download philz recovery @ https://hovatek.com/redirect.php?link=ht...d/6c31cce0

if you wish to downgrade back to kitkat,
download stock rom @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-533.html
then flash using sp flash tools @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-159.html

And your sure yours is the 1gb ram and 16GB rom?

I had the similar problem, having two identical x551 running the same lolipop rom but one of them couldn't boot in any custom recovery, even after formatting all flash before downloading the rom only one worked, and the other one is not a clone.
what i can advise is to read back a similar phone having twrp or philztouch and flash the whole rom and see if it works.
if you're just after root just use the latest kingroot.

@mattybaz of course the storage details show 16gb and 1gb ram and its also boldly written at the battery side of the phone. @peter.. I have performed readback of two similar phones running kitkat using sp flash tool but when i flash the rom to my phone it ended up bricking it..i revived it back by flashing a lollipop stock rom.!!!! My question is this, are there many variants of the 16gb+1gb infinix? Cos ds is damn confusing and annoying.. A friend of mine having the same infinix x551 16gb+1gb flashed a custom recovery and its working fine then why cant my own work since its the same phone.. Thats why i prefer tecno wen it comes to this variant stuffs.. One recovery can b flashed to the same tecno phones..this phone don stress me die

Yes, there are multiple variants of the X551, even for the 1+16.
Tecno is just as guilty

I think so, the bootloader might not allow you to downgrade from lolipop to kikat
