    I flashed the CWM on my Tecno C8 marshmallow and it got stuck on bootloop, why would that be?

    1. admin says

      did you follow above procedure correctly? because mine worked without bootloop

  2. Don Aketch says

    Yes I did, I followed every procedure carefully. I'm not sure whether it could be my phones build number before i upgraded to marshmallow, it was a 2016 build. The upgrade was succesful anyway

  3. Don Aketch says

    Did you upgrade to marshmallow using sp flash tool or you flashed the t card update via recovery?

    1. admin says

      Sp flashtool method
