[Q] Help flash/ restore Star S9500 after Clearing eMMC
I need help to recover my phone - Star s9500 after booting into factory mode and going to "Clear eMMC" (I know this was stupid of me but that is another story...). From MTKDroidTools, the phone hardware reads mt6582 and was running 4.2.2.
When the phone powers on, I only get the Android bootup animation and everything stops there.
I managed to install CWM using MTKDroidTools and even tried to flash the ROM using CWM after placing the zipped image on an sdcard. CWM simply aborts after attempting to read the zipped package.
For some reason MTKDroidTools does not show the IMEIs, but I can see the records when I power the phone into factory mode.
I tried to flash the rom using SP Flash tools as indicated in this thread:http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2458369
, but I simply keep waiting with the indicator "EMMC searching" from the tool or the phone itself even after 10 minutes (see attached files).
I am attempting to flash with this rom - http://www.needrom.com/mobile/star-s9500-mt6582-fwvga/
I did read somewhere that I have to setup partition information stored in the eMMC for the flashing to be successful. The post on this is here: http://checkrom.com/threads/formatti...-no-no-no.647/
, but I believe I can get this phone up and running again.
Various sources say that I only need to flash the rom. Can someone please point me in the right direction? Why am I unable to flash with SP Flashtools? What alternative flash tools can I try? For pictures please see attached.
I am also now getting a BROM Error from SP Flashtools saying Failed to open COM 8.(see attached)
Thank you in advance!
