  8. Hello Etsu, I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

    You were asked your email address because your Infinix X557 was part of Google privacy control from Android 5.0 and later.

    To unlock your Infinix x557 from Google, you either enter the email address you used to receive emails and download apps from Play Store.

    In case you forget, you can request for password reset via Gmail website(www.gmail.com). After you have reset your login details, come back to unlock your phone.

    Fast boot is a different thing altogether. Simply remove your device battery. Try again

    1. Please keep retrying with the key combinations. Power button then volume up button. Do not hold the buttons

  22. Hi, my infinix hot 4 won’t stop restarting all by itself and going off right after it shows the XOS logo.. It kept doing this for about an hour till my battery went flat completely. Right after that, I plugged in my charger to see if it had stopped but it started to vibrate like i was trying to switch it on while it was dead. What can I do to stop this unending loop.? I tried to go to the recovery mode with my volume up and power button while it kept restarting but it always stopped at the no command mode and continued to restart all over again…
    I need serious urgent help with this cause I have something I mustn’t lose on my phone that pertains to my life.

    1. That’s a very complicating situation. The best thing to do right now is to take your phone to a specialized phone technician.

    2. If it stopped at no command, you have to make combination of power button and volume up button.

      The perpetual rebooting implies that your operating system has gone corrupt. It’s missing a boot response to boot normally.
