How to Install MTK drivers in Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10

what we need:
MTK Vcom Preloader Driver 2.0
Download : https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24438995911977169



First thing we need is to Disable the Signed Driver verification on Windows :

To disable driver signature verification, we’re going to need to get into the Troubleshooting options from the boot manager.
The easiest way to bring this screen up is using this secret trick.


Hold down the SHIFT key while you click Restart.


Once your computer has rebooted you will be able to choose the Troubleshoot option.


Then head into Advanced options.


Then Startup Settings.


Since we are modifying boot time configuration settings, you will need to restart your Computer one last time.


After restarting your computer a second time,
choose Disable driver signature enforcement from the list by typing the number 7 on your keyboard.



That’s all there is to it. Your PC will then reboot and you will be able to install unsigned drivers.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>


Now its Time to open SP_Driver_v2.0.zip and start the DriverInstall.exe
it will open the install prompt . Press okay and dont change the installation path
Code:
C: // program files / Mediatek / Driver Package
during the installation it will start the verification window security.
Click on Install this driver software anyway


There will be an Error Message . - We Ignore it !

-Now Open your Device Manager and leave it open.
-Power Off your Phone and connect it with your Pc.
-you will see Under ports ( COM & LPT ) a Preloader unknown device
right click on there and click on Driver update/installation.
-Choose manually search for drivers
-Browse to C:// program files / Mediatek / Driver Package and apply.
-If all went good you have successfully installed the MTK Vcom Drivers.

How to Install Custom Roms


You don't need to root your phone to use Custom Roms like
Eragon Rom
or
Nexus Rom
because within installation it will get root with SuperSU

P.s: if you run into a problem e.g Bootloop . (newest Rom dont work well with our Custom Roms , related to its Partition.Img)
You could Flash the Stock ROM 02150725 to solve it

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Place the Rom.Zip into your Internal or External Sdcard

2. If you are on Stock Rom just Flash a Custom Recovery
Best Recovery without any bug is Philz v2 but you can also use Twrp Recovery

3. Hold Vol+ and Power simultaneously
you will get into the Bootloader Menu

4. Navigate with Vol+ to Recovery and apply with Vol-

5. In Recovery perform a Fullwipe , wipe System , Data , Cache , Dalvik
(In Philz Recovery wipe "clean to install a new rom"
In TWRP Recovery Wipe /advanced Wipe /wipe System,Data,Cache,dalvik)

6. Install the Rom.Zip located in your Sdcard

7. Reboot

Windows 10 MTK VCOM USB Drivers for 32 & 64 bit + Driver install tutorial

To determine the version of Windows 10 that you have (32 bit or 64 bit):

- Right-click on Start then click on System
- In the System window that opens, in System section, you will find your version of Windows next to System type

To disable Windows 10 64 bit driver signature enforcement:
- On your 64 bit Windows 10 desktop click on Start then on Settings
- Click on Update & security then in the left pane click on Recovery
- Under Advanced startup click on Restart now button
- Click on Troubleshoot then on Advanced options
- Click on Startup Settings then on Restart button
- The computer will restart with the Startup Settings screen
- To disable the driver signature enforcement until next restart press on number key 7 or F7 on your keyboard.
- After restart you can proceed with the unsigned MTK drivers installation for your 64 bit Windows
- After you install the unsigned drivers, to use them again in the future, you have to repeat this procedure

To install the MTK VCOM USB Drivers on 32 & 64 bit Windows 10:


- Download the drivers *.zip archive and extract the folder from inside on to the desktop:
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24269982087012126




Right-click on Start then click on Device Manager



In the Device Manager Window click on the first item – your computer name




Click on Action then Add legacy hardware



On the Welcome to the Add hardware Wizard window click on Next button



Select Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced) and then click on Next button



Click on Show All Devices then on Next button




In the Add Hardware window click on Have Disk… button




In the Install From Disk windows click on Browse… button
In the next window – Locate file – browse for the folder that you have extracted on the desktop at the beginning




Select the version of the driver according to your Windows 10 version – x64 for 64 bit and x86 for 32 bit and click Open button



Click the OK button to load the driver



From the list of drivers select MTK USB Port and click on Next button



If a red warning window will open, click on Install this driver software anyway

This action will add the following drivers in to the operating system:

