How to Downgrade Infinix Hot 2 X510 to Android Lollipop 5.1 or Android One 5.0

I’m going to make this a little bit easier for those who
have successfully upgraded their Infinix hot 2 X510 to Android 6.0 but want to
downgrade it back to Android 5.0 or Lollipop 5.1 due to some of the bug on the Android 6.0. If
you can no longer wait for infinix to release bug fixes for this latest Android
6.0, then you can go ahead and downgrade it back to Android 5.1 or 5.0 stock

Before you begin, please back up your files and document to
avoid stories that touch.
SP Flash Tool (download here)
VComm Drivers (download here)
Infinix Hot 2 Stock Rom (download here) or Android 5.1 lollipop Rom (download here)
Navigate to the SP flash tool folder
Run the SP flash tool.exe as admin
Click on scatter loading. Navigate to the infinix hot2 rom folder and select
the ” MT6580_Android_scatter.txt “
4.At the left
hand side just below the ‘scatter loading’ panel click on ‘download now’ then
change it to ‘firmware upgrade’
5. Switch off
your Phone (make sure it has about 90% charge) and connect it to your PC using
usb cord
6. A progress bar should start running. The phone will be downgraded on
booting-Make sure you don’t tamper with usb at this point.

The final result after about 5-10 min should be like this if all went well
7. After that
confirmation close flash tool. Disconnect phone and switch it on. It will take
some minutes before the setup is complete.

Finally, go to Settings >> About to confirm that your Infinix Hot 2
is now running on Android 5.0 or 5.1 depending on the Rom you

  3. Mr YomiProf, i was not able to create a scatter file …. i tried using MTK Droid Tools but my IMEI aint showing….. It says

    "In system already available: Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.32
    —>>> Connect to device <<<—
    — ERROR : — TotalBytesPerChunk Not Found. Set default Page/Spare=2048/64 !!!
    — Unknown ROM structure, backup NOT possible!
    ATTENTION! File /system/recovery-from-boot.p which restore factory recovery in case of phone switching on in a normal mode Is Found! "

    • Hello Sam,
      You are not suppose to create anything… Your task is to download the rom of your choice from the above link, unrar it and you'll see the scatter file inside. Except if you want to create your own separate scatter file.

  11. Hello Mr Yomi. good work U are doing, however I have some issues completing the process for downgrading my hot2. This are the error messages I get;


    1. Please check if the DA path is correct.
    2. Please check if all the ROM files exist
    3. Please check if the scatter file description is sync with the exists ROM files

    I also downloaded the other stock ROM and I get this during the stage of final "firmware upgrade" ….. Please kindly look into this ASAP as my phone is completely dead and doesn't come on again but it responds to the download process of "firmware upgrade"

    thanks in advance
