How To Manually Install MediaTek (MT6577 USB) VCOM Drivers On Windows 7

Earlier before now, we talked on how to unbrick a bricked infinix hot note x551 phone. Not only did we write on that, images on the post proved that the method works. Following that post, we made mention of having to manually install MT6577 USB  VCOM drivers which can also be termed as MediaTek USB VCOM drivers.

Since we haven’t written on how that can be done, we decided to publish a post which entails the whole process and here on this post, we will be using windows 7 as a case study.
