How to upgrade Tecno Camon C8 to Android 6 (Marshmallow)


 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.

Flash back the firmware, install necessary OTA’s then flash the Marshmallow update directly instead of HIOS

Reply
J

But after installing that…. D marshmallow update refused to install…

Try removing HIOS by flashing back the firmware

It keeps saying installation aborted because this is an “h352_et_a2” device and the update is not compatible. What do I do?

Reply
Hovatek

was your phone ever rooted or is it running on a custom recovery?

Reply
Mike

no, I haven’t done any tweaks whatsoever.

Reply
Hovatek

what’s your phone’s build number

Reply
Mike

C8-H352-A2-L-ET-20160121

Hovatek

You’re getting that error because the update isn’t for your build

Mike

Mike

Okay, thanks a lot for the help.

Reply
Hovatek

Reply
Hovatek

Yes, Maybe for your variant

Hovatek

There are multple variants of the C8. The update seems to be compatible with only 1

You must be flashing a file which isn’t recovery flashable.

Please Hovatek am downloading the so flash tool zip file to manually update my tecno c8 with build number (c8-H352-A2-L-20160118) to 6.0 marshmallow using my PC, please am I doing the right thing? I recently update it with system update but it’s not marshmallow it’s still lollipop that’s why I want to flash it with 6.0 marshmallow. Hope am doing the right thing and am downloading the right update for my build number?

Yes, you can. If you find this build too buggy then try the one @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-16502.html
