    Don’t apply this update as post this update my phone was formatted: contacts, messages all gone. Wifi not turning on. And graphics for some games ( e.g.HayDay ) are blurred.

    Hope Xolo to fix it soon 🙁

      Hi Puneet,

      Thank you for your feedback. Many users on Facebook have also reported unusual problems with this update. I’ve updated this article to caution the users about the same.

    Xolo released some patches to fix the WiFi issues…I heard… So is it now safe to upgrade to kitkat version or should I wait? It is available as over the air download… Should I upgrade my phn now?

    • Yes, Xolo has released a subsequent update to address these issues. Till now, no one has reported any issues in the newer update. Therefore, I assume that most of the issues should have been rectified as the device was very unstable with the earlier Kitkat update.

      • simar singh

        So should I upgrade my phone to kitkat version? What do u suggest? Is WiFi working with the new updated version?

        • Go ahead, give it a try via OTA. If you don’t like it, you can always revert back by going into the service center. 🙂
