Installation Procedure (Recommended)
Connect your phone to a PC using USB cable
Format your SD card in FAT32 and create a new folder “dload” in its root directory
Extract the ZIP file and copy its contents (“UPDATE.APP”) to the “dload” folder
Disconnect your phone from PC
Reboot into recovery mode by powering off your phone and then holding Volume Down + Volume Up + Power Buttons simultaneously
Within a few seconds, the update process will be automatically initiated. It will take about 3-4 minutes.
When it gets completed, you can use the Backup utility to restore all the data you backed up earlier.
Alternate Method (Easier)
Copy the update contents to your SD card as mentioned earlier
Navigate to Settings > Updates > System Updates
Tap ‘Local Update’, carefully read all the warnings and then perform a quick backup of your device (in case you haven’t done that already)
Next, tap ‘Confirm’ to proceed with the update installation. It shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes.
And whoosh… you’re done! That was damn easy, wasn’t it?
Do bear this in mind that despite the fact that this method has been fully tested, I shall not be held responsible if your device gets screwed up at any point. Apply this update at you own risk.
