  26. Hi Sathish .. is it okay to do this without wiping my data?

  27. nisath nis says:

    kitkat 4.4.2 for y duos download ………https://www.mediafire.com/?y7shmk60w62x0i9

  28. You can do it but still when you install this ROM, it will automatically wipe all your device’s data.

  29. gautam kumar says:

    If i will install this custom rom kitkat 4.4 .then i can run the apps which runs only on android 4.4????

  30. vikaram singh says:

    hello sir.gdmorng.
    i am using a samsung Gts6102
    my problem is short ram.
    can it be increased..how.

  31. Nope, you can’t increase the RAM of your device.

  32. Hi, yes you could do that!

  33. VISHAL SAHJANI says:

    Hi, I have tried several times to download the rom from given link. But it stops downloading after completing 88%. Please provide any mirror link if possible.

  34. I will upload it to another server and will provide it shortly.

  35. How long does it take to reboot if its working?

  36. Usually a few minutes. For me it took like 5 minutes.

  37. My phone is Samsung Galaxy Y Dous GT-S1602 which is working fine after installing KitKat but i am facing some problems with bluetooth,notification tones these are not working how to fix this ???
    I rebooted soo many times stll facing same problems

  38. Is it the same procedure when i install the Lollipop version? Here’s a link http://www.mediafire.com/download/w1rc5lpz323fn33/Rom+Lollipop+5.0+G.Y.Duos.zip

  39. Yes, it is!

  40. Anonymous51 says:

    Sir,
    That is Not Kitkat,
    It is Just Kitkat Theme Based on Gingerbread 2.3.6
    No Official Update for GT-S6102 Came, Atleast in Asia.
    Can You Please Give the Link of Real Android 4.4.4?
    Or Even 4.0.x Will Work.
    As No Updates Came for This Device, Can You Please Give the Link of Android 4.0+ Which Came for Other Devices Ported for GT-S6102?

  41. You are wrong. The ROM given here is based on KitKat and not just KitKat theme based.

  42. Anonymous51 says:

    I’m Not Against You, Sir.
    But Your Information is Wrong.
    If You Think Your ROM is 4.4, then Try Using Some of the Apps that are built for 4.0+ Android.
    Like, Google Now Laucher.

  43. I understand but still most of the features of Android KitKat has been used in this ROM and i find it useful as well.

  44. Anonymous51 says:

    Sir,
    That’s What I Was Saying.
    It Has Kitkat’s “Feature”. But it is Not Kitkat.
    It is Running on Android 2.3.6
    Sir, You Are Fooling Millions of People Here.
    Shame!

  45. Who am I fooling here. I am not the developer of this ROM. I have just shared this ROM which I have found useful when i tried in my device. Yes, the ROM doesn’t support Android 4.4 based apps but it still shows the version as Android 4.4 in the About page and it has most of the functions of Android 4.4. Before criticizing someone, make sure that you are well aware of the facts. I have shared this for informational purpose. Its your wish to try it or not to try it and I am not posting fake information as well.

  46. I have instlled it bt i cant connect my phone via usb cable.i tried many time bt i cant connect it via usb cable. nd i m not use usb tethring..plz help me what i do to rsolve it.

  47. What is the max time taken for rebooting?

  48. Sathish says:

    10 minutes give or take but if it takes more time, boot into CWM and wipe data and cache and reboot.

  49. Hi Sathish,

    Thank you for your post.

    Everything worked fine for me EXCEPT that, at the end of the procedure, the screen is no more able to recognize any digital touch. I’m locked at the welcoming page… The “touchness” of my smartphone has gone… Could you please help me to fix this issue?

    Kind Regards

  59. You will have to go back to the CWM recovery, wipe data/cache and then reboot. Your device will work normally.

  97. Mohamed says:

    How long time does it take to boot the new room !?

  98. Sathish says:

    10-15 minutes maximum!

  99. Gajendra says:

    To Satish:
    This is one real good attempt that allows user to get over the limitation of Galaxy duos at least embellishing the interface looks if not the performance. The promptness towards users’ queries is also praiseworthy. Merely a line that could be added before the guide that this should not be expected as a full-fledged version of 4.4.2 which is quite logical because we can’t put boeing engine in cart and expect it to fly. In all, thanks for the good efforts.

    To akshri48 (Anonymous) who is complaining:
    Ever seen a gatecrasher who sneaks uninvited to a party, enjoys the treat but at the same time keep complaining?? Shame? Yes for sure but to whom? To a person who just unrevealed a technical aspect of a device and shared it with people for FREE and then responding to their questions as best as he could, putting significant amount of his time and efforts.

    You also seem not paying attention else might have perceived this whole process can get revert and the walkthrough with links is right here in the forum. Let’s postulate for a minute there really was any flaw in the sequence and you find it important for people to get aware and be cautious; even then you should have basic etiquettes and politeness to respond over a public forum.

    So shame in fact to you akshri48 sir because you didn’t realize any of it and are good only for squandering others’ time over your frivolous remarks. Learn something from this instance. Good luck.
