    Default How do I upgrade my Alcatel ot- 995 from 2.3 to Jelly Bean?

    Hi,

    I am in Kenya and recently purchased the Alcatel ot- 995. Tried upgrading my OS using FOTA and I get the message "No updated information is available now." The phone comes with Android 2.3 which sucks and I got it with the knowledge that I would be able to upgrade it.
    PS: The download on the Alcatel site didn't work either.
    Please help.Thanks.

    If no update is available it's because the manufacture hasn't updated the phone. If it is currently on 2.3 (Gingerbread), chances are that it'll not get an official Jellybean release, or Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) for that matter.

    a, Uno, Alca995 cannot be updated up JB, however there's a ICS update. Try to find it. Istvan, Hungary

    Assuming that you have some knowledge on how to tamper with Android phones.

    Yes, it is possible to upgrade the Alcatel One Touch 995 but with unofficial firmware. I point out for you to watch this thread

    Not if no one develops a ROM for it. In this case it appears no one has. All they appear to have done was develop a Gingerbread ROM that looks a little like Ice Cream Sandwich. Sorry.

    Root just grants the user access to the system files.

    Note, this is an extremely low power phone. I really don't think you want to mess with it.

    You can search for devices you are interested in trying to upgrade on this site. They tell you what is possible, where to get it and how to do it.

    I'm confused. Isn't android standard like IOS? Jelly bean is jellybean isn't it? Or does it have to be tailored to each phone? I mean isn't there a generic android everyone can upgrade or that's not how it works?

    No, Android runs on many devices so there are differences. IOS runs on limited devices. Even in Apple's case it is questionable whether a ROM from an iPod would run on an iPhone.

    Alcatel One Touch OT-995 Firmware Upgrade Android 4.0.4 ICS Worked for me. Just follow the instructions to the letter.
