Hello,
Does anyone have a U8 watch from Gearbest?
I got one and I managed to brick it.
Now is working, but is not the original firmware I think, because whatever notification app I install on the phone, the watch keeps asking to install bt notifier.
I've read the firmware from the watch before flashing, but already bricked.
Opened the file in NP++ and I found the following interesting line:
Code:
[B]T1_L3_G10_20160128......!yM_.....3H.11CW1352MP X6_M_RB8A_7735S..........NONE[/B]
I think this is the original firmware.
The watch is with MT6261MA and has a 3 Mb flash...
This is the watch... www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_28983.html
So if anyone have this firmware version on the watch, please make a backup for me. :)
Thanks in advance!

Hello . I have a U8 clone marked Endubro that i somehow managed :mad: to brick.
The Maui META info is :
[Version]
BaseBand chip version=MT6261
ECO version=
DSP firmware version=2000.00.00
DSP patch version=1.0
Software version=MAUI.11C.W13.52.MP.V5
Hardware version=EIDOLON61D_BT_11C_HW
Melody version=Unknown

Fortunately i have a second one and i managed to make a dump of the Rom but when trying to extract with fw_splitter i get no VIVA file.
I think i have tried all the rom i found here with no success ..... at best the U8 started and after turning on Bluetooth it shuts off ...
Can someone please help me by extracting the files so i can unbrick my clone and if possible a scatter file ?

I attached the rom dump and a picture of what i get with fw_splitter

Thank you in advance.
.
Try this...

At least the calls are working...
Please let me know if you find a working ROM.
You haven't made a backup, same as me?

I tried another version of flashtool, and it's worked!
I made a backup from the original firmware, I have a 4MB bin file, but I don't know how should I flash back to the watch.
The original plan was flash the firmware, which contains all EU languages, but unfortunately it is for 6260, mine is MT6261DA.

If somebody has information how to make a flashable files, please share me, and I will share my firmware.

Hello guys,

I'd like to flash a new ROM to my U8 smartwatch (chipset : MT6261DA), but I got this error message:

BROM ERROR : S_BROM_CMD_STARTCMD_FAIL (2005)
[BROM] Can not pass bootrom start command!

Why is that? The flash tool find the COM port, I think the drivers good.
I try different USB ports and cables.

Please give me a solution, thanks!

Hi Guys

I have been reading through the thread but seem to have got myself confused.

I have a U8 Clone, MT6261DA Chipset, and would like to backup my rom before I do anything to it. I have managed to get Maui Meta to read the version. (see pics)

How do I get Flashtool to read the ROM from my watch??

I'm running Windows 10 64Bit

Use fw_splitter

Thanks, but how it's work? Sorry but I'm not expert.
Fw_splitter asks: "how many parts do you want to split the file in?"
If I choose 4, then creates filename.001, filname.002 and so on...

For example, the U80Reset ROM contains:

extBL
ROM
BL.bin
OVIPHONE60M_11B_BB.cfg

How can I get these kind of files?

Thank you very much!

Sorry for late response. Today I tried the command for fw_splitter, but something is wrong, but in the tutorial, what you linked, with the ReadbackExtractor I made flashable files for Flashtool, and is working fine. So thanks for your help!

The next step is getting a firmware with hungarian language. I think it will be harder... :D

Just load "config_mtk.cfg" in flasher, and you can restore it.
Regarding the tutorial, look here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/sma.../readback-extractor-mtk6260-firmware-t3289272
For fw_splitter: "fw_splitter dump_name -m (enter)"
I don't know how to integrate languages...

Ok, thanks. If not too much time, can you write me the method? I'm so curious.

Anyway, is it possible to integrate another language file to my ROM?

Thanks.

Pliss add no reset backup files
