    I will be expecting your response soon.

    • Hello Mr Emmanuel, Please how do you mean configure your hot note manually?

      No, rooting won’t damage the phone. However, you are advised to always unroot before upgrading the phone’s software via OTA update.

  • Pls i wld love to know the importance of rooting my infinix hot note?? Wat wil one stand 2 achieve wen he does

  • You guys rock! Even though I have the faintest idea abt phone..I was able to do this….tnks

  • Nice post. Please do you have any idea on how to root itel inote it1502? Is it true that itel phones are root-proof?

  • why does it need permisions like “take photos and videos” for it to run?? doesnt make sense..and the fact that i dont understand chinese makes it a hard sell for me to to even try to install. i have to know what its saying and have correct sensible permisions.

  • Thanx alot for ur reply. I saw some screen shots with outrageous MTN data balances, thats why am curious. But anyway would get the glo. tnx
    p.s incase of any new info, would appreciate.
    And my fingers are crossed for the comparison.

  • Mr Sam, really great work you are doing here. Please i got d new infinix hot note. pls help me out with ways i can get MTN bis working on it or any other better MTN subscription.
    And also in your opinion, what do u think about the new ‘innjoo one’ , maybe compared to infinix hot note and its like.
    Thank you so much .

    • If glo network is good in your area, why not go for that? You can just change the IMEI to a blackberry IMEI and start using glo bis on it. We didn’t get the innjoo one device and can’t really make much comparison between both device from afar as at now. Maybe soon, we might do a comparison between both devices and that’s after proper study of the innjoo one device.

  • And also please changing of imei of an andriod does it mean d subscription will be same wif that of bb

    • In Nigeria, the basic reason to why we’d change our android phone IMEI number is to enable us use glo bis on the device. Other network bis plan won’t work with the changed imei as at now.

  • Pls admin is it tru dt rooting of a device is dangerous n cud damage d device and also fone with ips or hd which is more preferrable to buy tnx

    • Well, so far so good, I haven’t experienced cases where rooting damaged a phone. Rooting gives you root access to an android device.

      HD Screen is more advanced and better than just an IPS Screen.

      • Pls ever since i flashed my infinix Hot Note Pro and upgraded it to XUI i can’t run any other update on the phone, keeps telling me can’t update an OTA stuff and even when i unroot it, it still won’t work.
