Brick / SPF refuses loading Preloader.bin - Xer0 - 09-18-2016

I've a 5S Clone with MT6572 i wanted to flash with aosp Android
Something went wrong and now it does not turn on anymore...

Have a ReadBack-Backup with preloader.bin,
but when i load the scatter, all rows in SPF dont have files
when i click preloader and add preloader.bin, it errors out:
'please check if load file is valid' or so
all other files load and flash fine when done manually

What version of SP flash tool are you using?
Try using the latest


RE: Brick / SPF refuses loading Preloader.bin - Xer0 - 09-19-2016

I have v3.1224.0.100, v5.1524.00.000, v5.1628_Win

v3 won't load the scatter at all, both v5 can but lack preloader.bin

and i can flash a MT6850 ROM incl. preloader to my other phone with both v5

How was this scatter file created? I need the exact steps.
ideally, you shouldn't have to manually load each file
