Upgrade Android 2.3 to 4.0 using Android OS Configure (OS Updater)


Android operating system has revolutionized the mobile technology as more and more gadgets are being produced on this platform everyday because of its flexibility and mostly because it is an open source software. More developers are coming up with new ideas to make Android even better but those who are still using the old versions of the operating system may not be able to use some of the new apps so there is a need to upgrade Android from a lower version to a newer version. Newer versions of any software means new features and less bugs.

Android operating system is already on its version 4.0.5 now and a lot of folks are still using versions 2.3. Even application developers are also trying to make changes in their application to make them compatible/supported in the newer versions of Android. Upgrading your Android to newer versions will improve your device in a lot of ways like easy multitasking, better notification, customizable home screens, re-sizable widgets and deep interactivity and most importantly its compatibility with newer apps in the Google Play Store.

  16. Where do i get the password to unlock and install the Andriod 4.x.x download file for my Pantech Burst phone?

  17. Does the computur have to be connected to the network? Please explain the connection very well.thanks

    • No it doesn’t

    • Hi, thanks for being availabel to post the pasword, when might this be available±? DO i need to download the files again or can i get the password elseware so all i have to do is enter it in when extracing the files.

      i also went though the offer process and didn’t receive anything. is it possible for you to just send me the password so i won’t have to look for it.
      Have a 14 day period to either use/like the phone o return it and i want to see if the 4.0.5 upgrade makes the phone desirable and usable. if not will return it and have a ver limited timeframe in order to do it.

      Thanks in advance for your assistance with this.

  18. I have the key file link in the folder.. after completing the offer he message was the key or file you are trying to download has been removed or not found.

  19. The key you provided for file download was invalid. This is usually caused because the file is no longer stored on MediaFire. This occurs when the file is removed by the originating user or MediaFire. <– this message is getting again an again. please do help me out with this. sir. thanks.

  20. I could not understand the language given in the survey ……also when I click on the survey link….an add appears

    Hi nawosu, i want to upgrade my galaxy pocket android version 2.3.6 to higher version, will it hang or harmfull to the device.

  23. Wow! Nwosu you made a very useful information here, I never knew Android 2.3 Os can be upgraded to 4.0 or higher version.

    I just bought Samsung Galaxy Y Duos but while trying to setup the device I noticed the Android 2.3 powering the phone does not really give a smooth experience so I decided to search for how to upgrade its Os to a higher version.

    But what I see as a challenge in upgrading the phone OS is it’s memory size. It has only 160MB internal memory, 290RAM and 512ROM, so I don’t know if the version 4.0 will work smoothly on the device with this kind of memory size.


    • The memory capacity of your device will be a limitation to its performance as it will require even greater resources to function smoothly when upgraded.
