    Guys,

    I got the update on my XOLO Q800 x edition. Probably a new year gift from XOLO :D

    The performance is better now as the phone appears to be faster now although the interface and a few other options seems too cheesy/colorful.

    Also there seems to be some problem in loading the contact images (during incoming/outgoing calls and messaging).
    --> You have to take a back up of your contacts and remove the existing ones from your phone memory n then copy them again and then save the images for the contacts and then reboot the mobile. Only then the images does load for the contact.. (at least that's how it worked for me ).

    Ref: XOLO Q800 getting Android 4.2 OTA update (The comments sections shows some responses from diff users)

    The setting window, messaging, keypad interface is all white/green now. Personally i feel the older interface was better.

    The camera has got some changes as well.

    The notifications bar has got a boost as well.

    Overall a pretty good upgrade but with quite a few downsides :|

    P.S. none of my data was disturbed during/after the upgrade.

    Regrads,
    Venu

    I've updated my XOLO with the help of twrp, and also rooted. I've one question guys. My GF who lives in other city also using XOLO Q800 WM chipset, she told me that she is getting notification of update available, guys... is there any way to update in stock ROM easily? I told her not to update else it may brick. Her phone is not rooted.

    It's nothing to do with root
    It's an OTA update and will work with stock recovery
    And get ctr. It's better than TWRP at least for MTK devices

    @kool OTA is the official way of updating/fixing the OS. Tell her to update ASAP.

    hi admin, i lost my notes after updating to 4.2.1. There wasn't any notification coming to backup the data before update, plus I hvnt ever heard of data loss in up gradation. Can you please tell me a way to get them back. I had really important stuff in notes.
