How I Fixed / Repair A Bricked Infinix Hot Note X551 Android Phone

Yeppy! Finally, the infinix hot note x551 which was bricked has finally woken up from coma after about 4 days. All process completed and the device is now working fine.

If you have been following my latest posts especially those that has to do with rooting and installing cwm recovery, you would recall I made mention of my infinix hot note x551 hard-bricked. Hard-bricked in the sense that, the phone wasn’t even turning on when placed on charge even for hours. Following that post, I promised to publish a solution on how i fixed the device when the device starts running.

Just before we move to the solution proper, I’d like to share how it happened. Perhaps, it would come in handy for those interested.

Few days ago, I intend doing a factory reset on the phone. My aim was to factory reset the phone to its default state since I barely use the phone considering the fact that I own an iPhone, Blackberry 10 as well as the latest zero 2. Before doing a factory reset, I had to unroot it using the Kingroot app in other to avoid bricking (soft demage). Every thing worked out well and the factory reset process went smoothly.

Just when the phone had fully started up and running smoothly, an update popped up. I didn’t waste time reading the description hence I initiated the download update.

Download was complete and the phone had to restart in other to complete the update. It was during this process, the phone automatically came up with a No Command Error. Ooophs, phone bricked! At that point, the only options displayed were the once shown on the image below:

Bricked Infinix hot note X551 android phone

I had to research on how to unbrick the phone and while following a tutorial online, there was an interruption and the phone became hard-bricked. That means, it wasn’t turning on anymore. Even when connected to the computer and a power outlet. Simply put, no sign of life on the phone. About 4 days later, the phone came back to life, I initiated the flashing process and Voila, infinix hot note X551 is fully back to life and functional.

So, now that you know the story, let’s head-on to how I was able to fix it. This should aid you in case you encounter any issues with the infinix hot note or any other android phone running on MTK (MediaTek) processor.

Repairing Bricked Infinix Hot Note X551

Just before I lead you on the processes involved, let me state down the requirements. It’s best you have all of these in place before proceeding.

Requirements

  • A Computer
  • A working USB cable (preferably the one that came with your phone)
  • SP Flash tool. You can download Here.
  • Infinix Hot Note X551 Stock ROM. You can download HERE.
  • Manually Install VCOM drivers on the computer. You can download the VCOM drivers HERE.

Steps:

==> Using your computer, Unzip the SP flash tool files, the Stock ROM file as well as the MT6577 VCOM Driver files to a folder where you can easily remember on your computer. You can use WinZip software in unzipping the files.

==> Make sure you install the right MT6577 drivers on your computer.

==> Now, navigate to the folder where you unzipped the SP flash tool files, right click on flash_tool.exe and choose to run as administrator.


==> When launched, Click on the scatter loading option and navigate to the folder where you unzipped the Infinix hot note stock ROM into.

==> Under the Infinix hot not stock ROM folder, select the MT6592_Android_scatter.txt file.

==> Wait for it to load up. When it’s done loading, untick the CACHE and USERDATA options and click on Download.

==> At this post, make sure your Infinix hot note phone is switched off then connect it to your computer using the USB cable.

==> The program will begin to count. Wait till the count is complete because any interruption whatsoever will make the phone hard-bricked.

==> When the flashing is complete, you should get a blue box with a white check mark stating download OK.

==> Click on the x button and close the SP flash tool program.


==> Disconnect your phone from the computer, leave it for like 10 to 20 seconds and then power it on.

Since it’s a fresh stock ROM installation, the booting time will take much longer than usual. Don’t panic, your device is safe.

When the device boots to the start up options, I am sure by then, there should be a smile on your face because you have successfully unbricked your phone.

  • I have unroot my infinix hot note x551 based on your post when I saw an update pop up on my phone, I quickly unroot and factory reset, I downloaded the update OTA several times yet it refused to be updated, my phone is still running fine it is what I used in writing this comment, but it still shows the update pop up I don’t know how to be successful in updating it. I used the kinguser to unroot it I confirm it with root checker before factory reset. I need your advice to enable me run the update and future updates.

