How to upgrade Infinix Hot 2 X510 to Marshmallow using SP Flash Tool


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 https://journal.hovatek.com/how-to-upgrade-infinix-hot-2-x510-to-android-6-marshmallow/ 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!!

Kingroot wont work. It’s the TWRP + SuperSU Combo that’ll root it

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.

Reply

No need to unroot or flash previous updates. Just flash this and your phone will be upgraded to 6.0

Does the PC make a sound when you connect the phone?

Reply
Hovatek

open device manager then connect the phone while switched off and let me know what the phone gets detected as

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

Reply
Hovatek

Not sure. Did you flash using the firmware upgrade option?

Reply
Tomjoe

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?

Reply
J

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

Reply
Hovatek

Have you flashed a custom recovery to the phone?

Reply
J

Nope…. Haven’t… Am looking for one without bugs.. So I won’t increase d phone’s problems

Reply

J

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?

Reply
Hovatek
