Other methods you could consider are MTK Droid tools @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-468.html (root required) and SP Flash tool Readback / ROM dump @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-526.html (root not required)

Requirements

* Download Miracle Box @ https://hovatek.com/redirect.php?link=ht...t=download
* PC
* USB cord
* Manually install Mediatek VCOM drivers (see https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-440.html )

Procedure

See the video tutorial below or @ https://youtu.be/_rIXJ4eSxgg





1. Extract the Miracle Box zip into a folder and launch Miracle loader exe

5a. If you want the backup saved in an SP Flash tool friendly format (with a scatter file) then tick Save as scatter file.

6. Click the Start button

7. You should now see >> Waiting for USB Port at the bottom left corner. Connect the phone to the PC (must be switched off still with battery inside) then press the Power button just once (this is to ensure that your device is detected immediately). DO NOT hold down the power button else the phone will boot up normally

8. If you did not tick Save as scatter file, a box should pop up. Navigate to the location you wish to save the firmware (in .bin format) then click Save

8a. If you ticked Save as scatter file then a box should popup asking you to select which block / partition you would like to backup. Tick all if you want a full firmware backup / dump or tick only what you need to backup then click OK

8b. Navigate to the location you wish to save the files to then click OK

11. Disconnect then power on the phone

Note

For the scatter backup, you can rename the file extensions in order to use them in SP flash tool, e.g recovery.bin to recovery.img

1. Power Off Phone , Remove Battery, Insert Battery Back
2. Insert USB cable. In some cases Required Hold BootKey
3. Use Miracle Boot Key In cases Boot key not Find
4. Battery Should be Charged more then 50%

Ok Well.
First of all. thanks that it's showing some hope to backup 64bit MT67xx devices.
Second. The loader file is detected as Virus by the AVG antivirus. But I have added it as an exception to ignore it. Is it alright to use it?
Third. Miracle Box is now running without any issues. But it couldn't catch my phone in time.. I am sure the Preloader VCOM drivers are perfectly installed on all of the USB ports on my laptop. and it works fine with SP Flash Tool when I need to flash anything. I have also verified in the Device Manager when the correct device appears for a few seconds on connecting the phone (turned off) as you know the preloader time period until the phone goes to charging mode. Just in case, I am attaching the screenshot where you can see the Phone appears in the Device Manager in Preloader Mode but the Miracle Box on the other side can't detect it. And yes I can't remove the battery as it's fixed. The device is Infinix Note 2 LTE, MT6753
The laptop has 3 USB ports as you can see in the device manager all of the three are good with the preloader VCOM drives on COM1, COM4, and COM7. All of them work fine but Miracle Box doesn't appear to see them

Hello.,
I am no expert on this, but I had just discovered this program one week ago. But I was having same problems as you. Not that it matters but, my phone has an mt6735. Your drivers show (Android) at the end. And I had that too, I thought that was correct. It is not. Those drivers do or should work in spft but do not work in miricle box. I have not completely solved my problem but I do have a method that works for me.
First off i had to do the manuely installed drivers method, then uninstall and delete the ones with (Android) on the end. Then I can connect one time to miricle box. The manually installed driver shows up and phone connects to miricle.

But then if I connect a second time the (Android) driver is back. I haven't figured that one out yet , anyway.

Hope this works for you too.
