Smile [Q] Updating from 4.1.2 to B907 on Ascend Mate

Hi friends. Since I can't post to the Mate development thread, I need to do it here. My question is simple.

I have an Ascend Mate, locked to my carrier (Claro Guatemala), and I want to update my phone to the newest software via the update from SD card. Is there any issue or thing I need to know about this? I come from a Xperia Ray, and it was a bit different since you can flash a complete ROM there. Will I wipe all my data? And will the branding (uselss apps, icons from a lot of apps are different and dont change with the theme) dissapear?

Just do a local update and backup your data if you think that's necessary. Shouldn't be a problem at all I don't know about the branding, but if you're talking about carrier-bloatware, I don't think it will disappear, because a regular update keeps your app. If you're rooted, install RootAppDelete and delete those apps if you want. Hope I helped!
