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.
