Download: JiaYu finally release Android 4.4 update for JiaYu G4S


JiaYu G4S owners stop what you are doing and get to your computers! JiaYu have finally released an official Android 4.4 Kitkat update for your octacore phones!

Better late than never goes the old saying, this is exactly what owners of the JiaYu G4S will be thinking as they read this great news. JiaYu haven’t been the fastest to roll out Kitkat updates, but now that they have started lets hope they continue.

So far the good news is reserved for owners of the MT6592 octacore version of the JiaYu G4S. As far as we know this Android Kitkat update will not work on any other version of the G4.

So what does Android 4.4 bring to the G4S? According to the official change log there is full screen mode, wireless printing, screen recording, low power audio, and new bluetooth profiles.

To download Android 4.4 Kitkat for your JiaYu G4S simple head hit on the link below and click on “下载”. Apparently you will need to flash the ROM through your PC, but we cannot confirm this as we have not tried.

If anyone has any tips on updating to Android 4.4 Kitkat on the JiaYu G4S please get in touch.

    This is NOT the international version yet. There is a lot of chinese apps inside. It is better to wait for the international version of the update, which is coming pretty soon…

      there are custom roms availabe with kitkat for the g4b and g4a. as example this rom for g4b: http://www.needrom.com/download/jiayu-g4-basic-xperia-rom-base-4-4-2/
      this one meight also work for g4a since it’s actualy the same phone besides the memory, but if you want to be sure, search and install a custom kitkat rom for g4a. (they work actualy quite good, emoji support etc.)

    The only downsides I’ve found is that it still has the international dialling prefix/messaging bug, where it doesn’t understand that +44 is the same as 0 when you’re actually in the UK, so you get calls/messages from numbers the phone doesn’t understand, even though they are stored on it.

    That and the chinese calendar which you can’t remove or suppress…

      Hi, do you have any English instructions for upgrading? I’m worried I might ruin my phone, is it an easy process to follow?
