      Hi Jaye,

    Nosa, are you 100% certain that this update isn’t just like the previous system update Hot 2 got late last year? And i checked Infinix Mobility Website and they don’t have this Android Marshmallow update there. So where on earth did u get this ROM from?? Well, I’m about to download and test now, i hope i don’t end up wasting megabytes.

      Hi Stiiz,

      Let me know how far you went.. Thanks and enjoy the rest of the day.

        Bro, i take back my words! This Android M update is 100% legit! I’m running it right now as we speak, took me a while to figure out why my device couldn’t boot into recovery mode, but i got that fixed and the update worked smoothly. Thank You TechRez! 👏👏👏🙌

          Hello Stiiz,

          Lol, I am glad the process worked for you. Hope to see you around some other time.

          P.S What did you do to boot into recovery mode? Just in case someone else is experiencing the problem…

      Please did you download the Google Stock rom first before flashing?

    Mine says system is up to date …why???

    1. 3.1

      Nosagie Nosa-Ero

      Hi Rex,

      If you can’t do the manually update, you will have to wait for the automatic update to get to your device. They are been rolled out in batches, it will eventually get to your turn.

      Best Regards

    Any suggestions on how to backup data before/while upgrading? Meanwhile, I’m still waiting for the update on my Hot2.

    1. 4.1

      Stiiz

      No need to backup anything, Juci. I just did mine this afternoon and i didn’t need to backup. Just make sure you click “apply update” in the boot recovery menu.

    In case anyone is trying to boot into recovery mode and it keeps bouncing back and/or shows “No Command”, just visit this site —-> http://www.amodindo.tk/2015/11/tutorial-enable-recovery-button-infinix.html?m=1
    There you wud see how to flash, using Infinix Flash Tool, a backdoor boot file unto your Infinix Hot 2 that wud allow you to boot into Recovery mode. The initial Android One ROM from Infinix had a bug/restriction from Google that restricts users from entering recovery mode. Hope this helps!
    P.S. Android Marshmallow rocks! 🙌

      Hello, I followed your instruction but I am seeing a lying android icon with red exclamation

      1. 5.2.1

        Stiiz

        Try pressing down & holding the volume up button + power button, then release after a short time, this will send u to the recovery menu.
        Or, once you see the Android icon & exclamation, just tap power button alone

      Comment: am having problems with mine nd I don’t hv a PC at hand,do u tink Carlcare will offer d update or can I flash via sp flash tool,I already hv d 637mb update of last month

      1. 5.3.1

        Stiiz

        Use the sp tools to flash urself, no need to revert to default imei cause flashing wud install a fresh ROM. Make sure you download the “enable boot recovery mode” flash files thru the link i dropped previously.

    It’s cool. I just flashed mine manually and I’m rocking the Marshmallow right now. There’s been a lot of change. There are 2G/3G, 3G only and 2G only network mode now, unlike the previous lollipop network mode that restricts you to 2G/3G and 3G mode. The set back I’m having now is that you can’t change your IMEI number unless you root the phone, unlike the lollipop rom which you can easily change its IMEI without rooting.
    Thanks for the update alert…

      Heloo. I thought I was the only one. My phone has also become more sluggish. It takes longer to unlock, touch is less responsive, my contacts no longer desplay names in calling and texting, plus difficulty in hanging up phone calls. Actually I would say its slower ……I am also looking for a solution!!!
