The last ROM Dump we dropped for the Infinix Hot2 was the X510 March 2016 ROM Dump. There have since been several minor OTA updates (almost every 2 months), the last being the January 2017 Build (X510-D5110-M-Androidone-20170118) so we felt its time to drop another Dump to make rolling back easy for Hot 2 users. This ROM Dump is SP Flash Tool compatible.
Why would I need a ROM Dump?
The Infinix Hot 2 has received several OTA updates since launch, ranging from minor (e.g Infinix Hot 2 X510 December 2016 update ) to version updates (e.g Infinix Hot2 X510 Lollipop to Marshmallow update). If you’ve rooted or modified your ROM, you would have to flash back the stock ROM (thereby unrooting your MTK) before installing the target OTA update to avoid bricking your phone. Now, lets assume the Stock ROM you have is Lollipop or the January 2016 Marshmallow Build Number and your last build was the September 2016 build after which you rooted. To install the October 2016 OTA, you would have to flash back your Lollipop / January 2016 Marshmallow firmware then install all OTA updates from February till December. This is data and time intensive as opposed to having a recent ROM Dump to help you unroot so you’re just one or 2 OTA updates away from your target update.
