hi, not sure if I can post my question here ( don't want to pollute the current topic) but I am also not sure if it's worth a new topic.
I own a Samsung Galaxy S4 mini type GT-I9195 with Android 4.4.2
I've recently bought a Samsung Galaxy Watch that I can only pair with my phone when the Android version is 5 or higher. My phone is still to good to buy a new one so I am looking for a way to get to Android 5 or higher.
Anyone that can advise/help me ?
thanks
Filip

or flash Arco's latest Android 9, it is more up to date & has security patches (possibly the odd minor bug) (refer to multiple sources to be sure you understand what you are doing before flashing, flash twrp with Odin then Lineage zip using TWRP is probably easiest method, no need to root first that way)

The more I read about it the more I get confused and the less I understand what steps I need to follow...
Anybody from Belgium/Netherlands on this forum that could potentially help via phone ?
Thanks !

Use Google:

Or
How to install Samsung Firmware on S4mini
You will find a lot of YouTube's

Ok then thank you, I guess I will flash with Odin the new twrp and then the rom.

think you can flash twrp (edit: zip files I mean) with cwm ... but double check yourself as it's been a few years since I did it.

(also flash gapps at same time as rom (before reboot) if you will use gapps)
