    1. Package installation failed it because many reason. But first think is OTA update need official recovery first and non rooted device.
      But why not try using offline update?
      If you still using official recovery, but still error try using custom recovery twrp and try to install the update sometime it need custom recovery to do update

    1. Official recovery is recovery from official ROM, offline update is like above guide you can see it. Custom recovery is recovery that made by another developer that can use on S650 device and have many function like backup, restore, install and etc.
      Follow above guide to install official ROM

  7. From what I understood from the forums, I must use a preload from an older row Rom or I must untick preloader in flash tool, is that correct?

    1. you must use special preloader, put it on target_bin and the rename checksum.ini file and the to regular flashing step.
      i hope it fix the phone.

  8. Replacing the preloaded file and renaming the checksum.ini does the task!