    • Mahmud, you need to have an active network connection. When the update is downloaded successfully, you might get a prompt to install update. At this point, your phone will reboot and you will be faced with an interface showing an android device alongside the option which shows that update is in process.

Also on the flash tool, nI upload the scattered file and untick the CACHE and USRDATA connect my fone. It display charging and i was expecting it to start counting but it didnt. what do i do?

    • Mayol, it’s the phone still in shape?? By shape i mean, it’s the phone still running on?? If yes, just stop and re-do the process again. If no, then the phone has been hard bricked. You will need to follow our tips on how to go about that.

      • Samuel,
        when I connect the phone to both laptop and power source. It shows charging. I have tried the process again and again. remove and reinstall the drivers, still it wont the flash tool will now start counting. what can i do to it? I am missing the fone already

        • Mayol, if you connect the phone to the computer, the computer will make a sound and your phone should display charging. If that’s correct, remove the phone from the computer, make sure the phone is turned off, click the download button on the SP flash tool before reconnecting the phone to the computer again. Leave it for a while and the readings should come up. Try not to interrupt it oooo.

  • Guy, thank you so much. this thing worked like a magic.
    God bless you. pls contact me on my email so that we can know better. thanks again.

  • thanks Bro,
    the major challenge is to find the right driver to enable the unbrick process to work perfectly.
    so those who have issues with connecting the phone to a PC should check for the correct usb drivers to help them have a successful connection.
    i downloaded many drivers before i finally got the right one. follow the link posted by the instructor. its helpful. thanks.

  • Bro. My Infinix Hot Note got bricked soon after I install OTA updates. I recently rooted the phone use kingroot but later unrooted it again using the same app but I don’t know if the unrooting was successful. I will follow these procedures but I have a question, will I be able to load lollipop update on my hot note after following this tutorial or i’m condemn to no update.

  • when i connected my x551 to my laptop is says usb device not recognized…i also tried it on my friends laptop and it said the same thing even when i installed the vcom drivers…bro pls help me on this its really a new phone

  • Oga Sam Am Grateful. My Infinix Hnp Phone Now Powers On After 2days Of Not Attending To It As Earlier Advised. But The Issue Now Is That The Battery Is Too Weak To Be On Standby. The Phone Now Being Offline Is Refusing To Charge Past 1% Ever Since I Plugged It. Any Solutions?

  • Problem solved! What I had to do was to install custom recovery, boot into r/mode, did a wipe on my battery stats. didn’t have to reflash my custom rom. Really scared of lollipop rom for HN Pro, don’t know how to update lollipop 0828 in my list of dwlded files.

  • Thanks for your good work, man. After reviving my hot note I can’t access 3g network anymore. The battery Metre also doesn’t show the percentage. What should I do?

    • Shaffiq, please how do you mean you cannot access 3G network anymore?? In regards the battery meter, it has to be activated from the settings.

  • The only mode I can access is 2g, both for calls and net. I have tried resetting factory settings but it hasn’t helped either.

  • hello Sam thanks for the tutorial i stumbled on it while searching for a solution to my bricked phone on the internet. i followed the procedures and my phone is working well now thanks to you.you a genius God bless you.please is it possible for me to retrieve my lost data.

    • Faith, glad your phone is working well now. If you did a backup before the phone got bricked, YES. If you didn’t make a backup, you can’t retrieve the lost data. You just have to move on.

  • @samuel, i flashed d ROM with my infinix zero x506. so now my phn is hard bricked bro pls whats d solution to bring my phn on again??

  • HI, we’ll I have infinix hot note 1gb ram 16 hdd. Downloaded the stock Tom and sp flash tool used the medtek drivers as given in your tutorial. Yet it showed the phone as unrecognized device. But I was able to flash the phone via spflash tool. Then after waiting for 30 seconds tried switching it on bUT it wouldn’t turn on. Doesn’t even show battery charging or going into recovery mode.but now my windows 7 64bit recognises it as a USB storage device. O yes when It didn’t turn on after flashing I reconnected to sp flash tool then it gave me the 4032 dram error after going thru entire flash process. Now basically the phone is recognised as a USB storage device but isn’t shown in my computer and doesn’t show charging battery as well kept it charging for 1 day now. Still the same. Any suggestions ???

