    How to solve?
    Pixi 3.5 4009e – MTK6275

  • Chris Papas

    Heed some help with an MTK Iphone 7 Plus, I believe it to be a 6571 Rom (model is A875 on the board).
    PC recognises the unit when connected via SP Flash tool. I use the SP tool to flash the unit.

    Flash is successful using the “MT6571__alps__MN4A2ZPA__875__4.4.2__ALPS.KK1.MP7.V1.22 read by asif” rom I downloaded.

    So it goes to completion using “Download” mode, but still no power, no screen display etc.

    Any thoughts.

  • You might have flashed the wrong firmware. Please mention your device name & the ROM you flashed.

          I followed this method and it worked perfectly.

          After installing all the required usb vcom drivers, the computer wont recognize the phone at first, ignore it. Follow the next step, i.e., flashing with SP Flash tool. Connect the phone after clicking download and it should work. It worked for me.

    Hi bro I have almost done everything but when I am connecting my mobile to pc they was showing me usb not recognized and automatically disconnected my mobile can u tell me any solution

    • Start the download process, it will show “Waiting for device”. Connect the device at that time, it will start flashing. Once the process starts, the device won’t eject.

      • I have Xperia M5 E5663, I tried to flash a generic ftf with FlashTool in flashmode, it asked to flash the FSC script, but i clicked no, but the flash still continues and finished it successfully anyway.
        Afterwards, it asked to disconnect the usb, my phone turns off immediately and have no reaction to any power on modes (All of those fasboot, flashmode, & normal mode, even the hard reset methods), it only reacts with a RED led on the top, only turned on when i plug a usb cable into it.

        What should i do? Should I just bring it to the Service centre?

        • nevermind… I bring my device to service center already.
          I already successfully rooted my device in MM too

    I am from Brazil, i have a doogee X5 (8Gb) and need help.
    I updated the rom to stock (it was with a custom), but now the phone no longer works, the backlight lights up, and the touch sound as well, but it has no image in android, recovery mode, or CWM.
    I utilized the mt6580 flashtool, try a lot of diferents roms, try erase the bootloader, format, etc.
    All roms has the same problem, only sound..

    Can someone help me?

    • I guess there’s no official firmware available for the device.

    • VDavid003

      I guess something near boot is corrupt.. Are you using the right scatter file?
      Are you installinv the right rom? I have the same phone and there are 3 revisions of the device. The first is rare and not really supported but it is up in needrom.com . The second(what I have) is the most common, often called as Doogee x5 ddr2 The third is less common but is the newest. It is also called Doogee x5-b or Doogee x5 ddr3.
      Oh and an other thing: is factory mode showing up? Opening it is like going to recovery but use volume down instead of up.
      Glad if I could help you

    • Error 0x8

      Message: BROM ERROR: ?? (0x8)

      Meaning: The size of a file is larger than the available / possible partition size

      * Ensure that the file(s) you’re trying to flash are actually for your exact phone model
      * Try another stock ROM
      * Change the phone’s emmc chip
      * Try using a different PC

        ok, let me do it and I will tell you… thanks

    Hi. I have here a Huawie G610-u20 in which it is currently dead boot (it only vibrates when I turn on the phone). I know flashing and I already have the necessary files for the flashing of stock firmware. My problem is that when I flash the scatter file (download it), the phone keeps on restarting. I mean it keeps on reconnecting the whole time. When I check it on the Computer Management>Ports>Drivers, I can see its Pre-loader but it still reconnects. Any ideals on how to fix this error? I would really appreciate the help.

    • Unplug the device, load necessary stuffs in SP Flash tool. Click on “Download” it will show “Waiting for device”, now connect your device without battery using a good USB cable. It works everytime! 🙂

    hi i have a lenovo a5500-H at the moment flashing the rom a5500-HV wich is compactible the flash interupted now device show in pc device manager but not power on flash tool dont see the device can you please help me thanks

  • Joris Luder

    Hi, thanks for the clear explanation. It all worked fine, untill I wanted to boot my phone (Jiayu S3). still nothing happend. So I tried about 5 different roms (original old, original newest, custom) but whatever I do, it does not boot. The only thing that shows is a selction with 3 options, but when I select one (quick, custom or normal boot) it sits for a while and goes to black again.

