Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-I9070 Android 4.4.2

Few weeks ago i have upgraded my wife’s Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-I9070 from Android 2.3.6 to 4.1.2 using branded (P4) rom. My wife hates me for that because her phone slows dooooown….

I decided to install her new Android 4.4.2 Kitkat ROM (the same which i have on my Nexus 5). Below are step how i do this (of course it could’nt be done without googling the net)

  1. Create backup of all stuff which where on my wife’s phone.
  2. Root the phone by downloading this file root.zip and put it on SD card (root folder / is the best).
  3. Reboot the phone to recovery by powering it off and then VolumeUp + Home + Power
  4. Select Install update from external storage and select root.zip.
  5. After reboot you will have rooted device. Next step is to load ClockWorkMod Recovery (temporary). Download it from here → update.zip.
  6. After that download Carbon_Janice_KK-4.4.2_Build8_22.03.14.zip which contains latest Android 4.4.2 and Google Apps 20140105
  7. All files (update.zip, Carbon_Janice_KK-4.4.2_Build8_22.03.14.zip and GApps) put on SD card.
  8. Reboot to recovery and select install update from external storage →select update.zip.
  9. You phone would automatically reboot to ClockWorkMod Recovery.
  10. Perform wipe data/factory reset and wipe cache partition.
  11. Go to Advanced and select wipe dalvik cache.
  12. Go back to main menu and select install zip from SD card, next select choose zip from SD card and choose Android 4.4.2 rom file.
  13. Do the same with GApps.
  14. Reboot your phone →it will load about 5-10minutes.
  15. Enjoy your Samsung Galaxy S Advance GT-I9070 Phone running Android 4.4.2 Kitkat 🙂
