Cyanogen is rolling out official incremental Lollipop update for Yureka, Yureka Plus (YOG4PAS8A4) and Yuphoria (YOG4PAS8A8) . Though these phones are already having 5.1.1 lollipop version, this incremental update provides latest critical security patches, stability and performance improvement and a fix for random screen going black and wallpaper changing to default. Here’s how to manually update Yureka, Yureka Plus and Yuphoria to the incremental YOG4PAS8A4 firmware.manually update yureka, yuphoria

This tutorial is for those who didn’t receive the OTA notification for the update and for those who tampered the software by unlocking the bootloader and rooted their device. As you know, official OTA updates can’t be installed in a rooted phone as long as you’re having an external (custom) recovery and 3rd party kernel, in fact.

You can’t install this official YOG4PAS8A4 firmware update if:

      • You’re on a custom recovery
      • Having a custom kernel
      • Device is rooted
      • Having old YOG4PAS6ZA firmware version. You have to be on YOG4PAS3JM firmware version to grab this update.

If you stuck at the old YOG4PAS6ZA firmware version, you have to manually update to the previous firmware version (YOG4PAS3JM) . For that, follow these instruction.

  • Download official S3JM firmware [Link] and flash it via fastboot. (Your data will be wiped. Be sure to backup)
  • You’ll get OTA notification for the newer version. Download and install.
  • If you don’t get the update prompt, download the latest firmware [Link] and copy it to your internal memory.
  • Now reboot your phone into recovery (Switch off your phone. Press volume UP and DOWN and power buttons together until you get into stock cyanogen recovery
  • From there, Select “apply update” and Select “Choose from internal storage”/”Choose from external sdcard” and navigate to the copied ZIP file and flash. Reboot after completion.
