OK! The Long Wait Is Over! New Links Have Arrived!




Gionee E3 KITKAT 4.4.2 2014

GIONEE released kitkat update a few days ago.

So Here i am with the link to the kitkat ROM for Indian Users!!

For Flashing, You Must Download https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B89X...p=docslist_api And https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B89X...p=docslist_api

You musn't connect your phone to computer until told... just switch off and keep it!

Then Install Driver and Extract The Sp Flash Tool To Desktop!



Now Download The firmware file- http://gionee.co.in/rom/e3kitkat/E3_0102_T8072.rar

Extract It To Desktop!

Now Run FlashTool.exe As Admin From SP Flash Tool Folder!

Click On Scatter Loading on right side middle!

Browse The MT6589_Android_scatter_emmc.txt file available on the extracted ROM folder!

Some of the users encountered this problem... the GIONEE box was'nt ticked by default! so just tick it and click on the GIONEE text next to the box and browse the extracted folder and select gionee.img file!

Now Click On FirmWare>Upgrade On The Top..

Wait A Bit! When You see the text "searching" below the percentage bar, connect your phone.

It will start installing automatically. Just wait until 100% . after that , you will see a green circle on success!

Done! [/SIZE]

Now disconnect phone and Boot!!

Please Don't Forget To Hit The Thanks Button!

I am new to sp flash tool. Can u help me how to use it? For eg., it asks for scatter file. And do I have to install drivers for my phone before I do this?
I already downloaded the recovery and the superSu package by chain fire. Only now sitting and staring at the PC wondering what to do
I'd be grateful for any help!
