What to do before installing the Infinix Hot 4 (X557) official Nougat OTA update
Some of those who upgraded to Nougat using Tcard or SP Flash tool on the Beta build complained of bugs. Hopefully, all that is fixed since its out of Beta but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take some precautions:
- Take note of your phone’s current Build Number
- Ensure your battery is charged above 50%
- If your Infinix Hot 4 is rooted then ensure to unroot your Android phone before installing any OTA update
- I strongly recommend you dump your phone’s firmware in scatter format using Miracle Box so you have something to revert to incase you brick your Hot 4 or run into bugs / problems in this Nougat update
- Revert to stock recovery if you have flashed a custom recovery like TWRP, CWM, Philz etc
