Users of Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos can now install the latest Android 4.4 KitKat update on their smartphones.

According to International Business Times, the latest firmware version, Android 4.4.1 Kitkat, is available for the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos. The Android 4.4.1 can be installed using a custom ROM, the CyanogenMod 11.0, which was released by 'pawitp' who is one of the recognized XDA developers.

Particularly, the CM 11.0 build based on the Android 4.4.1 KitKat update is created for both the GT-I9082 and GT-I9082L variants of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos.

Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos owners who wish to install Android 4.4.1 KitKat update on their mobile device need to upgrade first to Android 4.2 because the custom ROM will not work on Android 4.1 stock firmware.

There are pre-requisites when installing Android 4.4.1 KitKat update on Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos. First, it should be noted that the CM 11.0 firmware for the Galaxy Grand Duos is only applicable for particular models, namely, the GT-I9082 and GT-I9082L. Verify the model number of your unit by visiting Settings > About Phone > Model Number.

Second, the battery level of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos should be 80 percent or higher. This is to make sure that the device will not experience power loss during the installation process for Android 4.4.1 KitKat update.

Third, install the appropriate USB drivers for the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos on your computer to ensure that the Android device will connect to it easily as you proceed with the installation.

The owners of Galaxy Grand Duos also need to create a backup of all the important files and settings stored on the device before they install the Android 4.4.1 KitKat update, as flashing a custom ROM may likely wipe out the content to the smartphone. ClockWorkMod is one of the custom recovery tools that can be used to create the backup.
