This is the first post which provides LAVA IRIS 501 Jelly Bean Firmware 4.1.1

It will also work for Prestigio MultiPhone 5000 DUO

Recently LAVA Iris 501 has got Jelly Bean update. You need to visit LAVA service center for updating your handset.

Here I am giving Jelly Bean Firmware so that you can Update your handset yourself.

What's needed:

  • USB data cable


  • MediaTek USB VCOM drivers


  • SP Flash Tool


  • LAVA Iris 501 Jelly Bean Firmware
Download all files from links which are given in my post. - All Links upadated (26/04/2013)

Process:

Switch off Mobile, Remove Battery and after few seconds again insert battery (Do not switch on mobile and also do not connect USB cable at this time)

Install MediaTek USB VCOM drivers in your PC.
Open SP Flash Tool, then click Scatter-loading button to load the scatter file. It will load Firmware files. Click on Firmware Upgrade Button. It will check all files and it may give a Checksum Failed warning. Just Ignore this warning, Click on OK if warning is there and connect mobile with USB cable. It will start updating your mobile. Complete process will take around 5 minutes. Now you can enjoy with Jelly Bean.

Media Tek Driver

MT6577 USB VCOM drivers - (In case if you are not comfortable with above mentioned driver)

SP Flash Tool v3.1248.0.96

Thanks a lot for the firmware. Today i gave my phone at service center. And they promised that they will give the full firmware tomorrow along with my updated phone. Your total size is about 700 MB. But they said its about 1.5 GB including data of 2 games which will be there on internal SD card. Why there is size difference? :unsure:

Once again thans for this upload :)

It is Rar file hence in compressed form. Once you extract, you will get a folder of 1.38 GB which contains total 15 files. Games which are pre installed are Asphalt 6, Cricket Fever, Ninja Rush Delux, Saving Private Sheep and Shark Dash. Now Chrome and Facebook are pre installed. They have included few more application like Rock Stand, Pandit Ji, Lava Zone and We Chat.

One more important thing is that now Stock Recovery is almost same as CWM. Hence I think CWM is no more required but I need to check further.

Ya its fine. One extracting i got 1.38 GB of data and total 15 files. And cwm recovery will be needed for flashing custom rom as the stock recovery doesnt have option for clearing dalvik cache.

And i think u have already rooted your device now ;)

I will start my experiments after 2 days :ph34r:

Thanks Kamal Ji,
Will download them on friday/saturday night, and let you know my update progress.

If possible, make Root Instructions for this JB Update, it will help people to use exact working rooting method.

Lastly: Fahad where are you, how was your Update experience with service center ?

A separate thread is already written by me for jellybean rooting process. You can see the link in my signature.

Good to see again.
You seems to be very helping the Lava Iris 501 Guys. I wish i was in kanpur, could have met a interesting person like you.
I am from Allahabad.

Downloaded the files from links you posted before 4shared.

Will be flashing the phone in next hour.

For Fahad phone: I doubted this as I've earlier had very bad experience with U.P. Based service center, not of Lava, but the young guys these centers hire are too fast on keyboard, and never think of saving a second to save customer's phone/data.
Its good Fahad got new phone, hope he'll chime-in here sometime soon.

how to load drivers you have linked.
they fail to install on win7, if i right click and try to install them,

Also the firmware upgrade option doesn't load anything to my phone.

Thanks for your efforts Kamal Ji.
After scratching my head for few hours, I finally updated my Lava Iris 501 to Jelly Bean 4.1.1

The New boot Logo is Good.
System feels smooth, now time to root and restore my backup.

for anybody who's having trouble with SP Tool failing to detect your phone, you can do this

After the checksum error, connect your phone, While phone is connected and SP Tool Still trying, goto device manager and select "add a legacy device"
now select com port and select the Mediatek drivers you downloaded from the link on first post.
it would install the mediatek port and once you done this, SP Tool will start uploading the firmware to the phone.
Make sure you do not touch the phone or cable during the update process, any interruption to USB link between PC and Phone at this time can BRICK your phone.
The update would take 3-10 minutes depending on your PC and USB speed.

Enjoy the all new IRIS 501.

It is good to know that you got success in updating your phone. I am trying to make a custom ROM for our device. Will update soon if succeeded.

Hi There,

Will this work with the Prestigio 5000? As I'm pretty sure it and the Iris is the same phone?

Had some problems on my PAP5000T and managed to update using this ROM and latest custom ROM, so it should work without problems, only Lava branding. :)

^^ Dr.Saab, this is a tough question.
normally warranty should not be lost, cause the link is of Stock ROM, which is un-touched by outsiders. and non-rooted
But if service center wants they can confuse you that its your mistake, blah blah blah

A friend recently got his phone updated in service center, they didn't provide any documents for this update, so If the phone gets defective at a later date, he has no proof whether he updated on his own, or from service center.

Your name reminds me of a uncle in Faizabad,
