but the create scatter file is not active.
the scatter file i downloaded is showing
1 PRELOADER 0X. with serial no. continuing down

means MTK Droid tools doesn't support your device

After I tried the scatter file generation with MTK Droid and MiracleBox without any success, I am trying to create it manually.

Your example scatter file for my MT8127 (https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-12724.html) contains a FAT partitions which isn't on my device, OK, I will delete it the entire partition.

But I have a "custpack" partition with ext4 and mountpoint.
As I see there are other ext4 partitions (android,cache,usrdata) with the exact same properties (like type, is_reserved,operation_type, etc)
Can I add a new partition with the proper partition_index?

remove the FAT from the list.
You can add a new partition so far you get the details right

One last question:
I have a bmtpool partition which start at 0x1500000 and end at 0x2A00000 (the size is 0x1500000)...

but this section contains also the protect_s, seccfg, uboot and part of bootimg partition too. Did I make a mistake in my calculation?

Port CWM, Carliv or Philz recovery instead

I have a Lenovo Vibe B (MT6735M) on Android 6.0 on order. Will it be compatible with this method? If not, are there any alternative methods?

Thanks
