The Zero 5 is one of the latest flagship devices released by Hong Kong based mobile phone brand Infinix. This device runs on MediaTek MT6757 chipset and android 7.0 out of the box customized with XOS 3.0. Apart from the metal body, rounded edges and glass upfront, the physical design still looks like a smartphone from the dinosaur era my opinion oooo 😃😃. I think Infinix should do better with their next monster device.

Freedom of customization is one great thing about Android OS. The usual catch to have full access to do this is to root the device so as to have Super User permission. The steps below will show you how to install TWRP recovery then root this device device with 100% success.

All Files will be wiped on device make sure you backup your important files (contacts, sms, pictures, etc)
