    Installing Android 4.4 Kitkat in Galaxy S Advance

    Samsung Galaxy S Advance I9070 is a very less known Smartphone. This device simply comes for Rs.15000. The device comes with good hardware that seems it can run Android 4.4 Kitkat operating system. As per the official specification this device has Android v2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system. Which his quiet outdated today. It provide you TouchWiz 4.0. The phone is powered by 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A9, Dual Core processor and has a 768MB of ram support. It also has a Mali-400MP gpu. The phone features a 4 Inches Super AMOLED screen which offer you a max resolution of 800x400.

    As per camera this device gives you a 5 Megapixel primary camera and 1.3 Megapixel secondary Camera. The primary camera is supported by led flash. It runs on 1500 mAh battery. For storage you get round 16GB of internal space while you can also expand that upto 32 GB. This device is released long back and has a very outdated OS. Till yet there is no OTA update provided on the same. But you can still install the latest android kitkat rom on the same. Remember this is a unofficial method which will lose the device warranty.


    Requirements:

    • Start with taking your entire device backup through Samsung Kies. We are going to flash the rom so it will wipe out everything.
    • Charge your phone to maximum before going ahead.
    • You will need to root the device first. And install a custom recovery. I had provided the process below for that.
    • Update the latest usb drivers of your pc and then only move ahead.
    • Download Rooting package of Samsung Galaxy S Advance I9070.
    • Download Cyanogen Mod 11 Firmware Package
    • Download Google Apps Package
