Micromax Canvas HD runs on android OS 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and in the specification post we stated that Canvas HD device android OS can be updated to 4.2.1 through the phone manually as we can do with Samsung and other phones ,we get an option to update the OS manually through the settings>>About Phone>>System Updates option . Like other mobile manufacturing companies , Micromax has started providing the updates and also they have provided a way through which users can get their phone’s android OS updated through their service centers . Well it’s a pretty old news for many but for some people it might be a new thing .
Though the phone isn’t updated to the latest OS 4.2.2 but atleast an update has come . Micromax Canvas 2 Plus has already got this update by default . I heard canvas 2 can also be updated to the JellyBean 4.1.2 .
How to get Android 4.2.1 Update on A116 Canvas HD ?
- Visit any MMX Checkpoint ( Micromax Mobile Service Center ) and ask them to update your phone OS
- That’s it!
Before you visit the service center make sure you’ve backed up your data present in the internal storage as the external SD card can be mounted out but you need to have a backup of the data present in the internal SD card . You can have a backup of the internal SD card with the help of some data backup apps like Titanium Backup.
Once you get Your OS updated , first of all you will see a new notification bar plus it is semi-transparent , few bugs have been fixed like of GPS ,.As stated above OTA (Over the air) function has also been introduced into the phones through which users can now update their phone while sitting at their home manually . No need to visit the support centers , as soon as the updates are available you can check from your phone . Isn’t that a good move ?
