[About] What is MTK Droid Tools?
#1
Inspired by NexusTrix backup tutorial, I decided to take the time to write out a 'what is MTK Droid Tools for beginners'. If anyone has anything to add, please add on to the thread.

If you're new to the scene, you might not know what MTK Droid Tools is. It's a tool for your MT6592, MT6582, MT6589T, MT6589T, MT6577, MT6575, MT6572 and most any relatively modern MTK CPU / SoC.

Just some of the things MTK Droid Tools is capable of:

MTK Droid Tools includes an ADB shell
From here you can access and send commands to your phone via PC. An example of how this might come in handy is if you edited/swapped your build prop and forgot to change to proper file permissions. [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] This is just a basic example. Many things can be done.

Backup your MTK firmware
Very important for anyone who's about to flash a new ROM and doesn't have access to a backup. Sometimes the reason can be the manufacturer hasn't released the firmware yet. Possibly you have a no-name brand phone you want to try and modify. Maybe a friend has the exact same phone and needs your firmware. [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register].

Create CWM custom recovery for your MTK phone
Another necessary tool within MTK Droid Tools repertoire is the ability to process a CWM for your phone. Most name brand phones have people who have already created CWM. However, it's often the case that the phone may be too new, or you may have a phone that it's impossible to find CWM for. In comes MTK Droid Tools to do the job. [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register].

Process your backup for SP Flash Tools
Another great tool is SP Flash Tools. This software allows us to flash our phones with ROMs from our PC. MTK Droid Tools will process your backup and prepare it for SP Flash Tools [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register]

Find your phone's true hardware specifications

Often unscrupulous manufacturers will fake the CPU version on the phone. Making it show MTK6589, or MTK6592, when in reality the phone is a MTK6577 or MTK6575. MTK Droid Tools will tell you in the front page your phone's true SoC. It will also tell you your phone's LCD driver IC and uboot build V, as well as common information such as baseband version and kernel version.

Write your IMEI. MTK Droid Tools again to the rescue
If for some reason you've lost your IMEI, you can attempt to use MTK Droid Tools to write IMEI to your phone.

Delete the Chinese apps
Some firmwares come full of what I guess the manufacturer's and firmware developers feel are important. Most of it's junk to non-Chinese Nationals. MTK Droid Tools will go through and rapidly delete the known China junk apps from your phone with the click of a button.

Build a scatter
What's a scatter file? A scatter is a small text file that tells SP Flash Tools exactly where to flash various parts of the ROM onto your smartphone's storage. It's important that you use a scatter file for your phone. Many MTK phones with the same SoC (system on chip) have the same scatter file, but it's not always the case. It's best practice to use the scatter file created for your phone.

Hi Gizbeat,

Here I am again.
Now I saw your subject about MTK Droid Tool.
I want to make a backup for my ZP810 phone.

I start MTK Droid Tools and tab for root backup recovery.
When I click the backup butoon I shows the following message : "ATTENTION THE SD card isn't found! System and userdata won't backup! To continue?

Is this correct?

Have a great Christmas nect week and thanks for all the good work!!!!Happy

Do you have an SD card in your phone? If you don't, it's okay. Go ahead and do it. I believe it's just telling you there's no system data / user data to backup because there's no SD installed. So you'll only be backing up the 'raw' firmware.

I have the same problem, I installed the drivers, I'm trying to install the new official firmware without luck so far.
I also tried a computer with windows XP
In one of the different toolbox which I used my I have got the message "No Bootrom (preloader) USB port was found! COM2 is not a Bootrom (preloader) USB port.Auto Polling number: 0"

Reply

That is not a error, it just letting you know you have fake hardware. What the phone is showing in Android is not true hardware. It's faked (spoofed). You can still do the backup. Follow the backup tutorial [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register]

Hello
have a mobile phone by HDC S6 EX with MTK6582 CPU, Android 5.0.2, with an application Samsung S6.

Have different root programs the device attempts to root, but in vain!
Then I tried to produce 2.5.3 Recovery boot.img files and what has not worked with Droid-tools. It has struck me that in the created under the button "Block Folder" Scatterdatei for "usrdata" no "ext4" Fomat stands and the field is empty.
To compare, I then made a MTK6582_Scattdatei and compared with my Scatterdatei. It may be concluded that on my Scatterdatei 2 partitions EBR2 and FAT are entirely absent, and the format of some files differs from the comparison list (list appended files marked)!

Can someone please give me a hint whether these missing entries and otherwise file formats have to do with the boot process, and if so, how can correct this?
Have already made before printing the list a factory reset.

Thanks in advance
