I couldn't find "StarTrail" on ZTE's official site. Does this phone also go by a different name? Do you maybe have a model number? –  Chahk Nov 10 '12 at 15:59
    
Ok thanks. I visited ZTE's official site before post my question here. My carrier no longer sells this device. Therefore, here isn't support for this device. –  miguel Nov 10 '12 at 18:23
    
Have you seen: android.stackexchange.com/questions/13510/… If there's not an official update for your device, and if no one has made a custom ROM for it, you're out of luck. –  Al E. Nov 10 '12 at 18:42

You should check with the manufacturer of your device if they have an official upgrade available. If so, they will either provide the download (with installation instructions) themselves, or forward you to your carrier's support.

If there is no official upgrade, your only option is to find out if there are any 3rd-party ROMs available from Android community developers. Best places to look for such ROMs are xda-developers forums or RootzWiki, for example. Keep in mind that installing custom ROMs usually involves modifications to your phone that will void your warranty with the carrier and/or manufacturer.
