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.
How to upgrade Tecno Camon C8 to Android 6 (Marshmallow)
- If you have rooted the phone then unroot it using the guide at https://journal.hovatek.com/how-to-unroot-a-mediatek-android-phone-in-order-to-successfully-install-an-ota-update. See how to root Android if you don’t know what rooting is
- Download the Tcard / SDcard format of the Tecno C8 Marshmallow update at https://hovatek.com/redirect.php?link=https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B0NGrHFUF1GbeFBmdkd2MV9EMFk&export=download
- Save the zip file to the root directory of the SD card i.e, copy directly, do not place inside any folder, do not unzip
