I tried to update firmware for my Star n9500 (mtk6589) - in my firmware ringer/speaker didnt worked !!!
i used SP flash tool, and windows disconected in the middle of the proces.
Phone was dead after that, now im getting error BROM ERROR: S_FT_ENABLE_DRAM_FAIL (4032) - [EMI] Enable DRAM Failed!
So no way to upload old or new firmware always same problem. I tested 3 computer + 3 different USB cables, always same error, 2 different firmwares (from needrom.com)

Windows detect phone as MTK USB port or some times (i still dont know how exactly) i get also detected as DA USB VCOM PORT (in drivers details i have id VID_OE8B&PID_2001) - but also in this mod SPflash tool (im using verson v3.1304.0.119) do not start to trnsfer data. (here programming dont start - so i dont get error)

Any idea how to fix the phone?

Make sure ALL files in the checklist on the side are present - Got similar errors when flashing rom without preloader to a different device.

There might be some clues to pick up here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1943442

... I'd want to start with making sure you're flashing a rom that you're certain is made for your device - and make 100% sure Preloader is included!

I solved my problem.
As a last chance i tried to flash my N9500 with wrong firmware from Star S5.
And miracle - phone was flashed without problems , no errors.
After that was non functional, but this allowed me to flash original n9500 firmware, and phone was functional
