GS511, 06 Sep 2014Abhay Do we have to reinstall all the apps or is there any way out. GauravUnfortunately there is no other way, you will have to install them all, but need not to download all of'em. Just use applications like "app backup" and take backup of all the apps and games (You will get *.apk file of each app/game you will backup using this) and you can install these apps without downloading them from playstore again.

So Finally Kitkat it is!!!
Even though at first attempt I was not happy with the way these update landed but It's quit interesting because now I can update as many M2 as I wish to.
Good things about update are:
Nice interface, issue with phone-book resolved, NQ and other apps can be removed without root, Fast UI, Display quality seems to have improved a bit, Auto brightness option has improved, improved call log, battery life is improved a little, and all other kitkat features are there.
Things which I didn't like;
Badly missing the battery and short-cut widget of previous ROM, Even as claimed by gionee that update won't remove my data, I lost everything, luckily I was having backup of everything. GPS looks little lost during few occasions.
So my verdict is, go for it and update your device ASAP.
I send quality is cleanest but to low send it is hardly audible in crowd i can help ringtone when it rings in crowded place
Abhay Pratap Singh, 06 Sep 2014Updated :) Setting up my device and will post the detailed experience soon :) Seems good (... morePlz Mr. Abhay, post the procedure soon... I m a windows 8 user and dying for this update!!!!!!
Updated :) Setting up my device and will post the detailed experience soon :) Seems good
(Did it with windows 8.1)
1. It will work on Win 7 not on Win 8. I tried on both and succeeded in Win 7.
2. Then install android driver. No need to connect mobile with PC. You may get some pop-ups during installation. Just click "Install anywhere" option every time. You will get a dialogue box stating successfully installed.
3. Open Flash tool
4. Select scatter loading and browse "MT6592_Android_scatter"
6. Switch off your mobile
7. Connect with PC by USB cable.
8. It will start updating. You can see status bar and finally will get a pop-up "Firmware upgrade".
9. Disconnect mobile and then switch on.
10. It will start updating / configuring applications.
IT IS DONE.
However, I faced some problems. All my earlier applications and games disappeared from the mobile. I could not locate them.
I reinstall all of them.
Another problem is phone memory reduced to only 340 MB in my 4Gb model. Which was earlier around 1.4 Gb.
Rest of the things are OK. There some good features in 4.4.2. It is not 4.4.4.
