Tomazz, 10 Oct 2014You put the file that has _user in name into the phone. You don't unzip further.hi Tomazz,
i updated my phone manually from 1.18.9 to1.18.10. its about 600 plus mb in size...i would like to know if it does contain all the updates that i missed from versions 15, 16 and 17?...now my phone detects the kitkat update but im in doubt if its already been fixed by asus..asus pulled out the kitkat update coz it was prematurely released right?...please adavice the best way to update my phone..OTA or manually?..does it nessesary to update the battery fix?..
Tomazz, 10 Oct 2014You put the file that has _user in name into the phone. You don't unzip further.Ok so after i put the _user name folder, what will i do next?
another question, updating through OTA is ok? i mean directly download from wifi?
Have any one tried 18.104.22.168. I think battery draining problem is some how controlled and now within the acceptable limit. after 2 hrs of update only i have loose 3% battery while mobile data is on with 3G and whatsapp is also active and other SIM for voice calling is also ON. right now i am trying to full charge the battery for better observation. will update after 24 hrs observation. but right now i'm feeling great !
What do you with "safe"? if you are asking how is it, well, there are some bugs I encountered, some here said that they did't but that's what I have now. Battery in kitkat drains faster, but a battery fix update has been released. Somehow, battery was improved but not that much (for me, or maybe i mess too much with my phone). You can ask Tomazz for more information, he knows more than me. :)
Jana, 10 Oct 2014I updated kitkat. please send send battery fix update url.
Here is the battery fix URL:
This is a FOTA only - meaning only a battery fix and you must have 22.214.171.124 already loaded.
It does NOT check what's installed and will brick your phone if you try to install it on any other version.

You might in some cases also need to reboot the phone for it to be detected. Or in some cases wait a few minutes...
which mobile is best Asus zenfone 5 or Moto G2 .
GsmArena rated Zenfone over Moto G2 . What about the Battery and heating problems... Why was it rated more than Moto G2...??
Got my Zenfone 5 yesterday. Got a prompt for an update which brought Build number to 126.96.36.199. It was just a 20mb update. I am assuming the previous updates got skipped. Still haven't updated to Kitkat. Does UL-ASUS_T00F-WW-188.8.131.52-user on support.asus.com contain all the previous fixes or have they been skipped for good on my phone?

" the phone turns on into a DOS looklike" - Are you talking about Droidboot version?
If so what I see is Reboot Droidboot,Reboot,Recovery,Factory Rest,Last Successful Flasg Log and Power Off.
if I click on the Recovery,,it boot into recovery and I get the android with a triangle symbol.From there I get get into
recovery menu by Volume - ,then Volume + and then release voulme + ,and release VOlume - will take me to the menu whehter I cal do a Wipr cache partition ,Wide Cache/Data,Adb sideload etc.
In none of these menu I am not able to see "Restore From Recovery"?

I do not know h... moreIf you are loading NEWER version of the firmware than what you currently have loaded, you should be able to just download the full firmware file, unzip it and drop it in the root of the internal storage.
That won't work with same or older version.

The factory reset in settings only deletes the settings, but does not rebuild the partition.
The full reset is actually done like this:
- turn off the phone
- wait 10 seconds
- press power and volume down buttons at the same time and hold them
- the phone turns on into a DOS looklike
- release the buttons, and press volume up to confirm
- now choose Restore from Recovery Partition
- wait till it completes and reboots the phone
Let me know if you still have issues after that.
debp, 09 Oct 2014Thanks for the reply. If you don't mind, can you again post link for recovery partition restor... moreThe links on my server are for both TOOJ and TOOF although there is only TOOF written in the name,