    • Eaze, apparently, the phone has been hard bricked. Just leave it charging for a day or two (you can set one or two hour intervals). It should hopefully turn on afterwards.

    • Victor, glad the phone is at least, turning on. Just charge the phone completely and then follow all of the steps in the guide above carefully.

  • Okay, my case is real different. Its a long story but amma make it short. It all started from a Nandroid backup/restore process gone wrong. I happened to flash the wrong backup which is lollipop, on already installed Kitkat ROM via Philz recovery (CWM-based). At first when I tried flashing, Flashtool recognised the device but gave an error which I couldn’t get the message. I tried repeating same flashing process but Flashtool doesn’t recognise my device. On device manager, my Infinix appears as “MediaTek DA USB VCOM (COM 3), when I uninstall the device from device manager and plug it back in, the port changes and keeps increasing by one.
    Now, I booted Windows 10 on my Virtual Machine cos I’m now using Linux, I opened flashtool, plugged my device, I changed my download mode in SP Flashtool options to UART and change the port to the one which my device was appeared as. Then I went to the format tab, clicked format. From the virtual machine logs, Flashtool was interacting (I guess formatting my device) but it didn’t appear in flashtool, not the red column nor the green or yellow. I decided to unplug the device and Flashtool popped another error message similar to the first one but this time, when I plugin my device to the PC, it appears a “Unknown device” in Device manager. It doesn’t even show on my Linux and also nothing is working not even charging. The device that been plugged in for 2 days now with uninterrupted power supply. What do you think I should do? Can the device still be fixed?

  • I have an infinix note 2 x600 (a month old), just had it bricked yesterday while trying to do an OTA . My device was rooted, so i had to unroot with SuperSU in order to do the Software update. When i tried it, it booted to recovery and got stock there. I read couple of stuffs online as to how to unbrick the infinix note 2. So i had to download the Infinix note 2 ROM about 1.2gb. Having downloaded and running with the SPFlash tool, all went fine and showed completed, so i clicked on the close button of the dialog box affirming Completed, then unpluged my phone from the USB and tried powering in, and that was it !! My phone refused to power on since then, not even to recovery mode. I have read all the processes on this link, on how to revive a totally bricked (dead) phones (Courtesy, Samuel), so i am doing the charging with the AC power and USB via computer interchangeably. Although, no luck yet, but i intend to keep it untouched for 2 days after charging till tonight and nothing. I will keep you guys posted as i progress in my Adventure to revive my Bricked Infinix note 2….

My phone refused to power on since then, not even to recovery mode. I have read all the processes on this link, on how to revive a totally bricked (dead) phones (Courtesy, Samuel), so i am doing the charging with the AC power and USB via computer interchangeably. Although, no luck yet, but i intend to keep it untouched for 2 days after charging till tonight and nothing. I will keep you guys posted as i progress in my Adventure to revive my Bricked Infinix note 2….

  • Hello Samuel, i think i may have used the wrong ROM. Please, what is the difference between these two ROMs (X600-H533-B1-L-20151223 and X600-H532-B1-L-20151223). I used X600-H533-B1-L-20151223 to flash my Ininix Note 2 before it got totally bricked. And if peradventure i’d used the wrong one, how do i get my phone back to life to Use the right ROM.
    Thanks for your mutual cooperation.

  • Bro i have a problem….updated my phone through spflash tool to 5.1….but now my phone is hanged….from last 2 hours…its just showing XUI screen…..what should i do

    • John, is it still hanged?? If yes, try pressing and holding the power button for some seconds to see if it will turn off.

  • I was unable to download Infinix Hot Note X551 Stock ROM. You can download HERE. Talk less of trying it. But I hope it gonna work for me.

  • Greetings to you, Samuel.
    Hope you can help again. I foolishly flashed a KitKat Stock ROM on Infinix x551 16+1 running on 5.1 Lollipop. My aim was to downgrade. Flashed successfully with green mark shown. Oops! My phone can’t power now. Tried to upgrade back to 5.1 Lollipop but am having SP Flash Tool Error. BROM ERROR: S_FT_ENABLE_DRAM_FAIL (4032)
    What should I do??? Please.

