Downloading Android 4.4 2 from the Google Play Store
If you’re looking to install Android 4.4 (KitKat) on your device, the easiest way is to download and install the update from the Google Play Store. This guide will walk you through the steps necessary to get Android 4.4 installed on your device.
To begin, open the Google Play Store app on your device and search for “Android 4.4.” Once the results appear, tap on the first result, which will be a link to an APK file that you can download and install on your device.
Once you’ve downloaded and installed the update, open up the Settings app on your device and click on “System > About Phone.” Next, tap on “Build number” seven times until a message appears saying “You are now a developer.” After you’ve done this, return to the System settings screen and click on “Developer options.” From here, enabled “USB debugging” and enable ” ADB debugging” so that you can connect your device to your computer and use ADB commands to sideload updates or Root your device.
Enabling Developer Options
1. Open the Developer Options on your device by going to Settings > About Phone and tap on the build number 7 times. 2. Go back to the Developer Options and select “Enabling developer options.” 3. Enable USB debugging from within the Developer Options, by ticking the box next to “USB Debugging” 4. Connect your device to your computer using a USB cable 5. Launch Android Studio and click on the “Open project” button 6. Navigate to where you saved your project file – for this example, we’ll use sample-project-name/AndroidManifest.xml 7. Click on the “Root” tab in Android Studio 8. In the “Root required” field, type in cwm 9. Click OK 10. Click on OK again in Android Studio 11. In the command line window that pops up, type:
su cwm 12

Changing the Baseband Version
There are a few ways to change the baseband version on an Android device.
The simplest way is to go to Settings, then About Phone and tap on Baseband Version several times until you get to a new version number. The most common baseband versions are 2.3.7, 2.3.8, 2.3.9, and 3.0 (Eclair).
If you have access to ADB and Fastboot, you can use the following commands to update your baseband: adb reboot bootloader fastboot flash radio For example, if your device is running a radio named “t-mobile,” you would enter: adb reboot bootloader fastboot flash radio t-mobile update_file .
If you don’t have access to ADB or Fastboot, or if you just want to try out a new baseband version before installing it, you can download a new firmware file from Google or one of the other providers and use CF-Auto-Root to install it on your device.
Making a Nandroid Backup
If you want to keep your Android phone safe and secure, you should make a nandroid backup. This is a complete backup of your device, including all of its settings, apps, photos, videos, contacts, and more. You can restore your nandroid backup if something happens to your phone and you need to restore its original configuration. To make a nandroid backup: 1. Open the Settings app on your Android device.
2. Under “General,” tap “Backup & Reset.”
3. Under “Backup,” tap “Nandroid Backup.”
4. Select the date and time for the backup to be created.
5. Tap “Create Backup.”
Installing ADB and Fastboot
If you want to root your Android device, you’ll need to install ADB and Fastboot. ADB (Android Debug Bridge) is a tool that lets you communicate with your Android device over USB. It’s installed on most computers, so you don’t need to worry about downloading and installing it. Fastboot is another tool that’s useful for rooting and flashing firmware images.
Flashing the New Android 4.4 2 Firmware on Your Device
If you’re itching to flash the latest Android 4.4 software update on your device, but don’t want to go through the trouble of rooting it first, you’re in luck. Here’s how to do it:
1. Open up a command prompt window by pressing Windows+R and typing “cmd” in the search box.
2. When the Command Prompt window appears, type the following commands one at a time and press Enter after each one: adb reboot bootloader fastboot flash radio zImage
3. When prompted, type yes when asked to verify the flash operation. (If all goes well, your device will reboot and you’ll be running Android 4.4.)
Restarting Your Phone
If you ever need to restart your phone, there are a few different ways to do it. You can use the Power button, Volume down button and Power button simultaneously, or you can go into Settings > Wireless and Networks > Mobile networks and tap on Restart.
