How to Install Philz Touch Recovery on Infinix Hot Note


I’m a proud Infinix Hot Note user,i prefer the hot note pro though but due to its in-availability in stores made me buy the Infinix Hot Note X551 and i can boldly say i have no regret at all. For those who want to own the Infinix Hot Note/Hot Note Pro can buy it from Jumia or Konga at a cheaper rate and have it delivered to your doorstep anywhere in Nigeria.


Sometimes the need for Recovery installation is essential on Android, it has so many advantages over the stock recovery. I have talked about ClockWorkMod installation on the Infinix Hot Note before but i prefer Philz Touch Recovery due to its features over the normal ClockWorkMod Recovery. This Recovery is only meant for INFINIX HOT NOTE X551, Hot Note Pro users should not use nor flash this recovery image.
