You can flash it using SP flash tool. No need to flash it via bootloader

That's secure boot. You'll need a custom DA file
Try SP flash tool v5.1532.00 first

try loading the auth file in the attachment below in SPft authentication file then retry flashing [use latest SPft version]
lets know the outcome

here's another alt. you might have, cause i believe oppo firmwares rarely come in scatter format so this rom you have must have been dumped using a dongle. edit the scatter file using any text editor and see if you can find the tool used to create this rom dump. at least you'll be able to tell which dongle has support for this model

I'm using the stock rom provided on the forum. The auth file won't load. error is "invalid auth file".
Is there a way to get a pre-rooted rom in .ozip format that I can install using the colorOS recovery?
