I have noticed something with Android smartphone versions in a way that Android version KitKat doesn’t receives OTA (over the air) update of Lollipop version while Lollipop Android phones receives update for 6.0 Marshmallow and so on.
Tecno H6 is one of the Android smartphone that runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat and can never be upgraded to 5.1 Lollipop through OTA update but only by installing a custom ROM.
So, that’s why I decided to publish this article for those trying to upgrade their Tecno H6 version particularly, through installation of custom ROM method. Now, let’s go.
How To Upgrade Tecno H6 To Android 5.0.1 Lollipop
