Related Chipset Devices: Mediatek MTnnnn - Qualcomm - Spreadtrum

F.A.Q.: Any questions regarding the model and ROM build version can be answered.
SUPPORT: Post your questions below. I'll answer whenever I get time.

Q: What do I need to install Custom Recoveries files?
A: Know if the name, model, ROM version and kernel build is the same. Security with the stock ROM file (firmware links in the Source Link).
Reading and tests.

Q: After installing Custom Recovery on the phone I rebooted to the stock ROM and then it got into bootloop.
A: Before installing Custom Recovery copy magisk....zip or SuperSu.....zip to your sdcard external. If your device haven't external storage so you need read about command adb-fastoot to put zip file in your internal storage. After installing Custom Recovery on the phone you should install the zip file. Reboot: Wait time to reboot.

Q: I have other custom recovery files for a BLU device that is not in the list. Can I insert this file in the list?
A: Yes you can! You can add attached files or direct the file to a link. Whenever possible you should put the credits (name) of WHO DID the file.

Q: Where is the download file link?
A: Simple. Check your phone model (CLICK TO SHOW CONTENT) and then check if there is a "link".
Another option is on the Downloads tab: downloads

Hi, I got a BLU Studio J1. I am sorry for the newbie question. I am looking to root this device. No intention on installing any custom ROM, I only need root. Can you point me out which files (if available) would I need to do so? Thank you!

You have the BLU Studio J1 - S050Q - MT6570 - Android 6.0 Marshmallow - 512RAM - 8GB ROM.
So my question can be funny. But need.
You searched any custom recovery for your device before asking here?
If yes: So you have 2 ways. 1) Got to link and the guys create one to you => TWRP Builder
Read all thread!!
2) send me 3 files from stock ROM (same build version ROM of your device): recovery.img - boot.img - scatter....txt
If you don't have stock ROM, so I can't help!!
You need know about tool process to flash files.
READ this!!
About TWRP question:
1- is need anyone with experience (or courage to do) to flash stock files with SPFT.
IYou can able to do a backup stock ROM with SPFT if build version ROM is different from firmware. Then you will be able to flash the test file.
2- is need know if need unlock bootloader or not.
The first moment NO UNLOCK! If the file test not boot so is need Unlock to know if work file test.
3- I not need phone in my hands. But is very easy and fast solving issues when have its.
Because is more easy to repair phone if anything wrong happens. So the risk and responsability is of the user!!

Okay. Lets go by part. I have not looked/found any custom recovery for this device yet. If I am correct, getting a custom recovery for my device/build would allow me to initiate or start the process or rooting the phone? right?

Read all thread!!

I suppose I can work on this. I am just confused on this part.
"Get any working recovery.img for your device (from stock ROM or old working TWRP)"
Do I have to get it somewhere or, I can get it from that App of that thread?

If you don't have stock ROM, so I can't help!!

I ALSO can do this option instead. But how can I extract those files from my phone? or extract the stock ROM?

I have some experience with flashing devices, and I am aware of some of its basic principles and what It means. I am willing do it myself and take the risk, given I wont need get or purchase extra hardware for it. I assume with SPFT is some sort of tool that I can use to extract my current ROM build and flash?

With Custom recovery you can flash SuperSu or Magisk to have Root. Marshmallow ROM has the part that no good to Root with apps (in first released. But can have modified.).
So You can try some apps or software to have Root like kingroot (I don't like that but...). Search in xda!

Stock ROM: click in the link first post have Source Code going to thread with firmware and SEARCH if exist.
On that can have recovery.img file.

If not: send me PM and I show for you.

Your MT6570 can have difficulty or easy. All depend of your knowledge, courage and attempts!
Obviously, with security is better!!

I previously had found this on your BLU Stock firmware thread, but was not sure if that was it. So I don't need to extract the ROM from my phone? Can I get the files/information I need for the TWRP Builder with this stock ROM?

I think you not reading first post.
The V6.0.03.01 stock ROM file is same version from your phone?
Setting - about phone - build version

If yes: unzip file, look recovery.img and following instructions by twrp builder.

i Have a Blu S1 (Blu R1 HD 2018) rooted with magisk and i did a working TWPR ported from Doogee Y6, but my problem is that when i boot in TWPR it ask for a patron to decrypt data. I draw the patron but it fail to decrypt (can use normaly) and internal storage shows 0MB.
Recovery shows a partition called /System Image" with 2650Mb and /Data with around 12Gb
Any way to fix this issue?
Edit: I did a factory reset. Now the internal storage is fixed and TWPR dont ask for decryp data. But the Wipe Data delete the files in internal storage

You have the BLU S1 - S0320WW - MT6750 - Android 7.0 Nougat - 2 GB RAM - 16GB ROM.
For TWRP 3.2.x (either the kernel with Marshmallow or Nougat) it is necessary to perform a data reset (WIPE - FORMAT DATA) part so that the TWRP recognizes the data structure in the phone. This is required for TWRP to also see internal storage.
For people who do not know, there is currently a patch.zip called disable_encryption (forceencrypt=> encryptable). But it should be done particularly for an MT6750 with Android 7 or someone else making one for /or you do yourself.
With the option made in FORMAT DATA the device will start the ROM as factory.
That's why I always write something that people should know about like the attacked image.
Obviously, after installing TWRP you could use a MicroSD to back up your data. But, since you have already reset ....

Regarding partitions do you need to know, compare and confirm if the TWRP coming from the donor has the same partitioning structure as your phone.
If everything works out well, congratulations and good luck!

@lopestom intentionally i reset factory to remove the data encryption and it worked. TWRP shows all the partitions with the available space.
What I want is to be able to do in the future, to clean Data without removing files from internal storage (music, pics)
Could that be possible?
I compared the partition table of both and they are the same.
The difference between the devices more than everything, is in ram and storage.
