BTW, there are other variants of the X521 to try if your exact build isn't yet available
Thanks for your quick answer. I'll follow your advise and try the other variants.
I opted for flashing Infinix X521 Hot S (X521-J5088E1-M-161223V23) using SP flash tool in firmware mode.
I got the firmware at https://hovatek.com/redirect.php?link=ht...223V23.zip
The phone is working well.
I previously tried Infinix X521 Hot S (X521-J5088C1-M-160929V89) and bricked the telephone.
I got the firmware at https://hovatek.com/redirect.php?link=ht...929V89.zip
The tutorial at https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-533.html
got me out of trouble.
Now I need help for installing TWRP and rooting the phone.
I have tried https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwDqDpY...p=drivesdk
I tried both of them with the scatter.txt zipped with the recovery.img in the above links.
The flashing procedure ended with the green circle but the TWRP didn’t install.
I also tried to flash them with the scatter.txt in the firmware without success.
I wonder if there is any option to install TWRP in X521 J5088E1-M-161223V23
