Upgrade Tecno Camon C8 to the new HiOS + Android 6.0 Marshmallow

We have been expecting Android 6.0 Marshmallow for Tecno Camon C8 but instead Tecno just released a Beta update of its new HiOS of this device. If you don't know, HiOS is a new custom user interface (UI) for Tecno just like the XUI on infinix. It makes your phone look smart, different and also fun to use.

Make sure your device is not rooted.
At least 20% battery life
Make backup of your device (MoboRobo or Syncios are cool :D )
Dsmedia24 is not responsible for whatever may happen to your device
Do at your own risk.

You can update your device to the new HiOS by flashing the package from SD card in recovery menu.
Follow the procedure below to update your device

Download the file from the links below. Make sure you download the right one of your device.
