Software upgrade with dash 4.0 q203


Published on

Use these instructions to load stock android onto your Blu Dash 4.0 - fixes issues with Google Play Services and the error "Incompatible with other applications(s) using the same shared user ID". Also restores text-to-speech for Google Maps Navigation. I had to do the factory reset after, so had to lose all data/apps/customization.
