Have you been seeing Select boot mode when you try booting your MTK Android phone? Well, some MTK users have complained about their MTK Android phones not booting normally when they press the power button. Instead, their phones boot straight into boot mode with the cursor / arrow  automatically scrolling up and down, thereby, not allowing to select any option. Phones in such a situation also can't boot into recovery mode.  Many of such cases are linked to faulty boot / recovery partitions. If you're experiencing such, here are some things you could do.

1. Check the volume buttons

The volume buttons might be sticky. Try holding down both volume buttons before pressing the power button. You cloud also try connecting the phone to a PC (while the PC is on ) before pressing the power button

2. Format the Memory card

The phone might be having trouble accessing the memory card. Try formatting the memory card

3. Flash a fresh stock ROM using SP flash tool

* Flash the stock ROM using SP flash tool ( See  https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-159.html ) .
* Ensure to format first (DONT format Bootloader) then flash the files

4. Flash a fresh stock ROM using CWM Recovery mode

* Boot the phone into factory mode (volume down + power)
* Flash clockworkmod recovery image to the phone (see  https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-455.html)
* Boot into clockworkmod / stock recovery mode then wipe cache and factory reset
* If still stuck at brand logo, restore a clockworkmod (CWM) backup to the phone

5. Flash a fresh stock ROM using AIO flasher

* Launch MTK droid tools and click adb terminal
* Connect the phone to PC while in boot mode (volume down + power)
* In adb terminal, type adb devices then press enter
* Type adb reboot bootloader then press enter
* The phone should boot into fastboot mode
* Launch AIO flasher
* Flash the files using AIO Flasher (See https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-466.html )

Instead, their phones boot into recovery or factory mode (shows a selectable list of boot mode, Recovery mode, Fastboot, Normal mode etc) with the cursor / arrow automatically scrolling up and down, thereby, not allowing to select any option. Don't fret, the Tecno phone isn't bricked; the volume down (decrease) button or volume up (increase) is just sticky and you need to lift / loosen it. To confirm that the volume button(s) is / are faulty, connect the phone to a working PC then try powering the phone on again. A PC connection automatically overrides the effect of both volume buttons. If the phone comes on normally then you have a confirmation that one of the volume buttons is faulty. In many cases, holding both volume buttons before pressing the power button helps the phone boot into normal mode. If this doesn't help, take a look at both volume buttons.

My android phone is not booting into recovery mode, it only boot factory mode automatically when I insert the battery. I have tried all my possible best, connecting to PC, checking the both volume button and other, but the phone continue to boot into factory mode any time I power it on and sometimes it power itself Mean while one of my android phone is not booting into recovery mode, it only boot factory mode automatically when I insert the battery and boot into factory mode each time I inserted the battery into the phone. Anytime I press the power + home + volume up button simultaneously, i will not just power on at all until i release my hand. Any help pls!
