boot.img , EBR1, logo.bin, MBR, Mt6572_Android_scatter, preloader.bin, recovery.img, system.img

good. Now flash these files to your phone (that's the ones inside the !files to flash folder) . To do this, ensure to load scatter files from the !files to flash folder which contains preloader.bin . lets know how it goes

I flash these files to my phone but that stay the same screen!

hi, just want to share something, maybe ur fone's not meeting the requirements of the rom, ,some rom required resolution , maybe ur fone resolution is wvga and the rom is for qhd or vise versa, ,jus like mine.

Phone is totally dead

Message: Phone no longer responds to power button

Solution: Follow this guide @ http://forum.hovatek.com/showthread.php?tid=286

Phone still not working after flashing

Message: Phone still stuck at Bootlogo

Solution: 
* Give up to 5 minutes because first boot takes time
* Boot the phone into recovery mode then wipe data / factory reset
* Remove the battery for 30 seconds then slot back in
* Try a firmware upgrade . use MTK droid tools version 2.3.0 to backup usrdata & cache or copy then from the clockworkmod backup
* Try a firmware / ROM from another source

Phone shows white screen, strange colors or divided screen after flashing

Message: You can see the phone responding to buttons and making sound but all is blurred by white screen

* Solution: The ROM / Firmware you flashed is incompatible, get from another source (especially boot.img , logo.bin and uboot.bin / lk.bin )

Phone automatically disconnecting during flashing

Message: The phone makes the disconnecting sound just as flashing begins, interrupting the process

Solution: 
* Try a different USB cord and USB port
* Try Flashing the ROM without battery inside the phone
* Try holding down the Volume decrease (you could try volume increase or both) while connecting the phone to PC for flashing

Sp Flash tool remains at 0%

Message: Phone only shows charging sign

Meaning: Necessary drivers have not been successfully installed on the PC

Solution: 
* Follow this guide @ https://hovatek.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=440  to manually install vcom drivers

Error 5054

Message:  BROM ERROR S_DL_GET_DRAM_SETTINGS_FAIL (5054) please check your load matches your target which is to be downloaded

Meaning: The files you're trying to flash do not belong to or are not compatible with the phone you're trying to flash them to

Solution: 
* Ensure you're using the correct files. If you're sure they are, then try formatting before flashing again

Initialize scatter failed

Message: Error: Initialize scatter file failed. Please check the scatter file name you load is legal

Meaning: SP Flash tool doesn't accept the name format of your scatter file

Solution: 
* Ensure the scatter file wasn't renamed. If you're certain it wasn't, try a higher version of SP Flash tool

Error 8038

Message: Error 8038! Android download  pmt is ready and layout has been changed

Meaning: SP Flash tool is having trouble writing to certain partitions due to some incompatibility 

Solution: 
* Format the phone in SP flash tool (Do not format Bootloader) then try flashing the files again using Download
* If Download doesnt work then do a firmware upgrade
* If the MTK backup contains more than one scatter file, retry flashing with the other scatter file.
* If that isn't feasible, try formatting first or use firmware upgrade
* If that doesn't work, open the scatter file using Notepad++ and change __NODL_FAT to FAT by removing "__NODL_" . 


Error 4032

Message: BROM ERROR : S_FT_ENABLE_DRAM_FAIL (4032) [EMI] Enable DRAM fail

Meaning: SP Flash tool is unable to enable DRAM / communicate effectively with the device

Solution: 
* Ensure that the file(s) you're trying to flash are actually for your exact phone model
* Uninstall vcom,  preloader and MTK drivers using usbdeview then manually re-install using  https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-440.html
* Delete the sp flash tool folder then re-extract
* Ensure the phone is switched off (with battery still inside) before connecting to PC for flashing.
* If that doesn't work, keep  holding  down the volume decrease button just before connecting the phone to PC for flashing (you could try volume increase , power + volume decrease or power + volume increase).
* Consider using the latest version of Sp Flash tool
* Format the phone before trying to flash the file(s) again


Error 5056

Message: BROM ERROR : S_DL_PMT_ERR_NO_SPACE (5069)

Meaning:  The size of a file is larger than the available / possible partition size

Solution: 
* Ensure that the file(s) you're trying to flash are actually for your exact phone model
* Try another stock ROM

Error 4001


Message: S_FT_DA_NO_RESPONSE or 

Meaning: SP flash tool is having difficulty communicating with the device

Solution:  
* Change the USB-port and transfer SP Flash Tool to the root of your main hard drive ( C: ) then run as admin
* Ensure to install the correct drivers (see  https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-440.html )


Sp flash tool was successful but phone's calibration doesn't work

Message: Soft keys and touch screen don't work / respond

Solution:
* Edit the scatter file using Notepad++ and remove NODL__  (or set is_download: false to is_download: true ) in front of the items you have in the backup folder but aren't listed when you load the scatter file in SP flash tool. This way, these items will become listed when  next you load the scatter file (after saving of course) and therefore flashable
