It has been found that many Android Phone users tend to ask this question,

Do i need to Root my Phone before i update with this firmware?

The answer is “NO” as rooting is different from the firmware update. Rooting basically opens up the device with which you can even access the system level files which cannot be done in a non-rooted phone. This firmware update doesn’t require you to root your phone before you proceed for the firmware update. Another thing is that if you have already rooted your phone before then after applying this firmware the root access will be revoked and then again you will have to root your device to get the root access.

Many of the users have misconceptions that rooting and updating with the beta ROMs is both at the same, but actually it’s not the case.

In the due course of this article we will not only see just procedure on how you can update this firmware but also we will go through some interesting sections like the Pre upgrade instructions, improvements in this firmware version and then followed by the instructions on how you can update your phone.

For your convenience, we have splitted the article into different pages and every page contains the each section differently as once you get used to with any part or section of the whole procedure then you can just afford to skip those steps smartly as all you will have to do is to just skip the section and can move to the next page.

So, let’s first see on what are the enhancements this update has come with and then followed by which we will see on what are the pre upgrade instructions followed by the instructions to update.
