Recently, Tecno released an update for its flagship (Tecno Camon C8) thereby making it possible to upgrade the Tecno Camon C8 to latest Android Marshmallow 6.0 firmware. Obviously, quite a number of C8 users have been having problems upgrading their phones, even to the HIOS for Tecno C8 while others where able to go through with the newly released update.
To make upgrading easier, Team Hovatek has made a ROM Dump of a Tecno C8 running on Marshmallow, thereby, making the C8 Marshmallow update via SP Flash tool compatible just as they did for the Infinix Hot 2 X510 March Marshmallow update recently.
NOTE: This is not an official firmware from Tecno. Team Hovatek dumped the firmware of its copy of the Tecno C8 which had been successfully upgraded to Marshmallow (Android 6.0) using the Sp Flashtools guide below.
