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.

    Was trying to get it ready for d 6.0 upgrade by unrooting it…. I flashed it with system and recovery at first but it stopped detecting d sims… I tried fixing d invalid imei probs with mtk engineering but it kept saying command failed to send… So I decided to flash it with d whole firmware…. It was during this flashing that it got stuck @98% for unknown reasons… And gave an error msg… Now d phones totally dead… Not been detected at all

    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?

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

    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?

          Check if your recovery is stock recovery or a custom recovery like CWM or TWRP
