Pre Requisites:

  • First up you will have to proceed to charge the phone as you need to at least have 70% plus battery charge left in your phone so as to just ensure that the phone doesn’t get turned off in the process of firmware update.
  • Once the phone is charged to the sufficient level, you now need to proceed to create the backup of all the data which is stored in the phone so as to just ensure that the

SMS – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Contacts – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log - Call Log and Restore
Images, Songs, Videos, Files – Copy to internal / External SD Card,
APN and MMS Settings – Note down from the path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

  • So, once you are done with the backup, you will now need to proceed to close all the antivirus tools which are there in the computer followed by the PC Suites if any are installed in the computer as these tools generally end up interrupting the process of the firmware update. Ensure that that the PC on which you will be using the PC for updating is having the full access or the admin rights in your computer or else the phone won’t be detected in the Odin.
