How to Install / Requirements

Just in case, before flash make an full backup of your current Rom and Kernel.
Requirements
  • CWM, TWRP or CTR Recovery with SE Linux support
    Download CTR Recovery for KS version (new Aquaris 4.5 with Kingston memory)

Read with very carefully and do it at your own risk

  • Get the file MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc.txt from your stock Rom
  • Extract the ZIP (extended_userdata.zip) into a folder in your computer
  • Shutdown the phone
  • Open SP Flash Tool v3.1222.00 (or higher) and load the scatter file MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc.txt
  • Flash MBR and EBR1 as shown on the next image (more details in this flashing tutorial)
  • After flashing is complete, boot into Recovery and wipe/format /data
  • Reboot into Recovery again
  • It's recommended that you install the full Rom again
  • Reboot and enjoy
