How to upgrade Infinix Note 2 X600 to Android 6 (Marshmallow)


how to upgrade or update Infinix Note 2 X600 to Android 6.0 Marshmallow

It is no longer news that Android 6 (Marshmallow) has come to the Infinix Note 2 X600 Over The Air (OTA). This is coming just about two months after the Infinix Hot 2 X510 received the Marshmallow update. This brief guide will explain how to correctly upgrade your Infinix X600 to Marshmallow because you’ll hate yourself if you get it wrong with the X600.

What should I know before upgrading my Infinix Note 2 X600 to Android 6? 

It is important you know your phone’s build number. To know this, Navigate to Settings > About > Build number. Yours should be H532 A1, H533 A1 or H533 B1. It is important you flash firmware

ONLY

for your build. Flashing a firmware for another build to your phone will cause it to go totally dead and the only way to revive your phone would be to loosen it down to the MotherBoard then make a jumper as instructed in the guide at https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-11899.html . This procedure is a bit technical so to avoid having to go through this, stick to firmware for your Infinix X600’s build.

Mine is rooted with custom recovery installed (running Android LL 5.1.1). Must I unroot before flashing the MM update with SP flash tool?

Reply
Hovatek

No, you don’t have to unroot if you’re using the SP flash tool format

NOTE : To flash ur phone using Sp flash tool, make sure ur device is rooted

Good day Hovatek…. Just have a little question pls…. Can a software problem make network fluctuate? A dead infinix note 2 was revived using d guide on how to make it work again… We did that and it’s working now… Just that d network fluctuates big time….and it’s been upgraded to version 6.0…Engineers have tried and tried but nothing works…. I just wanna know if software can make it behave that way… So I’ll downgrade it back to lollipop or any other thing that can make it work… Pls help me

Thats an nvram issue. Is it browsing signal (3G) that fluctuates or network (calls) bars?

Reply
Hovatek

Have you tried setting to 3G only in engineering mode

Reply

No… Only set to 3g only under phone settings

Reply
Hovatek

Try doing that under engineering mode

Yo, I have the x600 h533 A1 infinix variant. I flashed the stock firmware but now I cant turn wifi Bluetooth nor FM Radio on yet and gives no error. The IMEI also appears as ‘Unknown’ for both sim, Before flashing the stock rom the sim were working alright, even with 3G, but the other Wifi Bluetooth and FM radio weren’t working. Now after flash tried using the SN writer supplied with the firmware but I get this error https://www.4shared.com/photo/-XR6QWHXei/sn_writer_error.html .
Tried Maui Meta 3G but gives the error https://www.4shared.com/s/f5-PhK7eGei. I didn’t back up the nvram before flash rom, slipped on that one. Well, you gurus is there anything can help to fix this sh*t! Please. 🙂
