    Hi Karan
    I have tried x9006….firmware upgrade but it’s getting failed as many times as I tried. I have 3g/4g connectivity issues as find 7a never connects. Do I need to install APN and mms settings manually or shall I ask carrier to send those settings.
    Can I install this kit Kat Firmware to fix my problem.
    Thanks in advance.

    • Try using Wi-Fi, if you don’t have Wi-Fi at your home then try to ask your carrier operator to send the settings. If they don’t then set them up manually. I hope this might fix the issue.
