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:
- MTK / MediaTek based smartphone
- USB Data Cable
- USB ADB VCOM drivers
- SP Flash Tool
- MTK Droid Tools (if scatter not included with ROM)
- 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
- 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
