  6. sushant charhate says:

    is there any charges for update the Version at service center. still mobile under warranty

  7. I am a novice. Hence theses elementary questions. In your guide “Flashing Through SPTOOLS”,
    point no. 8 says “After the file is loaded make sure every tab is selected and then click on Firmware Upgrade.” What does the PC say at this point.
    Then at point 9 you suggested “Turn off your phone and pull a battery out. Hold Volume Up + Volume Down + Power button simultaneously and connect the device to your PC”.
    Is it correct to assume that
    1. till stage 9 the phone is not connected to the PC?
    2. the battery is reinserted before pressing volume up+volume down+power button?
    3. and only after these steps, the phone is connected to pc for it to be detected by flashing tool?
    As I don’t want to take chance with the device, seeking help for elaboration, please.
    Thanks.

  8. And also, through this method, is it true that the device goes back to stock rom (un-rooted) and warranty is restored?

    If I’m not wrong following are the three methods:

    2. FLASHING through STOCK Recovery (Standalone Method i.e. without installing Mobile Uncle MTK Tools)
    3. FLASHING through SPTools (Standalone Method i.e. without installing Mobile Uncle MTK Tools)

    I want to install the JB Update through STOCK Recovery, please tell me how to backup the Stock ROM before flashing by Method 2.

    Thanks.

  39. Vithal Kulkarni says:

    I have 2 questions
    1. Does my device need to be rooted if I choose this method: Flashing Through SPTOOLS
    2. Taking out battery means really should I take out battery from the device and press V+ V- and power button simultaniously and connect it with PC or what. This point is not cleared. Thats why nothing is happening after hard try.
    Kindly extend your help.

    I have a Canvas 2 bought in April 2013. It was running OS 4.0.4. Today I had taken to authorised service center here in Bangalore and they updated the phone to 4.1.1. But issue is after the upgrade, when I insert my 32 GB Verbatim make microSD card, it’s being detected as a ‘Damaged card’ and only option available is to “Format”. All my data was backed up in my microSD card and now I am unable to access it. When I ask the service center, they simply say, that I should have copied all my data in my PC before giving the phone!
    Now I am in a Fix and let me know ASAP how to resolve this issue???