    • UncleBen, chances are, you may have mistakenly flashed in the wrong rom on that device. Maybe you flashed in that of hot note pro. You would have to try our 4 days waiting tip. Hopefully, that would fix it. All the best.

  • Hi Samuel. My Infinix hot note X551 phone has been in coma for some days now. I want to know if following the above steps will delete my files(pictures, videos, etc), or they will be preserved. Thanks.

    • Yes Paul, it will delete every file in it. When the flashing is complete, you will only be having the default apps. Simply put, it gives your phone that brand-new look.

  • Hey i reset the infinix x551 and its asking me to turn on wifi and sign in with a formal gmail acc which i tried but not working….pls help me

    • Dennis, chances are, the details you are inputting for your gmail account is wrong. Please re-try. BTW, you can even choose to skip that step.

  • please sam ,my infinix hot note is really giving me headache , it goes on anf off and it automatically install apps which i dont know where it comes from ….i have factory reset it ,but still it misbehaving ,unless i turn it on to ultra power saving mode before it can last for 2hrs before going off…

  • Hello Samuel. The flash charge function on my note note has stopped working for some days now. I tried searching for possible answers and solutions to the problem and happened to chance upon your blog. I have had the phone for over 3 months now. My phone takes more than 5 hours to charge completely and my PC cannot detect the phone since a few days ago. All it does is charges without even giving me the option of using it as a media device or for charge only. I haven’t rooted it or anything. Please do you know anything about it and can you help me out?

    • Gee, please confirm that the sim you intend using on the phone is not faulty and your phone’s sim slot isn’t faulty as well.

  • Sir, thanks for the tips. The operation was successful. The infinix is on but wont leave the page where it display “xui”. since yesterday. Am scared wat should I do. Plus help

  • Hello and many thanks for the guidelines. I am trying to bring back to life my sister’s Infinix Hot Note X551. I know she had issues when she tried to update the OS and the phone crashed, took it for repairs and the phone went off days after again. I suspect it was flashed and maybe done wrongly. However, there’s a bit of difference with hers in comparison to the problems listed with many others.
    The phone won’t power on, even when plugged in either on a computer or DC, but the screen flickers and it sometimes indicates that its plugged by displaying the charging signal and then goes off seconds after and then shows the charging signal again and then goes off again. It keeps displaying and going off in repeated cycles for as long as it is connected to a charger. What do I do in such a situation? Just leave it connected still?

  • Please…my infinix hot note isn’t connecting to the system because the usb port isn’t really working well and my phone is bricked. And showing ‘no command’ ..this showed after I tried updating the phone using wifi, after the update the phone restarted and then showed no command. Please what can I do…

  • Please,my infinix hot note isn’t connecting to the system because the usb port isn’t really working well and my phone is bricked. And showing ‘no command’ ..this showed after I tried updating the phone using wifi, after the update the phone restarted and then showed no command. Please what can I do am really bothered. Thanks

  • My infinix hot note x551 is not connecting to the system because the usb port is not really working well and my phone is bricked. It is showing ‘no command’ it showed after I tried updating the phone using wifi Please what can I do. Thanks

  • My Infinite Hot note 1gb only charges when I follow d procedure above to update my already rooted phone, please help me, please

    • Alex, in such situations, the first aid would be turning the phone completely off, removing the sim and sd card (i understand that the battery is non-removable) and then putting the phone inside a sack or rubber of rice. Leave it for like 24 hours or more and then, hopefully it will begin work again. If a non-water resistant phone drops into water, continuing to operate the phone at that point, damages the phone.

  • My HP Slate Voicetab became dead fwhen i tried updating it through wifi, but there was a problem in wifi so after that it became dead. Can u tell me what should i do?

  • Hi boss,,am Abdul Razak,, i was using this infinix hot note x551 with dual sim (which i think you are already aware),,but all of a sudden the slot for sim1 is closed after trying to to change it to a new micro sim. Initialy i thought the problem was from the sim so i decided to replace it with the sim that was already inside but still is closed,,,please can you help me?

