  • Infinix Hot 2 Stock recovery (download HERE)
  • Android One Stock Rom (download HERE)
  • SP Flash Tool
  • VCom drivers


  • First you need to download Android 6.0 HERE. Your Android must be running on Android One Stock Rom (download HERE)
  • Once the file is downloaded, Rename it to zip
  • Place it in the root of your SD Card (i.e. it shouldn’t be in any folder)
  • Switch off the phone
  • Boot into Recovery mode by holding the 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 zip and select with the Power Button.

At this point, you need to wait until the installation process is complete so that the device would reboot. This will take some time to reboot. Be patient. When it boots, you will meet a whole new experience. It should work like a charm for you.


Once your device has re-started, you should see Android 6.0 Marshmallow running.

  5. Please i have been trying to flash my phone but anytime i hold the volume up and power button, my phone still boots normal .please help me

    • That means you’re not doing it right. You have to press both at the same time with the same intensity. Perhaps one of those two buttons is not working well (probably the volume button) which makes only the power button work.

        Its not VIRUS

        • If you are sure it’s not a virus, then it must be an application running in the background. Go to Settings >> Applications >>Running and try stopping the running applications one by one to find the application that’s popping ads, then uninstall it
