Hey guys, here is a short tutorial on how to make a scatter file for all mtk based smartphones.


brought to you by Gizbeat ! Check it out here : Gizbeat !


you should definitly give it a try if your scatter is not working !


You need:

Steps:

  • Step 1 - Enable USB debugging on your smartphone in settings - developer options.
  • Step 2 - Install the VCOM drivers manually or with PDA net
  • Step 3 - Download, extract, and run the latest version of MTK Droid Tools. (run as admin!)

  • Step 4 - Your phone should be on at this point. Connect the data USB cable to your phone and wait about 10 seconds. Eventually you should see the phone's information come up.
  • Step 5 - Click 'blocks map'. A new window should open with all your phone's block information and where each portion of your firmware is stored on ROM.

  • Step 6 - Click 'create scatter file'. Navigate to where you want to save it. Save it in a place where you won't lose it. If you need it for flashing firmware, save it in the folder of the firmware. If you need it for flashing a recovery, save it in the folder with the recovery.

    Now you can use your new created scatter to flash your smartphone with sp-flash tools

hi,


What about the new 64 bit mtk8752 ? Because i tried and couldn't do anything. the scatter's tab is grey.  


Thanks
hey jamie,


mtk droid tools has not been updated to configure 64bit SoC yet you can either try a modded version,download a stock rom with scatter or try itxtutors ADB tutorial...but the tutorial still will not create a scatter file for you...and what is 'mtk8752'...is that a new tablet...?

Hello mrsim,


I will be partial about this tab. Just because i feel alone with it.


No soft working yet with it.


And since i received the tablet, it was unable to be update.



Something seems broken and i have errors message as "Installation aborted" or failed"






Or  another message like "Your system is damaged, making wireless update disabled! " But my wireless works.


I tried with OTA and data gsm. It doesn't work.



As you can see i'm not satisfied by this product.


Perhaps will it be ok in the future. but for now.......Spitoutdummy

For example, MTKdroid_2.5.3d and SP Flash Tool don't work and i didn't find a soft to do the job.I have contacted Cube's support but they just gave me a rom   T9_V1.02_20141121 but it didn't fix anything.


So i go on looking for a solution.


About the Play-Store everything is ok.


however, This tablet seems to be  good.


The battery is good. GPS and phone work correctly.


But if you try, outside, to see a movie, you can't. Because of the daylight .

hi KingOfNoobs,


Thank you for your response.


I succeed with an old program named "Android AIO Flasher". I took some elements from the stock rom and i restored them with this program in "fastboot" mode.


The tablet recovered all it's function and i was able to update it to the last version.


However it doesn't work propely......


Thank you for the link.

hi mrsim,


As the tablet had too  many problems, i flashed it with the latest version of sp flash tool. Thank you for the link :emoticon-0137-clapping: (SP flash tool needs the Mediatek usb vcom drivers to work)


Now everything seems to be good.


I just wonder about the reboot which begins in chinese, stop and then reboot in the language i choose.


I really want to thank you for your help. :emoticon-0150-handshake:

i did everything as stated above, but i couldnt create scatter file because the option wasnt highlighted. after clicking blocks map i couldnt go further. the next option was impossible to click. only the return button was available for clicking

ok then mtk droid tools will not work for you...it is very old software and the newer SoC like yours have never been configured to work with it,i would suggest trying to track down the stock romfor this device online...also try contacting the seller or any seller selling this device and see if they have a stock rom they can help you with
