What to do before installing the Infinix Hot 4 (X557) official Nougat OTA update

Some of those who upgraded to Nougat using Tcard or SP Flash tool on the Beta build complained of bugs. Hopefully, all that is fixed since its out of Beta but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take some precautions:

How to install or upgrade to the Infinix Hot 4 (X557) official Nougat OTA update

  • If you got an update notification on your notifications bar then simply slide down and tap the OTA Update notification prompt
  • If you are yet to get an OTA update prompt then navigate to Settings > About > System update and search for an update
  • Tap¬†Download and Install
  • Wait for the update to get downloaded (the update is 1479.74 MB in size)
  • Once download is complete, tap Restart & Install
  • Wait while the phone boots into recovery mode and installs the update (DO NOT interrupt)
  • The Hot 4 should reboot to home screen once the update is completed

My Infinix Hot 4 is bricked or stuck in recovery mode (no command) after installing the OTA update

In such a case, you’ll need to download Infinix Hot 4 (X557) stock ROM then flash it using SP Flash tool. Ensure to download a firmware for your Build.

I dont like this Nougat, how can I downgrade or revert to Android 6 (Marshmallow)?

You’ll need to first download the Nougat firmware from the Hovatek Forum then follow the Mediatek firmware downgrade guide

  7. yes I do minimize the update application to use another application and its normal for the screen to sleep on its own or else the battery run downs before the download is complete

    1. Don’t interrupt the OTA update while it’s downloading. Also make sure you have enough data bundles or WiFi to download the OTA update before you begin downloading. Do not let the screen sleep while downloading and don’t use other applications. You can set your screen to stay awake for 30 minutes by going to settings then display.

      If you do this it should solve your problem. The most important thing is to make sure you have enough WiFi or data bundles before you begin downloading the OTA update.

  8. yes I do minimize the update application to use another application and its normal for the screen to sleep on its own or else the battery run downs before the download is complete,so please what’s the solution

  9. If I open any Application which is ever open in back end after latest upgrade infinix hot 4. I also restart but no effect. Plz Help

      1. Hi, i think the person is trying to say that when they close applications, it’s still open when you go to the open application tabs. Happens to me too. Thanks

  10. please hope the update didn’t have effect on the battery and the ram, because most especially it do affect the ram and the battery life. pls I need urgent reply

    1. You’ll have to install the update to find out. Although there’s not been much complaints about this, some bugs might surface on one person’s phone (same model same update) but not on another.

  11. Do I need to root my Infinix Hot 4 before I get the Android 7 Nougat update because system update functionality keeps repeating it’s up to date.

      1. I got the update notification already and I successfully downloaded the 1.5gb update which I’m about to install. Is there a location where this update downloaded to? Just in case I formatted or needed the upgrade in the future for the same phone so I’ll just install from that location (local). I’ll like to copy and save it somewhere else if it’s possible before installing. Thanks.

  12. Here are my questions.
    1. How do i know if my device is rooted? Caution says update may crash rooted devices… I use a hot 5.
    2. How should I go about the update? The notification has been on my phone for weeks but I’m scared I may damage the phone cos of the caution raised.

    1. 1. Install Root checker apk
      2. Take note of your Build Number and backup your firmware (these are incase the update is buggy or bricks your phone)

  13. here is my build number X557-H807BE-M-180306V211 it an hot 4 lite that i want to upgrade to 7.0 can it work? please i need your reply asaP

    1. This update is for Hot 4 not Hot 4 Lite. I’m not quite sure Lite got the Nougat update but you could check Settings > About > System updates
