SP Flash Tool is a user friendly tool designed for MediaTek devices like Tecno, Infinix, Innjoo, Gionee, BML, etc. SP Flash Tool is a great piece of software allows you to flash your Smartphones ROMs (Stock or Custom). It supports flash stock, installing custom recovery, Unbrick the Bricked Smartphones and firmware updates for your Mediatek devices. Below are the guide to Flash Custom ROMs using SP Flash Tool on Windows Computer.

Materials Needed
1. SP Flash tool - Download it here
2. Android ADB drivers - Download it here
3. Stock or Custom Rom you want to flash on your Smartphone. Make sure you download the exact Rom of your phone - few Roms can be found from this #link
4. Laptop or Desktop Computer
5. USB Cable for communicating between PC and Smartphones

To Flash a Backup or ROM with SP Flash Tool
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. Shelaf take no responsibility for any harm done while attempting this!

1. Disconnect your phone if connected with USB to the PC, and turn OFF the phone completely, also take out the battery if possible (ignore this step 1, for phones with built in battery).
2. 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.
2. Extract SP Flash tool on your computer and launch it.
3. Open the folder you extract it to and locate flash_tool, double click on it to open.


 3. Once it is launched, hit the Scatter-loading button


4. Locate the scatter file in the backup or Rom of the phone that you downloaded. It's usually a text file. (ALWAYS only load a ROM that is 100% made for your phone, flashing a wrong ROM may make your phone non-bootable).


5. Hit the "Download' button in SP Flash Tool to begin the flashing process


6. Connect your Smartphone to the computer with a USB without battery, if possible to remove. Press, Vol Down or Up so that the computer can easily detect the phone.
7. Once the Flashing is complete you will see a green circle confirming... With Download OK
.

8. Close the SP Flash Tool and disconnect your phone from the computer. Congratulation, your Smartphone is now flashed with the new Stock Rom you downloaded.

If your phone bootloops, remove battery and boot into recovery mode. Factory reset the phone.

Stay Glued for the updates about different Smartphones Latest Stock ROMs with downloading links and the instruction on how to get it done.

    1. That is why we keep shouting that make sure u have backup of ur previous ROM b4 u go 4 update. Since u don't have it's previous backup & d ROM loaded 4 u by an Engineer was full of errors, what u need is to download another compatible ROM & reflash ur phone by urself with d above method.

  31. and also, while installing preloader driver, my pc says, signature not verified

    ReplyDelete
  32. To flash an MTK/Any other Brand Phone u must be patient and calm, if you are too excited about the new lollipop stock ROM you downloaded sorry to say, you may encounter unfixable mistake.
    Furthermore, after downloading the exact Stock ROM for your device make sure all required drivers are installed on your PC from ADB,ADB Interface,Bootloader & SP Tool Drivers from COM5 to COM 11.
    In Addition, Before flashing a ROM do a standard crosscheck to confirm the presence of necessary files to flash, most especially the "SCATTER FILE".txt.
    In Conclusion, The Required And Genuine Tool to Flash MTK devices is "SP Flash Tool" coz it dedicated to flash only MTK PHONES.
    Finally, Unzip your ROM, Select the MT_6666_Scatter file.txt inside the ROM folder wait for SP Flash Tool to load the ROM, At the Top Left handside Click Firmware Upgrade, Click on Start. Plug In your MTK Phone for flashing to start.
    Note: Do not interrupt the process coz your phone will be dead beyond repair. For more tips on flashing call: 08083434342 Lexi TechKing.

    1. Remove the battery and replace it, then boot your phone into recovery mode.
      "Wipe data/factory reset", also "wipe cache partition", then reboot your phone and if the problem persist, look for another better ROM to re-flash your phone or restore the initial backup.
