How To Use SP Flash Tool

How To Use SP Flash Tool

In this tutorial, We’ll be discussing how to use SP Flash tool. Now, SP Flash tool is a very powerful tool which can help you unbrick your phone in a case where you have a serious level of bricking. To use SP Flash tool, you’ll need your VCOM drivers which is what PdaNet is for. You’ll need the files you wish to flash, which could either be the MTK backup for that phone or specific files . Take note that you don’t flash files for one phone (model) to another phone (model) if not you’ll end up making things worse. For example, you don’t flash (Tecno) P5 files to a D3 or an M3, it could make things worse, and then SP Flash tool itself. First things first, we need to install our VCOM drivers and that’s what PdaNet is for (do a manual VCOM driver install if this fails). So I launch PdaNet Note that without drivers, your phone and PC can’t communicate (if this fails, install VCOM manually). This tells me I have existing Android drivers so I click Yes to overwrite Here, my phone brand isn’t on the list so I tick Others, OK Now, I’m being prompted to connect the phone to the PC with USB Debugging enabled. To enable USB Debugging on an Android phone, you go to Settings – Developer Options and you tick USB Debugging. I’ve done that so I’ll connect the phone. Alright! Connected! Phone is detected. Installing USB Driver. Setting up Network driver. At the end of this, I should have my VCOM and MT drivers installed on PC FOR NEWER MTK PHONES, DO A MANUAL VCOM DRIVER INSTALL. PDANET METHOD WON’T WORK Now, we proceed to SP Flash tool. I’m going to run as Administrator. The reason why we run as Administrator is to avoid permission issues which shouldn’t be frequent. In SP Flash tool, the first thing you need to do is to load the scatter file. So I’m going to click Scatter-loading by the right here. In the Window that pops up, you locate the MTK backup (firmware) which you have. In this case, its in the Hovatek folder. Now, this is the scatter file, it looks something like this. So I highlight it then click Open Here I have all my files loaded and ticked. Since I have a bricked phone and all I need to do is flash just the system.img, I’ll untick the rest. Its important that you only flash what you need in SP Flash tool. I leave Android ticked. I double-click to be sure. I select my system.img and then click Open. So we’re good to go. I click Download. I get a prompt. Not all images are correctly loaded… What this is saying is that you did not load all the files, are you sure you want to flash just one file? I’m pretty confident I want just one file in this case, just my system.img. I’m going to click a Yes Notice that Stop is now red and the rest are grayed out which means you’re to connect your phone Now, when you connect your phone, you’re to ensure its switched off . I’m going to take out the battery from mine and slot it back in (just power off if yours is inbuilt) but still leave the phone off and then I’m going to connect it to the PC via USB cord. [Alarm Clock] I have a detection and SP Flash tool is flashing. You can see the progress bar at the bottom. It could take some time so you need to be patient. So Flashing is complete. You’ll usually know flashing is complete by this green circle saying Download OK At this point, you can remove your battery and slot back in (if removable) then boot your phone and your phone should be up and running again.
