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.

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

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

Reply

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

Sir, cant we do the update without using PC, eg via recovery mode, updating from SD

Reply
Hovatek

Yes you can if you have the OTA zip

Reply
Mahmud

Sir, the ROMDump, you posted is it not a OTA zip?

Reply
Hovatek

No it’s not. It’s to be flashed using SP flash tool

Reply
Mahmud

So can you help us with the OTA zip? Please

Hovatek

We’ll list it once we get access to it

Mahmud

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.

Hovatek

Use firmware upgrade.
You should’ve received the OTA under Settings > About > System updates

Mahmud

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.

Hovatek

You may use Infinix flash tool

Mahmud

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

Hovatek

Use chamelephon apk

Namy

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.

Reply
Hovatek

1. It works on both 1 and 2 GB RAM version
2. Use Firmware update

Reply
Namy

Should I tick everything?

Reply
Hovatek

Firmware upgrade automatically ticks everything

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

Reply
Hovatek

You can flash this directly.
The first one was a complete January build. This is a complete February build

Keemie

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.

Reply
Hovatek

Usually in the /cache folder. Install a root browser to access this

Reply
Keemie

I checked the cache folder but i couldnt find it.

Reply
Hovatek

I meant /system/cache

I checked I couldn’t find it

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

Please when flashing ROMDump, is step 6 really necessary ?

Reply
Hovatek

What is step 6?

Reply
Francis

Step 6 is the format option

Reply
Hovatek

Oh,in the sp flash tool guide. No, you do not have to format

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.

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?

Reply
Hovatek

Sorry, that was an error.
Yes, you may flash it

@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.

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.

Reply
Hovatek

This is mostly due to an adb clash (https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-10111.html)
Even if you resolve that, MTK droidtools v2.5.3 doesn’t support your phone’s chipset for a backup

Reply
Neo

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?

Reply
Neo

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.

Hovatek

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

Neo

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.

Reply
Hovatek

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