  • Gina Bridges

    I successfully flashed stock rom, but tablet will not boot. There is no battery icon when charging, only a black screen. I have tried pressing buttons, different chargers, different charging cables but still tablet seems dead. It is seen by the computer and sp flash tool.

    • Did you flash the correct Stock ROM? I guess the stock ROM was not official.

      • Gina Bridges

        It was the ROM from the same tablet from a backup that I made.

        • Then you might have used TWRP recovery to restore the backup. Did you create the Scatter file by yourself or downloaded it from somewhere else?

          • Gina Bridges

            I made a backup with Mtk Droid Tools, so perhaps it is not flashable with SP Flash Tools.

      • Gina Bridges

        I have the ROM from a previous backup of the tablet.

I have tried to use Smart Phone Flash Tool but I don’t what to mark to flash my phone. I have marked everything at least 3 times and still the same error (DL GET DRAM SETTING FAIL (0x13BE)).

  • Pardster

    So my girlfriends phone (thl 5000) got into a bootloop, the first time flashing didn’T work, after reinstalling windows on the pc used for flashing it did work, the phone worked for 2 days.
    After 2 days it had a similiar bootloop again (the thl logo apeared slightly longer this time)
    I simply tried flashing it again (with sp flash tools and the provided firmware from thl, once using ‘firmware upgrade’ and after that not working ‘format all + download’)
    SP flash tools shows that the flashinng was successfull, but! now the screen simply stays black when trying to turn it on.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Seems like some hardware issue. You can try contacting your device’s support.

U will have help me if u r a good brother ……My phone is lenovo A526

        • Devs-Lab Staff

          Don’t know about this error. You can try contacting Flash Tool developer.

    • Ray LZ Joey

      I don’t have that type of phone but does it charge? Because mine still charges, but when it reaches 0% it takes at least an hour to recognize that it is plugged up, then finally starts charging.

      I don’t know because I have been rooting phones for only 2 years. Just a suggestion though, leave it on the charger (phone off) for at least 2hrs – if you don’t get any sign that it is charging then, yes, contact the Device Support. If it does start charging then you are still in a Softbricked mode, and just take it easy – do one Checkbox at a time or do all without preloader. You can email me at anytime. ([email protected])

      Charge your device upto 1hr. To connect your device to PC, open Device manager in your Windows PC & keep it open. Now connect your device to your computer. Check if the device manager refreshes or any new device appears. If any of this appear, just follow the above manual method of installing MTK drivers. Now connect your device by holding both volume button & flash ROM from SP Flash Tool.

    hey I done somthing wrong, I don’t know if this is the right thread. Firstly my problem is when I turn my phone on logo appears and just white screen. nothing else. it doesn’t get recognised by pc. when I try to boot into recovery mode, gets stuck at logo(did something wrong here too, i’ll later). What I was trying to do at the first place was trying to install a custom rom. My device is Huawei y560-uo2 kitkat 4.4.2. I wanted to install lolipop 5.1.1. So as per this tutorial —(https://boycracked.com/2016/03/04/cyanogen-mod-12-1-android-5-1-1-lollipop-for-huawei-ascend-y5-y560-l01/) i should root my phone so i tried to root it with adb method, unlocking booloader was successful, but after replacing the current recovery with custom recovery, I could no longer boot into recovery, just stuck at logo. but I could boot into android. Then i tried kingroot apk, worked fine. so now I have root access. then I tried to install the custom rom, but it would need a working recovery mode. then I started searching for flashing rom without recovery, then in a tutorial it had some cammands which would install from my adb folder. everything worked well. then on this step where I should wipe my phone with this command: fastboot -w and install new rom with command something like: upadate (filename.zip), error occured saying error in syntax. currently i have my device’s stock rom, new rom, adb, android sdk. will it get into working again? is it bricked? HELP ME plzzz!!! contact me 0n +91 9961-339-672

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Your device is not bricked! You have just formatted your system partition. To connect your device to PC, open Device manager in your Windows PC & keep it open. Now connect your device to your computer. Check if the device manager refreshes or any new device appears. If any of this appear, just follow the above manual method of installing MTK drivers. Now connect your device without battery & flash ROM from SP Flash Tool.

