I have version 1.0.1 and I want to upgrade. The reason I haven't done it yet is because I recently bought the phone second hand. But I am unable to update it and what happens is the circular icon indicating that something is happening shows up, then disappears and there is no message about updating. If I cannot upgrade it, is there some other way to upgrade the browser because I cannot use it properly at the moment. Thanks

Something is lost in translation. Unzip package. Copy zip file (inside the folder you just unzipped) to the root of SD card, renaming it "update.zip". Then apply by booting phone into recovery mode by holding the volume rocker switch upwards whilst powering on.

Why does it matter what country I live in? Will you not help me out if I live in the wrong one... Right now I live in Sweden (I am not Swedish). The guy I got the phone from bought it in the UK though, if that matters. I have the ZTE open.

The updates are pushed on by the manufacturer based on location regions of the device. Is you ZTE Open a Orange color device or is it something else?

Thanks for your cooperation!

Hi there!

Sorry for the delay. There is a SD card update available that you can do by yourself by following instructions here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/Developer_phone_guide/ZTE_OPEN

Hi

Thanks for the help. Do you think I could ask what this means "Take out SIM card and check whether update.zip of SD card is in accordance with to be upgraded mobile phone; copying update package to update.zip file before upgrade."??? Or should I start a new thread for that. It is kind of vague instructions but maybe I missing something, for example an SD card that was made for the phone and I am only use one that I found in my drawer that had some music on it...

Thanks again
