Download Tecno Y2 2016 Stock ROM


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 my 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.

      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.

        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.

          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.

            You will have to look for a PC and do a full flash since the ordinary hard reset via recovery did not fix the issues.
