How to Install Android 4.2.2 XXUANF1 on Galaxy Grand Neo GT-I9060

If you’re in the mood for updating Galaxy Grand Neo GT-I9060, you can use our post as a method. The actual firmware which can get your device upgraded is mentioned below. Go ahead and make the most out of this guide!

There are so many things you can do if you have an updated gadget. Your phone will enjoy all of them as soon as this is installed on it: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean XXUANF1. It’s an official firmware and it was launched this month. It comes for free and it’s available for Portugal.

Because it has a deactivated KIES logo, you won’t get the update with Samsung’s KIES. But you can get it with OTA; make sure your handset’s equipped with stock ROM to apply this method. If you don’t have a device with this sort of tool, our tutorial can be used as an alternative.

The benefits of this official firmware

Before you install the official update firmware, you must make sure that you’re using the right phone model. If you aren’t, best perform the procedure with a guide that’s appropriate for your device.

Here is a look at what to expect from having the Android 4.2.2 XXUANF1 on your handset. An update provides this phone with a new set of download notifications. You will enjoy low battery bug fixes and a USB debug white-list, too. Joining the novelties is a new Gallery app.Galaxy-Grand-Lite-GT-I9060

After that you’ll get the option to long-press the WiFi Bluetooth icons in Quick Settings to be able to toggle the on/off state while using the device. You will also be offered a new set of sounds for wireless charging. You can then try out new features. A much better Bluetooth audio streaming experience is also possible.

When there’s root access on your phone and you want to get the update, some of the device’s elements will be damaged. Root access, for one, will be left out. Apart from that, the Galaxy Grand Neo GT-I9060 will lose this: its system partition. You won’t go through the loss of important data. Also spared from damage are the phone’s internal / external SD cards.


If you’re done with the info above, do as these instructions tell you to:

  • turn on USB Debugging on the handset;
  • don’t forget to turn off the security programs featured on your Samsung I9060;
  • charge the battery of your handset till it’s full;
  • download USB drivers from this page on your notebook (make sure they are compatible with your handset);
  • Windows has to be the only OS running on the notebook;
  • the security software in use on your notebook needs to be deactivated;
