    1. To flash a custom ROM you must have a custom recovery on your phone like CWM, TWRP or Philz.
      Copy the custom ROM to your SDcard
      Boot into the custom recovery
      select install from zip
      select the custom ROM and wait for it to install

The engineers tell me they successfully downloaded the software needed for flashing but the PC cannot detect my phone at all and that I probably would never be able to use the phone again..... please help me.

  61. pls i ve a Tecno z mini which displays invalid imei and also hangs after few minuets of turning on. At times it hangs with a blur screen and when it does that nothing responds until the battery drains off.
    Pls what should I do? THANKS

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For the imei issue you can easily solve It using mtk engineering app.
      For your hanging problem, you can flash the device using its stock rom and see if it solves the problem.

      Note that not all hanging problem is as a result of the phone software. Sometimes after using most mtk devices for long period of time lets say a year, small amount of heat can cause the chip inside the device to pull up a bit making the phone to freeze till the next reboot. In this case the chips are needed to be padded with pieces of paper or something else.
