This even works on the Snapdragon E4's?

I can't try anything since my original e4 had ghost touch issues, so I haven't unlocked the bootloader on my new one because I want to keep the warranty

taking firmware backup doesn't void your device warranty. instead this process doesn't require rooting or unlocked bootloader

isn't it possible to do a spflashtool readback if we have a scatter file ...

---------- Post added at 05:36 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:27 PM ----------

My device ( woods)(E4) isn't using this chipset ? shouldn't we try to edit a scatter file from the correct chipset and pulling the block map from adb ?

I want to get a valid scatter to do a readback of an unpatched boot image and stock rom using spflashtools and then patching boot with magisk .

Then we could flash back to stock etc etc ...can any of you who rooted woods use terminal or adb and pull the correct mount points so we can create a scatter for the 2GB/16GB woods variant .

@KevMetal
you can do this by following the main post
it's a miracle dump so obviously you can't make it spflash tool flashable. but our device have newer mtk chipset MT6737M and miracle tool isn't capable of flashing factory images to newer chipset you need a dongle to complete the flashing process. if we make this process more simple than you need to follow these simple steps.
dump firmware with miracle tool. its in .bin format change the extention to .img and this firmware is ready for flashing with fastboot tool.
do not flash these files in fastboot mode *pgpt.img* and "preloader.img*
if you still want to flash pgpt.img the correct way of flashing this file is "fastboot flash partition pgpt.img"

I am unable to backup using this guide as miracle tool fails to detect my phone. I followed the guide thoroughly but the tool shows "Waiting for USB Port..." two times and then "none usbport, maybe driver not installed". My phone shows white LED when I connect it as per instructions in OP.

Battery must be removed !! When doing backup through miracle.
You have to press vol. Down button multiple times when device is connected with laptop.

I did remove the battery. Also, do you need to press the volume up button or down? I pressed the start button as soon as COM & LPT disappeared from Device Manager. I also tried to press the volume down button multiple times as instructed by you but still no success.
