After much anticipation, the infinix Hot 2 x510 finally gets Android 6.0 marshmallow update. While we have published an article in regards that on this blog, we promised giving a detailed guide on how to get the marshmallow flavor running on your own hot 2 device.
While the update is being rolled out via OTA (Over The Air), most hot 2 devices are yet to get the update prompt and if you are not so patient in waiting, you can actually flash the OS to your phone very easily.
I’ve flashed the Android 6.0 marshmallow OS to TechsNG’s infinix Hot 2 unit and everything’s running well. You can see the picture below.
Please don’t mind the picture quality, the whole process was done in the middle of the night hence there wasn’t enough lightening.
Would you like to get Android marshmallow 6.0 running on your hot 2 x510 smartphone? Let me guide you through the whole process.
First, it’s advisable you find out if the update is already available on your phone so that you don’t go through all these long processes. To check, navigate to settings > about phone > Software update. If it says your system is up to date, you can then commence with the steps below.
Please note that this tutorial is strictly for infinix Hot 2 smartphones that has not been rooted. If you rooted yours, you would first have to flash in the stock ROM via SP flash tools before installing the Marshmallow flavor.
==> First, download the marshmallow file for infinix Hot 2 x510 phone HERE.
==> Save the downloaded file into the root directory of your SD Card.
==> Turn off your infinix Hot 2 phone and boot into recovery menu by pressing and holding the power and volume up buttons together.
==> When you see something like Select Boot Mode, leave the buttons and wait a while. Press volume down button once and you should be displayed an android symbol with a question mark alongside a tag which reads ‘No Command’.
==> Press and hold the Volume up and power button again for like 4 or 5 seconds and you should be taken to the stock recovery menu properly.
==> Using the volume buttons, scroll down to Apply update from SD Card and use the power button as OK button.
==> Select the downloaded file and flashing should begin.
==> Be patient as the flashing process should take a long while depending on your definition of long.
==> When the flashing process is complete, you should see the last line stating ‘Install from sdcard complete’.
==> Select reboot now using the power button and wait for your device to boot completely.
Voila! You now have android 6.0 marshmallow OS operating on your hot 2 smartphone. You can further confirm by going to Settings > About phone.
