If you are reading this, it’s either you have a Tecno Y2 2016 build that has display issues after flashing the older firmware to your device, your new Tecno Y2 has been infected by malware or you just want to have a stock firmware backup of your new Y2.

All the same, you will get the Y2 firmware here. Mind you, this firmware is meant for the 2016 build of Tecno Y2. The other build is Tecno Y2-H721-A2-KK-20151202 which is different from the one in this post.The 2015 build can cause display issues/white screen after flashing it to the newer build.

If you have display issues after flashing a Tecno Y2, this firmware is a display fix because it’s the original ROM of your device.

  1. Please this is my build number
    Y2-H721A2-KK-160720V1 FOR TECNO Y2
    is this ROM going to work for me and also would it need any password or code ?

  2. Wow… Thanks a lot bro, the file worked 100%%%%% and my Y2 with display issue is back. You just saved my ass.

  3. please I want to make sure of something…. how many types of tecno y2 are on the market ?….and what is this variant you are talking about?

  4. please I want to make sure of something…. how many types of tecno y2 are on the market ?….and what is this variant you are talking about?

    1. It’s just two variants and there are original Tecno phones. The difference is that, the old Tecno Y2 is different from the new one(2016 versions).

      Flashing the firmware of the older Y2 to the newer one will cause display issues because their display drivers are different. The firmware here is for the new Y2 and can fix issues after flashing the wrong firmware.

      You can find out the build date by looking at the original battery of your Y2.

    2. please Kriz I want to know something about using recovery file in the rom here… my phone tecno y2 is becoming slow these days even after reset…. I want to ask if after using the recovery file it will become normal… and also I want to ask if I can do it after copying all the files onto a fresh SD card…. or if any other procedure.

    3. The slow operation of your Tecno Y2 isn’t about the recovery. If after resetting it’s still slow, you might have to replace the entire OS which is flashing. Check your About Phone or phone’s battery, if it has 2016 on it, use the 2016 firmware. If it doesn’t have, use the 2015 build and flash it.

    4. is there any method by which I do it with out PC…… I friend had a bootloop and did something like that by booting into recovery mode….. I also don’t PC now

  5. i am in Tanzania and my phone built number is Y2-h721-A2-KK-20160418 will this file flash with no problem?

  6. Honestly, I have been looking for this firmware. I was able to recover the phone. But with invalid imei, after I rebuilt with miracle. The 3G network didn’t come up except with on 2g/3g. It was the initial issue that made me lose the phone. Please, help with miracle firmware backup of protect f, protect s, nvram, and secro.
