Android 11 is here and the good news is that it's starting with Pouvoir 4 this year. Features like new priority notifications, media playback controls, messaging app bubbles, and many more features were announced for Android 11 Beta 1.
However, before you start installing the upgrade, here are some few things you need to put in place.
• Pouvoir 4 device (strictly for now)
• A laptop
• Transion's After sales software
• USB cable
• Download and follow guidelines
♦ THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU INSTALL
1. BACKUP YOUR DEVICE
This is a very crucial step you must take if you want to install the Beta upgrade. Kindly backup all of your files, being videos, music, apps, documents and every other thing needed to be backed up. Get yourself a cloud backup or you can choose to use softwatrea like Panfone Data Transfer. All you have to do is just plugging your cable and you're good to go.
2. CHARGE YOUR PHONE
It's important that your Android doesn't run out of power during the update. So ensure it has adequate charge before you start. We recommend making sure your battery is at around 70 to 80 percent as a minimum, before you start to install any update.
3. GET A SECONDARY PHONE
This step is optional but also safer, the Beta upgrade won't come with a 100% bug free experience, so it's advisable to get a secondary phone in case anything goes wrong. Anyways, there's a change to downgrade to Android 10 if you're not comfortable with the bugs.
♦ THINGS TO DO AFTER INSTALLING
1. WIPE CACHE AND FACTORY RESET
This is the quickest and easiest way to clear up any early battery drain bugs and performance issues. A factory reset and 'start from scratch' approach with new firmware gives you the best opportunity of avoiding the problems that seem to plague users following an update.
Once you've backed up all your data and installed the update, simply reboot into recovery usually by turning your phone off and holding Power and Volume Down simultaneously and then wipe the cache partition and factory reset. When you boot up again, simply restore your files from the computer.
2. TAKE NOTE OF BUGS AND WRITE A FEEDBACK ON T-SPOT
This is also a crucial step, the earlier you feedback, the earlier you get updates to fix the problems. Test all the new features and write your experience and problems you face using Android 11.
As I said above, I can't guarantee that the new Android version won't have any bugs, but the usual performance and battery issues, random reboots and crazy app behavior can generally be avoided with this simple procedure. You can submit your complaints hereif you have any issue installing the update
