  1. Not working. I purchased an infinix X5010 today. On updating System update it has denied to reboot. Only showing Infinix Powered by Android. Please assist.
    Thanks in advance.

    • From what I have seen, hard reset is working.

      Meanwhile since your phone is less than 24hours, you have the privilege to return it.

      On the other hand, your update got stucked during your update. We cannot help further than recommend you return the phone to where you bought it
