  • Plus help me. I try to upgrade my honor 4x to Android lollipop,but the problem is..almost 3 hrs not yet finished…is this normal or what…

    • Hi, this is not normal for phone to take 3 hours to complete update, try to cancel and start update again, I am sure you have already backed up your data from internal storage.

  • it normal to show some text like:” your phone software is updating, please wait. and do not press any key.” and the next line says:” update failed shut down device now.”? I’ve tried 3 times and no results, also I’ve got back-up already…
    Please help me. I’m so confused.
    My e-mail is:

    • Yes this can happen, please backup your SD card and format it. Then create folder named dload, then update your phone. It should work smoothly, if you still feel problem, please feel free to contact me. Thank you
