Usually, when an Android update comes out, we get a notification with the option to update our device to a newer version, but it doesn’t always turn out that way. The update may be done automatically on your devices or you may need to keep an eye on the updates looking for that information on your mobile device to see if it is available.
The problem with new updates is the time it takes to reach users depending on the system and model they have. For example, if you have a device that operates under the Android Jelly Bean version, it is very likely that you will not find an update available since that type of system stopped updating its devices long ago.
Update Android to the latest version on your mobile device
The importance of keeping our device updated is due to the fact that each update makes improvements in the system , both in performance and security, as well as the addition of new tools. It must be emphasized that the update of the Android operating system depends a lot on the equipment, taking into account the make and model of each equipment. Currently the Linux-based Android system is one of the safest and most reliable on the market, free of malwares, even better than iOS.
A recent update many times can take advantage of our devices and work optimally, but on other occasions that version may not favor the operation of the equipment.
If you have the necessary requirements and want to have the latest version of Android on your tablet or mobile. Here we explain the easiest way for you to update your devices.
It is an operating system based on the Linux Kernel, designed mainly for mobile devices with a touch screen, be they smartphones or tablets and this being the best-selling operating system.
Something we recommend before you try to take your device to a newer version, is to create a copy or backup of your documents to avoid future problems with your information. Also make sure you have a stable internet network to efficiently carry out the process.
There are mainly 3 ways to get the latest version of Android on our computers : 1) the official way, which is much more comfortable, faster and wirelessly (OTA) download the firmware from the device without using a computer, 2) locate a version that is not available in your region by downloading the firmware associated with the model of the equipment and 3) root the mobile device and install the so-called ROM, for unofficial versions.
Update Android to the latest version officially
The simplest way to check on your device if there is any update available for the latest version of the Android operating system is through the following route.
Go to your mobile device to the Settings> Device information> System update section.
Once there, the screen will show the version that your device has, if it is updated and the last time it was made. If a newer version has been officially released, you can start the download after accepting the terms and conditions. If the update does not exist, we will proceed to do it manually.
Update Android to the latest version by installing the Firmware from another region
Many times there are Android versions that are not available in our region and we cannot officially access them . This type of restriction is often the product of an update filter where there may be errors that must be improved and therefore only some regions have the version to which the developers were able to notice the problem, and in this way it does not continue to be distributed.
There are pages on the internet, often official sites, where you can directly download the latest versions or firmwares, according to the model of each device, to force the update.
If there is no recent update or one available in your geographical area then you will have to do it manually by rooting the mobile.
Update Android latest version manually with rooted device
First of all we will have to download and install the application “ROM installer” on our devices, which you can get through the official Google Play store. Once installed, within the application, you will see a couple of options among which we will select “Backup” to perform a backup of all your documents. Later we will choose the option of “Flash recovery”, an emergency menu that will serve to make adjustments in the system, and we download the most convenient for our devices, when doing this it will be installed automatically.
Finally the device will be ready for ROM installation, for this you must press the option of “ROM installer” and select the option that suits us best. Remember that ROMs are not developed by the manufacturer of your device and are modified by other people, in this case “C-ROM” works perfectly. After the installation, your computer will restart automatically and you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of the new version.
