Android 8.1 manual update for Gemini 4G (x25 and x27)

If you have trouble updating your Gemini using the over-the-air udpate mechanism you can follow the guide below to perform a manual update.

To proceed, start by downloading the update archive from It's easier to download this archive directly from your Gemini, where you just need to open a browser and point it to the URL above. The file will be downloaded in your Download folder.

You can also download the file on a computer and copy it to your Gemini Download folder at a second stage.

Once the file is downloaded, open the File Manager application

Next, we will have to copy the file inside the root folder of the Internal Storage. To do that, simply long tap the file to select the file and then use the copy icon that will appear once the file is selected, as in the following screenshot.
