Trouble updating firmware for Cubot GT99

Trouble updating firmware for Cubot GT99
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.

I'm trying to update the firmware of a Cubot GT99 using the rom downloaded from the link above.

When I run the SP flash tool and try to load the scatter file .txt, it says "incorrect scatter file format".

Thought read-only file settings might be the problem, but read-only has been turned off.

Anyone know how to get past this?

RE: Trouble updating firmware for Cubot GT99
Tried it with that tool:

- starts with an error when the tool is ran: load DA file [long file url starting with F:\%*@&gibberish%*%\ and ending with \tool's directory name\MTK_AllInOne_DA.bin] error
- "incorrect scatter file format" when scatter file is chosen

Tried choosing the DA file in the tool's directory manually. Still "incorrect scatter file format"...

ok, I did download the rom n try myself to scatter the file, u r right, it give u error message,

after going tru the file , it is a sp flash tool format,


u cannot scatter the files because the folder name is in Chinese.

This is what u can do,
copy the folder "image" under the file to the desktop. then u r ok to scatter now

or rename the folder name to other name ( no Chinese)

I was using sp flash tool v3.1316 to test
