First of all, You should check 2 things,
a)      Make sure you have installed a device driver software in your computer. If not please click here
b)      Make sure the version of your current rom is official. Go to settings → About phone→Build number to check.

Now let’s begin
1.    Download the corresponding update file for your phone.
2.    The update file needs to be in ZIP format. If the update file is in RAR format, you need to unzip the file first. Connecte your phone with PC.
       Choose Media device(MTP). Pictures show as below.

3.     You may change the file name as long as it ends up with  .zip.
4.     Copy the update file you downloaded to either internal or external storage of yourphone. Root directory is recommended. Plz remember the file location.
5.     Download CWM-based recovery tool to your computer. Download link: http://pan.baidu.com/s/1dDxpsrv  
6.     Open CWM-based recovery tool, Click UpdateReconery and than press any key to enter recovery mode.

8.    You need to format the data first, and before that you need to make a copy of your phone data. There are some softwares that you can use for the purpose.

       steps:  1) wipe data /factory reset
                  2) wipe cache parttion.  Each step may take 2-3 minutes. If you update the system without formating all data, there might be some error.
      
9.     Choose wipe date/factory reset

there's a lot of problem with this phone.

not happy

some of the worst things are:

the battery doesn't last a day

while I'm working on the phone, the phone goes to lock screen where I have to put the pin number.

there is no enter button on the keyboard when I'm typing a message on SMS, however the enter button is on the keyboard when typing message on Whatsup.

when it's locked the screen goes black with only the clock showing, I cant enter any number, the only solution for it is restart.

the emails some of them they're downloaded fully, other emails they just open with blank content, the emails I delete they get downloaded again and again.

I cant get a driver for this phone.

with all these problem there is no update to fix all these bugs.
why did you release this phone with so many bugs
