I was finally able to help someone with this phone today after looking for months for someone to give me a dump.

Used UnlockTool to flash it to fix my soft brick, but I don't see why spflashtool couldn't do it.

Enjoy!

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

I have a TCL A30 w/ very similiar specs. Can you point me to the process you used to generate the scatter file.?

Thanks.

disable signature enforcement

i installed mediatek vcom drivers manually. should get a prompt if you want to install if driver signature enforcement is off.

open spflashtool

click on download

load the scatter file from the downloaded folder

click download

I did it without the battery, but I don't know if it matters


just plug it in while the phone is off

if all the planets align it should flash :)

Thanks. I'm "All LInux" and it looks like the tools you used were "Window only". I've used mtkclient (python based) and have been able to pull some locked information on the TCL A30 - battery and sim-card in.
It just is not as detailed as your posting.
