Tecno Camon C8 to Android 6.0 Marshmallow -UPGRADE

Camon C8 users, I know you have been expecting this update for a long
period of time, Android 6.0 Marshmallow finally arrived for your device.
It is time for you to flex with the new Google OS Android 6.0
Marshmallow on your Camon C8.  

Normally, there are 2 ways to get the new Google OS running on your
device. One of the ways is for you to exercise patient for Over
The Air (OTA) update to appear on your phone. This may come anytime
as OTA updates are usually released in batches hence, not everyone
get’s it at the same time.
The second way of getting the Android 6.0 upgrade into your Tecno C8 is through a downloaded .zip file. Fortunately, Tecno Forum has
made this zipped file available for everyone who can not wait any longer
for the OTA update.

There are 2 method of flashing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update into
the Tecno Camon C8. You can flash it through TF Card or using SP Flash
tools, but the available software for now is via TF Card, so that means,
the below guide will focus on how to upgrade your Tecno C8 via TF Card
method and the post will be update later as soon as we got software for

Important Notice

o be on a
safer side, you’re strongly advised to Unroot. Upgrading an already
rooted device Over-the-Air or via TF card can get the device bricked.

flashing process will re-brand your smartphone and thus clear all your important data and files.
