How To Upgrade JioFi Firmware?

JioFi is a personal hotspot device by Reliance Jio that can provide internet up to 31 devices with good internet speed. When you buy the new JioFi device then most of the times it is on the older versions of the firmware. This can cause bad network and slow internet speed and hence a bad user experience.

However, the company’s response to this problem is to upgrade to the latest JioFi firmware. When you upgrade to the latest version of the JioFi then most of the bugs are fixed and the speed & performance have been improved vastly as compared to previous versions. It also removes internal system errors in JioFi device(s).
