[Q] Downloading and Flashing Entire ROM via SP Flash Tool
I need some help and I know this is the place to find it!
I have searched for several days all over the internet trying to read and gather information, and I am coming up short.
I know Bruno Martins has posted some information on his blog on how to "readback" (backup) your current rom for your phone, but there is no information on how to flash the entire ROM package back to your phone (at least with regard to the errors you may receive).
Basically, I am looking for some help on how to backup one of my phones entire rom package and put it on my other phone that I messed up via the Smart Phone Flash Tool (the exact same model: Star Touch Diamond 2 B2000 MT6573).
The new phone works perfect, I have never touched it, my old phone which is the same model I deleted and formatted the system so I need to put the stock rom on.
I was able to do a "backup" of my new phone, but when i try to flash the preloader and uboot, etc, the sp flash tool says error loading file, or region too large with overlap.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
By the way, my phone is not bricked, but I cannot access recovery! I was able to find and install another fully assembled rom to my phone and the phone does power on with lights, but it doesnt have the display driver I need so I cannot see anything.
The reason I flashed another rom was because the phone was essentially bricked and wouldnt do anything, and that was the only rom I could find on the internet that was a full package (preloader, uboot, system, etc) but isnt compatible with phone.
Anyhow, if I understand correctly I need to use hexadecimal calculator to find length of partitions of original phones rom, readback the files, somehow edit the preloader file? then flash them back to the old phone?
I would love to make a tutorial of this method with pictures and possible errors for everyone if we could get this solved!
Please point me in the right direction!
And I wanted to thank BRUNO in advance for his hard work and help!!
