  • Thanks for your patience!!

    There are two ways to update your android device, and/or smartphone.

    1. Recommended way
    2. Not-recommended way


    Recommended way is recommended because it preserves your rights to get support and warrenty from the manufacturer.

    Non-recommended way is non-recommended because it voids your rights to get support (remain in supported state) if followed. You cannot ask for support from the manufacturer if you follow the non-recommended way. It leaves you on-your-own.

    The ways on how to
    ==================

    In any of these cases do check the battery status of the device first and make sure that power is available all the time.

    Do keep a backup of your phone before proceding with any of the steps given below.

    1.
    Recommended way to go to your Phone Settings Option and check the About Phone Option.
    Then click on check to update .
    The phone will now automnatically check if there is an update available to the device or not
    and if there is an update available. > There it gives you the option to update the device firmware right-away.
    This option is very good as it is tried-and-tested before hands in the labs and then is rolled out to the end-user for him to update the software.
    If your phone is in warrenty period then i would suggest you to go to a service center and get the update done from the support guys at the service center itself.
    This method is recommended. It is well created for protecting you from failures and is official one.


    2.
    The unrecommended method is to update the device software / firmware manually.
    After you follow these steps .
    The support is liable to lapse.
    It(The device) won't be considered as supported from the official service centers.

    It leaves you on-your-own.

    THIS METHOD IS CALLED ROOTING (AND IT IS NOT-RECOMMENDED)

    Here is the link to an article on How-to ROOT your android device:

    Here it differs from device to device.
    but the general guidelines are same.

    Not to mention you will need to setup your Google Account again after the update

    AND

    Do keep a backup of your phone before proceding with any of the steps given above.
