How to flash/Unbrick Mtk Phones.

I decide post the tutorial so that a lot of people can fallow those steps to flash their dead phones or stock at boot loop of MTK phones such as Tecno, Infinix, Gionee etc.

Disclaimer: Don’t flash another preloader and DSP_BL blocks! It is always dangerous! On some models of phones you will have a brick even if you download these blocks read from a phone which you own! Always remove from them marks in SPFT! ALWAYS have a working backup of your original ROM before you flash a new unknown ROM. Asuktek¬†take no responsibility for any harm done while attempting this!

  7. Now connect or reconnect the USB cable to the phone with the PC while the phone is still off, Windows should pop up and begin to install the MTK65XX Preloader Drivers, this only happens if you installed the Mediatek Preloader USB Drivers correctly in Windows. After they successfully installed, disconnect the USB cable again.
  8. Hold down volume up or volume down for easy detection.
  9. Once the phone is detected red line be shown at the buttom of the flash tool fallowed by yellow line.
  10. when the flashing process is completed a tick will appear on the screen. then insert your battery and switched on the phone.flashtool5

Note that if your phone stays at boot loop (power on and off) just remove the battery and enter recovery mode then wipe cache and wipe all data it will be ok.

To enter recovery mode just hold volume down and power button while your phone is off dont release until 4 seconds after  phone screen is on, when the android logo appeared just press volume down and menu will appear then nevigate and do factory reset.

If SP Flash tool encountered an error goto here and see if we can help.