I am using Elephone P9000Lite and recently tried to root my phone, but during the process the SPFlash tool that I used hanged out and thus not formatted my phone completely. Now my phone does not even want to start. Fore more detailed information and simplicity of this reply I post below a link to my XDA-Developers thread:


    Is there a chance to recover my phone from that state or I need to buy a new one?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello! Good Evening! I am from Venezuela. I’ve followed every step you ask in tutorial. I am using a newer version of SP Flash Tool (v5.1604.00 Build 0x325324) My phone (Huawei Ascend Y320 U-10) started having problems with software, everything just gave error so I decided to Flash it’s stock ROM. I searched the specific ROM Huawei launched for my Phone (U10V100R001C70B400N) my Phone is for Digitel here in Venezuela. Everything just looks perfect until now. I flashed it as you describe but it keeps freezing at logo, and nothing else, factory reset after flash: Doesn’t work either. Reading on other forums, I verified that I needed to check the “DA DL ALL with checksum”, using this method phone freezes flashing at 34.06 Mb and gives error “S_DA_SDMMC_READ_FAILED (3153)” Could you please guide me past this point? Thanks in advance!!

  • Clement

    I have a Huawei Y600-U20 Smart phone that fails to boot, it stucks at Huawei Logo.
    I had this problem before and i was able to flash it through recovery mode with this firmware Y600-U20_V100R001C456B008_Firmware_Malaysia_Indonesia_Philippines_Others_05021NTQ (SD card).
    Now i cannot use the recovery mode to flash the same firmware, i can enter the recovery mode but the android recovery mode seems faulty, the android robot is displayed but keeps blinking after every few second. There are no command menus displayed as it used to.
    Can anyone help me on how to revive the recovery mode so that i can flash my phone.
    NB: When i connect to the PC/Laptop the same Huawei logo appears. Is there any way to flash the phone?.

    Your assistance is highly appreciated.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Can you boot your device into Fastboot mode? If yes, you can flash custom recovery from flashing using ADB.

    Help me
    My xolo a500l bricked so I download stock rom by so flash tool but it’s not working properly so what can I do?!!

  • Paul Vincent M. Gallego

    > My phone (non-removable battery) is stucked at the boot logo maybe due to the restoration of backup the I’ve done that leads me to no access of my custom recovery using combined keys. Whenever I tried to hold volume up and down it directs my phone to the two choices which are recovery mode and factory mode but by the time that I will be selecting the action to perform my phone will be doing again the same thing which is showing the logo over and over again instead of directing me to factory or recovery mode. Aside from that how am I suppose to go to “Download Mode” if my phone’s battery is non-removable?

    > Next Question: I already got my stock rom from our group on facebook but I can’t find the “scatter file” to be used for the sp flash tool. What should I do? My phone is limited edition (MyPhone Agua Iceberg Slim) and can’t find the proper files to flash over the net. Anyone who’s willing to help me? :'(

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Hey Paul,
      Here’s the proper Stock firmware for your device (MyPhone Agua Iceberg Slim): Download. It has the scatter file. Now talking about How to boot in download mode, Switch off your device. Load the scatter file in SP Flash tool & connect your device by pressing Power + Volume buttons(It works majority of the time).

      • Paul Vincent M. Gallego

        Thank you for the said file Devs-Lab Staff. But I guess it is too late already to recover my phone since it is no longer booting due to the action I had performed using sp flash tool. I don’t know what exactly the condition of my phone is. But I guess it can still be detected by my pc. By the way thank you again. :'(

  • yurt

    I want to ask a simple newbee question:
    Why are there two types or roms? One with scatter file type and other zip file type (contains meta file)?
    There are manty instructions for meta file type roms but my phone provides only scatter file type rom.
    Thank you for the answers

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      ROMs with Scatter files are flashed through PC using softwares like SP Flash Tool. While, zip files can be flashed through recovery mode available in device. If your device has too many roms with scatter files then use SP Flash tool to flash the ROM. You can refer the above method to flash ROMs too.

      Try this “Manually install the drivers by the method given above. Downloaded the original Stock ROM for your device. Load the scatter file in SP Flash Tool. Remove your phone’s battery & connect it to your PC. Keep your PC’s device manager open, you’ll see MTK Device (After connecting your device) As soon as you see it, Click on Download button. Once the process starts, it will get completed properly. (If you device keeps ejecting after connecting, first start the SP Flash Tool Download & it will show waiting for device. Now connect your device. Done)”

