How To Upgrade Your Android OS To 4.4 Kitkat



I was so fascinated by the Techno Phantom Z advert I saw during the cause of watching the Brazil 2014 World Cup,  and I must tell you this is the badest kind of device Techno Company has ever produce cos it came with 4.4 kitkat  with octa core processor and 16mp camera. Let’s wait till it arrival.


If you are not using 4.4 Kitkat OS, then you are closer to a destination I can’t simply Phantom. To all Samsung Galaxy S GT19000 users, follow the below steps to upgrade to kitkat if you’ve not done so

Before you begin…

==> make sure your Android Battery is above 50%. Also, make sure that the USB Debugging is enabled from the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”, enable the USB Debugging in your device.
==> Make sure your Galaxy S device is rooted or not by using  ROM Manager app. ROM Manager app can be installed from the Google PLAY Store. 

If it’s rooted, continue to the below, if not request for a guide on how to root it.

How To Upgrade To 4.4Kitkat
·   ==>      Download the Kit Kat 4.4 Package from here to your computer. Once downloaded, connect your phone to the computer with the help of original USB cable and place these two zip files in your device.
·   ==>     Turn Off your Phone so that it can be entered in the Recovery Mode. Recovery mode in Galaxy S GT I9000 can be entered by pressing the Volume Up Key + Menu Button and then press the Power button. Just in case if the device gets turned ON in the normal mode, then you will have to retry the process of entering the device in the Recovery Mode.
· ==>        Just in case if your device refuses to enter into the recovery mode, download the “ROM Manager” app from the Google PLAY Store, install custom Recovery image and then enter the device into the recovery mode with the help of ROM Manager.
·==>   In recovery mode, select “install zip from SD Card” to choose the KitKat 4.4 Firmware Package and then the Google Apps Package. Please note that, it might take around 4 – 5 minutes for applying the update. Once updated, select “Go Back” and choose the option of “Reboot System Now” for rebooting the device.

Note: Just in a rare case if the device doesn’t boot up or show the home screen then remove the battery and reinsert the same to boot the device again in the normal mode.
You can check the firmware update from the path “Settings > About Phone > Firmware Version” where the firmware update version will be mentioned.

    1. It is caused atimes by an unusual virus on your system. The question is do you have active antivirus install on your system? if yes, Scan completely your system. And if you don't have an updated antivirus on your system, I'll suggest you first of all system restore it to a month earlier then download avast antivirus.
