MediaTek MT6572 7MB Recovery MOD!


Hello Guys...Does it say recovery image is bigger than the partition Size No Worries...(Other than MT6572 Users Refer to Previous Posts by @yuweng)

Lets Get Started...

There is a very Simple Trick to use this MOD....Most MTK Devices comes with 4.5MB Boot Partition
(Decompile and Recompile your Boot IMG to Get the Perfect Size of your Recovery)
Soo What we are going to do is, The Boot partition is of 6MB we will reduce it to 5MB...and then increase Recovery Partition from 6MB to 7MB
-:Things Needed :-
MT6572 Scatter File
Notepad ++
A Noob Brain!


-:INSTRUCTIONS :-


#1.Open your Scatter File with Notepad ++ for editing...


#2. Locate Recovery and Boot partition Info!


 


(Underlined RED are the Things we have to Deal With!)


#3 Change :-

BootIMG Partitons
Partition Size from 0x600000 > 0x500000
Recovery Partitions
Partition Size from 0x600000 > 0x700000
Linear Start Address
Now Subtract 0x100000 from the linear Start Address ex.- 0x2980000 - 0x100000 = 0x2880000


#4 That's It Now save the Scatter File and Flash the ROM with the New Scatter!




VOILA!!! 7MB Recovery Partiton

Thanks to @yuweng for the Support

PRESS THANKS GUYS THAT WILL HELP...I DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA HOW!
