Upgrade to Android 4.4.2 Kitkat On Micromax Canvas Doodle 3

So finally Micromax has started providing kitkat updates to its devices. Previously we shared the guide to upgrade canvas knight running on Jelly bean to kitkat and today Micromax officially released the Kitkat update for Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 A102. The update is available via OTA and with your phone you can directly install the new Kitkat OS.

Kitkat Update for Canvas Doodle 3 A102

Recently, Micromax launched doodle 3 with Kitkat OS out of the box and today for doodle 3 users a Kitkat update has arrived. The first Doodle 3 stock came with 512MB RAM however an upgraded version came after few months as Doodle 3 was expected to be the upgraded version of Doodle 2. The upgraded version features 1 GB of RAM with Kitkat out of the box that sounds good.

Officials disclosed the release of the update via the social media as they did in the case of Canvas Knight. Below is what they shared on their official Facebook Page:

CAN Doodle on Android Kitkat! All Canvas Doodle 3 users on Android Jellybean can now upgrade to Kitkat OS through FOTA! Simply reboot your phone, receive a notification and follow the steps!
Wi-fi connectivity recommended.

The update is available via OTA and in case you face any issue in upgrade process we would be posting a manual guide to upgrade your phone.

I believe the update will be available by Service centers too, ensure to check with the service center via a call before visiting them.

How to Update Canvas Doodle 3 to Android Kitkat via OTA?

  1. Reboot your device once.
  2. Head over towards settings option.
  3. Settings–>About Phone–>Software/System Updates.
  4. System Message – A new firmware update is available and ready to download. Do you want to continue?
  5. Tap on Yes.

Ensure you have a good working WiFi connection or a 3G connection so as to download the update without any issue.

  19. Shree Punia says:

    I can see software update process comes automatically on my doodle 3 but when I click on that nothing happens. Please advise how to update. And it automatically put a “x” (cross in red) in between the screen and kind of disable everything. When you click on that x (red crosses symbol) then only you can click on any app and use it.

    Please advise what to do.

          Visit the service center and tell them that while upgrading via OTA the update failed and the phone isn’t switching ON now. They will restore your phone to either Kitkat or JB.

  24. Senthil says:

    I have recently purchased Micromax Canvas Nitro A310. Since the unboxing, I am facing wifi issue. For the first time after first switch on I was able to connect to wifi, but to my surprise after sometime i can’t access internet though wifi is connected. I have no problem with wifi network as my another Samsung phone and laptop has no connection or access problem. Then i tried to connect the wifi after doing “forget password”, but after I retype the password it shows “connecting”, and sometimes “obtaining IP addresses”, but never actually getting connected. For all I have to do for connection is to reboot the phone, and it automatically connects to wifi without even any need of typing the password.

    Please help resolve this issue

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      Is the problem persisting again? Normally It takes around 10-15 seconds to connect to the Wifi and yes it first asks for a password and shows Obtaining IP address first and then connected.
