  2. Press and hold Power+volume Up for a few seconds. It will display first a green screen.
  3. Release the button after the screen shows a red display to show the Android sytem revocery.
  4. Select apply update from external storage’ and select the update file. Use volume keys to select and power key to confirm.

    thanks though for the update. meron na ako fm :D

    • Sir marcus, na delete po ba lahat ng apps nyo nung nag update kayo manully? pls reply naman po.

      • Hi,

        Nung ako nag update, hindi naman na delete yung mga apps ko, kala ko nga madedelete eh…

        • I just updated my flare but the g sensor is stil not fixed. I did the calibration alo but nothing happens.

          • nag-update din ako ng Flare ko into v37…
            nagfiflip na ang SMS nya pero minsan lang kc parang sira ata ang G-sensor nya….
            pana po ma ibalik sa v22 ang ICS ko?

    • My cousin just did the update today, I haven’t tested if the G-sensor is properly working but tinkering with the system settings I think I saw a G-sensor calibration not sure if it was already present before the update though.

  3. pwede pa help, ayaw mag start nung unit ko tapos nung update, any suggestions?

  4. Nagawa ko to. And its working…

  5. does this void the warranty?

    paano po i disable yung vibrating while texting?? ng uncheck na po ako sa settings pero nag vibrate pa din,,pls help,,lalong umikli battery life ko

    • Settings > Language&input>Keypad>Options (yung three horizontal lines) uncheck lang yung “vibrate on keypress”

      mas tatagal din ang battery pag walang widgets sa homescreen. and if you have a lot of apps installed, download “Clean Master (Cleaner)” app. may widget yun na “1TapClean” which kills/Stops running apps and useless systems apps.

      ok din ang “Titanium Backup” pero mas magagamit yung app na yun pag na-root na CM Flare mo..

  10. Hi, tanong ko lang po… Anu ang advantage o bakit kailangan i-root ang CM Flare? Para saan po ba un? Panu po ba gawin un?

    Your response is highly appreciated. Thanks.

  11. Hello po disable na po yung idodownload :(

  12. sir. bat indi mkta yung file nilagay ko naman po sa root eh. dinownload ko po yung update sa website ng cherry mobile.

  13. ay oo nga pala. yung zip file mismo ang nilagay ko sa root nang SD. kailangan papo bang e extract at yung extracted file ang ilalagay sa root?

    salamat po.

    • huwag i-extract.. yung .zip file mismo ilagay lang sa root or main ng memory card..hindi mo seselect pag sa phone storage nilagay.

  14. Bkt ayaw sakin tanggapin?? Hinahanap ung E: Tmp sideload blahh blah blah?? San un??

  15. I calibrate niyo nalang po para maayos ung g-sensor.

  16. Ramon Mario Jaranilla says:

    information on how to update bluetooth software for flare please?…cannot connect to most media devices I try to connect to.

    • na-update na ba to v37 yan? try nyo muna.. or masmaganda pacheck nyo na sa outlet kung saan binili or sa service center kung wala na warranty..

  17. Para mas sulit ang update, i advise you to have it updated at your nearest CM service centers, they are the best people to do the job total, all units naman are under warranty pa diba? Never experiment.

  18. Guys ung sakin ok naman po ung G-sensor nya.. nag auto rotate naman ung SMS pati ung keyboard nya kahit hindi updated and rooted… nag check lang ako ng calibration sa settings..

    E: failed to verify whole-file signature po ang lumabas sa after the update, then after rebooting stock na siya after mag-appear ng cherry mobile logo.
