DIY: Downgrade Infinix Note 4 to Android 7 Nougat

Recently, we posted that  Infinix pushed the official Android 8.1 Oreo OTA Update to Infinix Note 4 devices, but it is unfortunate that update filled with bugs. Most of the Note 4 users that upgraded their device to Android 8.1 Oreo are complaining about bugs such as slow battery charging, battery draining fast and much more. The worst is the X-charge ⚡ that does not work properly.

Well, it is not a big deal, first updates most times are likely to have bugs. It is certain that Infinix will surely push another update to fix the issues, but if you can't exercise patience till then or you think you can't cope with the bugs from the Note 4 Oreo update, then you should consider downgrading to the previous version which is Android 7.0 Nougat.

Recall that I always advised you to have a backup of your previous firmware whenever you want to upgrade your device, in case you decide to revert back.

However, those of you that don't still have the backup should use the stock ROM Firmware provider here in this post for that purpose.

In that case, you have to download the Infinix Note 4 stock ROM based on your phone built number before you upgraded otherwise you may brick your phone.
