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.

  • Chinon

    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”?
