N8000 screen issues

Hello all total noob trying to get my head around all this.
I have a Star n8000 which i bought second hand and that came with a problem were by parts of the screen on the right hand side were unresponsive but this has got quite a lot worse.
At first i was thinking it may be that i needed a new digitiser but have come to the conclusion this is not so. When i turn the phone on i can use all of the screen to open apps but when i use the apps or widget screens about a centimetre all the way down the right hand side of the screen is totally unresponsive which tells me it is not a digitiser problem but something else and a couple of days ago the back button has also packed up working as well.
Its is a
Android 4.0.4
Baseband version MAUI.11AMD.W11.50.SP.V14, 2012/07/27 20:01
Kernel version 3.0.13
Build number E1808_V75_JBL1_5640_20120730

Am i right in thinking it is a software problem and that i will need to root the phone and install a new rom or am i even more ignorant than i think i am which is very.
Am absolutely terified of bricking this as i am totally without any kind of funds to replace it due to not working for the last 5 years due to health problems.
Any advice is much appreciated.
Have a good day all.

Ive Come Across The MTK6577 Stock ROM/Image That Can Be Flashed Via SP Flash Tool.
This Is For The N8000+ MTK6577 Only.
also,is it possible to just use DSIXDAs ROM kitchen to cook a ROM for this phone?
and what would it take to get a custom kernel/OC kernel for this?
from what i understand we're looking at a 1GHz Cortex A9 Processor.this must be overclockable.

Stock Rom files wanted please

Struggling with drivers

I hope everyone is well.
Been doing loads of reading and have managed to root the phone and download the nessasary files but am really struggling to install mtk 6575 drivers onto my windows 7 pc.
I know there not installed as when i load scatter file in bruno martins guide then hit download nothing at all happens.
I downloaded the mt6575 usb vcom drivers from brunos tools at 4shared but i dont know the process of how or were and with which program to install them, I am windows 7 64 bit.
Been struggling with this for a full day and just feel brain smacked.
I have read a lot of post regarding the same issue and have tried loads of the advice but still no joy.
It should be simple but its not as simple as me.
Any ideas guys?
Have a good day

Video Tutorials

Hello Everyone!!!!

It's been a long time since I've visited this thread.
Well, it is because I already grew tired of my Star N8000 and bought a Samsung Galaxy Grand.
My phone is just lying around in the drawer.

The reason for this is because my screen broke again, and unlike before, I broke bot the digitizer and the lcd (outer screen and inner screen).
I was able to replace it on my own after buying replacement lcd and digitzer from aliexpress.

My problem is that after I did that, the old display drivers I was using did not work for the new LCD. I managed to select a different driver to make it work, but then all the troubles began.

My phone gets super hot and then reboots all the time to protect itself. If I only use it for texting, calling, no issues. But once I turn on the internet, it gets super hot then the phone will just continue rebooting until I turn it off, take off the battery and let it cool down for a few minutes.
It was very frustrating.

If you have seen on my previous posts, I was already planning to create complete step by step video tutorials in flashing our beloved phone.
I never got to finish it because I was in the middle of doing it when I broke my phone.

However, I have been receiving messages from some of our members asking me if I ever finished the video. The last one being @kph1966.
So even though I never got to finish it, might as well post here those that I did.

Part 1 - Issues & Tools
Part 2 - Installing Windows Drivers
Others: Replacing broken digitizer screen (outer screen only)

If anyone may be able to tell me how to fix my phone overheating, I will love to get back to it and complete the tutorials.

Hi there Jpalpano! Thanks for the detailed steps... I have tried them many times with a variety of drivers, but to no avail... Every time I get to step 7-8 on the first set up or the second set up, my computer just says 'the specified location does not contain any information about your hardware'.

I'm pretty sure I've deleted all previous drivers in USBDeview... I do have a USB used for my Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse... which does have a yellow question mark by 'Driver Interface, when I click the 'Show Hidden Devices' in the 'View' tab.

This is soooo frustrating as my phone needs flashing and doesn't currently work properly!!!

I'd be eternally grateful for any advice!

Thanks in advance for your help!

Best regards, Karlos!

P.S. you can see other things I've tried on posts 1531, 1533 -1539 and 1543 of this thread!

Hi there. This will only be due to incorrect driver. Have you tried the video tutorial Ive made? It's somewhere on this thread as well.

    MT6575 Driver Installtion Step by Step

    I have experienced so much frustration installing the drivers for the first time, in order to use it with SP-Flash Tool and SP-MDT Tool.
    It took a lot of research, trial and error, and hair-pulling activities before I was able to finally do it.

    So to help our newbies out there, I hope this guide may help you.

    This is for you if your problem is:
    • The Flasht Tool or SP-MDT Tool cannot detect your phone.
    • When you plug your phone, you hear it connecting, and disconnecting immediately in Windows.
    • Your phone goes into connecting and disconnecting state.
    • Your phone can be flashed via the SP-Flash Tool, but not through the SP-MDT Tool

    The Basics:
    There are actually 2 different types of drivers for this phone:
    1. The USB driver
    - You need to have this installed in order for you to use it via ADB Devices, USB Debugging mode, TPSparky Root tool, etc.
    - This driver is needed for activities where the phone remains turned on.
    - The component of this driver will appear as MT65xx ADB Interface device
    2. The Preloader driver
    - You need to have this installed in order for you to use it with the Flashing Tool and SP-MDT Tool
    - This driver is needed for activities where the phone is turned off.
    - There are two components of this driver: The Meditatek USB VCOM driver and the Mediatek USB DA VCOM driver

    The Tools:
    There are two types of tools you can use for updating this phone:
    1. The SP-Flash Tool
    - This is easier to use as long as you have correctly installed the device drivers
    - This is recommended for flashing only a few parts of the ROM, like for example, changing only the recovery, uboot, and boot images.
    2. The SP-MDT Tool
    - This is an advanced tool which allows you to set the display drivers
    - The installation of the driver is a little more complex for this tool in order for your phone to be detected
    - If you are able to successfully flash using the SP-Flashtool, but then your display is black, wrong color, twisted, etc, this tool is what you need.

