#1
(This post was last modified: 06-13-2017, 07:28 PM by hovatek. )

The Infinix Hot S (X521) is an MT6753 powered phone running on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). One-click root apks still don’t fully support Marshmallow devices running on this chipset so Team Hovatek has put together this guide to teach you how to root your Infinix Hot S.

How do I root an Infinix Hot S?

I am facing a real weird issue here. I am not doing it for the first time. I recently used the hot s custom recovery provided by you to root my hot s, it was successful and I successfully rooted my phone. Today, I flashed wrong Dolby atmos so has to re flash the stock rom. Then I unlocked the bootloader and flashed the TWRP recovery, recovery flashes successfully but now it wipes the data etc and says unable to Mount data etc. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Its normal for stock recovery to replace custom recovery upon reboot.
What version of SuperSU did you use?
