HOW TO INSTALL :
To install this custom recovery, you need SPFlashTool program which only available on winblows os platform so … really sorry, I cannot support it because I never use and don’t have winblows. You may refer to this tutorial : MT65xx Flashing Tutorial it is very well explained by Bruno Martin.
Please be really careful using SPFlashTool, especially when flashing ROM not for your device, since it may bricked your device forever.
Scatter file you might need : MT6737M_M6_Android_scatter.tar.gz
Put the recovery img and the scatter txt file on a new folder. Run the spflashtool, select those scatter txt file and then flash the recovery img.
HOW TO REBOOT INTO CUSTOM RECOVERY :
To enter the custom recovery mode is pretty easy on this model, just completely power off the device until you feel the device vibrate, indicating it was totally shutdown. Then, hold down Volume Up button then press Power button, hold them both until you see 3 menu list appear, Recovery, Fastboot and Normal.
Scroll or choose between item using Vol up button and select them using Vol down button. On this case, choose Recovery then press Vol up button, wait a sec or two … then you’ll be entering recovery mode. There are also many apk on playstore such as Quickboot, RecoveryTool, … etc, that can do reboot into recovery directly from alive system, use any one you like.
HOW TO ROOT :
After installing this custom recovery, you can install root and Superuser as usual, I recommend to use latest chainfire SuperSU
- On a first install this custom recovery, you have to enter the recovery mode immediately after flashing, otherwise the stock rom system protection will restore back the stock recovery and you lose what you just did. This is only one time, once you enter the recovery and installing supersu root or my custom rom, the custom recovery will stay in place.
