Important instructions

  1. Coming along the way to guide you properly is the first step of this tutorial. Its role is to tell you to download Jelly Bean 4.2.1 custom ROM to the laptop and then to tell you that you should also plug the handset to this laptop; the USB cord that comes together with the phone is the tool for that purpose.
  2. After the products are connected accordingly, what is expected of you comes in the form of step two: move the Android 4.2.1 ROM file to the phone’s SD card (as always, the file must be placed into the root of the memory card instead of in another location altogether). Switch the U8860 off, turn it on back again while simultaneously select and keep pressed the buttons for Power and Volume Up; the idea is to get the smartphone into Recovery mode and that’s the way to achieve it.
  3. Once that happens, the third step will ask the following: follow the prompts you will soon spot on the phone’s display and opt for Bootloader.
  4. Go to Recovery and then Wipe data (you still need to be in the Download mode for this). Locate Flash zip from SD card.
  5. For step five you should click on Power; this is going to select the option we just mentioned. Now go to Power again and tap on it, then opt for Choose zip from SD card and afterwards go to the Android 4.2.1 ROM file via the Volume buttons.
  6. Press on Power opt for the respective file; a confirmation is needed here and you should grant it. The update will get installed and, after its completion, you will be required to go to the option called +++go back+++.
  7. Step seven will prompt you to choose the system restarting; the Honor U8860 will reboot and you’ll get the chance to experience the Jelly Bean 4.2.1 you’ve long dreamed of.
