If you are an android user who loves experimenting and trying out new things on an android phone, especially mtk android phones like infinix, tecno, innjoo and others, I would strongly advice that you install cwm recovery on your android phone.

Why? Because it helps in fixing your phone easily in case it gets bricked. My Infinix hot note x551 android phone is currently in COMA as a result of hard-bricking. I had to use a PC since I didn’t have cwm recovery installed.

In the process of using a PC, there was an interruption and the phone went into COMA. Will give a detailed guide on how I fixed it when it revives.

As earlier stated, for every mtk android phone user, be it infinix, tecno, innjoo, elephone etc, its highly advised you install cwm recovery if you love experimenting with your phone in terms of rooting, changing fonts, installing different kind of apps and sorts.

  7. Uhmm, Samuel, it is possible that the problem Ace is having is ROM related. @Ace, have you tried re-flashimg your stock ROM?

  8. Nice but i rooted a phone before and suddenly ma chargin point stoped workin at first i thought it was d ba3 and charging point so i changed both all to no avail ah hope it wont happen to d hot note pro if i root it??{lol 1st to comment}

    • Ace, rooting a phone has got nothing to do with the charging port. Maybe there was something else responsible for the ordeal with that device. Rooting the infinix hot note won’t give you any such issues.
