Tough max zte t84 - System Update

My message app keeps crashing and so I thought I should do a system update.

Android 5.0.2, Kernel 3.10.49


However I cant find any instructions on how to do this.


When I click system updates under About phone it just says "Copy update package to storage card for system updates".

Where do I get the update from?

By storage card I assume they mean the phone storage, as the device does not have an SD card.


Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Hi @EventSecretary


Thanks for your question and sorry to read about the difficulty updating your handset.


The following page does advise that your handset should have a micro SD slot however there is no download link available to down the update:


To confirm, you are not able to locate a slot for Micro SD card?


I look forward to your response.

Yes it does have a slot. But we don't have card. But that is pointless if there is no download

Did anyone end up being able to update their T84?

The ZTE downloads page says their was a FW update to Android 5.02, but that it was available OTA only. No downloadable package.

ZTE very rarely issued updates, and only provided a downloadable package if the update couldn't be delivered OTA (ie if it had to be physically loaded onto the device).
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
