Interested users can go ahead and install Android 4.4.2 KitKat update on their Galaxy S Advance using our step-by-step guide given below. IBTimes UKwill not be held liable for any device damage during or after the firmware installation. Users are advised to proceed at their own risk.

Pre-requisites

The Android 4.4.2 official AOKP ROM and the instructions given in this guide are meant for the Galaxy S Advance GT-I9070 model only. Verify device model number by navigating to Settings > About Tablet.
Verify that your phone has access to the latest custom recovery tools such as TWRP v2.6.3.0 and higher or CWM v6.0.4.5 and above.
Back up data and settings using a recommended custom recovery tool, like ClockworkMod (CWM) or TWRP, as it creates a complete image of the existing tablet setup. In Recovery, choose Backup and Restore and tap Backup.
Verify correct USB drivers for the phone are installed on the computer (download Galaxy S Advance I9070 USB drivers) from https://rapidshare.com/files/416304166/SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones.exe

Ensure USB debugging mode is enabled on the phone, by navigating to Settings > Developer Options (NOTE: Tap the device's Build Number seven times to unlock or reveal the hidden Developer Options under Settings.) Then select the checkbox to enable USB debugging mode under Settings > Developer Options.
Make sure the device has at least 80% battery charge to prevent unexpected device shutdown (due to battery drain) while installing the ROM.

We are not responsible for any damage to your phone or data. Please take backup of your device prior to this update.

Ensure the phone is unlocked (not locked to a specific carrier) and rooted with the latest ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery (v6.0.4.5) installed.

If not installed please follow these steps to install custom recovery mode (CWM or TWRP)


*** Sometimes after temp cwm you are nt able to access the Mem card which leaves you with 2  options.

1)Factory reset by going back on main screen of cwm and then look for sd card again 

2)Choose it from Internal Memory.
  • Place all 3(or 2 if you're rooted) zip files in your external SD card
  • Power off. Boot into recovery by holding Vol.Up+Home+Power.
  • By navigating via volume buttons, choose install zip from external sd card, and install root.zip... shouldn't take long.
  • In the same way install update.zip. Now in a few seconds, you will get a different screen, this is Clockworkmod recovery, albeit a temporary one..
  • In this recovery, go to install zip, then install zip from external sd, and choose CoCore+TWRP. After installation, keep going back until the main cwm screen, and hit reboot.
  • NOW, Everytime you boot into recovery (which is the way to backing up and installing custom ROMs) you will get TWRP.

Now, you are rooted, with a custom kernel, and TWRP ( a custom recovery). You can either stay on stock Samsung firmware, or continue through section C, and get yourself a custom ROM.
