Firmware updating android
One of the things that interests most Android users is whether their handset will receive updates.
It can take ages to start a roll-out and even then, there are no guarantees your device will be seeing the update.
HTC Sync Manager: As the name suggests, this program is used to install updates, among other things, on HTC devices.
To get it, you can head over to the official HTC website and grab it.
RSD Lite: Motorola users usually don’t have problems with receiving updates, however, this toolkit will allow you to flash stock firmware on your Motorola again if you ever have any issues.
In case of an official ROM, we would check the appropriate website for each manufacturer and locate the proper ROM for our model of device.
Odin: Another program that allows you to install ROMs on your Samsung devices.
The advantage here is that unlike KIES, you can install the ROM you’ve downloaded yourself, such as one from Sam Mobile.
KIES: This program is used to update Samsung branded devices, allowing us to download the ROM and install it to the mobile device from your PC.
KIES itself downloads the firmware for you based on your device and location, so if a ROM hasn’t been rolled out to your device or location, you won’t be able to install it using KIES.
