I have Micromax E311 phone.
For some reason the settings of phone have become unreachable. So on the display I see com.android.settings. Setting icon with a mechanical gear on it but when I tap it then I get a pop up
Unfortunately, Settings has stopped.
I clicked Ok.
Then again the same message pops up within a fraction of second this keeps happening then I restart the phone somehow and if I touch settings then same thing happens. If I don't touch the setting's icon, there is no problem I can keep using the phone.
So I am not sure what is the OS in this phone. My guess is that it has been formatted to the factory settings, so it's having Android 4.4.2. I read many tutorials about rooting the phone and installing custom ROM on it. Like
After rooting an Android phone, you can switch the operating system ROM whenever you want. The rooting process removes the preinstalled operating system on the Android phone, replacing it with a rooted Android OS.

What I am confused with is to upgrade my device OS to android 10, first I should replace the ROM and then do "something" as mentioned on lot of forums or what exactly I should to to upgrade the OS of my phone. I am very confused with all the tutorials available on internet. I want to know simple steps in bullet points like
- Step 1 change ROM
- Step 2 change this
- Step 3 change that
- Step 4 boot phone.
Meaning such a guideline will help me when I read tutorials, and I was getting confused with them.I am not sure if with android 4 OS I can directly upgrade to some thing like android 9 or so.
