[Please help] Need help to backup stock rom of Vodacom Power Tab 10
Hello and great job on this wonderful and helpful site to all of us MTK android users. I am at the same boat as brother Fingers7606 but I must have the Greek version of the tablet the Fingers has, I have the Vodafone Smart Tab grand 6 10.1 inches,
Android 5.1, rooted with Kingroot v4.9.3, busybox pro 50 installed
My aim is to root the tablet and have supersu so that's why I'm trying to use a custom recovery.
I have tried Kingroot v4.9.3 which I got now and working with but 2 months ago I used supersume app to remove it but instead it bricked it (bootloop, hard reset didn't fix it) and I had to sent it to Vodafone to fix it so I'm trying to be very careful now. I read in XDA I think that Kingroot intentionally bricks the devices if you try to replace it with SuperSu.
I have managed to do a backup with Miracle box (https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-13347.html) which to my understanding is the tool like flashing kdz to LG phones but it instead reads from tablet.
I have done a full backup (ticked all the boxes) and I have a question, can I use the "Write" instead of "Read" in Miracle box to restore the tablet if it's bricked? Or it won't work and it'll need repair again?
From MT6580_Android_scatter.txt file created by Miracle box:
Quote:- general: MTK_PLATFORM_CFG
and from build.prop:
CPU-Z reports SoC "MediaTek MT6580"
Block Info from MTK:
as you can see I can't create a scatter file from there
Trying to make a recovery with "To use boot from phone":
Trying to make a recovery with boot.img (renamed from .bin from Miracle Box backup), Yes to "make CWM recovery automatically":
I've sent hovatek my boot.bin and recovery.bin created by Miracle Box by PM to examine them and tell me what to do next

Been a while since I posted here... Anyway here is some feedback:
I finally managed to do a complete backup of my Rom using miracle and now I have the same question as someoneXgr. Can I use Miracle Box to flash my stock rom back onto my device(if need be) and will the scatter file created with Miracle box work with SPF Tool(will I have to change anything to have it work with SPF Tool)?

Yes you can write the backup https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-13894.html
You can use spflashtool but you will need to rename them appropriately see here https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-13600.html
You only need to replace scatter file if yours doesn't load in spflashtool