  • [email protected] says:

    Good day everybody . Please I am in trouble with my infinix x551 rooted. Everything was OK with it until I accidentally deleted the odex file of the Google Framework service with Lucky patcher. Immediately i have the message “unfortunately the com.google.process.gapps has stopped “. Then the framework app was no longer in the system app. And the same message persist all the time. I can’t use play store, gmail and other google app. When I enter in system file with rootbrowser I discovered that the googleserviceframework.Apk was there but the GoogleServiceFramework.Odex in arm directory was deleted . Same the dex file in the dalvik cache was deleted. Now I tried to back up or restore the app with titanium back up pro but unsuccessful. It cannot, the process don’t end till 7 pm to 7 am in the morning it says “processing… ” . I reboot the phone but nothing to do the problem persists.

    After research I try to fixe it by downloading and installing the GoogleServiceFramework2.3.4.apk . It fixed it but partially. I can use all google app and play store. But the framework was not appear as a system app but as an user app . And when I reboot or turn off my phone the problem came back with same thing; no use of play store… The Googleserviceframwork5.1is appearing with a size of 12k instead of 3.25Mb in the past. I reinstalled th 2.3.4 version and it work but when I reboot the same problem.

    I think if I can found the good framework (5.1 or other ), with his odex file and the dex file in dalvik cache it can fixe the problem completely.
    So please please please if a member can help me by uploading them for me maybe it will work. Please help me I don’t want to flash my phone

  • I don’t know what exactly caused my phone to stop working. I slept, woke up and it was dead. like completely dead. I had it on auto-update and i’m not sure if this could have been related to the problem since most people with this problem had it when updating. and i’m seriously confused, so please help me.

  • Hello Mr. Samuel. I pray that God reward you enormously (for your wonderful works). I’ve benefited a lot from your posts and still hope I’ll find some help once more.
    I don’t really know how it happened – my Infinix Hot Note x551 (16+1) is constantly showing Privacy Protection Password. I can’t unlock it. I attempted flashing it using the same procedure here but whenever I connect it to SP Flash Tool, it starts charging instead. Another Infinix Hot Note x551 (16+1) is connecting well.
    Any possible solution???

  • Hi Samuel Adeniyi

    I bought a new infinix x551, at the store we tested the battery & it was charging well.I did not touch it until after 1 and 1/2 days, i decided to charge it fully before using but the phone wont charging & wont switch on too. The cable & charger is ok as i tested it with other phones. Kindly advise what could be the problem.

    Thank you.

    • Maryam, the best option would be taking the phone back to the store where you go it from. If it’s still within warranty period, they should do something about it.

  • Hi kelvin, I also bricked my phone, thing is, I had manually upgraded it to lollipop from kitkat successfully but after using it for a few months I wanted to go back to kitkat. I downloded the stock rom from Xdevelopers, using SP flushing tool I tried to flush it in but it ended up killing my phone. no USB recognition, no charging just a black screen. for two days it remained dead. I brought it back yesterday but with the lolipop rom. thing is, I still want kitkat but with so many differnent roms out there, am skeptical about the rom I download, mine is the 16GB/1GB version, will this rom work for me? am in kenya.

  • hi Samuel, I got my infinix note 2 few weeks ago, it was working perfectly well, until last night, I noticed the screen display was XUI. the stuff that comes on each ttime I switch on the phone. I tried switching off but to no avail, removed my sim and memory card, no changes, couldn’t switch off the phone. if the battery was removable I would have removed the battery and re inserted. the phone’s light was on through out the night, with tthis XUI display, there has never been an attempt of rooting or upgrading the phone. I’m so confused, pls what should I do.

    • Deborah, sorry for the late response. Here’s what you should do. Press and hold the power button for a longer period of time till the phone resets. Hopefully, that should fix the issue.

    • Hello Prince, So sorry to hear you were in an accident. I am not sure how you can order in Nigeria and get it in south africa without some extra cost added to the bill. Perhaps, you should be patient till the next time you are in the country.

    • Kevine, if you got the success mark and the screen still doesn’t turn on, chances are, you flashed in the wrong ROM file.
