Question
I am using Macbook (Mountain Lion). Could you please suggest an alternative for S.P. Flash Tool for MAC. (BTW my phone is already rooted)


I searched for a few, but didn't find any that accepts such a scatter file and things like that. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Brother,

I tried this patch and it was not showing any Storages. Then I formatted my phone using SP flash tools. After that my phone is bricked. Now It is being detected in SP flash tools and I am able to format phone but It is not able to complete the flashing. It starts and when RED strip comes it just stops there. Please help me.

If possible please provide me the default EBR files.
