Micromax testing Android 4.4 Kitkat on Micromax Canvas 4

Micromax is reported to be testing kitkat on Micromax devices. I was accessing my Facebook account and saw some posts regarding it on different Micromax groups. I also would like to aware you people that there are separate Facebook groups for each phone where you can get support from respective MMX users.

Android Kitkat testing on Canvas 4

We have been getting lots of queries related to this update as recently a leaked information shared by MMXNewscaster stated that Micromax will soon provide the kitkat update in Q2 2014, as April has just started so there are just 2 months left for Q2 to end. Micromax is continuously losing trust of the old users because of this update issue.

Every mobile company is continuously providing updates to its users but Micromax hasn’t even started this. I remember they provided just one update for canvas 2 up to 4.1.1 and the other one if Android 4.2.1 for canvas HD which they have stopped providing because of different issues.

Even Xolo has started providing the updates, karbonn launched three new devices like octane, octane plus, titanium hexa with Kitkat OS by default. So it high time for Micromax if they want to grab the first position in the mobile market they should release out this update.

Now coming back to the point, Micromax has uploaded official kitkat for canvas 4 on Moulnisky.com under this path : Index of . / downloads / Micromax / 00_A Serie / A210 / SW Versions / V17_050414(Beta Testing password protected) / and the file name is  A210_KK_S9111B_MP_F2F3F5F8_B1_IN_MMX_17_FLASHER_USER.rar.html

The file was uploaded on 7 April 2014.

Although it is password protected so we won’t be able to access it, plus it is under beta (testing) phase so it would take time. But finally we got some indication that Micromax will provide the update.

PS: It’s still not confirmed by the officials.

How many of you think this update will be available soon or you people have lost the hope of getting this update support from Micromax? Please share your views via a comment below.

    May i know your name and which mmx group do you belong to on fb??

  2. I think Micromax may not release Kitkat Update in near future. Instead they will launch new phones with Kitkat as google made strict rules to manufacturers to release future phones with Kitkat

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      Even MediaTek is continuously receiving tons of requests related to Kitkat upgrade and a recent report reveals that they are working on it and may roll out the update for their quad core and octa core powered phones by the end of April 2014.

  3. kartheek says:

    I lost my hope and trying to go for samsung

  4. Siddharth_K says:

    I’m now pretty sure that Kitkat is on the way for all top Canvas devices. I own a MMX Canvas Magnus A117. Waiting for MMX to release for my phone atleat by april end.

  5. Shubham says:

    I m still wating for update n will wait for next 3 months if not then i will forced to get a custom rom which i m still away frm it even though of rooted chd .

  6. Syed Zeeshan says:

    I am bit sure that MMX will release KitKat update. But only for media tek octa core and quad core processor phones. And according to the post I lost the hope on my Canvas 2, because this phone was running with dual core processor only.

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      Once kitkat update becomes available for MediaTek devices, the developers at XDA would surely make ways to port it to Canvas 2 also.

  7. gireesh says:

    Can we believe?

  8. Syed Zeeshan says:

    I am not so sure that the update will be released. But I think it will release only for mediatek quad core and octa core processor phones.
    And I am so sad, because my phone is Canvas 2 which runs on dual core which cannot be able to receive the update.

  9. Jitu yadav says:

    All are just rumours Nthng else.. Since November 2013 i m waiting for Kitkat update for my Canvas 4 bt everytym I m getting disappointed.. Nd there is no chance that mmx will give kitkat update this much easy.. Company will surely come with new handsets with kitkat nd aftr that we can think that may be mmx give this updates to there existing costumers.. Actually this is a big reason that y the mmx users like me don’t ever give someone advice to buy a mmx device.. Bcoz they don’t take care of there existing customers..

  10. satya jit rout says:

    that is just a rumours evan micromax just plan to launch new phone lycra centre the lost canvas night if they update from 4. on 4.3 2 kit kat then the upcoming phone not be sold the way micromax plan for.

  11. Mohit Upadhyay says:

    I think at least micromax should provide an update for canvas hd, since users face many issues in 4.2 update

  12. Sudhan says:

    Looking upon into the specs in MMX knight a350, i’m in eager to buy that for the past few months. But it doesn’t avail from the date of release. Checked with MMX estore too. Till there is no official update from the MMX manufacturers, i’m fed up and in oscillation to go for other brand.

  13. Drek says:

    i really don’t understand why mmx taking there step too slow .In June/July android new version is going to release with nexus 6 and then the excitement for kitkat will vanish. I really don’t mean to you admin i know your work is apprenticed and after the sudden heart attack of mmxnewscaster the hope of getting info of mmx is only you.
    Till the time we just wait…….thanks for the info.

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      MediaTek has made their kernel sources public and for ‘MediaTek’ devices kitkat would be coming by the end of May (most probably). don’t know When Micromax will provide the kitkat update.

  14. subin subair says:

    This is too much .i have been waiting for an update for atleast 3 months , what were u doing .mmx ? I just planned to buy 2 canvas turbos for ma parents . now i changed ma mind and ordered for moto x because its having a latest update of kitkat 4.4 . and other features . after may, i am planning to buy a motox 16 for maself too. i am completely tired of these rumours . its time to change ma mind .

  15. ramneek says:

    i dont think mmx will release update….firstly they made us fool by saying that 4.3 will be avaliable soon last year..then they said that 4.4 will be avaliable till the end of april….nw they are saying they will release soon…mmx u havealmost lost trust of users …mmx is only releasing rumours and not android 4.4…will nvr buy mmx ever again…

  16. Tapas Das says:

    Well, If Micromax fail to give update then soon the company will face major drop in sales. Its very simple , people will buy phones on which they can get free updates.
    I have 3 micromax, if i dont get any updates then automatically i will buy phones from other companies.
    The company should understand the sentiments of there buyers.

  17. Hamza Khan says:

    now micromax had released kitkat based smartphone canvas a106 so when will they provide the update to other devices

  18. Aby Joseph says:

    I have argues with a lot of Samsung owners that micromax will be providing a KitKat update for Canvas 4 soon .. but if they don’t do so in the near future .. most of us will probably loose goodwill with the firm. Its like they have abandoned their customers. Not fair!!!. Its us who trusted Micromax for no reason and now its their turn to prove that they are really into competition with the main stream mobile companies.

    • muthuraj s says:

      but xda developers says next month mmx will release official kitkat update 4.4.2 for canvas hd , magnus,canvas 4,canvas tubo 🙂 but i am waiting eagerly for kitkat update for canvas hd becozz.. i am using canvas hd

  19. karthik says:

    version 17 is not even there on the site. the last version there for canvas 4 is version 16 which is not kitkat

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      They removed it I guess.

      • ravi jain says:

  20. sasikumar says:

    When is the Canvas HD getting its kitkat update its been an long time if Knight update is available can it be used for HD also

  21. Surendra says:

    It looks like Micromax dropped the idea to upgrade the old phone. They are only concern about new phone.

  22. Almost year end now, does MMX need one more year for testing tthe upgrades???

  23. Avik ghosh says:
