How to Flash it

==>Power off your phone
==>Hold Volume Up + Power Button
==>Release power button and tap volume up once you see the
“Infinix” Logo
==>It will show you a dead Android robot with a red sign
==>Press Volume Up or Volume down (device dependent) to get into the stock
recovery
==>Scroll down with Volume button to “Apply Update from SD Card”
==>Scroll down to the update.zip and select with the Power Button.


Install, and once installation is done, reboot your system and wait for system
to start.
Once your system reboot, you should now
see a re-branded new device running on Android 6.0. So if you’ve been having problem with the stock rom, or infinix 5.1 XUI, just upgrade it to 6.0 and you are good to go.

    • You can flash it with SP Flashtool and u can also install it directly via ur SD card. Hence the need for vcom drivers is for those who will need to flash d stock rom back to dir device.

    • Stock rom is follow com rom. The rom that came with ur fone while this one here is just a upgrade.

      But forget that word rebranded cos it just use of words

  1. I followed all the steps listed above. But i didn't flash any previous stock rom because i never installed a stock rom before. Whenever I try entering the recovery mode it always starts the phone

    • Is ur fone rooted? Or has been rooted before? Id youv you've done on of the above before, then you'll definitely get that error. In which you still need to flash that stock rom back

  2. Please while trying to update i removed my battery thinking it was going to format d phone… The thing ended up with error and since then the phone has refuse to come up, it just keeps booting with different bubble dancing on the screen .
