 Android 6 Marshmallow upgrade for Tecno Camon C8

Tecno finally released Marshmallow for the Tecno Camon C8. The Marshmallow update was taken down shortly after it was released because it had a lot of bugs but we have the download link for those who want to try or Mod it anyway. We’d released a guide on upgrading Tecno C8 to HIOS so you might want to give it a shot if the Marshmallow update is way too buggy for you.
