    • Saif October 29, 2016 at 9:21 am #

      After downloading it, extract the package. You will see “UPDATE.APP” file under dload folder.
      Copy this folder to the root of memory card.
      Now open “Settings > Update > Menu > Local Update”.
      You will see the downloaded file as “Full Package: UPDATE.APP”.

    Why is it saying system update failed. I put dload folder from may laptop with in it i tried so many times to update but y is it saying system update failed press any key to shut doan system. Pls help tnx

    • Saif November 13, 2016 at 9:28 am #

      The File is very huge, and you need to download the complete file in one go. 🙁
      The most common reason why it say’s System update failed is that you have downloaded the file in parts, i.e. pausing and resuming the file. 🙁
      You can re download the file and try again 🙂

      • saidul islam December 18, 2016 at 6:09 pm #

    Hi.. In ABUDHABI (UAE) is it possible to update..?

    • Saif November 8, 2016 at 9:51 pm #

      Yes…But you will need a different package.
      I think by this time you would have received a notification for the update on your device. 🙂
      You can update over the Air. 🙂

  28. Mano November 8, 2016 at 9:48 pm #

    Installation failed update to lalipop what’s prblms plz update the lalipop version

    • Saif January 19, 2017 at 9:20 pm #

      Most common reason for getting error is that the file is not downloaded properly.
      As the file is very huge, resuming and pausing the download can damage the file 🙁
      So make sure you download it in one go 🙂
