When we use SP Flash Tool to flash the MTK CPU phones from China, there are many errors appear during the processing, here are some FAQS and the solutions.
1. Stuck at the purple bar after the finish of red bar. (error 4008)
Solution: Take down the battery, and then reinstall, enter into REC and choose turn the phone off. Then flash again.
2. Driver has been installed, but there’s an error when click the flash button.
Solution: Normally this is because of the power supply is not stable by USB interface, you can use the USB interface at the back of PC, or unplug other large power consumption equipment.
3. Normal operation case, and appear a different error from the step 2. (typically error 3013, higher occurrence rate)
Solution: The problem is very normal and many people have asked! Basically because we upgrade the 4.1.2 and want to flash back to 4.0.4, then we just need the SP Flash Tool we use before to flash back to 4.0.4, or use official 4.1.2 SP Flash Tool.
