  1. you are doing a great job … i have upgraded my infinixt to lollipop but to root is my problem now
    the link for the download is stopping at ‘MEGA’.
    I downloaded from another site but when i used splash toot to flash it pop up with ‘PMT changed for ROM it can be downloaded’
    please help me out on what to do

  2. bro thanks for your quick reply…i downloaded through MEGA as advised but i sill have same issue.
    I wouldnt kniw if there is another alternative.
    I really need to do the rooting…pls still help out

  3. I successful flash the file but when trying reboot to recovery mode, it fails! I only see red triangle sign… What should I do?

  4. Bro do i have to put the memory card in the phone before flashing cos i only put the card after it said ‘PMT changed for ROM’

    One more thing,do i have to extract the super SU using winrar before copying to the root of the memory card

  5. Another i stumbled across is philz recovery tools which i do not have installed on my phone before i upgraded it…am so disturbed i dont spoil my phone if am not careful cos am an amateur that only follow guidelines of people like u.
    please dont be cross amhaving to bother u as am confuse i dont know where to continue from

    • Dude, please read the tutorial and follow the picture guide. Its very explanatory stop doing it wrongly follow the guide above place the file on your SD CARD flash the recovery via sp flash tool, at completion unplug your phone, reboot to recovery by holding volume up and power, choose install zip from SD CARD select the supersu install and you are rooted. TGC

  6. Bro am still thankful even though i have tried severally with your steps and tools and all to no avail.

    Am suspecting maybe its because my infinix is hot note 2g ram 16g rom unlike the first one of 1g ram 16g rom.

    I will just have to be using it unrooted like that till there is another way to root without pc

    • Is because of version of sp flash tool you using, I came across such problems too, try version 5.1352.01, it’s works for me… Good luck

      • bro i downloaded the SP Flash Tool for Windows v.3.1352.01 (5.1352.01). as directed by you but i still face the issue of ‘pmt changed for rom it can be downloaded’.
        I was earlier happy it is downloading the recovery until the pmt message popped up again
        Am so disgusted cos on all this things have exhausted like 4gig in the whole process and it will just be a waste of time and effort.

        Am considering starting from kitkat again but i dont know how to go back there

        • Try turn off your anti virus software and any other applications running on tray, and create a new scatter file for the phone using mtk droid tools latest version, and remember the file here re for infinix hot note x551, not pro… Try look pro version android 5.1 recovery

  7. I guess why amhaving the PMT changed for ROM maybe because i didnt use your recovery image before i upgraded to lollipop.I used the one from yomitech cos the mega link u gave then wasnt going through.

    Please enlighten me cos am thinking of starting afresh again but i dont know if that means i have to downgrade to kitkat again which i dont know how to do.
    i wanted to install the philz recovery image to start afresh but it says i must root before i can use mobile uncle to recover the update.
    Please tell me what to do even if to start afresh and you should note i am presently in lollipop but not yet rooted.

    thanks in anticipation of a wonderful you

  8. I noticed an android logo with caution sign when i press up button and power but it hasnt affected my phone booting.
    I think the sign is the thing that is blocking me from flashing the recovery.
    When i tried creating a scatter file with droid tool,my phone is not detected…I also downloaded pdanet but still same issue

    • Ok… Maybe you should take it to a professional to help you with the problem… Which city are you? It was very easy for me and I help three people with their devices with out no problem

    • Mostical, maybe you’re yet to install the Vcom drivers better referred to as MTK PRELOADER Drivers. Please install them

      • Vcom drivers can’t cause it. Mr. Gt is right use MTK droid tool to create a new scatter file then use the recovery you found here, it should work. Old search google on how to make scatter file via mtk droid tool. I would have posted a link but I don’t know if mr. Ayo allows that. Just make sure u follow all guides correctly.

  9. bro am in abeokuta…

    i just ensured usb debugging on the phone and now the droid tool has detected my phone but i dont know which way to go again but i saw an option to scatter file so am still in google trying to know wht next to do.
    bro i really appreciate ur concern and help

  10. i have installed the preloader devices when i upgraded to lollipop…my concern is on the scatter file that may not be consistent with my rom which i think its causing the pop up
    boss,i clicked on root on the droid tool but said am not rooted so i dont know if i should click on scatter file.
    please guide me boss

    • It’s not hard it’s same method u used for upgrading… Click the scatter file, it will load the recovery itself, click download, plug in your device. You’re making me write the tutorial again in the comment box. Please read and understand and stop trying things you think it’s right. Follow the instructions on the blog. Thanks.

      • If the scatter file was able to upgrade your phone it should also work with flashing of recovery img, used new USB cable and change the port… try on a different laptop…

  11. Hello,
    I use this method, and my phone is dead. When I connect it to the computer I hear a sound. But it does not detect it and the phone will not turn on.
    Infinix X551

    • JET, am so sorry for your lose. Please do you use HOT NOTE PRO?(2GB RAM/32GB ROM)
      Please try this FIX —>Just loose it open(if you can, note:this voids the warranty) and disconnect the flex of the battery and reconnect and flash the right rom again and ur phone should be up and running… if you can’t do above, simply do not charge ur phone and leave it to drain for days depending 6on the available battery it had before it died…. from 2-7days and re-flash the stock and appopraite rom

  12. ayoproxy thanks to your compation, I use HOT NOTE (1GB RAM/16GB ROM)
