how to update flare S3 Octa to lollipop manually

 

 
This tutorial help you to update CM flare S3 Octa to Lollipop Version (android 5.1) manually via Stock Recovery. Many users encountered error updating their device via OTA. I suggest before  making an update you need to full unroot and remove all the apps that has root access like xposed, greenify and etc.
Some incidence, even full unroot they can’t update due to unknown reasons. This only 80% chances to update successfully. Here’s a new tutorial for easy to update it via stock recovery. But I’m not sure if could work to all of you.
 
Requirements:
update.zip
stock recoveryWarning: do it at your own risk!
Procedure:
1. Download  update.zip(extract the update.zip) then copy in sdcard.
2. Go to recovery mode. Just Reboot your phone Hold volume Up and Power simultaneously.
3. Install via zip. Locate your update.zip then flash. Wait to finish approx. 15-20mins.

Note: If bootloop proceed on How to fix bootloop via SPFT

  1. I'm experiencing the same thing as you guys. After a minute or so of using my phone there's suddenly a Thermal Warning Pop up then it automatically shutdown. I'm getting annoyed with this sh*t and I still don't know how to fix this. Hopefully, someone out there can help us…. please come out! We badly need you.

  4. Luckily I bought 2 CMFS3. To better help owners of their phone products that received notice to upgrade to Lollipops… Cherry Mobile should post in their website at least a safe PC based image restore back to the OEM OS Kitkat. With good USB driver and after a back-up all personal created files on CMFS3, I still have a phone.
