Notice: Always Take Backup of Files and Database Before making an update.
You can update your theme manually by performing the following steps:
WordPress by default has a limited number of menu items. When you import our demo site, which contains a lot of menu items, you might not be able to save changes you make to a menu. You can fix this problem by contacting your hosting and asking them to add the following lines to php.ini file:
suhosin.post.max_vars = 5000 suhosin.request.max_vars = 5000
This problem is most likely related to JetPack and memory settings of your hosting. You can either disable JetPack or read what the JetPack developer wrote: Regarding the memory limit, please refer to the WordPress Codex section concerning this problem. Some sites that load many plugins alongside WordPress ultimately require a higher memory limit than WordPress defaults to, but since this is limited to specific hosts and configurations, it must be dealt with on an individual basis. You'll find the Codex article at: http://codex.wordpress.org/Common_WordPress_Errors#Allowed_memory_size_exhausted

You can use the Codestyling localization plugin (http://wordpress.org/plugins/codestyling-localization/) to translate/rename all the theme's labels. Another solution is to edit the Theme folder/languages/en_US.po file directly in the editor and manually edit labels you want to translate.
If you get a white screen or some other error when trying to import our demo content, this probably happens because of the maximum execution time limit. You need to increase the maximum execution time (upload time) setting of your web server. The default maximum execution time on web servers is 30 seconds. Please increase it to 120 seconds. Possible ways of achieving this are:
Ask your hosting provider to take care of this for you.
