    Is there any to get my Huawei ascend G600 to update to the newest/latest version of Android?

    Its current android version is 4.0.4 ice cream sandwich, also I have rooted the phone so if the only way to do it is via root, then well got any tips or that.

    I'm asking this, cause the phone is slowing down (apps take about 1-2 minutes to open, its also slow at loading icons,pics, emails, etc), i also have noticed that a game will get to a point before I get "game name has stopped" or " game name has stopped working" or "game name has stopped responding"

    1) The phone is over 2 years old, so other than custom ROMs, there's little chance of a new version of Android for it.

    2) The phone has 768MB of RAM. Newer apps use more RAM as time goes on. (People write apps that will work in current phones, they don't use older phones to develop apps.) As time goes on, if you update your apps, or install new ones, you'll notice it getting worse and worse. And a newer version of Android won't fix that problem.

    The reason you can renew a contract and get a new phone every 2 years (and sometimes more often) isn't only greed, it's that a 2 year old phone can't run the latest apps well. Even the flagship phone of today will be feeling its age by 3 years from now.

    So I'll be better off getting a new phone instead
