How To Install/Flash Android 4.4.4 KitKat in Samsung Galaxy Wonder (GT-I8150)

Samsung Galaxy Wonder is a legacy phone which is not getting updates from Samsung. The Stock ROM/Standard OS is Android Ginger Bread 2.3.5/6/7 etc and it will never get Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), Jelly Bean (Android 4.1, 4.2, 4.3), KitKat (Android 4.4) and the latest Android L (Android 5.0) officially from Samsung Corp. Now in this post, I will tell you how to make your Galaxy Wonder (GTI8150) running those ROMs including KitKat ROM from CyanogenMod Team (I would tell Android L, but It's not available for our phone for now). 

First you should know what OS you have now. it's under "setting" option and "about phone". you should see our OS version there. Before you start, remember the term DWYOR (Do With Your Own Risk) again.

Now, for the first part of installing this Android 4.4.4 on your Samsung Galaxy 4.4.4, you should've had a CWM (ClockWorkMod) installed on your Phone. If you don't know how, then go to this LINK.

Let's say that you've already Installed CWM on your phone. Now we need to prepare things that we need to make this work.

1. Download the Latest ROM Android 4.4.4 from Arco's link. You can Get it HERE
2. Download the Latest GApps for this ROM from TZkruzze link HERE.
3. Back Up your Internal SDcard then Format it to keep things clean when you go into new ROM.
4. Addition, If you want to back up your SMS to your External SD, you can use THIS app.
  1. Put the both files into your Internal SDcard in a folder "ROM" (you can create one and name it  yourself)
  2. Turn Off your phone and then, Go into your Custom Recovery (CWM) by pressing Power button + Home Button + Volume Up altogether for 1-3 seconds, then release the power button after Samsung Logo showing up.
  3. In CWM, your touch screen won't work. You can only use Volume UP and Volume down for choosing the opion, Haptic Back button / power button for "Back" and Home button for "OK".
  4.  Choose "wipe data / factory reset" and then select "Yes-Wipe all user data" with the home button.  Doing this you will erase all data, setting and applications from your phone.
  5. select "wipe cache partition" and then "yes"
  6. Select "Advance" and then "wipe dalvik cache " then "yes". after that press back button to go back to the main page.
  7. Select "Mounts and Storage" option, and then choose "format System", and "yes", then back to the main page again
  8. After you do all that, now Select "install zip" option and select "sdcard0" (SdCard1 if you're file is in External SDcard) and then find your ROM file /storage/sdcard0/ROM folder and Install it.
  9. After ROM installing is Finished, then choose "Install Zip" again, and Find your GApps file and Install it.
  10. If it's finished, then you choose the reboot option to turn on your phone.
  11. It will take 3-5 minutes to go into your homescreen
  12. Now you have Android 4.4.4 ( KitKat) in your Samsung Galaxy Wonder (GT-I810)
