    Lots Of time we faces a problem when working with sptool when we flash mtk androids..so frnds we discuss and share here sptool problems/errors..why it happens..and what is its solution...

    There is some mode in mtk for connect phone to pc,read below to know more

    =: BOOTROM :=

    (in Device Manager is usually seen as MTK USB Port with pid = 003).

    In order to connect your phone in this mode,we need some key combinations,like vol up + cable connect or home button + cable connect,we have to keep try until we found correct key for this
    Sometime we need special cables or test points to get this mode.


    =:preloader :=
    (Port MediaTek USB VCOM with pid = 2000).
    Its most common mode in mtk android phones,when we trying to flash phone using sptool and connect phone in power on phone condition to usb,phone connect as preloader

    Is it sometime hard to install drivers in this mode,as its quickly disappear,but its not much hard if you faster then your pc
    Just kidding you should install driver from exe base installer


    =: DA_HIGHSPEED :=

    (Port MediaTek DA USB VCOM with pid = 2001).
    Ok when you flash your phone,you connect first in bootrom mode or in preloader,as sptool detect your phone,its give command to phone for DA_Highspeed download,to load the firmware in phone.
    So it will always good to check drivers when flashing phone with sptool,if sptool giving error after the first red line,you should check for Da drivers.
    ================================================== ========


    =: Guide How To Disable DA Download All :=

    Sometimes off mode DA Download All helps to avoid errors on phones with MTD (nand) flash. The latest versions of FT this can not be done from the menu, you must change the file platform.xml (Inside sptool flasher). You need to change in the platform of your phone keys usb_download_support and da_dl_all_support to "true" to "false" Warning! This only works if not marked daw blocks preloader and dsp_bl! If you need to sew the blocks, it is necessary to put true!

    After these changes, you must connect the cable to the PC immediately after clicking on Download , and wait for the end of the frame.

    Errors and why Its occures

    1] S_UNSUPPORTED_OPERATION(1040):==

    Scatter file does not fit the phone. For example, in 6577 the title is present, and the phone is actually 6573

    2] S_DA_EMMC_FLASH_NOT_FOUND(3144):==

    Besides problems with iron can be Scatter when the file is not the phone. For example in the title is present emmc, and the phone is actually a MTD flash.

    3]S_BROM_CMD_STARTCMD_FAIL(2005):==

    On phones with MTD flash if an error occurs:
    1] When you select Download to block preloader or dsp_bl not set daw. You should use the appropriate version SPFT, such v2.xxx for phones MT6573, or off DA Download All .
    2] When you select Download to block preloader or dsp_bl set daw. It is necessary to uncheck these blocks! If these blocks need to flash, it is necessary to connect the phone to BOOTROM.
    3] When selecting Readback , Format , or MemoryTest . It is necessary to connect the phone to BOOTROM.

    4] S_FT_READBACK_FAIL(4009):==
    In addition to reading errors in the phone the same error for errors in the file system PC. Eg not enough space for a file or file can not be overwritten because it is locked. To clarify the log should look.

    5] S_FT_NEED_DOWNLOAD_ALL_FAIL(4050):==

    Do not match the size of the blocks in the PMT and scatter. We must look at the log line BROM_DLL

    Partition 13 (USRDATA) size changed from 0x0000000000000000 to 0x000000000B620000

    This error may occur after the curve editing scatter during treatment error 8038. Treated loading FT through all blocks, or only one block userdata , then the size in the PMT should switch to the right. Instead, the entire block can be sewn userdata_nvram_only.img from its backup file or a pacifier.

    6] S_DL_PC_BL_INVALID_GFH_FILE_INFOR(5066):==
    Wrong files. For example when the scatter of the chosen folder is not yet prepared for the FT files. It is necessary to choose the scatter in the folder prepared for FT files.

    7]SP FLASH TOOL ERROR(8038):==

    This error Occure If:=For phones with the old type scatter (MT6515 / 16/17/73/75/77/89):
    Names and location of the blocks in the scatter differ from the table inside the phone (PMT). We must look SP_FLASH_TOOL.log and look at it line NOT MATCH

    Example=

    NandLayoutParameter :: CompareIsNandLayoutMatched (): NOT MATCH: load item key (CUSTPACK2), value (0x3444000), target item key (CUSTPACK), value (0x3444000)

    in this example, it is necessary to replace the name scatter CUSTPACK2 on CUSTPACK. If a few differences, this error will occur until the scatter after amendment does not become identical to the PMT. You can just fix it, if we compare the tables are a little higher in the log line NOT MATCH. The first of scatter, the second of the PMT phone. It is necessary that all blocks in the names scatter were the same as in the second table

    Edit scatter must be carefully! Change the names and the number of lines to save the original! Some manage to remove the newline and string imenm unit is on one line with a brace. FT sees this block without PMT and writes it. Then we need to spend efforts to restore this table.

    Error : 'PMT changed for the rom'.

    Cause : This type of error generally occurs when, upgrading or de grading the factory os.
    In this case the mbr value changes to different one.....

    Solution : In this case, u have to choose 'Firmware upgrade' rather than 'Download only'.
    After that, all the data will be erased even from internal memory...

    Note : Backup all the important data before doing this operation, because internal memory will be format in this.

    Here are a few more list of errors and solution

    1] BROM ERROR : S_FT_ENABLE_DRAM_FAIL (4032) [EMI] Enable DRAM fail

    Cause: SP Flash tool is unable to enable DRAM / communicate effectively with the device

    Solution: Ensure that the file(s) you're trying to flash are actually for your exact phone model
    Format the phone before trying to flash the file(s) again
    Ensure the phone is switched off (with battery still inside) before connecting to PC for flashing.
    If that doesn't work, keep trying with the boot key

    2] BROM ERROR : S_DL_PMT_ERR_NO_SPACE (5069)

    Cause: The size of a file is larger than the available / possible partition size.

    Solution: Ensure that the file(s) you're trying to flash are actually for your exact phone model. Try another stock ROM

    3] S_FT_Download_Fail(4008)

    Solution: Fully Charge the battery. Use the latest SP Flash Tool. If still u get this problem, time to format the device. Note: in format Your all data e.g Nv data will be deleted...