- MediaTek DA USB VCOM Port
- MediaTek PreLoader USB VCOM Port – for transferring the firmware to your device
- MTK USB DEBUG Port
- MTK USB Modem Port
- MTK USB port – for transfering PreLoader to your device (and recovery in case of bad or corrupt firmware)


Now we need to remove the device that we have installed but leave the drivers in the operating system.
To do that, in the Device Manager window we expand Ports (COM & LPT) section




Right-click and click Uninstall on the MTK USB Port



- In the Confirm Device Uninstall window make sure that the box Delete the driver software for this device is empty
- You need to leave the drivers in the operating system and only remove the device that you added
- Click on the OK button to finalise


Now, when you will connect your turned off MTK device to the Windows 10 computer by USB, the device will be recognized either trough a MediaTek Preloader USB VCOM Port interface or as a MTK USB port if it is bricked or it has bad/corrupt firmware. The SP Flash Tool will be able to transfer the firmware to your device trough this interfaces. Make sure you connect the device after you press the Download button in SP Flash Tool, as the communication interface will only be alive for 2 seconds if no data is being sent.

Download SP Flash Tool v3 & v5 – Latest versions:

Lost IMEI Restore

A common problem many face in their phone is loss of IMEI no. This is results in no network detection by your phone. U can come to know you have lost your IMEI by checking Settings->About phone->Phone information. There under IMEI section you won’t be finding your mobile IMEI numbers displayed.

Don’t worry you can restore your IMEI’s. Just follow this guide and you will be able to restore your IMEI. I will split the tutorial into two parts.

BACKING IMEI :

-First step before performing all these things is that your phone should be rooted.
When your phone is in normal state with everything functioning install Root explorer and navigate to the below location
Code:
>ROOT>DATA>NVRAM>MD>NVRAM>NVD_IMEI>MP0B_001
-Now copy this MP0b_001 file to your SD card or PC whichever place you feel the file we be safer.
-Now download MTK Droid tools .
-Now extract the zip file and open the MTK droid tools exe file.
-Now in your phone turn on USB Debugging by going to Settings->About phone-> Developer options and there turn on USB debugging.
-Now connect your phone and MTK droid tools should be able to detect your phone. U should see a window like this appearing after your
phone has been detected.



-Now press the ROOT button present in lower right corner. When it asks Supersu grant in your mobile click allow. After MTK droid gets
access u should see a green colour box appearing in the lower left corner which means u have correctly granted access to MTK droid.
-Now click on the IMEI/Nvram tab. A window should open and click backup NVRAM and MTK droid tools would take a backup of NVram in
its folder.

RESTORING IMEI :

-Now when you lose IMEI first try this method. Now take the MPDB_001 file which you took backup at the first step and navigate through
Root explorer to this location ->ROOT->DATA->NVRAM->MD->NVRAM->NVD_IMEI.
-Now paste that file and replace the one present there. Set the permissions for that file as RWER-ER-E. Now reboot your phone and you
should be able to get your IMEI back.
If you still haven’t got IMEI open MTK droid tools and connect your phone and press ROOT again and give MTK droid tools root access.
-Now click on IMEI/Nvram tab and select Restore option and restore the NVram backup which you took earlier. Now reboot your phone and
you should be able to get your IMEI.

Extreme method :


-After performing all the above if you haven’t still got IMEI. Now switch off your phone and open SP Tools and connect your phone.
Click on format and format your whole phone. ( This wipes whole of the phone including NVram region ).
-Now flash stock ROM through SP Tools and after it completes start up your phone. ( Don’t be surprised. Your IMEI will still be in lost state
only ). Now root your phone.
-After successful rooting now connect your phone to MTK Droid tools and again press ROOT button and grant root access to MTK Droid
tools. Now click on IMEI/NVram tab.



-Now as you see in the image above you can see two boxes IMEI1 and IMEI 2. Now enter your device IMEI numbers manually in those two
boxes.( You can get your IMEI no’s from your phone box ). Now click replace IMEI. Now reboot your phone and you should be definitely able
to get your IMEI restored.

Thanks for this great work.

And for all the Linux Users out there. SPFlashtool also work perfekt with x86-64 Linux distros.
The most anoying point and greatest drawback is, that with newer Ubuntu based distros like Mint, since 14.04, the builtin modem-manager don't like Mediatek, so you have to blacklist Mediatek in the udev rules.

How this will done, is written in that great tutorial by Miss Montage.
