How to Upgrade Infinix Hot Note Pro x551 & Infinix Hot x507 to Lollipop 5.1

I know a lot of Infinix hot note pro
and infinix hot x507 are tired of waiting for Lollipop update since its already
available for infinix hot note. However, I’m going to share with you in easy
steps how you can update your Hot note pro and Hot x507 to lollipop 5.1
The truth is you can actually get a
lollipop OTA update if you follow me carefully.

 Before you get the OTA update, you will need to first of all flash 0730 ROM on your device. All thanks to Infinixmobility forum and Vipelshaer for the provision of this Lollipop ROM.

==>You must be running on stock
recovery on Infinix hot x507 and Infinix Hot note pro (download stock recovery for infinix hot note pro here)
==>You must have a PC with SP
Flash tool installed.
==>First of all flash 0730 ROM version
to your device via SP Flash tool which is downloadable (for Infinix hot note pro only) here
Click on the file as seen in the img below for your download to begin

==>Download Vcom Port driver here
==>Download SP Flash tool here
==>Make sure your phone is charged
==>Back up your files and contact to
avoid stories that touch
==>For Infinix hot users only

  8. Hello Mr. Yomi, I need your help,

    I mistakenly select a Miui rom (that's not for my device) when trying to port rom to Comfort and when the phone prompted for a reboot, i clicked on it (not knowing i chose the wrong ROM).,

    Now my phone got bricked (Hard Bricked; as it's not Turning ON again)..

    i took it to an engineer and he said it will be flashed but he's not having the file for the hot note pro (but the one of hot note), that he had also contact his mates and they do not have that as well..

    Now i've downloaded the ONE YOU POSTED in this tut, i wanna ask, will the phone come up back when its been flashed with this rom using SP Flash tool..

    Also, is there any other way of reviving this..

    NOTE: the phone is still communicating with the PC and SP Flash tool as well/

    Looking forward to hear back from you pls..

    • Thanks for your response sir, YES my phone is INFINIX HOT NOTE PRO.

    • Thanks so much prof, it worked after choosing the "firmware upgrade".. Now my infinix hot note pro comes back to life and also enjoying the XUI..

  9. Thanks y'all for ur response when I opted to upgrade my device. So i Finally upgraded my device to lollipop 2 days back. Must say, I'm really enjoying the all new XUI on the infinix hot pro. Just feels like I got a new phone. One thing I noticed tho, the new update use up more ram space than the former. I bliv there should be a workaround as regards the excess ram usage. Please if u have any proven solution don't hesitate to share. Thanks

    • I can't see the image you sent. upload it to another platform. In your SP Flashtool did you choose firmware upgrade? also note that during the process, you are not suppose to in any way tamper with the process until it is complete.

      Waiting to hear from you

    • I follow the instruction strictly I choose firmware ugrade and I didn't touch it but after the upgrade the fone refuse to come up so while I was trying to revert it to stock rom I encounter dis error dat I posted above.

      [EMI] Enable DRAM Failed
      HINT: check your load matches to your target which is to be downloaded.
      how do I bring my fone back to life

    • Hello friend, sorry about what you are passing thru.
      If your PC can still detect your Infinix hot note pro, and its visible on SP Flashtool, I'll suggest you repeat the process again as listed above. Hope you had stock recovery installed on your device.

    • Yes I am stock recovery. Trying the process again is wat give me d error I posted above. I try to install back stock ROM it give same error but have download ed the above ROM should I try it with it

  13. Good morning Prof. Please I want to run stock recovery on my phone "Infinix hot note pro", before upgrading to lollipop. I have downloaded the stock recovery from the link provided to the root of my SD card, I have mobile uncle installed on my phone but my phone is not rooted. and I tried to click on recovery update from mobile uncle and then choose the stock recovery downloaded. But the information I got is " please root your android first". Pls what is the way forward because I don't want to root my phone.

  14. You don't need to worry yourself with recovery stuff and root problem when you are installing/flashing Rom via Sp Falsh Tool Because the Stock Rom will take care of that for you…
    just follow the instruction stated in the post and forget about the stock recovery part and upgrade your phone….
    happy flashing/upgrading your baby Phone
