Unbrick Tutorial / Back to STOCK ROM
Here is unbrick/update tutorial for those who are in bootloop, or for those, who want to update or restore phone to stock ROM with SPFlashTool method.

*NOTE: READ!!!! All your files will be deleted. Please backup your internal storage.
This process will not format your SDcard.


*NOTE2: If you dont want to lose your phone data, you must uncheck userdata field in flashtool. - Step 4E
- This step is experimentall and it can cause problems and bad system stability. Please do not use this step if you are comming back to stock/official rom from custom rom.
- This step is possible to use, if you are restoring your phone from bootloop after OTA update on rooted phone.

---------------UNBRICK GUIDE-----------------
1) Download all important files:
A) Download all Drivers from first post and install it. - If you have win8/8.1/10 use my tutorial how to install it - in first post too. - here
B) Download latest STOCK ROM from here and extract it : http://www.needrom.com/download/homtom-t6/ (latest version is R17 - 20160513, maybe Homtom will release new updates, just download latest version - R17 here: https://yadi.sk/d/4AOdC_9hv3ttR)
C) Download flashtool from here and extract it: https://mega.nz/#!O05Q2ZSL!mOVtYCDD2qhEoCdmATj3UKWmxLRF5H7EDeg-sUMK6Q8

2)Power off your phone - if you are in bootloop just hold power button until phone power off.
3) Prepare original Homtom USB(charging) cable - Do NOT connect your phone in PC - I will tell you when you must connect your phone.
4) Follow this pictures:
A) In PC open Spflashtool folder and open Flashtool as administrator - http://s22.postimg.org/5na2xf4ip/ht6unbrick1.png
B) Press ok button - http://s22.postimg.org/ti7v9izkx/ht6unbrick2.png
C) Select scatter loading button - http://s22.postimg.org/ttpbmag0x/ht6unbrick3.png
D) Navigate to extracted STOCK ROM folder and sellect android scatter file - http://s22.postimg.org/y1k3v1hgh/ht6unbrick4.png
E) Make sure - all things like system,recovery,userdata,preloader,tee1,tee2,etc are checked, select download only and select Download button with green arrow. - http://s22.postimg.org/r261vohi9/ht6unbrick5.png
F) Make sure your phone is still powered OFF. Now you must connect phone to PC with Original USB cable
G) flashing proces should start - http://s22.postimg.org/ixxxqxv35/ht6unbrick6.png on the bottom of flashtool you can see yellow bar with percentage.
H) When process is finished - green symbol will appear - http://s22.postimg.org/8p5gl471d/ht6unbrick7.png
I) Now you can close this window, unplug your phone and close flashtool application.
J) You can power on your phone. First boot is little bit longer than normal boot, so just wait until android will boot completely.
K) Enjoy :)

Touchscreen Fix Tutorial
By Spoooky1


I finally got success to recover my touchscreen so I submit my tutorial.

First, there is no need for some chineses softwares like 360??? (setup_10.2.0.2001a.exe or instmobilemgr.exe). The really most important is :

- a HT6 rooted
- a PC with adb drivers installed
- download HT6digitizer.zip, unzip it on the desktop (for instance)

Step 1 : power on the HT6 with a BT mouse (or a USB mouse plugged with OTG cable) and go to :
Settings -> Developer options -> enable Stay awake and USB debugging (both are very important !)


Step 2 : connect the HT6 and the PC with a USB cable
on the PC, go to HT6digitizer folder and launch a MSDOS window (in admin mode) then type adb devices inside
if your HT6 is unauthorized then take a look at your HT6 and go next step, else go to step 5

Step 3 : the most difficult without a BT mouse ! :crying:
This popup should appear and you have to select "Always allow from this computer" and click OK


Step 4 : If the previous job is well done, type again adb devices and now your HT6 is authorised (else disconnect the HT6 and go back to Step 2)


Step 5 : type adb shell ls /proc/gm* in the MSDOS window and NOTE the result (very important !!)

(the result is /proc/gmnode20160312 in my case)

Step 6 : On the PC, go to HT6digitizer folder and launch GtpAdbTool_ENU.exe (in admin mode)
Fill the popup with the previous result and click on Determine button


Step 7 : then IC type and IC version should appear. Click on Browse button

Step 8 : choose the GT9157_Config_20160305_225004.cfg file and click on Open (Ouvrir in french :angel: )


Step 9 : select Send config and click on Perform operation


Step 10 : Finish ! all is green, you can use your touchscreen :cool:



Special Thanks to : kalipso888 , Ax1qwer , flasource_ , Zeggi :good:

Hello.Does anyone know if this power bank http://www.banggood.com/Qualcomm-Ce...2W-Quick-Charge-2_0-Power-Bank-p-1004535.html support fast charge for homtom ht6?
or any other powerbank that supports it? Because now i have a romoss sense 4 which gives in output 5v 2.1A but ht6 charges very slow.

Hi, I am using Xiaomi 10400mah powerbank and charging is fast.

HT6 using Mediatek Pump Express fast charging technology and I think it is not compatible with Qualcomm Quick charge. But maybe I am wrong.

Hi! Using this smartphone I noticed that the data network connection (E, H+, 3G, 4G...) is shown REALLY LARGE in the status bar. Is there any way to make that disappear? Thanks!

I think icon can be deleted via Xposed, but there is no working Xposed for HT6 now, we must wait for clear AOSP custom ROM, xposed should be running fine on it.

Now xposed is not working on HT6.

Edit: TWRP flashing and ROOTING tutorial added in second post :)

You can install Xposed using xposed 3.0 alpha 4 and flashing xposed 79__ver22.zip from twrp. You can find the how to on xda. Im currently running xposed on my HT6. Thanks for your flashing guide.

Easiest way to root the ht6 is to download update.zip for the stockrom, go to settings-about-wireless update-menu and select local update-choose the update.zip file and select update. It should flash from there.

I installed xposed apk, after it I flashed TWRP via SPflash tool, I booted in TWRP and flashed xposed zip and supersu.zip, but my phone is in bootloop now. I am using latest R14 ROM., I think this xposed is not working on HT6.

You should have installed SuperSU before flashing xposed. I am using the R14 firmware with xposed and running xprivacy so I know for sure that xposed is working. My phone has entered a form of bootloop where it tries to optimize apps but this doesnt happen very often and sometimes it ceases when left alone. Anyways those are the steps I followed to get xposed working.

Yes, I know - my mistake. I uninstalled Xposed and flashed it again, but still reboots on android is upgraging screen :(

EDIT: Many and many reboots, but it seems Xposed is working and phone boots up sucessfully :) But about 15, maybe more reboots.
