    I got a phone with android but the factory reset doesn't install android because google play doesn't work (prob. due to the age of the phone (3-4years).

    Now I do want to install a new android onto it but I can't access any of the phones settings (like turn on developer options or so). Is there a way to install a new android version?
    I have an SD card and I can install ISO files etc. onto it.
    I also have access to the phones storage if it tries to install the OS.

    Is there any way to do this?

    I got an Coolpad Porto S (E570). Yes it's a china phone^^

    Okay the situation just changed. I tried installing android again but this time I skipped the Wifi part. Therefore (i assume) it didn't try to install google play services and actually gave me a home screen (previously it failed to install google play services and didn't boot therefore).

    Now the play store still doesn't work but at least I can activate developer mode. I'll try installing another android version on it. I will post here further updates.

    Thanks for the help so far!
