install a custom ROM. However there are risks with rooting the device.

It is a CnM Touchpad 7, and I am not sure of how to root it.

There are literally thousands of articles on rooting. Google is your best friend with that. From what I'm seeing there are no plans to upgrade past 4.0 for your tablet.

You could contact them for a direct answer.

I did contact them once, they just gave me some blah blah answer on how they won't push updates through the device, instead I can use their custom software to update to the latest firmware, when I tried that it didn't work at all, and they didn't know why either, and ended up ignoring me. :(

As I said earlier check the manufacturer website to see if your make and model is even listed for an upgrade. Otherwise your only other option is to root the device.
