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.

How to install custom rom https://www.xda-developers.com/how-to-install-custom-rom-android/ For my device flash rom https://www.gogorapid.com/flash-stock-rom-on-micromax-e311/

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.

    You are confused because you are reading generic tutorials and background articles. On Android however every device is special, hence unless you have a tutorial that is specific for your device the tutorial is useless. – Robert May 30 at 20:32
  • The first step is to find a custom ROM based on Android 10 that is made specifically for Micromax E311, which doesn't look like there is. The latest Android version that I could find is Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which doesn't look stable either. Browse XDA Forum for this specific model for more information. – Andrew T. May 30 at 22:36
  • actually the model I fear is not Nitro. I have lost access to settings some how before that I had rooted the phone, so if I can know exactly which model number or OS this phone is running some how by connecting with USB cable with a laptop, I will explore more but I do not know how. Thanks for your XDA forum link I will post in it I was not able to search that forum device specific. Well as I am a novice user and do not have much post count so I can not post in that link you gave. That is developer forum so they locked it for spamming by non technical posts. – political science May 30 at 23:00
  • ok I have posted the question here on XDA users. I posted the link so that if some one else comes here they may see that link. However mostly my questions never get any response on XDA forum. – political science May 30 at 23:04