    There are a lot of people who are able to successfully install drivers and flash using the SP-Flashtool,
    but to no success when using the SP-MDT tool.
    In my experience, once I got to make the SP-MDT tool work, I had no use for SP-Flashtool anymore.

    The Procedure
    First of all, if you have installed the drivers already, and think it doesn't work, I recommend to clear out all
    Android drivers you have installed using the USB Deview tool.
    Delete all those drivers there that starts with MT.
    Also delete any other drivers you might have installed for your old or other Android Devices.

    ADB Interface Device
    1. Turn your phone on and switch on the USB Debuggin mode under Settings>Developer Options.
    2. Plug your phone to your computer
    3. On the Hardware Update Wizard, select Install from a specific list or specific location (Advanced) option. Click Next.
    4. Choose Don't search. I will choose the driver to install option. Click Next.
    5. On the Hardware Type screen, select Show All Devices then click Next. (Some of you may not see this screen)
    6. Click the Have Disk... button.
    7. On the pop-up, click the Browse button and look for the android_winusb.inf driver in your hard drive (link below).
      Open it then Click OK.
    8. Click the Next button and wait for Windows to install the driver.
    9. You may be notified by windows about failure for driver verification, just select Continue Anyway
    10. Once done, it should successfully install the driver.
    11. Check if you phone can be detected now via the ADB Devices.

    You can now use the TPSparky root tool to root your phone and install SuperUser.

    USB VCOM and USB DA VCOM drivers
    • Launch your Device Manager and Expand the Ports (COM & LPT) section.
    • Resize the screen ofyour Device Manager in a way that you see the Ports section without having to scroll down the window.
    • Make this window always visible. Do not minimize it.

    PART 1
    1. Turn off your phone and remove the battery.
    2. Plug your phone into your PC and wait for it to be detected.
    3. Windows should automatically bring up the Hardware Update Wizard.
      If it did not, that means you have not totally deleted the old drivers using the USB Deview tool.
    4. On the Hardware Update Wizard, select Install from a specific list or specific location (Advanced) option. Click Next.
    5. Choose Don't search. I will choose the driver to install option. Click Next.
    6. On the Hardware Type screen, select Show All Devices then click Next. (Some may not see this screen)
    7. Click the Have Disk... button.
    8. On the pop-up, click the Browse button and look for the driver in your hard drive. Open it then Click OK.
    9. Click the Next button and wait for Windows to install the driver.
    10. You may be notified by windows about failure for driver verification, just select Continue Anyway
    11. Once done, it should successfully install the driver.
    12. The device manager should refresh and you should see the driver in the Ports section.
      But then you will notice it will disappear, and you will hear the USB disconnected sound right away. This is alright.

    PART 2
    1. Disconnect your phone from USB
    2. Insert the battery back
    3. Plug your phone into the computer again.
    4. You should be prompted for the drivers again.
    5. Follow the same steps above and use the same driver file.
    6. Once installed, the phone will disappear from Device Manager again. That is alright. Do not worry.

    After Parts 1 and 2 above, you should have been able to install both the USB VCOM and USB DA VCOM drivers.
    You should now be able to flash using both of the flash tools.

    SP-Flashtool can detect it but not SP-MDT tool
    In order for SP-MDT tool to work, your driver should be installed between COM1 and COM16.
    If not, then SP-MDT cannot flash your phone.

    To solve it, you must force assign the COM port for your phone.
    These steps are a little tricky so you must have quick hands.
    1. Turn off your phone and disconnect from your computer
    2. Remove battery for a few seconds, then put it back. Don't turn on.
    3. On your device manager, focus your eyes on the Ports section
    4. Connect your phone to the USB.
    5. The device manager shall refresh and you should see your phone under the Ports section with the COM# in parenthesis (ex: COM8).
      If the COM# of your phone is COM17 and up, then we have to change it.
      Your eyes should be quick because this will disappear in a few seconds.
    6. Disconnect again the phone from USB.
    7. Remove battery again, then put it back.
    8. Now, position your mouse over the part where you saw your phone in the Ports section.
    9. Connect your phone to the USB.
    10. When the Device Manager refreshes and shows your devices, immediately double click it before it disappears again.
    11. The properties of the device should now pop-up.
    12. Click the Port Setttings tab and click the Advanced.. button.
    13. On the bottom of the new window is a COM Port Number drop-down menu, showing the current port # assigned to your phone.
    14. Click the drop-down and select any available COM ports between COM1 and COM16. (I used COM8 with mine).
    15. Click OK, then OK again.
    16. Disconnect and Reconnect your phone again and make sure that device manager already show it under the COM# you assigned.
    17. Your device should now be detected by the SP-MDT Tool.
    This method is rather troublesome. If your SP-Flash Tool is already working, then stick with it. It is not sensitive to the COM# port number.
    If you just want to set the correct drivers, simply open the scatter file of the ROM you want to flash with SP-MDT Tool, set the drivers, then exit SP-MDT Tool.
    What it does is it saves that setting somehow in the uboot of the ROM.
    Then open SP-Flashtool, open the scatter file of the same ROM you set with MDT earlier, flash the uboot.bin.
    It should flash the uboot with the proper driver setting you made in SP-MDT tool.

    If this steps have helped you, I will really appreciate if you thank me using the Thanks button, before just replying to my post and saying thanks.
