Flash ROM with SP Flash Tool On MT6595, MT6592, MT6589, MT6572, MT6582, MT6577

If you'd like to know how to flash a ROM on MT6595, MT6592, MT6589, MT6572, MT6582, MT6577, you're on the right post. Normally we refer people to a rooting post, which includes this information, as the procedure is mostly the same. But for the sake of simplicity, we'll write a stand-alone tutorial.
Note, if you don't have access to a backup, create one first - http://www.giz*k-phone/

Remember, we ARE NOT responsible for any hell that happens to your phone. You take any and all responsibility for messing with your phone.

What you'll need:

What to do:
  • Step 1 - Install the PDANet USB ADB VCOM drivers - http://www.giz*windows/
  • Step 2 - Download, extract, and run the latest version of SP Flash Tools
  • Step 3 - Check to see if a scatter file exists. Look in the firmware / ROM's folder. You should see a file that looks similar to 'MT6582_Android_scatter_EMMC.txt'. If you don't see the scatter file, you need to create one with MTK Droid Tools. After you've created the scatter, place it in the same folder as the firmware / ROM you intend to flash.
  • Step 4 - Select 'scatter-loading' from upper-right of SP Flash Tools. Navigate to the ROM / Firmware's directory and you should see a file that looks something like MT6582_Android_scatter_EMMC.txt. Select this and you should then see a checklist of different parts of the ROM load in the bottom portion of SP Flash Tools.
  • Step 5 - Deselect 'preloader' in the checklist. If you don't want the firmware / ROM to mess with your current partitioning, deselect EBR1 and EBR2 as well. NOTE: If you're sure you have the correct firmware for your phone, you can leave Preloader selected.
  • Step 5.5 - If you are only flashing recovery, deselect everything except for recovery.img. Double click recovery line and direct Flash Tool to location of your recovery. (see video at 02:00)
  • Step 6 - Make sure the phone is disconnected from USB and powered off. Select 'download' from the top of SP Flash Tools. NOTE: If all portions of the firmware are checked, then you can select 'Firmware Upgrade'. If you have problems with 'Firmware Upgrade' or vice versa, you can try the other one.
  • Step 7 - Connect USB cable to phone and watch the pretty colors fly
If you run into any errors, please see this thread for a list of common problems and some possible fixes.


  1. Flash tool is the best software that we recommend to peoples flashing for the first time, as there is not chance of failure in scattering method. -

  2. What can be the reason if it stays 0% and will never proceed? It switches to Searching but that's all.

  3. You have a real ability for writing unique content. I like how you think and the way you represent your views in this article. I agree with your way of thinking. Thank you for sharing.
