    Hi Everybody,

    Thank you guys for all the work you did in order to get this phone to be a better toy!

    Since I (newbie) spent almost half  day to collect information about how to upgrade a stock phone to the given latest firmware I collected the steps of it. Maybe I can save some time to somebody else.

    The flashing description differs a little bit from the ones I read on this forum but somehow only this worked for me.

    Enjoy

    some remarks:

    Note that , the ROM i build up and published has already (and if flashed with SPFlashtool), TRWP/recovery 2.8.7.0 included with SuperSU, you don't need to do the steps : 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7, you can reboot in recovery ( power and Vol+, usb cable connected), you will get the TRWP menuy, and select the OTA ZIP on SD and that's it !

    - if you have already, the official(or mine)  firmware version 20151021 insalled(antutu 38000) and not able to do OTA for whatever the reason, and in order to use the latest OTA, you might then follow steps from :

    - 2 to 7, expected to be tested by pacsy

    Hello,

    I've K2 with installed TWRP and Super Su. All works great. After few days it was a message – The gallery app not respond, do you want close it? (the message was similar). When I started a Gallery app (a part of the android) it's work great. My camera and flashlight stop work too. There are a message " I can't connect to the camera. Close other apps that used camera or flashlight". I

    've thinked that this is a hardware problem. Today I've switched off the phoe for about 2 hors. When turned on , all worked for a short and after this – stopped again. I try a few times to switch off for about 30 min, but without succes. Can you help me? Now I think that the problem is software. I've installed a two app for hardware check – one of them crashed every time that I've started camera checking.

    I've installed another app Camera from Play Store, but it's not working too. Not working and Barcode scanned for example – all apps that use the camera.

    I restored a TWRP's backup that I made a week ago – when all worked great, but the result is same (camera and gallery not works). I've thinked to reinstall the ROM, but I think the result will be same (not working camera). Could you help me?

     

    Thank you!

      Hi dedovoto

      My only suggestion is to re-install everything by doing a full flashing  :

      Follow the instructions belongs to the link below and update

      http://www.needrom.com/download/rom-k2-firmware-update-2015-10-21/

      Then

      Follow the instructions belongs to the link below and update

      http://www.needrom.com/download/k2_ota_zip_upd/

      If it is still not working, then it should be a HW problem, linked to internal temperature or sporadic pb.

      Mine, is working perfect and very fast !

      I have one issue, the backcover glass it is broken !  So i have to use the silicon case provided by Kingzone in th esame package, this is a very bad quality glass, and it is not solid as specified.

       

      Good luck
