    Can’t install June Security update on my android one.
    It fails every time I update it through OTA, once it restarts it shows I have the update pending. Cleared cache and when it didn’t work, I Did a factory reset but to no avail. I’m using spice dream uno. Last successful update: May 1 2016

      I understand that you have updated your phone to 5.1 from service center. Check for unlocked bootloader, if unlocked, relock it and try the OTA update. Alternatively, you can flash the full firmware via ADB.

      When you see ‘No Command’ hold Power button, then press and release Volume up button to enter into recovery mode.

            Reboot into recovery and wipe cache. Still have problem, do a factory reset in recovery (backup data before proceeding). If problem still persist reinstall your stock ROM

        • Kannan

          Sep 27, 2016 at 7:46 am

          Status 7 error means you have modified your device, so you cannot apply the OTA update. However, you can flash the full ROM

      You may try by deleting the cache partition by going to stock recovery. Also, enable battery saver mode and app standby.

    There is no OTA file shown.
    I downloaded it already

    • Kannan

      You may use the fastboot method.Also, download correct firmware for your device.

      • Ankit

        Dec 17, 2015 at 6:31 pm

        How to do it..

        • Kannan

          Dec 18, 2015 at 12:43 pm

          For updating with official OTA, your device should be in stock (no custom recovery, root access and unlocked bootloader) and update to the latest version.
