Display can be turned ON by pressing power key, but OSUpdate Progress bar cannot be seen. To workaround this issue, before upgrading make sure you unselect “Turn off device if not used for x minute” option in Power Settings applet.
  • During upgrade or down grade, if upgrade doesn’t succeed then a low storage memory will pop up the device screen. To workaround this issue, cold boot the device. Program and Storage memory will reset back to original state.
  • If device shows low memory while copying OSUpdate folder to \Temp, delete all the contents of the application folder and cold boot the device.
