  1. i updated my infinix hot 4 pro to 7.0 and it malfunctioning. I cant login to skype, i can log into outlook again and the finger print security is lagging. Not good as the phone is no longer smooth, It require more update for perfection.

    • Oh snap! Sorry to hear you going through that and so sorry for late reply. I would love know did you follow the steps on this blog post to upgrade your Infinix Device?

    • The Tcard Update will help you update the Nougat Rom Version. Actually, You Can now upgrade your device to Android N.0 (Nougat) Via OTA, It is on Your Phone. < System Update> Thanks

  2. CharpMan I need you help fast fast as in quickly.. please, my infinix hot 4 pro[when still running on version 6.0, stopped turning on hotspot and wifi] the, I thought flashing it would solve the problem. I came here now and downloaded the version 7.0 ROM. and now, I still encounter the same problem….. I still can’t on hotspot and wifi, please what else can I do to resolve this issue?

    • Sorry Lawal for the late reply to your comment, gat a little issue with notifications. I will suggest you should reset your phone (YOU CAN DO THAT BY PRESSING AND HOLDING DOWN THE POWER BUTTON FOR 10secs) if it doesn’t work You should reflash the device with updated ROM.

      • thanks, but I did all that.. I upgrades to version 7 not because I like it. I was force to do so because I couldn’t find any other way to do it.. I think the problem is from the hardware not software stuff, I also took it to an engineer; he said it cant be fix, then I gave up and don’t want to stress on it anymore. thanks for your concern.
