why should one go to their service center to even try stock android? I would rather download stock android at home, try it and replace with custom rom.
for starters, they are a small company.
so setting up servers for OTA update would be costly for them.
also if they had provided a file link to download their official rom, then that jelly bean would have been modded in no time and there would be a long queue for failed rom updates.
hence they are offering for updates only in service centres.
people who have bought it for its advantages( xda support) do not crib for those updates as they have got it long back.
another reason why it still topping the charts.
there are similar phones form other manufacturers with almost same configuration.
namely Iball andi 4.5 h, intex and karbonn too, still those do not sell anything combined to what micro max sells.
reason : loads of custom roms available.
