You should download the custom version of the ROM from some trusted source and then flash it from your boot loader. Don't forget to take backup of your current configurations. And I recommend you to install some custom recovery as well (like teamwin recovery). NOTE: Before using this method, take backup of your device.

Your bootloader needs to be unlocked for you to install a custom OS. Keep in mind, unlocking bootloader will most-likely void your warrenty. And I think you also will stop receiving any future OS upgrades from your manufactures/carrier.

It depends on the manufacturer and the android version most likely. When there are new system updates, there are also often new bootloader versions available. Those are automatically updated to run on the newest software and provide support for the new android version. The installation of older software packages is often restricted by the newer bootloader. ...

I have an imperfect solution! If you can still get into your recovery module (TWRP in my case), then you can use a micro-sd card to flash a rom onto the device. In my case, I used CM 12 because I knew it would work, and I was freaking out, panicking that i had bricked it completely. My experience was with a Galaxy Note 4 on T-Mobile. Hope this helps. ...

Here is a list of steps I took to prevent Google Play Services and Google Play Store to update. It's inspired by the reply above but takes a different approach.

Put it on SD card and rename it to Phonesky.apk Then Play Services v. 6.7.76, copy ...

None of them other stores will be able to auto-update your apps unless you are rooted. Other apps cannot install new apps without root access. If you do have root access, 1Mobile(1mobile.com) store has this feature. Mobogenie is out there, too, but it has more ads.

Status 6 often refers to a problem within the updater script. Be sure to save it in unix format. I mostly use notepad++ to edit those files. notepad++ > edit > EOL conversion > UNIX format Also make sure there is an empty line on the end of the script. So if the script has 112 lines, the 113 should be empty. Status 7 means that the rom is incompatible ...

There is no official update from Android 4.2.2 to Android 4.4 for the Spice Mi 506. However, you can use a custom ROM. Instructions for this can be found on Update Spice MI 506 to Android 4.4 using custom ROM Use at your own risk, your Phone can be bricked afterwards and maybe you loose your warranty.

Try using Supersu 2.49 beta for Lollipop (LP) 5.0. Do a full unroot first. I have LP 5.0 Touchwiz on my Samsung tab with SElinux enforcing and functioning root. The Supersu version in your recovery can probably be replaced by unpacking your recovery with any number of methods and/or tool-sets, and replacing the archive. The better approach would be to ...

I believe you have an app installed that monitors other apps. For example, an app called earn talktime does the same. These apps launch other apps (on installing and updating) for monitoring whether that app was installed through their offer or not. Simply uninstall any app like that and the issue would be gone.

I downloaded this and flashed it using odin (windows running in virtualbox) and it worked. Using the Uzbekistan firmware should work too, from my own experience. But don't root it using CF-Auto-Root it will break your phone and you'll have to flash it again.
