MTK BACKUP ISSUE
#1

Good day,

Following our chats on bbm, I followed the guide on "How to make an MTK Droid tools backup of an MTK Android phone - See more at: http://forum.hovatek.com/thread-468.html...8Ps3J.dpuf " . I was able to install Pdanet application successfully but I'm having trouble with the MTK Droid Tools application.

The attached document is a pictorial image of the error message displayed when trying to backup.

Kindly advise.

Thanks

What you have in the image is "Unknown ROM structure, backup not possible"

I see you were trying to backup a Tecno N3 (which is Spreadtrum based) using MTK droid tools which is for MTK phones. that won't work.

What about this sandwich custom ROM as seen in your forum: http://forum.hovatek.com/thread-44.html#...haruz.dpbs (i.e. Eblak_N7_v1)

we didn't develop that. but a number of developers have accused it of being just a build.prop edit. although we haven't looked into it ourselves. you could try it though but ensure you make a CWM backup before flashing any ROM

Thanks for your response again and again. What do you mean by "a build.prop edit"? Also, can I still do a CWM back up if I could not do an MTK backup?

Thanks

a build.prop edit means to change values displayed by your phone. e.g making the phone display Android 5.0 when it's actually running on 2.2 by editing a file named build.prop
If you have flashed CWM recovery to your phone then you can make a CWM backup

I have not done that yet. Do I still follow the process as stated in this link: http://forum.hovatek.com/showthread.php?...JLfY1.dpuf to flash CWM recovery?

Thanks
