[Tutorial] How to unbrick / fix a bricked HTC Clone Android phone

(This post was last modified: 06-01-2016, 10:56 PM by X3non. )

If your HTC clone Android phone has been bricked then this guide will teach you how to easily unbrick it. The exact procedure you'll use depends on the chipset of the phone. For original HTC phones, see https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-10354.html

How to determine if a HTC Clone is Mediatek or Spreadtrum

If the phone can boot to home screen then Antutu Benchmark or CPU-Z can tell you the chipset powering the phone. If the phone is bricked / can't boot to home screen then you can confirm what kind of chipset is powering the phone by launching Device Manager and connecting the phone to the PC while switched off. Device manager should refresh. If it gets detected as ***Mediatek*** then its a Mediatek (MTK) phone. If detected as ***SCI*** then its a Spreadtrum (SPD) phone.  

How to unbrick a HTC Clone Mediatek Android phone

* Download the firmware @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-13288.html
* Install Mediatek Preloader VCOM drivers on the PC using https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-440.html
* Flash the firmware to the phone using SP Flash tool @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-159.html

How to unbrick a HTC Clone Spreadtrum Android phone

* Download the firmware @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-13288.html
* Install Spreadtrum USB drivers on the PC using https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-827.html

I have access to a working phone of the same model, can I use it to unbrick my phone?

Yes, you have two options in this case:
1. Flash a custom recovery to both phones > Backup the working phone in recovery > Restore to the bricked phone
2. Backup the working phone using https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-468.html for Mediatek and https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-854.html for Spreadtrum then flash using the tools mentioned above
