Hello, great job on this wonderful and helpful site to all of us MTK android users and sorry for posting in the wrong thread. I have the Vodafone Smart Tab grand 6 10.1 inches,
Android 5.1, rooted with Kingroot v4.9.3, busybox pro v50 installed
My aim is to root the tablet and have supersu and Xposed 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
- config_version: V1.1.1
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
