Using Asus zenfone 5 A501CG model.
I m from India and using zenfone 5 since a couple of weeks. I am currently on version T00J_WW_user_188.8.131.52_20140903_9870 (got to this version today itself; earlier it was 1.18.40.09).
I must say this is a gr8 handset and true value for money at this price. I am a moderate user and I haven't faced any kind of issues yet.
Now, i've an OTA update available to version 184.108.40.206 which is of 457.57 MB.
I've been a regular viewer of this thread and have almost read all the views and problems faced by users who updated to KK via OTA.
I just wanted to ask whether is this the final update for KK which was in Beta? Can i update to this via OTA or should I wait for the same to be posted on Asus's site and then perform a manual update?
I am raising this question as i had read that Asus had held back the OTA updates because of the bugs and issues the users had to face.
Kindly reply to my queries.
Would also like to thank you. You are doing a wonderful job out there by helping users and providing solutions to their problems. There are very few such ppl who take their time out to help others.
Thank you once again.

pooja, 10 Nov 2014battery backup problem, while charging the phone its takes two hours... n while using mobile. ... moreI came out from home at cuttack orissa at morning 5.30 AM for another city kolkata by train. I used for calling(made 6 calls with approx. 3 -4 mint each). Used net for Banking, little bit facebook twice,checked 2 incoming whatsapp messages,no music. when i reached my room doesn't have power so used my mobile as emergency light for approx. 25-30 minutes. In between i never charged my mobile. I used Reliance 2g for internet which is quite fast. I made internet off for two hours during journey. At 6PM evening i had 51% battery left. So i don't think it's that bad.
I can't video call on my Asus Zenfone 5 and even can't voice calls from fb Messanger. Is it hardware or software problem?
Sta-ko, 10 Nov 2014What sideload means? sideload is a way to install something on the device when its not booted.switch off the phone and then press power and volume up button together untill a menu appears, its called bootloader. used for troubleshooting.. from there go to recovery and once on recovery ,connect your phone to your pc vis usb cable, then by running few commands ,we can install any firmware , this is also manual method of firmware installing, for more detail, you should check xda forum

This is a widget whih shows next 3 calendar events,last 3 SMS and last 3 calls in Pane manner(I mean one at a time)

Mine has Chinese numbers written under the Arabic numbers on the calendar.
In Jelly Bean it definitely didn't have any Chinese. In early KitKat... not sure, never noticed... Ah well, it's beta afterall :)
