Btw i have a little problem, i cant do anything (even with CWM) in recovery mode, even if i try to just wipe cache, the phone freezes. Any solutions? I cant install any custom rom via recovery. I have Lenovo A680_ROW. If i try to do something, it shows up "Error code" or something. I cant simply do factory reset. Do u have any idea what would that be?

I've seen this issue on another Lenovo phone. Its called a fail safe mode. Everytime you try to reset or restore, nothing happens, and the phone stays the same. Is yours the same ?

Yes, i think it is. If i try to do anything (whatever it is) in recovery, it just freezes and i am not able to do anything else but removing the battery and restart. I installed CWM and tried factory reset and guess - brick anyway i flashed stock firmware using flashtool, but still the same problem in recovery. Do u know something about it?

So you can restore to stock using flashtool ?
Try with TWRP already ?

Yes, i can restore with flashtool, didnt try (yet) with TWRP, but i think the result would be exactly the same, anyway i will try it.

TWRP doesnt work too. Strange, isnt it?
Maybe i have to install CWM using flash tool? Do u think that would help? I want to install a custom ROM, there is a "recovery-resource.dat" file in the ROM's folder, havent done it before, can i install it this way?

[huaqin]
checkSum = 0x07c3


But I've found another one for MT6582, here:

PRELOADER 0x0
{
}
MBR 0xc00000
{
}
EBR1 0xc80000
{
}
__NODL_PRO_INFO 0xd00000

{

__NODL_PROTECT_F 0x1500000
{

__NODL_PROTECT_S 0x1f00000
{

__NODL_SECCFG 0x2900000
{
}

{

BOOTIMG 0x2980000
{

{

__NODL_MISC 0x3b80000
{
}
LOGO 0x3c00000
{
}
EBR2 0x3f00000
{
}
__NODL_EXPDB 0x3f80000
{
}
__NODL_KONKA 0x4980000
{
}
ANDROID 0x4f80000
{
}
CACHE 0x36f80000
{
}
USRDATA 0x3ed80000
{
}
__NODL_FAT 0x7ed80000
{
}
__NODL_BMTPOOL 0xffff00a8
{
}


Also i dont have EBR2 file, so im planning to erase it and try the second scatter. But, which one is better guys? There are some differences in values.
