Some weeks ago, Infinix announced the release of the new XOS Chameleon software. This replaces the famous XUI software found on their devices. From our earlier review of the software, you will learn that it was first pre-installed on the Infinix Hot S. Infinix has made it available for the Infinix Note 2 LTE and the Infinix Zero 3.
This update to XOS comes via OTA, but in case that didn’t happen for you, see steps to downloading and installing it on your phone below:
Steps to Install XOS Chameleon on your Infinix Phone
- Don’t download this on a rooted phone.
- Be sure to check your built number and download accordingly.
- Choose the SDcard link if you want to flash it through your phone, and the SP Flash if you want to flash with your PC.
