I can see that lots of Infinix Hot 2 users still find it difficult to upgrade their Smartphone to latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the initial posted method. Below is the simple method for you to flash/install the Android 6.0 on your Infinix Hot 2 via SP Flash Tool.

Note: You can now update your Hot2 via OTA. It is advisable you find out if the update is already available on your phone so that you don’t go through all these long processes. To check, navigate to Settings » About Phone » Software Update. If it say your system is up to date, you can then commence with the steps below. 

Also
Note: This is not an official firmware from Infinix. It is a copy of Marshmallow Rom dumped by Hovatek Team to create its scattered file, which makes flashing possible via SP Flash Tool.

Needed Materials
SP Flashtool - Download it here
Android 6.0 Rom Dump - Download it here
VComm Driver - Download it  here


Steps to Install VCOM Drivers
1. Extract the downloaded Vcom Drivers.
2. Go to Device Manager
» click Action » click Add Legacy Hardware
3. Under welcome to add new hardware, click next
4. Select, Advanced Option and click next
5. Select "show all devices" and click next.
6. Click have disk
7. Browse to your Vcom Drivers extracted folder and select the driver setup up file and click
open, then ok.
8. Select Mediatek preloader usb vcom driver and click next.


To Flash Android 6.0 Marshmallow to Infinix Hot 2 X510 Via SP Flash Tool
1. Extract the Android 6.0 Dump Rom file which you downloaded from the above link to the desktop screen of your computer or create a folder and extract to it.
2. Now, power off your device, and remove the battery.
3. Navigate to the SP Flash Tool folder and double click on it
4. Launch the SP flash tool.exe
5.
Once it is launched, hit the Scatter-loading button. Navigate to the Infinix Hot 2 rom folder and select the scatter file MT6580_Android_scatter.txt "
6. Hit the "Download' button in SP Flash Tool to begin the flashing process
7. Connect your Smartphone immediately to the computer with a USB without battery, and press Volume Down or up key, so it would be detected easily by your computer.
8. The Flashing process would be in progress, and once the Flashing is complete you will see a green circle confirming... With Download OK

Simple as that. Boot your Infinix Hot 2 devices and Android 6.0 Marshmallow will smile to your on the device!

Likely Question: Will I be able to flash future OTA updates after flashing this ROMDump?
Answer: Yes, you will. The ROMDump is not rooted and is also running on stock recovery. It passed the System Check test, see proof below:
