* Phone (Whether rooted or not)
* PC
* Installed MTK & Vcom Drivers ( See https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-440.html)
* SP Flash Tool ( Download @ https://hovatek.com/redirect.php?link=ht...sp=sharing )
* MTK Droid tools ( Download @ https://hovatek.com/redirect.php?link=ht...roid.tools )

Warning: Do NOT interrupt the read-back process else the phone wont power up for several hours


Procedure


# See the video tutorial below or @ http://youtu.be/CrpHIlcc43U







* Launch MTK Droid Tools

[Image: 1.jpg]

* Click Blocks Map

[Image: 2.jpg]

* In Blocks Map, focus on the Scatter and Size columns

[Image: 2.jpg]

* Click Create Scatter file and save the scatter file to a known location on the PC

[Image: 4.jpg]

* Launch SP Flash Tool

[Image: 5.jpg]

* Click Scatter Loading and select the scatter file you created above in the window that pops up

[Image: 6.jpg]

* Click Read Back at the top

[Image: 7.jpg]


Backing up / Dumping just one file / partiton ( e.g only boot.img )

* Click Add

[Image: 8.jpg]

* A new item (N/A) will be created in the white box below, ensure its ticked

[Image: 9.jpg]

* Double-click the newly created item and save it as Boot.img (we'll be copying just boot.img in this example)

[Image: 10.jpg]

* In the dialogue box, tick Hex. To get Start address, go back to the second step above and enter the value under the Scatter column for the file / partition you with to extract .  Since we're copying Boot.img , the value under scatter for Bootimg is 0002980000 that will be 0x2980000 . To get the Length , check under the Size column for the file / partition you wish to extract . for Bootimg as shown above, size is 0000600000  that will be 0x600000 then Click Ok . The trick is to replace all 0s before the first non-zero digit with 0x

* In the box, leave Hex ticked. For start address, leave it as it is (0x000.....) . For Length, enter the value under the Scatter column (see second step above) for FAT or Usrdata ( the very last item is recommended) . eg FAT is 0097140000 ( which is 0x97140000 )

[Image: 25.jpg]

* When prompted to make CWM Recovery automatically, click Yes or No . If you click Yes, you'll need to select the Recovery.img from the window that pops up

[Image: 26.jpg]
