How to use flash/upgrade MTK Smart Watch and MTK Feature Phones using FlashTool

This is just another tool from MediaTek to flash smart watch & feature phones with MTK chips. Do not confuse this with SP Flash Tool this one works on devices with MT62xx chips and for me this tool is way too easy to use than MultiportDownloadTool. You can use this tool to flash devices whose firmware is either in scatter file .txt or .cfg .
To flash smart watches and other devices with MT62XX chips using this tool, just follow the steps below.

Download and install MTK usb drivers here
Download FlashTool V5.1424.00 here

Launch Flash_Tool.exe
Click OK on the dialogue box that pops up
Click on Scatter/Config File icon
Navigate and select the folder of the firmware you want to use.
Locate and select the .cfg or scatter.txt file inside this folder
Now click Download button or Press F9 on keyboard.


Now insert battery into the phone and connect to PC with USB cord.
When phone is detected, flashing process will begin.
It takes just few seconds to complete (depending on the size of the firmware).
A circle with tick will appear showing flash process is successful.
Disconnect the phone from PC and take out battery.
Insert battery into phone again and boot it up.

That’s all you have just successfully flashed your mtk feature phone.

If the device does not have network after flash, check if it has null/invalid imei by dailing *#06#.
Follow the tutorial here to fix null/invalid imei problems on mtk feature phones.
