No:9.Taking backup of full ROM: This is the most important,because if anyhow you brick your phone then you can recover your phone using this backup through Spflashtool.First thing is to create scatter file. Create a folder named ‘’ROM” on Desktop.Open Mtkdroidtool. Connect your phone to PC in USB Debugging enabled mode. Click on ROOT. Click on Blocks Map,then click on create scatter file.


Save it.Copy Scatter files and paste on the “ROM” folder.Now minimise mtkdroidtool and open Spflashtool.Select Scatter Loading.
Select Scatter file from ROM folder.




Click on read back.




Click on Add




Open Scatter file with notepad ++ and copy cache size.





Then go to SPflashtool and double click on ROM_0.Save ROM_0 inside ROM folder





Paste cache size under Length.





Dissconnect your phone from pc.Then click on Readback.switch off your phone and then connect to pc.





Wait till readback process complete and a green circle appears as shown below.Now you have a file ”ROM_0” in your “ROM folder”




Now close Spflastool and maximize Mtkdroid tool.Disconnect your phone and switch on.then connect to pc.Give root shell permission by clicking on root if root shell dissapeared.Go to root,backup and recovery.
Click on to process file ROM_from flash Tool.
Select ROM_0 from ROM folder.Wait till backup process complete(keep patience as this process will take time depending on your pc speed,about half an hour to one hour).



Now go to mtkdroidtools backup folder,there is a spflashable folder.Copy or cut all files inside it and paste in ROM folder.





Rename nonmodified recovery as recovery.img.Save ROM folder for future use.

No:10.Taking backup of IMEI:
This is also very important,because many times installing custom ROM IMEI lost occur.
Connect your phone to pc USB debugging enabled.Open Mtkdroid tool.Click on ROOT if root shel not enabled.After enabling root click on IMEI/NVRAM.
Then click on Backup.










You will get tow files inside BackupNVRAM folder Inside MtkDroidTools folder.One is .bin and other in .tar format.save them for future use.



Now whenever you need to restore your IMEI,open Mtkdroidtool in the same way explained above and in place of backup click on restore.separate window will open two times,select .bin and .tar files respectively and your IMEI will be restored.
