How to backup 64 bit mediatek

MTK droid tools 2.5.3 is still outdated and has not been updated, so its a bit complicated right now.

so lets get started :

1) Make sure phone has root shell access (rooted) , if you dont have root then please root with IROOT and install superSU+ binaries.

2) Make sure USB debugging is enabled on the smartphone

3) Download MTK droid tools 2.5.3

4) install PDAnet abd driver package

5) run MTK droid tools and open a new ADB SHELL.

a) Type ADB Devices to see if your phone is detected
b) type adb shell df and determine the biggest partition
c) note down the path of the biggest partition
d) check the code below and replace path with your path. Use external sd if possible.

use those ADB commands to backup every single image :

adb shell mkdir -p /storage/sdcard0/SPFT

adb shell su -c “dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0boot0 of=/storage/sdcard0/SPFT/preloader.bin bs=512c count=512 skip=4”
adb shell su -c “dd if=/dev/block/platform/mtk-msdc.0/by-name/boot of=/storage/sdcard0/SPFT/boot.img”
adb shell su -c “dd if=/dev/block/platform/mtk-msdc.0/by-name/cache of=/storage/sdcard0/SPFT/cache.img”
adb shell su -c “dd if=/dev/block/platform/mtk-msdc.0/by-name/lk of=/storage/sdcard0/SPFT/lk.bin”
adb shell su -c “dd if=/dev/block/platform/mtk-msdc.0/by-name/logo of=/storage/sdcard0/SPFT/logo.bin”
adb shell su -c “dd if=/dev/block/platform/mtk-msdc.0/by-name/recovery of=/storage/sdcard0/SPFT/recovery.img”
adb shell su -c “dd if=/dev/block/platform/mtk-msdc.0/by-name/secro of=/storage/sdcard0/SPFT/secro.img”
adb shell su -c “dd if=/dev/block/platform/mtk-msdc.0/by-name/system of=/storage/sdcard0/SPFT/system.img”
adb shell su -c “dd if=/dev/block/platform/mtk-msdc.0/by-name/userdata of=/storage/sdcard0/SPFT/userdata.img”

it should copy all the images if you enter the commands line by line. Always wait until you get feedback from ADB

if you get read only use those commands :

mount -o rw,remount rootfs /

chmod 777 /mnt/sdcard

change path of sd card to real path !!

After this reboot with ADB command “reboot” or exit and manual reboot.

You should now have your images in a folder called SPFT on your smartphone.

    • You can't generate scatter file in SPFT…use mtkdroidtools or mtkrom studio..but unfortunately mtkdroidtools still outdated for 64bit device.

    • thanks bro.. yes unfortunately MTKDroid doesn't work for my mt6732.. so I am looking for other options..

    • Sometimes scatter file are included in the update of your phone. Just download manually and extract the file.
