How to update Tecno Phantom 6 Plus to Nougat using Tcard

A few days ago, we announced the release of Nougat for the Tecno Phantom 6 Plus with Build Number A9-H971A-N1-170725V72 .

Quite a number of Tecno Phantom 6 Plus users have been having serious difficulty updating because the server (where the Tecno A9 OTA is located) is very slow. Some have had to go through 24 – 48 hours of extremely slow downloading only to end up with an error… yes, its that bad.

Team Hovatek has been able to obtain the Tecno A9-H971A-N1-170725V72, which was extracted from a working Tecno Phantom 6 Plus after successfully downloading the Nougat OTA file. This is the Tcard format which you can easily install offline (without needing an internet connection) from your SD card.

Also, if you have any reason to downgrade your Android phone to Marshmallow (after having successfully updated), you’ll have to go through the OTA download process all over….again. This is both time and data intensive isn’t it?

Here lies the obvious advantage of having the Tecno Phantom 6 Plus (A9) Tcard offline; you can install it anytime you want without having to expend data.
