Here is what you need to download the official Intex I-Buddy 3 stock ROM (firmware) flash file onto your computer so you can then flash it with the appropriate flashing tool that works with either your manufacturer or hardware’s SoC (system on chip) in mind.
Flashing a Intex I-Buddy 3 firmware file was once reserved for the manufacturer’s repair centers to help solve common mobile device problems such as bootloops, software errors, update errors, general software bugs, or devices that seemingly have ceased to work.
These days though most flashing tools have become available online so people like Intex I-Buddy 3 smartphone owners can flash the stock ROM themselves and save a trip into the service centers.
You can usually flash stock firmware for the Intex I-Buddy 3 by either using a flashing tool that’s made to work for the device’s system chip or for the manufacturer of the smartphone itself.

[*] 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.
