    1. MTK Engineering Mode should work fine for your phone even without rooting it, I don't think you have tried that MTK Engineering Mode, pls give it trial and if it also refused to get it done, follow this link instruction: www.shelaf.com/2015/10/universal-method...

    1. There might be some temporary system data stuck there that's causing a conflict. Kindly restore your backup file, if you have it and if not, try wiping the system cache partition by boot your phone in to Recovery Mode and select "wipe cache partition," NOT "wipe data/factory reset."
      Best of luck.
