Where there’s an update on Galaxy Fame Duos GT-S6812B, there’s a way. If your device experiences a new Android version, you’ll both benefit a lot. See how by keeping an eye on this tutorial.
An upgrade is always recommended. The reason behind this: your phone’s OS will receive stuff which can improve its performance. Not only that, but you as an user will enjoy things that weren’t there when you first bought your phone.
Here to bring you all of this and more is Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean VJANE1. Released this June officially for Brazil, the firmware delivers all the goodies that are expected of it. That being said, here is what the new tool brings: a new keyboard and extended Vsync timing. These first two novelties are followed by others. They’re a fixed frame of 60 fps and touch anticipation. The rest of the additions are triple buffering, mini apps and group cast. Sync and connect email updates will also be part of your device.

- After you use the cable we advised you to use, the Odin will begin to look for the S6812B. Upon discovering it, the same Odin is going to do this: display a sign whose color will be blue.
- Your next task is this: tale the firmware file and move it to the AP / PDA. After that, activate these boxes: F. Reset Time and Auto Reboot.
- Uncheck Re-partition as soon as you’re done and then tap this: “Start“. The activation of this option allows the installation of the upgrade firmware.
- Around 15 minutes will pass till the flashing is finished. So expect this message to pop up when that happens: “Pass”. This message will be displayed in a green background.
- Then you’ll see that your phone reboots. These mark the actual end of the firmware’s installation. As well as the fact that you can go and disconnect the devices form one another.
