How to use SP flash tool to flash a stock rom


This tutorial is to teach you how to use SP flash tool(Smart Phone flash tool) to flash a stock rom.



To flash a rom,you will need:



-The mtxxxx preloader drivers



The “xxxx” is the model of processor in your device,you can check it in the specifications list of your device here.Then get the drivers you need here. 


-SP flash tool

Download latest version here

-A stock rom

Download Doogee roms here.

-A USB cable

-Your device

-Patience

Some of the steps may need you to try many times,please be patient!


I am using a Doogee F5 to do this tutorial.The steps are the same to other Doogee models.


Note:Please do not use any Rom that is not specified for your device,otherwise it will brick your device.


1.Get necessary drivers and install them



The package should contain files shown as below.






Just leave them for a while.Go to step 2.


2.Clear all the existing drivers that are relative to MediaTek


Search USBDeview on Google and download the latest version.Use it to uninstall all MediaTek drivers that have been installed before.






Right click on the driver,then click Uninstall Selected Devices from the list.










3.Install the mtxxxx preloader drivers.



Right click InstallDriver.exe - Run as administrator.






The program will run automatically and finish the installation like this.






Right click Computer - Manage -Device Manager






In Device Manager,choose one of the groups,then click on Action - Add legacy hardware 






Click Next






Choose Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced)






Show All Devices - Next






Click Have Disk and browse the driver file 






Locate file in the mt67xx preloader driver folder,access the following folder according to the operating system of your computer





For Win 7 32-bit system, select usb2ser_Win7.inf


Win 7 64-bit system,select usb2ser_Win764.inf






Select MediaTek Preloader USB VCOM Port,click Next






Start the installation,click Next






Finish the installation






Check Device Manager,there should be the MediaTek preloader driver






Note


* If SP flash tool or other software still don’t detect your phone then also install MediaTek DA VCOM (consider installing more from the list of drivers one at a time if need be)


* If you get the code 10 error after the installation, simply ignore it and proceed with SP flash tool. You're only getting that error because the driver is not digitally signed.






4.Start to flash a rom


Right click the tool - Run as administrator






Click Scatter loading button






Choose the scatter.txt file.It is located in the ROM folder,which is extracted from the stock ROM downloaded from Doogee website









Choose Download Only in the setting,then click Download





Now connect your phone to PC via a USB cable,make sure the battery has been removed.If the battery is unremovable,just keep the phone shut down.


If no reaction after connecting,disconnect the phone,press the volume+ button then connect the phone again until it works.This step may take you several times to achieve.












If the phone is detected correctly,the status bar will run by itself.



Wait until the process is done.






This means you have flashed the stock rom successfully.Congratulations!





If you are still not understand the steps,you can check this tutorial video provided by a Youtube user named Techmagnet.

not sure the problem does not apply to other models but only F7 Pro?? Do not select "format all and upgrade", this will end up loosing the IMEI number. Choose either Download or Firmware Upgrade

Looks good - until I put back the battery in and try to boot. I get the logo, it flashes / fades, then it stays constant. No android UI, nothing. Tried it multiple times, no success. How to proceed? I took the T3 20161013 version for my T3. Tried it with different USB-Ports, I get different VCP COM-Assignments, but the result is always the same.



One thing might be interesting: In the spflash it says "MT6753" in the T3 update rar it says for some files e.g. ... MT6735 ... - is this relevant?



Thanks!

Hi,did you download the rom and usb vcom driver in the forum?They can be found in "Firmware Download".Did you see "ok" after the flashing done?

I tried to start this tutorial as the topic suggested but some options are not the same because i am using windows xp pro for example the legacy hardware option and in the end the scatter file is always invalid. Any ideas how to move on ? Can we update it from the local updates in our phone ? I tried but the version remains the same.

Quick question  - should Windows 10 users also select the Windows 7 mt67xx VCOM? After installing the Preloader Driver it does not show up in my Device Manager list under Ports.







Also, I used USBDeview to check if it was there, and I can see mt65xx Preloader, not mt67xx! (I made sure to download the mt67xx from the link you provided)










EDIT: After disabling Driver Signature Enforcement the MediaTek drivers now show up on the list after installing again. HOWEVER, using the SP Flash Tool I get Error 8417 'The load scatter file is invalid!'. I've tried multiple versions of the SP Flash Tool. How do I solve this?







EDIT 2: I appear to have solved it by removing the Chinese characters and reducing the length from the folder name of the ROM.
