Installation Instructions

Note: Before following the guide below to update your phone’s firmware:- ensure that the phone is NOT ROOTED; backup all important data; to avoid getting stuck on Factory Reset Protection (FRP) screen, remove all linked Google accounts from the phone first; ensure to factory reset the phone after successful upgrade- to ensure smooth running of your phone.

  • Download any of the packages (from above links) that you wish to flash on your Axon M BLADE Z999 device
  • Copy the file to the root of your phone’s storage, that is, /sdcard/… (internal storage is preferred, if you have enough free space)
  • Confirm that the file has been successfully copied to the root of your phone storage by checking via File Manager.
  • Reboot the phone now in recovery mode:- Turn off the phone completely and wait about two seconds. Hold Volume Up + Power Button simultaneously until the screen lights up…then wait a few seconds (usually less than 10 secs) for the phone to boot into recovery mode.
  • Use volume down to navigate up and down, then power button to confirm selection
  • From the recovery screen select Apply update from sdcard, navigate to where you have copied the downloaded file and select it
  • Wait patiently for some minutes while the firmware upgrade is in progress. The process should only last about three (3) minutes or less…just be patient and do not interrupt the process
  • Once the upgrade is completed, select reboot system now and wait patiently for the phone to boot completely to system. First boot MIGHT take a while.
  • After successful upgrade, factory reset the phone by going to Settings > Advanced Settings > Backup and Reset
  • Flashing complete!
