  2. Nice tutorial, good job you are doing here admin, I will give it a try once I get home, by the wat Infinix hot 4 x557 custom ROMs are now available here

  3. can we pliz use this tutorial with x 557 lite?

  4. Please step 9 needs the internet connection?
    I started the process offline but I did more than 30 minutes without loading. What can I do ?

    1. Using Sp flashtool does not require internet connection. Ensure you have installed usb vcom drivers to your pc and try process again. it works

    2. the phone is stuck on XOS Chameleon screem. how can I do ?

  5. Can I restore from the TWRP menu to return to normal mode on my phone or have I lost my phone like this?

    1. Did you make twrp backup? If so, restore it from there

    2. I did not backup, how do I? The loss of data does not tell me anything, can I recover my phone on?

    3. I can use the original recovery that is in the TWRP folder to do my restore?

    4. What did you do last that got the phone bricked?

    5. when i installing SuperUser.zip, i reboot my phone and he is stuck on XOS Chameleon screem. I did not do anything else, I'm waiting for your help

    6. Sorry about that. Goto recovery mode and wipe only data and cache then reboot. If it still persist, flash stock rom using sp flashtools.

      I've rooted many hot 4 foloowing given method without any issues

    7. I tried this but it did not work. I was forced to reprogram my phone and lost all my data. I will try to root my phone but taking care to make a backup this time. I do the backup on the memory card or on the phone? I have not tried yet so I do not know the possibilities there, Thank you for clarifying before I start.

    8. The guide works. Same files i've used is what's here. Follow guide step by step. Like i said, booting to twrp on hot 4 is trickish. If you flash twrp and it did not work, reflash twrp again, unplug phone from pc and boot straight to twrp. It works
