Charge your phone to about 70-80% just to be safe.
Make sure and backup your data to google first (apps, contacts, etc.)
Download the file to your computer, or to your phone.
Put the file on the microSD memory card in the phone, in the main/root directory, NOT in a folder.
Rename the file update.zip
Reboot the phone into recovery mode:
1. Turn off the phone
2. Power on phone by holding the Volume UP and power button at the same time. After the logo appears, take a finger off the power, leave on the volume up
3. A very tiny menu appears on the phone (hard to see), Volume Up one time puts you into the recovery mode.
4. Use volume down, move down to “Apply update from SD card”, press power button to apply the update.
So, that was all about the BLU Vivo XI Plus Android Pie update release date, features to expect.
