Try:
1. Extract Atom's boot.img using SP Flash Tool.
2. Copy the extracted boot.img to an android device.
3. Install Magisk Manager (apk) to the same android device.
4. Patch the boot.img using Magisk Manager.
5. Flash the patched boot.img to Atom using SP Flash Tool.

I thought the SP flash tool needed root access to run? I don't have root yet.

I have the atom, adb/flashboot working, I can unlock and lock the bootloader - I just need either a custom recovery for it or the ability to download the stock recovery/os images.

No, you don't need root to use SP Flash Tool.
You can extract an entire ROM with it. No need to wait for anyone to give you the stock recovery or boot.

Bricked
I tried to flash a "generic" MTK TWRP recovery.
Booting with Volume-Down didn't boot into TWRP but into normal "Factory-Mode".
Android started normally, after a while tried to reset to factory settings (vie Andoroid-Settings).
It rebooted and went dark.
Nothing happens any more, I can press any buttons (or combination of buttons), even for a very long time, but it stays "off".

Anybody has any ideas?

Use SP Flash tool to flash back the stock rom you had backed up before you flashed the custom recovery.

I tried to get the stock rom from the phone (before I bricked it): I tried for about 5 hours to get MTK Droid Tools to recognize my phone. But it stubbornly will not find the device. I tried multiple VCOM- and USB-Drivers, even installed PdaNet for the drivers, used a freshly set up Windows 10 for each try, but I didn't succeed. -> ADB & Fastboot of MinimalADB worked just fine.

So I was very frustrated and justed hoped that all will be good. But, suprise, not all was good...

So has anybody a stock rom for me?

Doesn't look like Official firmware has been released yet.
Should be able at https://www.unihertz.com/bbs/forum.p...display&fid=44 hopefully soon.

Ask Unihertz. They sure have one and they gave stock rom to Jelly users who bricked their jellies. Just ask.

Jep. I did this with my Jelly also....

I also asked, but still waiting...

If anybody has a stock rom (by whatever means) before Unihertz "offers" it offically, please let me know...
