  • Don’t use HTC Sync to back up all the data so as to make sure that just in case if the data gets lost or corrupted, the same can be restored with the help of below mentioned steps manually. Please note that just in case if the data gets lost or corrupted, the same can be restored easily.

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

  • From the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”, you need to enable the USB Debugging option. Also, disable all the security suites installed in your device as these tools tend to interrupt the process of firmware update. Minimum battery charge left in the device should be > 50% so as to make sure that the device doesn’t get turned off in the middle of firmware update.
