How To Downgrade Infinix Note 4 To Android 7 Nougat

Some persons who have already upgraded their Infinix Note 4 to Android 8.1 Oreo recently are complaining about bugs such as slow battery charging, battery draining fast among others. The most painful is the X-charge which is not working properly.

So if you think you can't cope with these bugs from the Note 4 Oreo update, or you can't wait for Infinix to push for another update that will probably fix it, then you should consider downgrading to the previous version which is Android 7.0 Nougat.

Recall in my previous article on ways to upgrade to Android 8, I recommended that you should have a backup of your previous firmware in case you decide to revert back.

However, those of you that don't still have the backup should use the stock ROM Firmware provider here on this post for that purpose.

NOTE: You have to download the Infinix Note 4 stock rom based on your phone built number before you upgraded otherwise you may brick your phone.

Things You Will Need:

Infinix Note 4 Stock Rom:
  • (Africa) X572-H5312AD-N-170719V111 – download here
