    Hi,

    I successfully updated the device to android KitKat 4.4.2 but there is huge loss for the signals, the main drawback. Sometimes, it shows error that keyboard has stopped working and internet get disconnected automatically its something minor.

    Jelly bean was far good in battery backup but KitKat is draining the battery out very fast.

    Dear all, I am also facing the same issue.. firstly i am unable to download the 4MB update even after factory reset. Getting some type of error. Also my phone was bricked for few minutes when I tried updating kitkat version. plzz help….From what I read from online comments, it seems the new update is worsening the performance like battery drain, network loss, heating up, etc. having said that few people have experienced improvement as well…Now m really confused πŸ™

    Hi,

    While updating I am getting the following error:

    Warning:
    No file_contextsVerifying current system…

    “/system/bin/app_process” has unexpected contents.

    Update.zip is not correct.

    Installation aborted

    Some people have faced this error when they have installed xposed framework. But there’s no such thing in my case, still I am not able to update my OS in Q1010i. Please help

      hi rishi..,i had the same prob and here u go–*solution*–“before u update with ‘298mb’ file u must first download and install a ‘4mb’ file OTA(over the air) u can do that by clicking on “check for updates” under “SYSTEM UPDATES” .After that u can get kitkat either OTA or using a PC.
      thank me later πŸ™‚

            hey,bhavesh…mine isn’t rooted too, so don’t panic (–_–).
            i’ll just tell u what i did:
            1.downloaded the ‘298mb’ file from xolo update website.
            2.clicked settings->about phone->check for updates.
            3.then a message popped up showing–“new update available(4mb)”. i clicked on it πŸ™‚
            4.and then my phone rebooted extracting and unpacking the updates.
            5.i placed the “UPDATE.ZIP(298MB)” file in my sd card. (note–don’t place it under any sub-folder)
            6.then went to “XOLO CARE app”–>swipe to the left-> then click check for updates then click continue.

            ~~TA DA~~ πŸ˜€

            personal opinion — u dont really have to upgrade it to ‘kit kat’ u can stick with ‘jelly bean’ if u like it i’ll tell u some of the advantages–
            ^*improved my sound quality which was fluctuating before
            ^*uses less ram and also increased my battery life by 20min(tried playing dead space + watching a video at the same time”gplayer”).
            ^*and u can look like a coolest kid in ur school/college with kitkat–that’s why i did it :p πŸ˜‰ .

            Hi Pavan,
            I am not able to see any 4 mb update. I received a 4 mb update initially and I installed it.After that also I was not able to install the 298MB update. then I reset my phone to factory settings. Aftar factory reset I am not able to see the 4 mb update at all and 298 mb update is giving error (even when I instal from sd card) :(:(!!

            (July 2, 2014 - 8:33 am)

            oh….wait i think i get ur problem.
            When u click -“check for updates”- u must get any one of these :-
            1.”Already up to date no new updates available”
            2.”new update available (**mb)”
            3. If it checks for updates and then closes without any message–“U R DOING IT WRONG!!(–_–)”

            if ur problem is no.3 u must keep trying again, and again, and again πŸ˜€ u’ll get the message…, Eventually πŸ™‚

            btw dont keep the update.zip file in ur sdcard or ur phone storage while doin this.
