  1. I am a regular reader (but not a commentator) on your blog Yomi, but I couldn't help myself. Infinix has decided to kill both Innjoo and techno with this move. If they stay steady rolling out updates, they will corner the Nigerian "Geekmarket". How are you doing bruv? More grease to your elbows

    • @Sharrpguy, I doubt that techno will allow infinix just come from no where to upstart it. Besides how many Nigerians are even bothered by OTAs and lollipop? All they want is a phone to use.

  2. Can one use an external download manager for mega cos the inbuilt manager in the mega app doesn't support resuming downloads….almost downloaded the stuff then a call came in and it started afresh

  3. Prof Yomi.. I have downloaded it and when I was flashing it, it keeps telling me (can't open the zip file. (bad)..
    What do I do??

    • You don't need any extra tutorial on how to download from Mega, its as simple as abc… by the way why did you decided to use free idm trial when you can download IDM Patch and use it free for life.

  8. I flashed the new lollipop rom, then I tried an ota update on the phone,after downloading it I clicked install but it says unfortunately system update has stopped, please what do I do?

    • I still don't understand you… If you flashed this latest lollipop rom for infinix hot note, you shouldn't even see or flashed an OTA update again… My question is, what Android version are you running now? or what is the state of your device.

    • Power off your phone and then press power button + volume up button to see if it will boot into recovery… if it does, you'll know if it install or not cos you'll see advance features

  9. Prof do u have any other link I can use to download the file other than MEGA… pls I have tried my best to use IDM but not downloading..

    • HeLlo,
      To make it easier for you, go to that mega file upload, you'll see three option dir, to download with mega Downloader, or to d cloud or to download with your own browser.

      Just choose download with your own browser and your download will begin

    • Hello friend, sorry about what just happened to your device. It's either your obstruct the process of during the upgrade or your USB got disconnected during the upgrade. This what normally happened if the upgrade process isn't complete or obstructed.

      You need to take it to CarlCare centre closest to you and it will be fix.
