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)

Note

* If you get the inactive start button error when using Miracle, then see https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-14815.html

Requirements

* Download Miracle Box v2.27a + Loader @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-15700.html
* 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

9. Wait while Miracle Box begins backing up the phone. If you did not tick Save as scatter file, it should look something like

10. Once backup has been completed, you should see a Done message

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

Hi. I've downloaded the miracle box,installed the driver but yet when I connect my w3 lte to the system it just shows the charging thingy and miracle box doesn't detect the device. Pls help.

Thanks for the guide will be using it soon, once phone gets here.

I have to change date to get start button to work, I have tried the other two methods changing and delete Handle.ini, but doesn't work.

Anyway to make this permanent? Each time my date is set to correct date The start button stops working.

Sorry, for now there's no valid means of permanently fixing the start button.
you'll just have to stick with backdating your PC's date

its due to miracle box incomplete backup process you need to make sure the backup was successful I.e 100% to get all necessary files including the scatter text

This is so useful. thanks for sharing. For personal data backup, Android Manager is also a great tool to consider.

Uninstall VCOM Drivers and reinstall also make sure you disabled drivers signature verification, see guide https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-752.html, if error persist then retry on another pc.
