  1. Yomi ..my infinix hot x 507 bricked…so I downloaded a custom Rom for it and tried to flash it using recovery mode….but it said "installation aborted" What should I do plssssss

  2. Use flash tool to flash it, it will fix..

    Oga yomi I greet thee, how work? Boss if I root with dis method how can I unroot it if I want to run anoda update?

    • its very easy to unroot… its either you use this method

      ==>Launch SuperSU app, go to Settings, and tap on ‘Full unroot’.
      It will confirm you just tap continue. After successful, Unroot superuser
      will close automatically
      Restart your device
      Uninstall SuperSU and you are fully unrooted.

      Or this
      ==>Install ES File Explorer (download from playstore)
      Open the app and tap the menu button
      Now tap on ‘Tools’ and select ‘Root Explorer’ to turn it on
      Superuser will ask you to grant privilege or root privileges to the app. Allow it.
      Now go back to the main screen of the app and select ‘/’ in the top corner of the screen.
      ==>Go to system -> bin. Find the busybox and su file and delete them. If you can’t find any of them, just skip to the next step.
      ==>Now go back to the system folder again and open ‘app’ folder and then delete the supeuser.apk file located in the folder. That’s all.
