How to Flash any Dead Android Phone using PC

Flash dead android phone copy


Summary: This post is about how to recover the Nokia/MTK Android phone, if it has gone Dead.

                            1- How Phone gets Bricked?

Basically, phone get bricked during the installation of Android OS (flashing).

If flashing is interrupted by low battery or loose cable connection during flashing.

If your android phone has been powered by Mediatek CPU and either you are using wrong firmware or a custom ROM (unstable) to flash your phone, your android mobile will get dead.


Result: Phone will not boot even after holding the power key and it will not accept charging.

It will get stuck at logo or will restart every time I.e., Boot loop or Restart loop.

Unable to Shift phone in Recovery mode.

In this situation, Hard Reset will not work.

    lHello Ankur sir,

    I have wrongly flashed my swipe mtv slash 3g 1 gb ram 8 gb rom seeing youtube videos thinking it is easy as given in your description also. Everything went o.k. and green tick came after flashing but after that my tablet is not switching on. I showed it to the service centre but i think they take easy cases and drop the difficult ones. I have to know swipe people have just made service centre for name sake and they dont know anything much. I talked to the company people and they declined to give the firmware of the device. At present people dont know their right so they are not filling case. In actual every company must give the operating system with the device so that the customer can later on solve the problem through their reliable sources. Think what will the public do if microsoft stops helping the world in terms of operating system. But in android phones we all are facing this problem. If everyone forces then company people have to give the operating system of the mobile in pen drive or memory card.

    Now coming to my problem my system is not starting. I have attached 3 pictures. if you can help me and tell me which firmware is compatible then i will be thankful to you.

    Another think is i used and from their also tried to check the device processor because after getting dead when i opened the device they have put steel plates on the processor and its name is hidden. So i cannot see the processor name. So i tried through imei number and it is showing mtk 6577 processor whereas the manual that came with tablet is written mtk8312 processor. Now i don’t know whether they have put mtk6577 imei no. on my tablet. So can you help me in this regard.

    Should i try with mtk6577 scatter.txt file ??? Do you have the firmware of this tablet??? Which firmware should i try to flash on it ? Can you give me any link i can download. All the files in internet like and other websites are either corrupt or not working. I downloaded from 2 sites and both did not work. It seems all the websites people are using the name database.

    Pls help if you pls…

    Hi Ankur Pratap,
    I have a Micromax A114 phone. Dead during flashing. Now can’t power On. Doesn’t show charging LED. When i try to flash, it works till BootLoader (purple line) then gives error “DL PMT ERR No Space (5069). in device manager its driver (port) keeps disconnecting. Tried reinstalling drivers & tried different version of Flash Tool but didn’t got success. I think something is related to EMMIC if i am not wrong or in its partition. Can not see KCOLO on board. Please guide me to repair it.

      U have to Short Kcolo nera volume key on PCB (Golden layer) with gnd then the device will get identified By PC.
      Your situation sounds like your phone has got stuck at Android Logo

    Hey… I’m using Micromax Q413 (Canvas Express 4G), and I installed CWM and rooted the device. Later I wanted to install TWRP and while trying to do that in SP Flash Tool I accidentally
    gave firmware upgrade and clicked download button without having required files. And for my bad even the battery was too low (below 5% I think). SP Flash Tool showed some DvRAM error, and after that my phone is completely dead. It doesn’t even charge anymore or doesn’t even vibrate. I’m sure its not some hardware error. Please help get it fixed. Thank You.

    I need help with my infinix hot note. (16g+1) The phone froze for while when i wanted to retrieve an info quickly. So i decided to shut it down through the power button so i can just restart it again. The phone went dead, its not responding to charging, not powering on, nothing. Now i tried flashing with numerous roms but it keeps bringing this error when i use the infinix flashing tool, it says Brom Error: Storage not a match (3182) when i use the SP flash tool, it also say something similar like Dram error. As of now, my phone is not responding to charging or anything.. I need help with the correct rom since i’ve tried a lot of them and its not working..

    • Majid Benslimane


    • Always untick preloader while flashing in sp flash tool & try with correct version of Flash file. your set will be ok

      • Majid Benslimane

        Thank’s sir for ur answer, but I tried to untick preloader and to try with a stock rom no results. I think it’s because the phone cant be turned off. because when I connect it to the PC, it’s not reconized as DA device like when it’s off.
        I really need a solution to install it with Sp flash tool without turning it off.

        • if it fails to make port then there will be golden plated on pcb near volume key. short with ground them it will be detcted by PC
