To upgrade to 4.2.2, you need a USB type A to USB type A cable to connect to a PC.


Backup all data before you do the Restore, all data will be lost.

***After the computer indicates the restore process is done, system will reboot itself immediately and therefore
you SHOULD NOT unplug the power for at least another 5 minutes to allow the rest of the recovery process to complete.
We recommend you to do the flashing with the HDMI connected to a display so that the whole process can be seen on screen.
Incomplete flashing will lead to firmware corruption and system abnormalities.***

(The whole upgrade process will take around 8 minutes, 3 minutes flashing restore through a PC,
and 5 minutes to recover after restoring, please DO NOT unplug the power during the process until you enter the Android OS
for the 1st time or system might be corrupted.)
