Now here is a funny story
I came across a tool on irulu.net's download for a tablet similar to mine, funny thing is, they named it IMEI tool, which was the IMEI tool, but it was like finding gold at the end of the rainbow, also had the kernel for a MTK6572 tablet. I asked them about it but they replied with it wasn't for mine, they didn't know what it was.
I had somewhat of an idea and decided to play with it, did a dd against the kernel in linux it it actually showed that it was android 4.6 pre-release, hmmm now I had to see what would happen and flashed it using SPflash, brick, wouldn't even turn on. So I reflashed back to my original firmware that, of course was backed up from MTKDroid Tools.
Not sure why but SPFlash flashed everything back to the phone, it turned on but I was stuck in some kind of limbo between the old kernel and the new kernel. Seemed to update it by keeping the newer firmware but didn't reflash the old firmware. Worked, just some Apps were not compatible and the screen rotation was backwards. When I tried opening some apps the screen just went blank and froze.
What was cool is that the EBR1 and MBR from their kernel actually extended my internal storage from 504mb to 1.2gb, sweet, and decreased my phone storage from 2.11gb to 1.32gb. Luckily I had another nandroid backup that was done and saved to my PC using nandroid from the play store, you can never have to many backups. The backup restored my system, userdata etc but still have that shiney new EBR1 and MBR.
When I try to do file cynwig nothing happens and linux just shows x86 boot sector with no values.
Something else that is baffeling is, how is it that the original was 502mb internal meory with 2.11 internal storage, doesn't make sense. Now the new files give me 1.2gb with the 1.32gb internal storage. Makes me wonder if I could just jack somebody else's EBR1 and MBR from a 6589 devices.
Something else I was wondering, what I I partitioned a usb stick or sdcard the way I wanted my internal storage for apps to be, the way my phone storage is already configured, duplicated that MTKDroid tools is showing. Next in HXD, opened extras and selected the disk to read as hex, then saved it as a new EBR and MBR. Next flashed it, wouldn't that be easier if possible?
Did compared it against the tablet's original EBR1 and MBR and found the differance, both are attached. Just cannot seem to grasp how it is done.
If anybody want''s to use the new MBR and EBR1 on their mtk6572, go ahead, it will probably work on their china mtk6572 tablet, that is if you have less then 1.02gb of internal storage.
