Thank you very much for this post. I am about to root my phone. But after I did a backup with miracle crack 2.27A and tried to flash my recovery.img back, it came back with error. So I stopped. Please help me with a recovery.img and boot.img for Infinix Hot 4 X557-H807AD-N-170626, before I root it. Because if it bricks, I have no way than to download fresh rom online. Thanks

Thank you for the feedback. The error is got was "Err. Set Partition". I performed a read with scatter file and it confirm as done. So now, I want to write it back just to be safe incase I need unroot. I wish to send the images but no chance for attachments.

There's an attachment box beneath the post reply or you can also upload the images on cloud and drop the link.

When flashing with Miracle Box, ensure to include (tick) preloader.bin

They are all safe, if you have miracle dongle you can use Miracle Box, but if you do not have dongle then run miracle 2.27a (loader version) which does not require box/dongle.

Amazing tutorial. Great Work Hovatek :-*
Successfully rooted my Infinix hot 4 X557 on latest nougat (170626V86)

However, I want to add up something for newbies. Flash tool will start working and will give you a success message with a combination. Don't try to remove the cable before that. Or it will get hard bricked and it will take days for you to get it open again. My combination was pressing the power button for less then a milli second and it started flashing.

Moreover, I successfully disabled all infinix built-in crap, except xhide. If you disable xhide then your phone will restart every time while recieving incoming calls. Remeber, DONT DISABLE XHIDE.

Here is a complete list of apps I safely disabled.

Android Easter Egg
Android System Webview
App Lock
Backup and Restore
Basic Daydreams

XClub
XManager
XPower
XSecurity
XShare

I will be buying nova launcher and after that I will alao disable XOSLauncher.

My battery used to run 1.5 days in heavy use easily. After disabling all these app, my battery is running for 3 days smoothly.

Enjoy :p
