You can only upgrade to a higher version of Android if your phone supports the upgrade. You can upgrade your phone by following the steps given below:

Step 1: Go to settings-> About Device -> Software Update

Step 2: Select Update

Step 3: It asks "check for software update"

Step 4: press OK

Step 5: wait for device to connect to server

Step 6: It will ask "download new update"

Step 7: select download

Step 8: wait for download

Step 9: Select install

Step 10: wait for install to complete

Step 11: after install it will give message "Device successfully updated"

Now your device is upgraded to Android 4.0.


It is very simple. First enable your data connection, then go to software update in your mobile settings. There you can update your mobile operating system. You can upgrade from Android 2.3 to Android 4.0.

What are differences between Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Android 4.0 IceCream Sandwich?

First you have to download the Android OS Configure (OS Updater). Click here to download and install the Android OS Configure (OS Updater) after the download.

Connect your Android device to your computer and click on “Find Android Device” on the updater software you just installed above.

Once your device is found, proceed to the next step and click on “Find Simular OS Platform Ver” to find the match.

Then click the button “Upgrade to 4.0” to upgrade your Android version from 2.3 to 4.0 by updating the data of Android 4.0.

Then you can upgrade further to 4.0.3 by clicking on the “Upgrade to 4.0.3” button, repeat same process again to update to version 4.0.4 and 4.0.5 if need be.

Then restart your device and you will have the latest version of Android on your device. The process is a very simple one.
