How To Use SP Flash Tool 5.1 For Flashing MTK Devices

Quick Tip Day

I finally downgraded my Lenovo Yoga 8 to Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 just now and I made use of the new SP Flash Tool 5.1 for MTK based phones and tablets.

It was pretty easy to use.

Click here to download SP Flash Tool 5.1 then extract the contents of the file to a preferred location on your PC.

Run the file flash_tool.exe

Click on scatter-loading and select your MT6589_Android_scatter_emmc.txt file

Make sure all listed files are checked and if any isn’t double click on it and select the appropriate file

Make sure your Lenovo device or any other MTK based device is completely switched off  then connect it to your PC and the flashing process will commence immediately.
