[GUIDE] How to ReadBack ROM using SP FlashTool, to make the CWM recovery, to install SuperUser (get root) etc..
If your phone not rooted using the ROOT button.

1. Make scatter by means of MTKDroidTools
Scatter is the text file with addresses of the blocks, necessary for the SP FlashTool program.
After creation of scatter don't close the main window of the program! Otherwise once again it is necessary to turn on phone.

4. Determine the ROM_ size
Type has to stand in HEX. In the field of Start Address it is necessary to write down 0x000000. In the field of Length we copy from scatter the address of the block following after RECOVERY or the address of other block for fuller backup. For phones with type of the blocks EXT4 it is the cache block address. The number in the Hex format has to begin with 0x

5 . Choose Read Page Only on yaffs2 type blocks phones
In FlashTool choose Read Page Only in the field of Read Method. If this field isn't present, the window with this question can emerge, too we choose Page Only. On phones with EXT4 blocks it doesn't get out (as a rule).

6. Read Back ROM_
Click on Read Back button and connect the switched-off phone to PC. Here the options depending on a concrete phone are possible. Maybe it is necessary to press at the same time with connect of a cable the camera or volume buttons. Experiment and study work with FlashTool in threads with similar phones! On some MT6573 models, for example on B63, it can't be executed with any combinations and only testpoint need!

7. Prepare files for FlashTool and make CWM
If everything passed without errorss, we open the MTK Droid Root & Tools window which we left on 1th step. If for some reason the window isn't present, it is necessary to turn on phone and to connect it to the program. Click on To process file ROM_ from FlashTool button and choose the ROM_* file saved on the 6th step. At successful unpacking rom it will be offered to choose CWM from similar phone. Chosen CWM it is checked on compliance to the connected phone and if ok, the CWM is created.
Starting with v2.4.0 CWM it is made automatically and the file from similar phone shouldn't be looked for any more!

Аttention! Yaffs2 type blocks from this backup can't be Downloaded to phone, they aren't correct! Use backup on 9th step if phone have yaffs2 type blocks!

8. Download new CWM to the phone
Start FlashTool, choose scatter in the folder created on the 7th step. Remove marks from all blocks! Click on RECOVERY and we choose the file CWM in the same folder which was created on the 7th step. Click Download and connect a cable to PC (phone has to be switched off) and expect the end of process. DANGEROUS! On this step the CWM recovery block has to be marked only! Also it is necessary to use only the Download button and not to use at all the Firmware Upgrade button!

9. Make backup, install SuperUser etc
Load phone in CWM mode, connect to MTK Droid Root & Tools, go on the tab root, backup, recovery and, pressing on this tab the necessary buttons, we do:
- backup! ! ! (if in phone there is yaffs2 type blocks, do here surely, they received with readBack on 7th step aren't correct)
- install superuser (often mean "get root" under it)
- and other if need

Never needlessly Download preloader and DSP_BL blocks! It is always dangerous! On some models of phones (for example Alcatel) you will have a brick even if you download these blocks read from phone which you own! Always remove from them marks in SPFT!

Thumbs up
Big THANKS for creating MTK Droid Tools man!

One question about the backup feature of the tool. Maybe I just haven't tried it but, I understand you need to use the built-in Rooting tool of the program before creating a backup. What if my device is already rooted (without using the built-in rooting tool), how can I use the backup feature? So far, all the tutorials I've seen using the backup has rooted the device using the built-in rooting.

Thanks again!

You don't need to root your phone using the tool just to have access to the backup feature. Once phone is rooted (and insecure adb support enabled), backup button will be clickable.

OK Thanks man. I have to check on that again. Last time I tried it, the backup button is grayed-out.

O.T. also thanks to your CWM 6.0.2.8 for MTK. More Power!

Button is greyed-out when phone is not rooted and/or an unsecure adb connection is not established.

If you already have a CWM-based recovery you can also boot into recovery mode, connect the phone to the computer and then use MTK Droid Root & Tools to create the backup. That will surely work because normally recovery images are unsecured.

It means that on phone superuser is installed, in this case connection indicator in bottom left corner of program has yellow color. root shell is necessary for possibility of a backup. If to press the ROOT button, temporary root shell open and it will be possible to make backup
