Infinix has announced today the roll out of O.T.A updates to its flagship, the Infinix note 4. This implies that users will now find updates available for their devices and can now upgrade from Android 7.0 (Nougat) to enjoy Android 8.0, the Oreo experience. Although updates are available to Infinix note 4 users in India only, it certainly will get to Africa and the rest of the world even more rapidly. This will be the second Infinix device to get android 8.0 after the Infinix Hot S3. Other Infinix devices are still stuck with XOS based on Android 7.0
WHEN WILL YOU RECEIVE ANDROID 8.0 OREO UPDATES ON YOUR DEVICE?
Users in India should be expecting to receive updates for their Infinix note 4 pro and Infinix zero 5 after which users from the rest of the world will receive theirs. We don’t have a word for other Infinix users as regards when they will receive their updates yet. Perhaps later, in the second half of the year.
HOW TO PREPARE YOUR DEVICE FOR THESE O.T.A UPDATES
Users should get updates soonest and should prep up in other to avoid trouble upgrading their devices. Here are some TIPS to help you in the course of your upgrade.
Firstly, unroot your device
- Unroot your device if you are rooted or go back to stock if you run a custom ROM already. This is very important to avoid issues like a bricked phone. If a user is rooted on his device, He becomes a developer and has developer rights. He will be able to upgrade his device on his own through custom ROMs. Unfortunately, he can’t be a developer and still expect developer duties from manufacturers. A big contradiction will occur and chances are you device will go haywire. So, if your device is one of the listed and you have root access, kindly unroot your device. you could also flash in your stock ROM. By flashing your stock ROM everything will be back to brand new, which is best. Check for some Infinix stock ROMs if need be.
If your device will not recieve this update, custom ROM like this Oreo for LG NEXUS 4 are always best to go with if you want to get enjoy the oreo or any other different ROM apart from stock.
Also, prepare your storage
- There could be storage issues, although this could be very rare. System updates are applied to the /system partition which is not accesssible to you or your applications. it will over-write your existing android version and should not take up more user space(space is already reserved for the operating system ranging from 512MB to 4GB) its always there whether there are new updates or not. This space is not accessible to users ( This is nothing like where you save movies). But in some exceptional cases where you need to download the update file first before installation you will need to free up space ranging from 200MB to 3GB in most cases, but this is a temporary storage and will be released after installation.
