Flashing Custom ROMs, installing unofficial updates or firmwares, can easily destroy (brick) phone’s system. This often make devices unable to boot again. Thus making a CWM backup of your device is always useful.
This tutorial is based on restoring bricked MTK android smart phones using CWM backups.

Make sure your device have at least 25% battery life.
If CWM is already installed on the device just scroll down to second part of this tutorial.
