Marshmallow Update Is Now Available For Infinix Hot 2; See How To Upgrade To Android 6.0

I said it at the ending of last year when Infinix Hot 2 was launched that the phone will be getting latest Android 6.0 (marshmallow) update in early this year and just over the weekend, it happened as many Infinix Hot 2 users started receiving OTA updates on their phone and it is still been rolled out for others.
However, the issue is how to safely do this update especially for those that can't wait until the update comes to their phone.

It is recommended to go back to the stock ROM that your Infinix Hot 2 came with before carrying out Android 6 update. Some people are currently running a custom ROM on the phone and it will cause crashes and even bricking if you don't port back to the original stock ROM

If your Infinix Hot 2 is rooted, it is highly recommended to unroot it before upgrading to marshmallow to avoid stories that makes heart bleed.

You must backup your files, contact and important apps because this flashing process will restructure your device thereby clearing all your important applications and files so that is why it is highly recommended

1. Your infinix device must be running on Android One (5.1) Stock Rom. download android one stock ROM for infinix Hot 2 here
2. You will need Infinix hot 2 Stock recovery. Download the recovery here
3. Also you will need to download VCom drivers. Get VCom drivers here
4. Finally the tool for flashing it. We will use the ever reliable SP Flash tool. Download it here
In case you are new to custom or stock ROM flashing, see my article on how to flash stock ROM with sp flash tool on PC
Now that you have successfully flashed the stock ROM of your Infinix Hot 2, it is now time to upgrade to Android latest OS, Android 6.0 Marshmallow on your Infinix device.

There is a link to download the OTA update for Android marshmallow. Download android marshmallow here. The size is 624.9mb

1. First of all, just rename the downloaded Android M zip file, to
2. Place the zip file at the root of your SD Card. Please don't put it or save it on any folder. Leave it as standalone file on your SD card root.
3. Switch off your Infinix Hot 2 phone
4. Boot into recovery mode by holding volume up + power button
5. Now remove your hand from the  power button and tap volume up immediately you see the "Infinix" Logo on the screen
6. At this stage you will see a red colored dead Android logo. Don't be scared. Carry on....
7. Now Press Volume Up or Volume down depending on your phone, to get into the stock recovery mode
8. In this mode, you cannot use hand gestures or touch. To navigate around, use the vol+ and vol- keys and the use power button to Select "Apply Update from SD Card"
9. Now scroll down to the and click it with your phone Power Button.
Finally, install the zip file, and after installing, restart your Infinix Hot 2 and wait as it reboots.
