Here you will find the official Infocus M460 stock ROM (firmware) flash file that you can download on your computer to then flash with the appropriate flashing tool that works for your manufacturer.
Flashing these stock ROM files manually is done by many people all around the world, and generally speaking, it’s not a difficult thing to do. But if you are a little bit uneducated in the firmware department, there are also some things you should know before you pick up your device with the intention of flashing on your mind.
Each mobile device can be locked to a carrier or unlocked after a certain amount of time. Some manufacturers have stricter rules than others. For instance, if you own a Samsung handset, the general rule of thumb is that if your device is locked to a carrier, then you should only flash firmware from that carrier made for your Infocus M460 device. If your device is network unlocked, however, then you can dabble in firmware, still made for your device, but from other carriers. Other manufacturers of smartphones don’t lock things as much, and flashing firmware is a lot easier.
Most people update their mobile devices by sticking with the over-the-air software updates that arrive automatically. But if you didn’t want to use mobile data or if you had a rooted device and didn’t get OTA updates arriving, then you could flash the firmware files manually instead by using a flashing tool.
There are a number of these flashing tools out there, and the one you need to use will depend on your hardware or manufacturer. Most MediaTek devices such as the Infocus M460 can use the SP Flash Tool, while other manufacturers like Samsung have their own Odin flashing tool instead. Tools like Odin aren’t always released in the wild. It’s said that Odin was intended for use by repair centers, but it eventually was leaked online for keen flashers to begin using as well.

How to Flash Stock ROM Using SUT L3 Tool
1. Start by downloading the Software Update Tool to your computer and then extract the file by right-clicking > selecting “Extract” from the menu. (“L3” is the version of the Software Update Tool, so make sure you download the right one from the list on the download page.)
2. Your computer may prompt you to install .net framework on the computer before the installation is complete. Follow the guidelines to get that done if it asks you for it.
3. Follow the SUT setup wizard found in the extracted folder.
4. Turn off the Android smartphone by holding in the Power button until the device turns off.
5. Source the firmware file that you’re looking to flash and then download the file onto your computer.
6. Once the firmware is extracted and ready to install, open the SUT L3 Tool and then click on the “Next” button from its main interface.
7. Click on the dots next to where it says “Please select the software image file” and then browse through your computers hard drive to the location of the firmware that you extracted earlier and upload it to this location in the flashing tool.
8. Once you’ve successfully uploaded the firmware, you’ll see the firmware extension path in the box.
9. Now click on the drop’down menu where it says “None” and select the “Enable Emergency Download Process” option from the list instead.
10. With the Android device still turned off connect it to the computer with its USB cable and then click on the “Next” button from the SUT interface.
11. You should now see a message on the flash tool’s interface letting you know that it is “loading the image files….”
12. This now means that the firmware is getting flashed to your device. Once you can see the green tick, you know that the flashing is complete and your device is ready to disconnect from the computer.
Your new stock firmware should now be installed and ready to use.
Alternative Flashing Tools
Note: Some Infocus smartphones such as the Infocus M425 may not have MediaTek chipsets and therefore using the SP Flash Tool to flash the firmware files won’t work. Instead, you may need to use the SUT L3 Tool that can help devices with Intel system chips flash firmware files.
[*] Back Up Your Data: You should always back up your data before you begin flashing new firmware files to your smartphone or tablet. All of your pictures, music, videos, documents, etc. should be still on your device after you have updated the firmware, but you may need to restore the contacts and applications from a backup.
[*] Wipe Cache and Factory Reset: Some people claim that taking a factory reset isn’t necessary after updates, but at the very least you should wipe the system cache after installing new firmware. This way you can help eliminate any performance issues and battery draining bugs. Taking a factory reset is the best way of avoiding common problems many users face after applying software updates.
