How To Upgrade And Root Infinix Note 2 X600 Running On Android 6 (Marshmallow)

It is no longer news that Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) has come to the Infinix Note 2 X600 Over The Air (OTA). This brief guide coined from Hovatek will explain how to correctly upgrade your Infinix X600 to Marshmallow and root it thereafter.


What should I know before upgrading my Infinix Note 2 X600 to Android 6?

It is important you know your phone’s build number. To know this, Navigate to Settings > About > Build number. Yours should be H532 A1, H533 A1 or H533 B1. It is important you flash firmware ONLY for your build. Flashing a firmware for another build to your phone will cause it to go totally dead and the only way to revive your phone would be to loosen it down to the MotherBoard then make a jumper which is a bit technical so to avoid having to go through this, stick to firmware for your Infinix X600’s build.
