  • All the data present in your phone should be backed up as in the process of applying this update, the data might get either lost or corrupted. With the help of below mentioned steps you can easily backup the same. After updating with this release, the KIES won’t recognize the device as it’s a custom ROM firmware.

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

  • Minimum charge left in the device should be at least 60% so as to ensure that device doesn’t get turned Off in the middle of firmware update.
  • Disable all the antivirus suites in your computer and uninstall the same in your device as these tools generally tend to interrupt the process of firmware update.
  • Irrespective of the current firmware you are ON, you need to ensure that you have rooted the same as this firmware can only be applied on the rooted firmwares.

    After installation, this is what happens:

    1. when making calls the screen turns black and after a few seconds a pop up message says, “Unfortunately, the process com.android.phone has stopped.”

    2. The contacts cannot be edited. When the edit icon is pressed the screen turns black and after a few seconds a pop up message says, “Unfortunately, Contancts has stopped.”

    Is there a way to overcome this? Or do I have to reinstall the XXLPQ and not to install this Bezke Ultra to avoid these “freezes”?

      @Rizwan, I’ve got the same problems as you. Don’t worry just reinstall the XXLPQ and it works fine without the Bezke Ultralcs 4.0.
