How to turn your Jiake M8 (MT6580M quadcore processor, 512Mb memory and 2 Gb space)  to an Jiake G8 with 8Gb space.


First you need a rooted device.
If your device isn't rooted download Kingo Root here : https://www.kingoapp.com/


Go to settings > security and turn on Unknown sources.
Then go to settings > Developer options and turn on USB debugging.
Now take out the battery but let the phone connected to the PC.


install mtk vcom drivers onto your p.c. from link below


https://www.china-devices.com/files/file/55-mtk-usb-vcom-drivers-universal-all-windows-versions/


Download this files :
* Jiake G8 Firmware ( http://www.mediafire.com/download/j8t8589u4df6ojj/Jiake_G8_MT6580.rar )
* 4 Files that you need to flash after the first flash ( http://www.mediafire.com/download/q4gba1zhs9xw47j/M8_Original_files.rar )
* SP Flash Tool at http://spflashtool.com/


Start up SP Flash Tool as admin,then select/load the scatter file inside the Jiake G8 firmware folder and choose "firmware update".,(please be aware using 'firmware update will completely wipe your device backup all wanted files before you continue)



Now press the download button and put your battery in your phone.flashing process will start
Wait for a circle saying "Ok".


Try to start your phone : it won't :) You will hear startup sounds and you'll see al kind of stripes on the screen.
Now take your battery out again.


Restart SP Flash Tool as admin and select the scatter file in the G8 firmware folder again.
Now deselect all execept : boot.img , lk.img , logo.img and recovery.img
If you have done that change the location of the files to the folder with the 4 files. ( double click in the field under the "location" tab)
Choose again for firmware update and press download.
Now put your battery in your phone and let it flash and wait again for the circle with "ok".


Turn on your phone and see :)


Warning : do not try to replace the 4 files into the folder of the G8 firmware, for some strange reason it won't work !


I did try this with 2 phones and everything was ok, so why not helping other people ? :)

@Gammapooka


thank you for this awesome tutorial and fix for people...i edited the OP and added the link to the VCOM drivers as these are needed in order to connect with sp flash tools correctly,also added to run sp flash tools as admin as well as this will also cause issues when attempting to flash a rom


can you please edit this tutorial and place a warning that you are not responsible for anything which happends to peoples devices if they try this and it fails or bricks their devices....thank you


:laugh1:

Ok done ! :)
thanks mate...would not want anyone crying because they were not warned beforehand...LOL


any  chance you can add some screen shots especially for the 'location' part a lot of people will attempt this without realising they have to double click on the location tab and then navigate to the extra 4 files,maybe even instruct them to create a folder for these files and stick it on the desktop of their p.c. so thery do not get confused


the reason why i am suggesting all of this is because if people use this tutorial we will end up in a Q+A session as they attempt it step by step and this will save a little time answering questions....you do not have to do this but the more simple and easier the tutorial the less questions arise in the thread..... :clapping:


p.s. thread moved to the tutorial section
