How To Unbrick Tecno F7 Smartphone

About a week ago, a friend rooted his Tecno Phantom A smartphone. He was so excited about the endless possibilities to customize his device so he kept installing a lot of applications that caught his attention unaware of the dangers some apps can create on rooted smartphones.

Finally, he installed an application called Font Changer Lite and that was when it all happened.
After installing this app, his phone attempted to reboot and instead of booting normally, the phone froze at the Tecno logo. It wasn’t going passed that state. He couldn’t boot into his phone. Practically, his phone was bricked and had to look for a way to unbrick and use his phone again.

If you are presently in the same limbo state as described, please follow the instructions below step by step to fix your device. I recommend reading through first before actually starting the process.

Kudos to Seunpayne of Nairaland for uploading his files for download and also giving instructions on the usage. 

The instructions below have been modified by me, especially with images so that it would be easy to follow and achieve success.

Needed Items
11.   7zip : Download here
22.    SP Flash Tool v3.1224.0.sn85 : Download here
33.   Android drivers and flash MTK vcom drivers : Download here
44.   F7 preloader and flash files : Download here
55.  Tecno F7 image file : Download here
66.   msxml6.msi : Download here

   Difficulty: Not Difficult

  Note: Read before you begin. All images are F7 specific. If you want to restore another Android phone that is not Tecno F7, you would have to download its image files.

Procedures

11. Download all the files listed in the Needed Items section to your computer. They are all zipped files.

22. Create a new folder on your Desktop and name it Tecno F7 tools.

33. Unzip all the downloaded files to the Tecno F7 tools folder. Each of the downloaded files would now be in their own separate folders after unzipping. see the image below

44. Install all the drivers located in “ADB_usb_driver_120827_v3” folder and “MT6577 USB VCOM drivers” folder. Also install msxml6.msi driver too: very important!

55. After installing all your drivers (WHICH IS A VERY IMPORTANT STEP), cut the “MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc”file. which is marked red in the above image. It’s a .txt file and paste it in another location on your Desktop. Make sure it’s not in the same folder as the other files.

66. Locate the SP Flash Tool folder and double click on the blue Flash_Tool icon. This would open the flash tool.





77.  From the flash tool, click on File top left and click on Open Scatter-Loading File.


88. Navigate to the MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc”file location and select the file.

99. Now check the boxes, BOOTIMG, RECOVERY and ANDROID as shown in the image below.

110. Double click on names BOOTIMG and select boot.img you downloaded. Also double click on          RECOVERY and select the recovery.img you downloaded. Finally, double click on ANDROID and select the System.img file you downloaded. Once you have selected these files, the path would be displayed like in the image below.

111.  Connect your F7 phone to your PC and remove the battery. Click on Download as seen in the image below. After Download is complete within 10mins, you will see a green circle on your desktop.
 
112.   Remove USB cord from PC and insert the battery back into the phone.

113.  Press Power button and Volume Up key button together. It will show you 3 options. Use the Volume Up ONLY key to navigate to Recovery Mode option and use the Volume Down key to select.

114.  The phone will show you list of things to do. Use the Volume Up key to scroll to Backup User Data and use the Volume Down key to select it.

115.  Now, put on your F7. Language would be Chinese which you can easily change from Settings.

116.  To change language, just navigate to Settings (the wheel icon) and scroll to where you have the Language & Input (A is written beside it) and select your language of choice.

 
After you have done all this, your Tecno Phantom F7 should be back on and functioning well.
Please try to read reviews before you download any app, especially when you have root access installed on your phone. Also, Chainfire 3D could brick your phone.
This procedure may be applied to other Android phones too. Only download their roms and recovery files.

Almost all the files used were put up by Sehun Payne of NairaLand. Thanks bro. Contact hime for more info.
This was experienced and put together by Awolola Anuoluwapo. Kudos to him! Follow him on twitter @anu5599 for more information.

Also, images and editing done was done by me. Follow on twitter @me also like our Facebook page Phonegist for timely info.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. unbrick means to resuscitate a dead Android phone. unroot means to remove superuser or administrative privileges on an Android device.

      If network goes off and on too often, you may need to factory reset the device as a last resort.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I wouldn't advice you tinkering with it. Since its under warranty, the first thing is to take it to them for check up.

      However, if you decide to investigate it yourself, first make sure charger is good and its in contact with electricity. If that is ok then next thing is to connect to PC to see if its detected by the PC.

      Next, if detected, then its alive. Now enter recovery mode by holding down volume-down button while attempting to power the device.

      In recovery mode, reset the device to factory settings. Don't worry, items in SD card would not be formatted.

    1. if you have nvram.bin backup you can easily resore it with SP Flash Tool. Just open your scatter file with any text editor, find a __NODL_NVRAM section and remove __NODL_ part from it. Reopen scatter in SP Flash Tool and you'll be able to check NVRAM partition.
      It might not be able to upload it without other parts selected. But you can you Options->Write memory, then manually enter start address, which will be show on download/upgrade page near NVRAM and length (your nvram.bin length) - that will always work. Be careful to write correct address thou.

    3. theoretically yes. however, until you do it you can't be sure

      Have you got the stock rom for
      your device type? Have you got a sys.img, uboot and recovery image specifically for your phone? If you don't have them, you need to go get them before you can do this.

      You can't load up another manufacturer's rom on your phone especially if its not tested to work, it would mess up your phone.

I can enter recovery,cannot do anything there, and the device won't boot.

    an example of the error it keeps displaying is

    E:format_volume: make_extf4fs failed in /dev/block/mmcblk0p4
    E:failed to mount / cache (No such file or directory)......

  83. thanks a lot. Just little issue yet to be addressed. I couldn't download ADB USB Drivers, MTP 6577 USB VCOMM Drivers & System.img is a large file thereby taking longer time to download. "NOT ALL IMAGES ARE CORRECTLY LOADED" is a warning message on display while I click DOWNLOAD; after checking the necessary boxes in SMART PHONE FLASH TOOLS. Kindly help urgently to respond on way forward as my phone is currently DEAD. Thanks & God bless. Olusanya Feyitimi

  86. There are no drivers in the ADB USB driver folder, and I think that's why it says all drivers are not loaded correctly. Please help.

    1. Have you tried updating the PRL list? You can do this by typing *#*#4636#*#* and select phone information and then try changing the network mode to WCDMA preferred

    1. Take it to a Tecno Carl Care office for repairs. Connect to computer first to see if it communicates with the laptop in the slightest way. That way you will know if it's totally dead or not.
