How to update Micromax Canvas 2 A110 to Android 4.2.2

Micromax is all set to roll out a Jelly Bean update for their Micromax A110 Canvas 2 smartphone. The company spokesperson has confirmed that the update will be available from the second week of March.

However, there is a catch in the situation. Unlike Samsung, Sony or HTC, Micromax will not be rolling out an OTA (over the air) update for A110 Canvas 2. Rather, consumers will have to take their smartphones to the service centre and customer service executive will do the update for them. This does sound like a cumbersome process, but Micromax confirmed to NDTV Gadgets that the update will be available without any any additional cost to existing A110 Canvas 2 customers.
