Lava has rolled out updates for the Iris X1 and the Iris X5 handsets. The updates includes bug fixes, fixed restart issue faced by some users and performance improvement. It is a FOTA update, you might have already got the notification for the same.

The other way to check for software updates is to tap settings, about, software update and then hit the check for update button. For any software updates it is recommended that you use Wi-Fi for 3G networks.

Also make sure that the battery level is over 50%, preferably over 75%. It would be better if you can backup your data, though is most cases the data will be intact. However lava has specially mentioned to take the backup as they recommend doing a factory reset after the new update.

If you have the Lava Iris X1 or the Lava Iris X5 and have updated, do leave your feedback.

  17. Hi, Do not get the update ( both X1 and X5 ). the mobile becomes useless. It crashes the OS. The settings will not work properly. Even you follow the correct procedure i.e. update -> do a factory reset and then use, Still you will end up with the Error and the mobile becomes useless.

  18. Dear Sir,

    I bought a LAVA Iris X1 six month back. At present my charger is not working properly and I have to adjust wire for charging purposes. Further duarability of battery is very slow,

  26. Hoping this will not be the first and last update for these devices. Lava is infamous for giving updates to its devices.

    1. Rightly said, Lava Iris X1 really best when compared to the likes of Unite2, samsung grand2 or neo or core2, the Lava Iris X1 is superb in call quality, gaming, video [HQ mode], RAM, touch, and above all it does not get heated or lagging or hanging, no call drop or connectivity issues, nothing to hinder its daily routine smartphone, and it really has style with substance, quick charging, worth the buy

      Congrats Lava International for making this Excellent for usage

        1. Ha ha ….iris x1 is a descent handset for 7000 and offer good experience for average users .user experience(not performance) is definitely better than unite 2. When play HQ games handset lags ..but we can play all graphics intensive game in medium graphics mode .After all its killer look and feel that we never get 7000 from any other brand .

  27. Gogi gionee elife e3 got update of kitkat why not micromax lava sets are not giving updates to canvas hd and iris 504q models

    1. Hi X1 is already powered by broadcom chipset [X1 is powered by 1.2GHz Broadcom quad core]
      Note: The chipset is Broadcom BCM23550

      So broadcom is superior than MediaTek and its known fact why would some one will down-grade on this X1, which is selling hot cake