  • Almart

    Hola, tengo una Table Lenovo A1000F, me equivoque al actualizarla a la ultima versión, pero ahora cuando inicio todos los programas se congelan, me da el mensaje que desafortunadamente la applicación “x” se detuvo, pero así sucede con todas, no me deja hacer nada, aunque la reinicie me sigue dando el error, todas las aplicaciones se van cerrando una a una, incluso la que es para configurar la table, por lo tanto no me deja hacer nada. Ya traté metiéndome al menú de recovery en el cual borro la información y la caché (HARD RESET), acto seguido reinicio la tableta desde ahí mismo, prende bien, como si nada, se ve la imagen de fondo que venía de fábrica y aparece con la hora y bloqueada, pero al desbloquearla me empiezan a saltar todos los mensajes de error y sin poder entrar a la configuración de la table.
    Me gustaría saber si hay alguna forma de reinstalar la ROM a la table ya que no me permite hacer nada y aún haciéndole un HARD RESET desde el RECOVERY nada funciona. Quisiera saber si se puede instalar su ROM desde la SDCard, ya que tampoco me deja conectarme con el pc atraves de usb. Espero puedan ayudarme. Gracias.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Hey , si no quiere meterse con Flash Herramientas y todo, descarga de recuperación personalizada para su dispositivo y flash cualquier ROM . Si aún desea instalar Stock ROM, puede descargarlo desde aquí stock rom y siga el procedimiento anterior . Si no se detecta el dispositivo, intente instalar los controladores USB manualmente Let me haga saber si usted quedó atascado en cualquier paso .

  • Gabi Junior

    Its Urgent! Hi I am having this Tecno Boom J7 and I had a made a mistake by disconecting it while it was formating for I couldnt see the progress by then i got errors and I choose to mannually flash it. It formated completely but since then my phone is dead I have even tried to plug it in the whole night but there is no respond. It only display the red DA 100% bar on splash tool. Please help me. Much appreciation from Africa.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Most of the time, ejecting your device while flashing permanently bricks it! But if the device is still getting detected, you can try following the entire procedure again. Just connect your device & check in Device manager, if it shows any new device after connecting.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Manually install the drivers by the method given above. Downloaded the original Stock ROM for spice android one from here : Spice android one. Load the scatter file in SP Flash Tool. Remove your phone’s battery & connect it to your PC. Keep your PC’s device manager open, you’ll see MTK Device (After connecting your device) As soon as you see it, Click on Download button. Once the process starts, it will get completed properly. (If you device keeps ejecting after connecting, first start the SP Flash Tool Download & it will show waiting for device. Now connect your device. Done)

  • Aldo

    Sir, I just crashed my friend ALPS a9+ (landrover a9+). I tried to help him actually due to his phone infected by many virus and maleware. Unfortunately when I was flash a new custom rom (zenui 2 for mt 6582) using TWRP I forgot to copy and install the GAPPS (I guess the supporting file). So the phone had bootloop when the first time booting. And than I go back to TWRP again to restore the ROM that previously backup.. But I found some “unable issue” in that process.
    Now the phone unable to charge and the usb connector port has loose, hard to connect.

    I do need your help sir, so I would give the phone back to friend..

    Thank in advance..

  • Matt

    I find this article very helpful and i still sense hope in my bricked cherry mobile android one.. I tried to root it but after that, it won’t boot anymore, well it does obviously show light but no animation on screen just black. I tried this method but I don’t know how to find the scatter files for the stock rom because all i see are .tar files, im desperate for an answer.. I just need to know a download link for a stock rom of cherry mobile android one that has a scatter file and the needed recovery, android and bootimg. Appreciated your helpfulness

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Hey Matt,
      Don’t worry, you can fix this easily! As its an Android One device you can flashing other Android one’s Flash Tool file like Micromax Android one or Sparkle V.

      • Matt

        I’ve tried using the micromax’s flash file but as soon as i plug my phone in, it doesn’t seem to recognize the phone, YES i have installed the drivers but i think the problem is that the scatter file doesn’t match my phone because I’ve tried another scatter file which i downloaded and THAT specific one worked but then after the download, its still plain black screen. Im now downloading the sparkle V flash file, one question though, is it advisable to only pick the ‘download only’ option? What about the format all+download and firmware upgrade options?

