Today we are going to assist you in flashing using the sp flash tool. The sp flash tool is used to flash mobile phones but not all the mobile phone in the world but only android mtk phones. The mtk chipset is the most popular chipset that has been made popular by many manufacturers, manufacturers like Mobicel, AG mobile, Vodafone, lenovo, hurricane, PREMIO, Telefunken, sansui and many more. Remember that companies like Samsung, Sony, lg, Huawei and Hisense are also android phones manufacturers but they never manufactured phone with mtk chip set. This means that you cannot flash phones from these manufacturers using the sp flash tool . 

The sp flash tool can be downloaded here  from your computer and when you downloaded, it might come in a zip file so you will need to extract it out of the zip file. You do not need to install it as you install any other programs on your computer. Now after you have downloaded the sp flash tool then you need the firmware of your phone. You cannot use a firmware for different phone you have to use the specific firmware for your phone. That means if you are flashing a mobicel vivo you will have to download a mobicel vivo firmware, if you want to flash a Vodafone vfd 100, you will need a Vodafone vdf 100 firmware. Most mtk firmware can be downloaded here, use the search bar on the website to find the specific firmware for your phone. The firmware will also come in a zip file, you might need winrar to extract the zip files.

Now we are done with the sp flash tool and the firmware. Next you will need the vcom drivers, the vcom drivers works for all mtk phones. Download the vcom drivers and follow the installation instructions given here. You cannot flash your phone without these drivers because your computer will not detect your phone when you connect it with a USB cable as we know that any external device connected to the computer will need drivers so that the computer will identify the the device and know how to treat it.

Now that everything is in place, switch off your phone, the phone that you want to flash. On your computer open the extracted sp flash tool folder and scroll down to the file named "flash_tool" and double click it or run it. This will run the flash tool. Click the "scatter loading" button on the flash tool, use the page that popped up to navigate to the extracted firmware and inside the folder select the only file you see and click open. Now the scatter file will load, after loading unchecked preloader on the list of files to be flashed. Now click download and connect your phone to the computer with a USB cable. NB: the phone must be OFF. A red bar will load at the bottom of the flash tool, a yellow bar will follow after the red bar has finished. When the yellow bar finish loading a green tick✔ will pop up indicating that flash tool has finished flashing your phone.
