how to upgrade infinix hot 2 x510 to Android 6.0 Marshmallow with sp flash tool

Infinix recently pushed an Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) OTA update to the Infinix Hot 2 X510. OTAs like this take time to go around and not everyone is willing to wait for God knows how long to receive the update so we posted the guide at to enable Infinix Hot 2 users easily upgrade their phones to Android 6.0. For those who are still having issues getting this done with that guide, we have provided an alternative; an SP Flash Tool flashable format of the OTA update.

Note: This is not an official firmware from Infinix. Team Hovatek dumped the firmware of our copy of the Infinix Hot 2 X510 which had been successfully upgraded to Marshmallow (Android 6.0) using the above guide.

Will I be able to flash future OTA updates after flashing this ROMDump?

Yes, you will. The ROMDump is not rooted and is also running on stock recovery. It passed the System Check test, see proof below:

Infinix Hot 2 X510 System Check Success!!

How do I upgrade my Infinix Hot 2 X510 to Android 6.0 Marshmallow using SP Flash tool?

  1. Good morning, I tried to flash my infinix hot 2 stock recovery so that i can install the marshmallow update both sp flashtool and infinix flashtool don’t respond and when i unplug the phone, I get error 2005. i have installed vcom drivers and tried using 3 different systems but I get the same result. It was rooted using kingroot but I unrooted it. please help me update my phone

  2. I rooted my hot 2 and installed twrp recovery do I have to unroot and uninstall the twrp recovery before flashing the marshmallow rom and also I didn’t install the last two updates on the lollipop ROM.

  3. It’s installed…. My c8 had d same problem… I installed it then and it’s been working fine.. Also used on X510 6.0 yesterday and today again… bUT I don’t know y this X506 is just like this

  4. I Guess it was because I’ve not restarted d laptop after installing d other drivers in d list… I just did and it worked…. But d ROM X506 J609 ROM in the link is d kitkat ROM

  5. worked perfectly.. used sp flash tool and unticked userdata after loading scatterfile.. pressed all d volume buttons and power button simultaneously and sp tool detected and it used like 10mins

  6. Flashed with d lollipop ROM and d TouchPad no longer works…. Flashed it back to d kitkat ROM… Still d it’s not working… D TouchPad I mean… Did I do something wrong or it just developed d problem coincidentally with d time I Flashed

    1. For your touch pad to ave stopped working on flashing a new ROM, you should consider if your device actually fell down during the process.. Was the tp(touchpad) working well before the ROM?Did the flashing process finish before you reboot? Did you flash the correct ROM scatterfile? These are the questions you should answer as i have flashed several devices and none stopped touching… Any other observation?

  7. I even took it to an engineer to check if there’s anything wrong with d TouchPad.. He checked and said there’s no problem detected.. .

  8. OK…. Is there any custom ROM I can install on it? Custom lollipop ROM… Perhaps I can use that.. Since I can’t get any of d stock roms to work

  9. D first time I Flashed with d lollipop ROM…. It performed an encryption for 17mins b4 completing booting…. Since it completed d booting… d touch no longer worked…. Does d encryption have to do with d touch not working?

  10. Did that…. Didn’t work…. Installed a custom ROM… Still d same…. Am all out of ideas hovatek…. Any other ideas left

  11. Everyone loves what you guys are usually up too. Such clever work and
    coverage! Keep up the superb works guys I’ve incorporated you guys to my own blogroll.

  12. How do i download the file ? When i skip ads it takes me to the hovatek file but unlike the january build it doesnt give any download option.

  13. We tested d infinix X506 with another TouchPad…. It worked….so d fault was from d TouchPad all d way.. . It’s spoiling just coincided with d time of d flash…. Thanks for ur help through it all….

  14. Roger that…. Pls do you give guides on computers too… Wanna reload my window xp desktop computer…. I’d really appreciate if I get a guide on how to go about it
