- Create a backup of all the data which is there in your phone so that you can then restore back the data after the data if any is lost after the firmware update.
Text messages – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Phone Contacts – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log – Call Log and Restore
Pictures, Music, Videos, Files etc.– Copy to internal / External SD Card,
Internet & MMS Settings – Backup all the settings from the path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names”
- Before proceeding you will have to ensure that the battery charge is minimum of around 60% so as to just make sure that the phone doesn’t get turned Off in the process of firmware update.
- Also, close all the tools like KIES, Antivirus as well as Firewalls completely as these tools tend to interrupt the process of firmware update.
