AnonD-291211, 02 Oct 2014I think system wont allow you to update kitkat through FOTA unless you installed last 1.18.40.... moreIf I told you that a few people had the phones ruined in trying to upgrade from 1.14…
By downloading file from FOTA site to their computers or phone manually, which triggered upgrade, that left phone bricked…
That's why I wrote that warnings, so nobody here tries to do that.
And when on subject of what NOT to do - try to do update with full rather than flat battery, ok?
I think system wont allow you to update kitkat through FOTA unless you installed last 184.108.40.206 update. so there is no fear of ruining phone.
Vylet, 02 Oct 2014Does zenfone 5 have video call? Does it keep showing the sd icon on top if the notification?No it does not.
As for SD icon in notification - it shows it everytime you boot up the phone, and you have SD card inserted.
Pull the notification down and it will show SD card with options to unmount it or to open it to see contents.
Just slide it to the right, to remove it from notification bar if it bothers you.
AnonD-295960, 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 220.127.116.11 installed as a complete firmware installation.
Then 18.104.22.168 (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 22.214.171.124 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.
