We’re letting you know how to upgrade Galaxy Ace NXT SM-G313H. The procedure in itself is not at all difficult to perform. We are going to help you with everything. So just enjoy this post and the great advantages your phone’ll have after we’re done!

To make sure you don’t do anything wrong, we suggest using the Galaxy Ace NXT today. When you are upgrading a completely different handset model, you will only see it damaged.

The update is going to be helped by Android 4.4.2 KitKat DDU0ANG2. Released for India, this official firmware came out this month. You shouldn’t try and update the smartphone with Samsung’s KIES software. The firmware has a deactivated KIES logo.Galaxy-Ace-NXT-SM-G313H

The benefits of this official firmware

After you make sure that the right device is installed with the Galaxy Ace NXT SM-G313H, you should go on and see what’s in store for it. Having this handset upgraded means access to things that will contribute to a superior device from many points of view. One of them has to do with the CPU: the latter’s about to perform so much better. Besides that, the smartphone’s going to have customization options, and many of them.

Your Galaxy Ace NXT SM-G313H is about to also enjoy superior battery life and new features. The goodies involve new apps and zero bloatware. No viruses or other security problems will affect the handset.

If you have provided your phone with root access at some point, the update will damage it. When done with the upgrade, root access will be revoked. At the end of the procedure you will also end up with a deleted system partition. The following won’t be affected: internal / external SD cards and major data.


You have to pay close attention to these important requirements:

  • deactivate, on your Samsung SM-G313H, the pre-installed security programs;
  • turn off those installed on your notebook;
  • you need to provide some backups to save the phone’s content from being erased;
  • perform a full NANDroid backup via these instructions;
  • Windows must be the only version of OS on your notebook;
  • install USB drivers for the phone on the notebook by accessing this website;
  • the smartphone’s USB Debugging should be activated next;
  • the battery on your handset must be fully charged.

Step by step instructions

  1. The action that you should begin with first needs you to download the Odin v3.09 on your notebook. The file is here. Follow this action up with a second one: download the Android 4.4.2 KitKat DDU0ANG2 official firmware on the notebook.
  2. Next task to be performed: extract the packages with WinRar. Once this is done, you can launch, on your notebook, this specific and important file: Odin v3.09.exe.
  3. You should now enter your phone in Download Mode via some instructions. Here they are: press and simultaneously hold Home, Power and Volume Down, then, when a boot message pops up, continue by pressing Volume Up. And this is how you’ll help your handset land in the mode we recommended it to be in.
  4. Your smartphone and notebook should enter a connection next. If you don’t know how, here’s the right method: use the phone’s USB cord.
  5. If you see that Odin comes up with a blue-colored sign a few minutes after you’ve used that cord, a plugging will have been created.
  6. You can now do this: make sure the firmware file is moved to AP / PDA. As soon as it is, you can go on and do as follows: tap two important boxes. They are named like this: Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time.
  7. If you are done with this part, look for Re-partition. This is an already checked box. Your job is to have it ticked off. Now move on by tapping this particular option: “Start“.
  8. The phone is going to go into an update phase very soon and the new DDU0ANG2 will be flashed. Give the process around 15 minutes to be over. You will know the exact moment when the procedure is done when a “Pass” message is displayed. After you are shown this, make sure you allow the phone to reboot. Then, when this is also over, go to the USB cable. Remove it so that the devices are correctly unplugged from one another.
  9. At the end of this you should tap, on the handset, this option first: Settings. The second option that you need to enable is this: About Phone. When each of them has been turned on, you will be free to have fun with your updated Samsung SM-G313H .

If you’ve created a NANDroid backup like we’ve told you to, here’s why you had to do it. Should you ever want the old ROM back, the NANDroid backup file will help you do that. The upgrade will be revoked when you’re done using that file.
