[Tutorial] How to fix an MTK Android phone that wont come on after interrupting SP Flash tool
#1
(This post was last modified: 05-18-2017, 02:54 PM by X3non. )

This guide is for MTK devices like Tecno, Gionee, Micromax, Infinix, Opsson, etc

If you dont know how to flash files using SP flash tool, follow this guide @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-159.html


If you wish to do a read back / ROM dump using Sp flash tool, follow this guide @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-526.html


What you should know about SP flash tool is that you shouldn't interrupt a flash or read back process. If you do, the phone will go off and not come on at all. You might get the "USB device not recognized" error on further flashing attempts. If somehow, the process got interrupted and you now have a totally dead phone on your hands, don't panic. All you need to do is connect the phone to a computer (via a USB cord) or power source and leave it to charge for some time. It could take up to two hours but once the phone is revived, your battery could read as low as 1% . just leave it to keep charging before powering it up. 


Tips to speed things up

* Remove the battery > Connect the phone to a charger without battery inside > Slot in the battery while the phone is still connected to the charger 
* You could keep pressing the Volume up + Power button while charging
* You could remove and boost the battery using a desktop / external charger then resume internal charging.
* Uninstall then re-install MTK preloader vcom drivers using this guide @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-440.html

. Just got my tecno P9 and was in the process of rooting to partition app space and though I was afraid initially but with the attention I got from hovatec I went on. Just using SP flash tool for read back/flashing I accidentally disconnected my P9. That was about 5 day ago. The phone went dead and hovatec asked me to keep charging. Today after charging I just tried to start it again and it came on with 3%. my phone came back to life again today and I am willing to continue the process and with more care this time. Just think I should put this here to encourage someone not to panic

if the battery is removable then try using a desktop charger to boost. else, try charging with a PC then switch to wall charger and switch again at 1 hour interval
