Thanks a lot. I finally found out how to enter recovery but the problem I have now is that when I select "update from SD", it tells me aborted. I later found out it was because I have stock recovery and not custom recovery. Please how do I get a working custom recovery so that when I enter recovery mode I can successfully apply update from SD?? Please help.

Thanks

No, I'm not saying the one in this thread dosent have scatter file. I downloaded the one in the first link and it has scatter file. It dosent work for me as the phone still goes to stock recovery. I meant the file you shared in thread: https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-4531.html it doesn't have scatter file, I wanted to try it if it would work
