  • Right-click flash_tool.exe > Select Properties > Select Compatibility > Set to Windows XP Service Pack 3 > Click Apply > Click OK > Run SP flash tool as Administrator
  • Try a different USB cord
  • Try a different port on the PC or another PC
  • Ensure the battery is well changed and inside the switched off phone before connecting to PC for flashing
  • Do not hold any button when connecting to PC

PMT changed for the ROM


Message: PMT changed for the ROM; it must be downloaded

Meaning: The partition table about to be written (from the scatter file) is different from the phone's current partition table layout

Solution:
  • Ensure that the scatter file / files you're trying to flash are actually for your exact model
  • If you're trying to flash just a few files and not the firmware then you need to get the firmware to complement and then flash using download only
  • If you're trying to flash the full firmware then try using the Firmware Upgrade option or Format first before download only

Hi, what does it mean when the phone behaves like this:

1) I turn off power with the phone not connected to USB
2) I click "Download" in SP Flash
3) I connect the phone to USB
4) The phone displays the battery icon below that is not the normal charging icon:

5) After 10 seconds the phone reboots to the frozen TECNO screen:

6) The phone gets into a boot loop.
7) SP Flash displays the error:

For the battery icon, You'll need to manually install vcomm drivers. See the main post for instructions on how to do that. Also, what version of SP flash tool are you using?

I Installed the MTK drivers labeled "MT6577 USB VCOM drivers". I'm not sure these are correct since the phone is 6572. After installation I get the same behavior when I try flashing recovery. I turned on tracing and got the following log messages:

1. There's an cable communication problem between FlashTool and BootROM.

1. Try again.

3. Monitor if power-drop occured in target side.)((APCore::Connection::ConnectDA,..\QT_FlashTool_Refactor\Conn\Connection.cpp,127))(..\QT_FlashTool_Refactor\UI\src\BackgroundWorker.cpp,94)

Looks like SP flash tool is having problems communicating / connecting to your phone.
1. Are you sure you switched off the phone > clicked download > clicked ok when prompted then connected the switched off phone still with battery inside?
2. You need to install mt6572 vcomm drivers else SP flash tool will be blind to your phone
3. Consider changing the USB cord and also PC port you're using
4. Make sure SP flash tool is set to auto-detect com port, not manual selectiom
5. Try SP flash tool v. 3.1328

Thanks, I shall try this and get back to you.

Oh, and I couldn't find the mt6572 vcomm drivers. The link on this forum goes to a facebook page that doesn't seem to have the drivers.
