In case of flashing stock roms I normally use Firmware Upgrade on my MTK phone, but what does exactly Format All does?

Don't use it, it will erase your nvram (imei and s/n). it's for special cases

I use SP_Flash_Tool_exe_Linux_v5.1628.00.100.zip works for me, I just download/read with it though, I don't use format.

I have a question regarding this tool.. I used readback on EMMC_USER region, start address 0x0 and length 0xe4000000
the length value I got from the scatter file
Quote:

partition_index: SYS23
partition_name: userdata
file_name: userdata.img
is_download: true
type: EXT4_IMG
linear_start_addr: 0xe4000000

There to be exact. So I made the readback and it went fine, 3GB+ file got made.

Now to the question, I rooted my phone and I cant revert back to be able to do the OTAs. Question is now, can I write this back without risk? Using write memory. I cant use the MTK tool as it gives errors, so I cant split the dump.

If its okay to do it, should I just select region EEMC_USER and set the begin address to 0x0 or the 0xe4000000 I used as length during the readback?

Thanks a lot in advance.. <3

Begin address is the 0xe4000000. Length IS NOT this number. So your readback image is useless.