      • Matt

        I got an error -> BROM ERROR: S_DA_NAND_BAD_BLOCK (3045) while flashing the micromax flash file

      • Matt

        Another new error -> PMT changed for the ROM; it must be downloaded.

    good day..regards from malaysia
    hello there..
    i own a ZTE Blade QLux.
    reading on some onlines tutorials, i made a stupid move. i did a format (auto format flash – format whole flash except bootloader). the sp tool said succees.
    then, my phone dead, even the red charging light not working. cannot turn on, cnt enter recovery..just DEAD.

    to make the senario worst, now my windows not detecting the phone (UNKNOWN DEVICE)

    what can i do now.thanks in advance

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      If you can get into fastboot mode, flash any working Recovery for your device through ADB. If your device doesn’t have any working recovery, Switch off your device & remove the battery. Install necessary drivers in your PC & connect your device to PC. Install VCOM drivers manually by following the above procedure to Install USB drivers. After installation, you’ll see Mediatek Mt65xx something in your device manager. Start SP Flash Tool & load the files, Click on Download. Done! (Make sure you use the correct Stock ROM or else it will permanently brick your device.) If you have any other queries, shoot us a mail at [email protected] Peace!

  • Susamay Kumbhakar

    Sir, I have mmx a76. I had bricked the device by flashing a recovery image (twrp.img) by a application. Then it promted to reboot the device. I do so. After rebooting it was stucked in boot. I’d few backups for the device. So, i went to recovery, there was CWM (i’ve flashed it about 3 months ago, that was perfet. TWRP was not flashed!) , then i try to restore my phone using those backups. But, opps! Saying flashing not completed/invalid file, then i try another bck up files. But same problem. After putting batery out then in, i get it to charge, but i saw that screen with battery symbol was turning on and off continously. After 3 hour i noticed, in which state i left the phone, that was same. The battery was not charging anymore.

    Now what to do? I have tried to flash using SPTool, but unfortunately the device was not detected any more.

    I’d sent the phn to mmx service center but they failed. They are saying that the IC of phn is faulty/damaged, and i have to replace it with 8thousand rs.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      First of all, calm down buddy! Its perfectly normally to brick your Android device at least once. 😀 Now first of all, Manually install the drivers by the method given above. Downloaded the original Stock ROM for MMX A76 from here : MMX A76 ROM. Load the scatter file in SP Flash Tool. Remove your phone’s battery & connect it to your PC. Keep your PC’s device manager open, you’ll see MTK Device (After connecting your device) As soon as you see it, Click on Download button. Once the process starts, it will get completed properly. (If you device keeps ejecting after connecting, first start the SP Flash Tool Download & it will show waiting for device. Now connect your device. Done)

    i found a stock rom for my device(not from the official site though) but while loading the scatter text it shows the following error
    initializing scatter file failed.please check the name of the scatter file which you load is legal.
    please tell me a possible solution

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      The scatter file might not be written by the Manufacturer. If you want, We can arrange the stock ROM for your ROM for free. 😀

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      Yes this method will work for your Micromax Unite 2 (A106) MTK6582 as it’s a mediatek device.

  • Akash

    i had installed philz recovery in my unite 2 lollipop but it was working very slow i.e., taking full backup takes at least 3 hrs. so i flashed another custom recovery zip through philz. as soon as the process started the phone switched off then on with boot image and animated black lines and again off and again on and goes on continuosly like this. now i can’t go to even recovery mode. its completely bricked. so will sp tools in windows 7 recognize my device??? i have installed adb drivers and mtk usb drivers.
    pls help me. also inform me if any other solution is present. also do i need to remove usb cable before reebooting if i get the green ring on pc??? if not, then do i need to insert the battery or not??? also if i will be successful then will my recovery also change to stock one??? pls answer all questions. i know you’ll get disappointed with so many questions but it can save me because i hv no money to buy a new phone. so pls reply soon.

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      You have hard bricked your device. Don’t worry! Its perfectly normally when you try different stuffs. 🙂 Now, have you removed your phone’s battery? Connect your device to your PC through USB (Make sure you have removed the battery). Then select preloader file & click on Download. Many of the users have reported USB cable getting ejected. For that, first Install all the necessary drivers, Open SP Flash Tool & load preloader file & click on Download. It will show “Waiting for device” connect your device now (Without battery). Now, the flashing process will begin. During this process, the mobile screen will lit up with Comapny’s logo. And yeah, your recovery will be replaced with the stock recovery. You will get a brand new mobile as you took it out of the box. Hope this helps!

