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!

Yes Hello

Whats that ?
Maybe you post some device / soc specs?

Your post is useless and no one could help you in your case.

This mod does work but it also doesn't work, it is meant for further development but nobody did it so i concluded MTK devices with PMT partition only could get it to work.

What Works : You could even increase it to 8, 9 or even 10MB max
What Doesn't work : Ported custom recovery will never boot

Conclusion : No PhilZ Touch or TWRP for device with 6Mb recovery, use CTR latest version here . . .

Is the project dead? I installed the application and when I launch it, it cannot download the required files.

Here is the log:

Code:

Done

I'm connected to Internet and to my phone.

thanks for the replying and i did get twrp on my device but i had to delete the files you said to delete. I didn't like the look that's why i wished to increased the recovery partition size from 6MB. I am in CTR ATM.
