Should you have problems with the flash process, so I can you the Declaration @ G-gffd put your heart. Here the driver installation and another driver is available.

1. all Mediatek (and others who are using cell phones & Android combined) delete USBDeview
2. open the Device Manager next to it

Next, now the appropriate driver for the preloader should be installed. @ Android Figurines de: for me it did not work with the driver in your .rar file, there was no preloader driver gefunde. When the driver specified by me it worked without problems for me. Whether missing the correct driver for you, I can not say clearly is only in "your driver" and my K1 preloader a different hardware ID is available, and therefore the Windows driver manager the driver is not accepted.

      KK all in all is faster and uses less ram so im happy with this. I just used the ROM for ~1 day but still also battery life seems to have improved! Will tell you more about it after more testing.

      The ugly icons some users complained about are only in stock launcher, replayce feg with google now launcher and they are all back to normal :-)



      But here are some issues Im having:

      - Cant install (clockworkmod) superuser, only SuperSU working… tried all different ways of installing

      - Cant install viper 4 android sound driver: Says busybox doesnt work or is not installed. I tried both busybox installers available on Playstore already, they installed different versions, but none worked for viper!

      - If you change camera to 16:9 you just get 4MP quality… also with different camera apks!

      any hints?

    Thanks to all that shared their user experience,..i have also installed kit kat 4.4.2 on my k1,..and my observation is that it has imoroved the performance of my k1 considerably,..the battery has improved,…it runs far more fluently than before,..i dont have any problems with my imei number,..my wifi is perfect if not better,..my blutoot is perfect if not better….i have not yet tested my gps,..will do that later,..dont use it much anyway,…my call quality is very ok,..i think my call quality improved a bit,..the speaker is same,…i dont agree that the icons are ugly,..to me they are more simple,light and more sleek,..makes the phone run faster,…i have rooted my updated k1 with VROOT,..very easy to root,..i also noticed a slight improvement in the camera performance,..tested it a little,..will test more later….however it still heats up when you play games,..and during charging….strangely though my antutut score is lower than when my k1 was still jelly bean,..i scored over 28,000 with jelly bean,..but i scored 26,152 with kit kat,..still my phone apears faster with kit kat,…….its much easier to udate the k1 using windows 7 than windows 8 or 8.1,..so i suggest you udate with win 7…..it is a surprise to me that many people have problems and issues with their k1,..i have not experienced any problem with my k1 since i bought it over 2 months ago,……i love my k1 before,..now i love my k1 much more,..seems as if i just got it new,…….thanks to all once again.

    My advice to all…."UPDATE TO KIT KAT"

  5. 11/26/2013


    Hi guys, i have updated my K1 turbo to KK and like the most people said, its more faster and with less lag. For those who have force closes, disable the automatic time zone (definitions>date&time).

    I have tried everything and all the functions are perfect call and no problem IMEI. Posts gps wifi internet. camera wiped off the problem of focus, eliminated the problem of map rotation.

    A great job !!!!!

    I have first read the experiences of others and then dispensed with thanks to this update.
    A small excerpt from the error list:

    Camera with 16: 9 recording the highest resolution that can be selected is 4 megapixels.
    Bluetooth does not work properly. Smartwatches not work with it.
    The following sensors will not work either: Gyroscope, Gravity, linear acceleration, rotation.
    The LED lamp flashes when the device is connected via USB.
    Some users have their device broken when flashing … not always their own fault.
    Telephone process crashes remedy if "automatic time zone" is disabled.
    Otherwise, the 4.4 cannot write to the memory, that's why some apps no longer work. Likewise, for example, gps.conf cannot overwritten. The latter cannot blame be the creators of King Zone, but the rest much more.
    My recommendation: If your system with Jelly Bean (4.2.2) is running, do not change, then it will be worse than before.
    At the same time, I agree with the statement: "never change a running system"
