The Infinix Hot 2 X510 February Marshmallow OTA update (SP flash tool format) is now available

Infinix hot 2 x510 android 6 marshmallow february build ota update

A few days ago, Team Hovatek dropped the ROMDump (SP flash tool format) for the Infinix Hot 2 Android 6 Marshmallow (January 1, 2016) X510-D5110-M-Androidone-20160107 build. The February 1, 2016 build is now available (to upgrade OTA, navigate to Settings > About > System updates) and we have also created a ROMDump for it.

Note: This is not an official firmware from Infinix. Team Hovatek dumped the firmware of our copy of the Infinix Hot 2 X510 which had been successfully upgraded to Marshmallow (Android 6.0) OTA.

How to upgrade Infinix Hot 2 to the Android 6 Marshmallow (1, February 2016) X510-D5110-M-Androidone-20160115 build using SP flash tool

Will I be able to install future OTA updates after flashing this ROMDump?

Yes, you will without a problem. The ROMDump is not rooted and runs on stock recovery

Hovatek….just a button away!

  1. Help, after I upgraded via OTA. My contacts name do not appear anymore and d power button responds late when screen timeouts

    1. The power button lag after sleep is a bug we noticed in the January Marshmallow build. Have you upgraded to the February build?

          1. Sir, I have downloaded the ROMDump. Do I click on download only or firmware upgrade on SP flashtool? Cos, i am already using OTA update of january 6.0.

          2. Sir, I did not receive the OTA update, even the one i am using now i download it and upgrade via recovery mode. Should I go ahead and do the flashing, I am having infinix flashtool, can i use it, cos it dose not have the option of firmware upgrade on it.

          3. Sir I upgraded to 6.0, but cannot change the imei despite mtk engineering mode. It shows everything, but no place to input imei.

  2. I just downloaded the android 6.0 from you and was wondering if it could work on both ram and if I was flashing if it should be download+firmware update and the boxes to tick. Thank you.

  3. If upgrading from lollipop can I just flash this update directly or do I have to flash the first Marshmallow you posted first

  4. My phone already downloaded the ota update but I want to flash the stock lollipop ROM because my phone is rooted and I don’t have much data to re download the ota update so I want to copy it to my pc so that I can flash it after I have flashed the lollipop ROM. So can you direct me to the folder where I can find the marshmallow ota update file on my phone.

    1. Can i see a screenshot of the system update screen.
      By the way, that looks like the february update which we already created an sp flash tool format for

  5. Hello, after flashing the ROMDump with SP flashtool, my phone boots up completely but is stuck at a blank screen and a small scrolling message at the top saying I should input Privacy protection password to unlock. I have never set privacy protection password before. Even so, tapping on the screen does absolutely nothing and I can only use the emergency call function.

    I then tried to install the January build with the stock recovery only to get the same problem as above. Please what could be the cause of this?
    Note that I have successfully flashed marshmallow on the phone on previous occasions but had to revert to lollipop for some reasons. Please help.

      1. That link takes me to a thread if Tecno stock ROM downloads. How does that help me?.

        Found the right thread anyway. After flashing the stock ROM, can I reflash this marshmallow romdump?

  6. Its causing NVRAM WARNING: Err = 0x10 on the wifi, what can I do to remove that, without rooting the phone if possible

  7. @Hovatek & hot 2 users who are actually

    having an hectic time booting into recovery especially with the marshmallow ROM.

    I’m telling u guys its very possible booting your marshmallow hot 2(February build) into recovery without ADB.

    As usual with button combo power + vol+

    Turn off your phone,hold the vol+ & power button simultaneously,once you see the infinix logo release the power button & tap on the vol+ button 3,4 or 5 times very very fast. I mean VERY VERY fast.

    Bingo you’re on recovery.

    I’m hoping it works for all because that’s what I’m using.

    NB:before complaining make sure your ROM was downloaded from the hovatek link pasted above.

  8. Thanks for the update but is there any way to fix the lag in the power button coz its really annoying and I thought the February build would fix the bug in power button

  9. I really appreciate hovatec help..

      1. Yes u r right sir, one more tin…am rooted and I saw and update on my phone pls how can I do d update wit out crashing in…infinix hot 2 marshmallow(patch level Feb )

  12. Good morning sir,
    I recently installed the March OTA security update on my infinix hot 2 (x510) and virtually all observed bugs seemed to have disappeared. Now, I have been trying to get MTK Droid tools to recognize my phone so I can ROM Dump but without success. Other phones have been recognised including my HTC One X. Is there any fix to this? Pardon me if I posted on th e wrong forum.

      1. Is there any alternative or MTK Droid tools version that work with the X510? I have tried v2.50, v2.51, v2.52. Can I ask you how you created your February ROMDump?

          1. Thanks for your prompt response. I’m well aware of the guide above. The problem is that it requires the use of MTK Droid tools to create scatter file as first step. If I can’t create scatter file it will be pointless trying to read back with SP flash tool. Any alternative method to creating scatter file? I’m just wondering how you created your own X510 Dump. Sorry for bothering you though.

          2. You’ll normally manually create a scatter file but you could use the scatter file from the CWM recovery we ported for the X510

  13. Sorry to bother you again. How do I manually create the scatter file? Using CWM means I have to be rooted. I didn’t intend dumping rooted ROM. Thanks for your help.

    1. We’ve not yet dropped a guide on manual scatter file creation.
      I didn’t ask you to use the cwm recovery image. I asked you to use the scatter file in the zip

  14. After I downloaded the and upgrade to marshmallow, my device is saying I should sign in my account with Google but after I sign in it saying my account doest not recognized pls I need help Asap
