First charge the phone battery to 100% ! (seriously u can't replace the battery or charge in another way)

BEFORE UPGRADE S60-a 4.4.4 or S60-w:
Do the root with kingroot. After root do the backup all partitions with Partitions Backup &Restore and keep it in safe place:

Flashing S60-W with this rom:

Updated from version:


This ROM will wipe all userdata!Except external SD Card.
If phone after flash won't boot up and only long vibrating long hold: VOL- and POWER BUTTON (30-120seconds). Phone should restart.It happens when you will flash from other versions loader (for example 5.0.2 ->4.4.4 or 4.4.4 ->5.0.2). Why? Because old loaders is running and you have flashed the new one so you have to restart the phone but u can't remove the battery and u have to long press PWR Button.

Warning 1:
If something went wrong and phone is long vibrating and windows see Qualcom MMC (a lot of drives) u can repair it by flashing emmc with MiFlash and then HOLd VOL- and power Button and plugin USB Cable.
