Tecno Gone Wrong – Have You Receive Any Lollipop 5.0 Update Yet on Your Tecno SmartPhone?

This is just a rant I saw on Nairaland and I thought it wise
to share it here let me hear from all Tecno users who has in one way or the
other use Tecno phone before… Have in anyway or the other receive OTA update
According to the pained Nairalander, “Have been a fan of tecno
since their birth until i discovered that tecno is a scam yes i said it tecno
is a scam.

…to make the story short i bought a tecno flagship phone the almighty phantom z
last year and believe me the phone is superb with a good display but
considering the price i bought it 59k it supposed to worth it. fast forward to
2015 the phone still remains a flagship tecno phone because no other tecno
beats it’s spec but how can such a flagship phone still runs kitkat even when
lollipop is now rampant on Chinese brands like infinix gionee etc. 

the amount i bought the phone i think I deserve a lollipop update instead of
making customers money valuable to them they are busy producing scrap in the
name of phone while their media paid hypers will hype the Useless scrap to the
extent of comparing c8 to iPhone (abomination)
well in the end i have to sell my over priced phantom z which i bought 59k not
less than 1 year as low as 29k and right now am a proud user of infinix hot
note pro updated from 4.4 to 5.1 (that’s value of money)

Please don’t tell me that tecno is cheap thus update are not necessary because
infinix gionee are also more cheaper but are churning out updates for their
customers that’s what I call value of money.

If you want to buy a phone with sure ota update go for gionee (best when it comes to Ota)
infinix(happy they kept their promise)”

Those of your who has received OTA Lollipop update before
aside of installing Custom Rom (Not everyone is techy you know), comment below
lets know the kind of Tecno device you are using.

    • Hello Kazeem Azeez,
      I'm not in particular possession Tecno Camon C8 so I haven't test the method I got from XDA Forum on Camon C8 but it will work on your device if you follow it carefully…

      This process has been tested on other 5.1 devices but it might soft brick your phone and, as of today, there is no FlashTool flashable rom that will recover a device from such brick state.

      HoW can I Go abouT it?

      ==>Anyway, if you feel brave enough, download this zip
      ==>and copy it to your MicroSD card.
      ==>Power off the device and turn it on keeping VOL+ and Power until you see some tiny text.
      ==>Select the first option (Recovery mode), use VOL+ to navigate and VOL- to confirm.
      ==>Once booted to stock recovery select "apply update from sdcard" using VOL+/- to navigate and POWER to confirm, and select the zip file you copied to the MicroSD.
      ==>After the flash has completed you will be back to recovery's main screen and just select "reboot system now".

      PS: this zip file should work with any MT67** device running a stock Mediatek recovery

      PPS: DO NOT apply any incremental ota update after flashing the root zip, flash ONLY flash tool roms when and if they will be available

  1. Tecno is really a lot of crabs & I hated the fact that I can't upgrade my tecno pad p9 to even KitKat. I went to their service centre @ opebi for the upgrade only to be told that it can't be upgraded. They should just pack out of the Nigerian space.
