How To Upgrade Infinix Hot 2 To Official Marshmallow 6.0
NOTE: THIS IS NOT FOR INFINIX HOT 2 USERS ON INFINIX'S XUI. THIS UPDATE IS ONLY FOR INFINIX HOT 2 RUNNING THE ANDROID ONE ROM.
- Must be on a NON ROOTED ROM. If you attempt installation on a rooted Infinix Hot 2, you will brick your device
- Must have STOCK Recovery, NOT custom revovery.
If you've previously rooted your device and also installed custom recovery, you need to download Infinix Hot 2 Android One stock rom and flash using sp flashtools so as to permanently wipe root and custom recovery, meaning it will revert your device back to the way it was when you purchased. After that, you can proceed to download OTA update and install using below steps.

That's it, your device should be up and running the officially released Android Os Marshmallow 6.0
UPDATE: I have been receiving mails from most users of Infinix Hot 2 x510 running Android One Os about not being able to boot to stock recovery mode. I think Infinix naturally disabled booting to stock recovery mode on some Hot 2 x510. If you are unable to boot to stock recovery, do the following to enable your stock recovery mode:
- Download and Extract Infinix Flash Tool, Recovery Enabler (place folders in your desired location, preferably your pc desktop). Download Infinix Flash Tools here and Recovery Enabler here.
- Open Infinix Flash Tool, click on browse and navigate to folder containing Recovery Enabler, select "MT6580_Android_Scatter file" and click start.
- Connect your phone to your PC (switched off completely)
- After process has complete, Reboot after flashing and proceed to update.
NOTE: If you are rooted and also running Android XUI on your Hot 2, just download Infinix Hot 2 Android One stock rom and flash using sp flashtools and proceed to download OTA update and install afterward.
