Please help K2I wont update

To start off I bought a K2I at a garage sale the serial is a B003 and it is stuck on firmware version 2.2.2 and wont update. I think it may have hacks on it but I cant uninstall them because im not sure what was installed and dont have the uninstall bin files. I tried some that i found but the device still will not update. any help please maybe a mass uninstaller or a newer firmware version maybe 2.3.

thanks in advance

Reports of "does not work" are hard to provide advice for.

Please also tell us what things do work.
(Such as:
Changes of the charge system light during charging and use ;
Changes to the screen display ;
Anything at all that might indicate if any of it is alive inside the case.
)

The most recent firmware is version 2.5.8 - -
But the series 2.x firmware was one that used difference files for the updates.
Meaning you have to step through all of the firmware releases one at a time, not jump from where you are to 2.5.8
