Gautam Goel, 02 Oct 2014Your reaction/review please to the updateafter update phone run smooth as before. Rest can be shared after thorough usage. New do not disturb icon added to quick lunch settings, RAM boost icon on quick lunch section got a make over look. This is just first look.
KitKat update is now ready.
It is the same file as what I've used for the past couple of days, however note one thing - you MUST install that last JB update before installing this 480 MB update, or else please wait and install the full 800 MB KitKat file from the Asus website.
If you have skipped ANY of the updates on JellyBean, then any errors that you are experiencing now will be migrated into KitKat.
Do NOT update OTA to KitKat if you have got your phone with say 1.14 and you only applied 1.18 as it will cause phone to misbehave quite badly.
This update is ONLY for those who have had all the previous updates installed OTA, or had 18.104.22.168 installed as a complete firmware installation.
Then 22.214.171.124 (last JB update) fixes a potential crash of the phone during the upgrade to KitKat.
Do NOT attempt to load the FOTA KK file without 126.96.36.199 update installed as it could toast your phone and you would not be able to boot it anymore.
Sorry for these warnings - but I don't want you guys to ruin your phone on update.
The full KitKat WW firmware will be on Asus site within a day or 2.
That one requires no previous updates.
Does zenfone 5 have video call? Does it keep showing the sd icon on top if the notification?

[deleted post]Yes and no.
It's released for China and Taiwan SKU. But not for WW SKU.
Asus has announced on Twitter that the Android 4.4 KitKat update has started rolling out for the Asus ZenFone 4. It's a bit late now to do this but better late than never.Meanwhile, those who bought the bigger and more expensive ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 6 are understandably miffed as their phones are still running Jelly Bean. Asus hasn't commented on when these phones will be getting the KitKat update. So it means kitkat for Z5 is not yet released?
