I currently have version V184.108.40.206 on my zenfone 5. I purposely didn’t upgrade it to kitkat as i came to know about the various bugs it has, but today when i tried to check for a upgrade it was showing me as “No new upgrade available”
Being still on jellybean it should show me the kitkat upgrade as it did 2 days ago but now there is no kitkat update available. I later checked on their website to do a manual update but i couldn’t find any kitkat firmware.
So my question is, is ASUS discontinuing the kitkat update due to a lot of bugs that it has?

But not to writing to SD card or pendrive.
you need to do full restore from recovery partition and most of your problems will go away.
However on writing to SD - sorry, KitKat no longer allows that unless you root the phone and make apps to run under superuser.
Tomazz, 08 Oct 2014It is battery fix.It is stable or not? Can I update it now?
krish, 08 Oct 2014hi sir,
i already installed 18.104.22.168 directly from 1.14 with ur clear support. not tried 2... more22.214.171.124 is having a different recovery partition and readies the system for the KitKat update whenever you choose to do it, if ever.
As it was specifically made to allow update to KitKat, which was later scrapped, they have scrapped this update as well.
If you do KitKat update, since it's a different OS, I recommend you do it by loading the complete firmware and not any OTA.

That is KitKat limitation and you can read about "KitKat broke my SD card" etc. articles all over the internet.
In a gist - applications can read from anywhere. But they can only write to the folders they created themselves on SD card. They can't write to folders of other applications.
