Be warned: Don’t update your Infinix Hot Note after rooting

Posted by

The Infinix Hot Note A.K.A Jim’s Big Thing is lovely a phablet we’ve reviewed here. Read the full review. Some users have reported that they rooted their unit, then after sometime they noticed an OTA update.


After performing the update, the phone bricked instantly, and needed some long processes (Which involves downloading Stock ROM and flashing) to restore it back.

Hot Note Update

If you own the Infinix Hot Note and already rooted, please ignore the OTA update to avoid stories that touch, and if you haven’t rooted, go ahead and run the update.
