AnonD-308768, 03 Oct 2014Dear tomaz ...please help...earlier I did fota update of 18.104.22.168 and missed full update ...n... more22.214.171.124 is needed to avoid crashes in the middle of Kitkat installation so do not install 2.19 without having it installed first.
126.96.36.199 does not exist as a full firmware, only as a FOTA.
So please follow instructions of one post below.
AnonD-314791, 03 Oct 2014I just checked your site. And i saw a firmware update of 707mb.
What Do i do now? Im down... moreIf you do not yet have 1.18.10, then download and install that one first. You can find it on the same site.
Then install the 2.19.

AminArmani, 03 Oct 2014but in the asus website theres still no full kitkat firmware for ww zenfone 5...It's uploaded, just the link hasn't been created yet.
Obviously you're free to wait and download it from Asus site :)

That way it goes straight to the people who are fixing bugs.
sakthi, 03 Oct 2014I did not get any update to kitkat when will I get it I am from india.what I want to do for thatIf you have 18.104.22.168 JellyBean update loaded, download this file:
Then unzip it and copy the file from inside this ZIP (do NOT unzip any further!) to the internal storage of the phone, to root.
Once copying completes, unplug the cable. You should now see notification in the top bar.
AnonD-313233, 03 Oct 2014I want to wait for couple day to download it. But where I can download that update? By phone o... moreYou can now download the official KitKat from here:
The last one, 2.19.
Obviously you have all other firmwares from 1.14 onwards, should any be needed.
Those are full firmwares.
Please note that it is good to have 22.214.171.124 update installed before applying this new firmware, else it could fail during the upgrade. Not every time, but there's a high chance of failing.
So please first upgrade to 126.96.36.199. Then load this one.
Dear Tomazz kindly help whenever i place a call and hang it,the phone screen goes black.Kitkat update has messed things even while i am having all updates.
When screen goes black it shows that-incall ui is not responding.How to solve this problem.I have even written to asus but no response.I was better in 4.3 than kitkat.Kindly advice what to do
g.C, 03 Oct 2014Hi Tomazz,
Was reading all your comments bout Zen5 and Find5Mini, well not comments but u s... moreOppo Find series has a superior hardware and vastly better front camera, better speaker and to a point even battery life.
However where it falls flat on the face is where Asus beats pretty much all the competitors - and that's in the UI. The ZenUI is miles ahead of the ColorOS, both in terms of stability as well as usability.
And now that Oppo confirmed that KitKat will come with single layer UI (there are no six dots to go to apps drawer, but all is on single layer like iOS) I seriously start to hate it.
Another thing is about the apps on Oppo. For example the email app was probably designed by someone with 27" FHD monitor in portrait orientation, and that person (well, it's Addel Lai, actually - very cute girl and that saves from being flamed even more than she is) did not quite realise that when the same is displayed on a small screen is unreadable.
Maybe superman can see it. But I can't. Letters are like 0.2 mm tall.
Just oversights like these on the ColorOS make me use nearly exclusively Zen (on the go) for any emails or newsletters, while Oppo is usually used for the photography (despite the camera effects are heavily lacking on Oppo, but the overall quality of sensor is incredible) and various messengers.
So both have good and bad parts. Oppo's advantage is in hardware. Zen's advantage is in software and overall user experience.

Tick Back up my data
and tap on Backup account to enter you gmail and password
To automatically restore the settings on factory resetting the phone, enable Automatic Restore as well.
AnonD-314524, 03 Oct 2014sim pin lock is disabled, and i keep on swiping then pattern to unlock.Can you make sure you have backup to GMail account enabled, then do this:
Turn phone off.
Press and hold the volume down button and power button.
The phone will boot to recovery mode.
Use volume up to confirm you want to enter Recovery mode.
Now choose full recovery and confirm it.
NOTE: this will delete all your apps and settings, and you'll get a phone as would come from factory.
After another reboot, the phone should be like new. Set up your account again and wait for the restore from Gmail to load your phonebook, etc.
Open Playstore and re-download your apps.
Please let me know if it all works as it should after that.
