How to unlock MT6572 Memory - kofina - 2014-09-24

Hi everybody,

I have a MT6572 phone with this spec:

Hardware : MT6572
Model : Samsung Galaxy S IV(I950X)
Build number : ALPS.JB3.MP.V1
Build date UTC : 20140617-070854
Android v : 4.4.2
Baseband v: MOLY.WR8.W1315.MD.WG.MP.V1.P2, 2013/11/20 10:32
Kernel v : 3.4.5 (rs@rs-ThinkStation-D30) (gcc version 4.6.x-google 20120106 (prerelease) (GCC) ) #1 SMP Tue Jun 17 15:06:54 CST 2014
Uboot build v : -----
LCD Driver IC : 1-ILI9806E_dsi_vdo
Free space: system- 78.1M; data- 110.1M; sdcard0- 262.4M; C:\76170M

I made a memory test with this result:

============ Memory Detection Report ===========
Internal RAM:
Size = 0x00020000 (128KB)

External RAM:
Type = DRAM
Size = 0x10000000 (256MB/2048Mb)

NAND Flash:
ERROR: NAND Flash was not detected!

EMMC:
EMMC_PART_BOOT1 Size = 0x0000000000200000(2MB)
EMMC_PART_BOOT2 Size = 0x0000000000200000(2MB)
EMMC_PART_RPMB Size = 0x0000000000020000(0MB)
EMMC_PART_GP1 Size = 0x0000000000000000(0MB)
EMMC_PART_GP2 Size = 0x0000000000000000(0MB)
EMMC_PART_GP3 Size = 0x0000000000000000(0MB)
EMMC_PART_GP4 Size = 0x0000000000000000(0MB)
EMMC_PART_USER Size = 0x0000000070000000(1792MB)

============ RAM Test ============
......
OK!!

RAM Pattern Test :
Writing ...
OK!!

Increment/Decrement Test:
Writing...
OK!!
=================================

I can see in this result that only 256MB on 2048MB are used.

Is it possible to unlock all 2048MB of memory?
If yes, how can I can do that?

Thanks in advance
regards

If you're talking about RAM, sorry to let you know this, but it's faked. There's no such thing as an MT6572 phone with 2GB RAM.

What test did you use for this?


RE: How to unlock MT6572 Memory - kofina - 2014-09-25

I made this test with SP Flash Tool

What does Android say you have available for RAM? It's not possible the phone has 2gb as @bacon_puffs has said.. I'm just curious what Android reports.

Hi guys,
please I want to understand what's right in my phone (and it's my first android phone so...).
Android version is 4.4.2 and android report 224 MB of RAM.

Also can you explain me the free space indicated by MTK Droid Tools 2.53, please? (Free space: system- 78.1M; data- 110.1M; sdcard0- 262.4M; C:\76170M) specially C:\76170M.

Thanks
regards

Its 2048Mb(MegaBits) not 2048MB(MegaBytes). Divide by 8 and you get 256MB (MegaBytes).

256MB / 2048Mb   -   this refers to the same storage
