ROM with ALL the files needed to flash with SPFT
Instructions for put CWM v6.0.2.8 with SPFT (SP_Flash_Tool_exe_v3.1316.0.150.zip):

******** Remember: I am not responsible for your actions. ********

No need to ROOT! But you must have experience with SP Flash Tool (SPFT).

For more details to put "recovery.img" using SPFT you see Flashing only part of the ROM: [TUT]MTK Android (Sp flash tool ) tutorial

Basic instructions:
** All necessary files (scatter and recoveryCWM) are in CWM BLU Life Play L100i - by lopestom.zip. Also have all the drivers installed correctly.
  1. In SPFT select only option "RECOVERY". Press in word "RECOVERY" and choose recoveryCWM [recovery.img] in folder [CWM BLU Life Play L100i - by lopestom];
  2. With your device WITHOUT BATTERY - press in SPFT the option "DOWNLOAD" and select "yes";
  3. Connect USB in your device WITHOUT BATTERY;
  4. The process start;
  5. You know this make sucess when appears a green circle.



Using SPFT to flash all files or whatever it is needed:


Conditions for using the file BLU Life Play - SPFT: The device must have ALL the specifications as BLU Life Play!

I make a prayer so that you do not need these files.

If you need flash files, make sure it will do. Generally you only need to "revive" your device using only the selection "ANDROID (system)".

*** I have left two files scatter.tx. The preferred is that without the file selection "preloader" [MT6589_Android_scatter_emmc NO PRELOADER.txt]. Thus, you will be safer not to get brick as Master rua1 indicated here.

Quote:

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!

**** However, if you very really need, much more needed, then you should use the other scatter.txt [MT6589_Android_scatter_emmc WITH PRELOADER.txt] that I put with on the folder.

Create a folder with name BLU Life Play - SPFT in your PC and copy all files zipped. After extract this you see:
Code:
 boot.img
 cache.img
 EBR1
 EBR2
 LK
 logo.bin
 MBR
 MT6589_Android_scatter_emmc NO PRELOADER.txt
 MT6589_Android_scatter_emmc WITH PRELOADER.txt
 preloader.bin
 recovery.img
 system.img
 userdata.img

Download required files for SPFT: ----------------------->>>>>>>>> password: BLP

Part 1 (143MB) -- BLU Life Play - SPFT.part1.rar ---- Part 2 (143MB) -- BLU Life Play - SPFT.part2.rar ---- Part 3 (45MB) -- BLU Life Play - SPFT.part3.rar

Files to BLPL100i v15 (Anatel)

CWMv6044 v2.2- Touch: http://d-h.st/Yfc

recovery Original: http://d-h.st/bYp

clockworkmod_BLPv15_Anatel.rar: http://d-h.st/7YT

ROM for SPFT: http://d-h.st/p1M

But if you want network signal for L100a ... flash with CWM this patch after installed ROM:

modem_L100aV6_P33-16.11.2013.zip 9MB: http://d-h.st/lrc



So at this point you should not thank me. Make a thank you to all the real developers who make the correct software to save our device and also those who build ROMs, applications and software to create CWM.

Make a donation ($) for them. I already made my donation.
Thanks and credits for this to happen: Master Russian Shifu Michfood, Master Shifu rua1, Master Shifu bgcngm, Master yuweng and falcaobr.

I'll have mine in a few days! Thanks for this, I was really out on my own with the Studio 5.3S, though a great phone there wasn't much at all in the way of development.

Conditions before flashing:
- Take backup of your ROM by CWM (preferred) or TWRP as make is now;

To restore your data.... only data files by other KK ROM!!

The ROM KK comes with few audios on it. So I created a patch if you want more audios. Also if you want to put your audios, you can open the zip and delete any audio that is there or/and put your audio files. I suggest you put a few audios and are in ogg extension.
