Do you have an Infinix phone that you want to flash a custom ROM into? Our tutorial of this tool is all you need to learn how to use the software.
What is the Infinix Flash Tool?
The Infinix Flash Tool is basically a firmware flashing tool for basically any smartphone with a Mediatek chipset that can be used to upgrade their software, repair them, unlock them, unbrick them, remove their screen lock and so on and so forth.
Before you install
Before you download and activate this tool, I want to say two important things. One, Richeetech will not be held liable if any thing bad befalls your android smartphone (for instance, say you mistakenly Brick your phone). Use at your own risk.
Secondly, there are certain system requirements you need to fulfill before you get started. So before you start, make sure that:
- You have a Windows PC
- Have a USB Cable.
- You must have installed MTK USB drivers on your PC
- You’re using this tool for devices with MediaTek chipsets only.
- You have charged the battery of your device above 50% minimum.
- You have the right firmware for your device.

How to use the Infinix Flash Tool
Step 2: Now you need to get the official Infinix Scatter based Firmware downloaded and installed on your smartphone.
Step 3: Next, you will need to extract the Infinix flash tool on your computer. If you’ve done this correctly, the window you should see in your computer screen should show you the following files:
Step 4: See that green looking circular icon among the files in the image above? That’s the flash_tool.exe. Click it to launch.
Step 5: Once it opens, you should be looking at a file upload interface like the one below. Click on the “Browser”.
Step 6: In the pop up dialog box, search for the “Scatter” file under the Stock Firmware folder. Click open to upload the file.
Step 7: Now back to the file upload interface click “Start”.
Step 8: Now we turn our direction to your Infinix device. Switch it off and plug it to the computer. Press the volume up or down key so that the flash tool can recognize your phone. Once this happens, the Flashing process will begin automatically (all other things being equal) and be done within about 10 mins.
Step 9: Once the installation process is completed, you will see a green checkmark popup on the screen. To finalize, simply close the Infinix flash tool and disconnect the device from your system. You’re all set!
And that’s exactly how you can download and use the Infinix flash tool for your Note 5, Hot 8, S4 and all other Infinix smartphones