    If the phone is soft bricked and usb debugging was not previously turned on, then how to install adb drivers. Because to install this, debugging has to be turned on, but as the phone cannot be booted, how to enable usb debugging or install adb drivers. Thanks

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      You don’t need to enable USB Debugging as your Phone is soft bricked. Once a phone gets soft bricked, PC detects the device in debugging mode only. After removing the battery, your phone operates in debugging mode.

    Hi, I flashed Android L on my Karbonn Titanium S5 plus and was working fine. Wanted to get back to the Stock ROM but erroneously flashed the S5 ROM through CWM. Now I do not get the back and Home touch keys on the screen. Hence I am not able to go back once i get on a screen and have to reboot. When I flash a different ROM zip file through CWM, it does not help. Took it to the Karbonn service center and they are stating that mother board has to be changed. I dont think that is needed as the phone boots. Can you help me?

    • Install the ADB drivers given above. Then open device manage od your computer and connect your phone to your pc through USB. See if any device pops up, if you see any new device flash the rom through sp flash tool. If you still don't see any device, install MTK6589 USB Preloader drivers. This would surely help !

    Dear Sir, I thank you very much for this nice helpful article. It saved me a lot . I have a Karbonn titanium S9 mobile , a few days ago I googled the web, and get to know that it can be rooted.So, I rooted it. It was working fine. I changed some system sounds, apps restarting restricted. But, yesterday I installed "Toolbox Lite" , from which I tried to change the system fonts. After that it prompted for Reboot. After reboot , the phone never came back !!! Only the boot animation, and thats it. My phone was dead, it was bricked !!

    After 6-7 hours of googleing , I tried following this article, and Used the stock rom of S9, and it worked !! It came back to life !!

    Hi Aditya,
    I have rooted & flashed cwm on my Titanium s9 with ur proper step by step guide. Thanks 4 nice works.
    Next step will be custom ROM… Before that I gone through ur this article & found it 'must know' for future. So tried it but after removal of battery I couldn't find anything like Mtk 6589(for s9). In switch on condition phone is detected as ADB & Titanium s9 also… But no battery no change in device manager [- …
    Is the process of stock ROM flash is different for s9? Also I have a lot of questions in my mind (just a biggener) for u bro… But it would be better one by one.

      Sorry for mistake of name… (It was the keyboard… auto correct)

    • Hey,
      This step is for those phone which doesn't respond to any activity likes completely dead. You have installed CWM as you mentioned above then you don't need to flash a rom through this method as its too complicated and is not meant for installing custom roms. Install Custom ROMS using this method : How to install custom ROMS I hope this helps you. You can find many roms for titanium S9 on this blog. Keep visiting !

      Hi Ajinkya,

      Yes i can find many roms on this blog. I think this is the only blog which provides complete solution for karbonn…. Thanks for ur time & support.
      But bro my volume key is not working at all so i can't navigate in recovery mod….. Is there any way, any app? I m dieing to flash a custom rom :))

    • Ya i have a solution for this download this App : Rebooter Grant root permissions to this app . Launch the app & Click on reboot to recovery. But before it Download this touch recovery : CTR Recovery
      How to flash this file :
      First download the file from the link & extract it on desktop….
      Then open the exe file…
      It will ask yes or no…
      Yes…for auto…
      No..for manually
      Then connect your phone to pc…
      And install drivers for your mobile..
      Then if you click on yes… it will ask for some root permission just give it…..
      If you click no…it will ask you to copy your stock "recovery.img" ….
      Then your phone will be rebooted into recovery..and that's done enjoy…!!!
      Hope this helps ! Keep visiting !

      Hi Ajinkya….
      Please Let me know one thing… I want to flash Android L rom. According to process you mentioned i have to wipe all data, cache & dalvic cache… after this can i remove my battery & restart phone to flash zip (because as you know touch do not work in my phone during recovery so i can't go back to flash zip at the same time).
      I just want to know after wiping all data, cache, dalvic cache will my phone boot safely? Is it safe to proceed like this way?
      Thanks 4 helping.

    • Yes it would work perfectly after doing Clear cache & data. What i recommend you is don't do all those stuffs as this rom works perfectly for Titanium S9 so directly install zip from SDcard. Hope this works, Keep visiting !

So, use some other usb cable & Open device manager Now connect your phone just keep looking in device manager & for the time a drive named as Mtk ** comes right click on it as select Install drivers Now locate the VCOM Drivers of Mtk6577 Once its installed open SP Flash Tool & locate the Preloader file.
