    • You don't need to go to recovery mode… Inshort if you have internet connection on the device, it will download the update without your notice, the only pop up you'll see is the the one on the image above. After the update, it will update 87 apps on your device…

      so what are you doing in recovery mode?

    • Hello Jide, just make sure your internet is turn on… so long the update is downloaded, it will do the rest job for you. The only thing you'll be ask to do is to restart or install the update. Click on install and in less than a minute, the update will be installed on your device and restart your device.

    • Do you mean to say can you flash lollipop update rom for infinix hot x507 with custom recovery? No. To flash lollipop update, you must be running on stock recovery. The second answer too is No. You must be ruuning on stock recovery to flash lollipop update whether rooted or unrooted.

  1. Prof, i have the phone it's not rooted

    can anything go wrong during this update that can brick the phone even though my phone is more or less stock phone without any tweaking on it?

  2. Prof abeg make you help now,my Infinix hot 2fail to installed after av downloaded the software soft update its always displaying Android logo error ,I av remove my mtn line because you said that the will should download it with fast networkand i use 3G etisalat network to download, it still fail to install the update
    Can I boot it into recovery?

    • Yes you can boot it into recovery by Holding down the Power key and select Power off.

      Press and hold the Power key and the Volume down key. You should see the Android mascot on his back, a bunch of information about your device, and Start at the top right of the screen.
      To navigate through the menu options you use the Volume up and Volume down keys. The Power key is used to make a selection.

      Press Volume down twice and you should see Recovery mode in red up at the top right, press the Power key to select it.
      The white Google logo will pop up followed by the Android mascot on his back again with the words No command underneath.
      Press and hold the Power key and the Volume up key for around three seconds and then let go of the Volume up key, but keep pressing Power.
      You should see the Android system recovery options pop up at the top of the screen.

      But the one I updated this morning, I was connected thru a WiFi and it does everytn in less than two minute.

  3. that's also what I'm trying to tell him… after the update has been downloaded, it will bring a notification to ask me to install it, after which it brings me to a screen where I choose restart and install, it switches off, goes into recovery mode "by itself" to install the update and writes error…. my phone didn't brick though…

    • I'm surprise though but when I updated mine in less than few minutes, I was connected to a WiFi and after the updated, all apps were updated automatically.

      I'll suggest if you have another device at your disposal, turn on its hotspot, and connect ur hot2 to its network then try to install the update.

  4. Am having the same issue here….after downloading the update successfully…. Installation keep saying "Error" and am unrooted…any suggestion please

  5. Yomi do have to revert the imei number to stock before in installing system update….. I wanna know if that's the reason mine is showing me error

  8. Hello Everyone facing that error messages while installing your update, here is the fix.
    I want to believe that majority of those facing that error update must have rooted their device as well alot of modification has might have been done.

    Here is the Fix
    ==>Go to infinix support forum here
    and download your stock rom back..
    ==>Install it with SP Flashtool if you are using a pc or you follow the guide on their site for Mobile device installation via SD card
    ==>The moment you install and reboot your device, you will see the OTA update again but this time, the size will be 9.3MB, download and run your software installation.

    Thats all… please if you are still confuse, kindly comment under this post
