Step 3: You will see an SP tool window, now click on the scatter-Loading option in the SP tool. Then you will get the new tab of SP Tool which you ask the location of the scatter file on your PC. You will find this scatter file in the extracted Stock ROM folder. Now go to the Rom folder and select the file “Android_scatter_emmc.txt”. See in this image.

So choose according to your requirement and I suggest, click on the “Download” option and flash fresh Rom on your phone.

Step 5: Now connect your switch off phone to the PC via USB cable  (Make sure your phone is switched off). SP Tool detect your phone and process will start. See in blow image. If Sptool is not recognize/detect your phone then install vcom driver read this post it will help you click here  (Driver already in phone flash drive if you don’t have these drivers then install it)

Step 7:  After the process complete, a green ring will appear.


Step 8: Disconnect your phone. Now your phone is updated.

Note: After Flashing or updating from 4.1.1 to 4.2.1 you will get a TP UPDATE popup which will update your phone TP automatically. So, don’t touch your phone touch panel while the TP is being updated, otherwise your phone may be some TP problem.

    1. Hi Yashwanth

      update process will work without Enable debugging mode but safe side it must be on. In case phone is damage during this process then phone service center alive your phone by debugging mode.

  1. I was doing this but for some reason, every time I download, the red bar fills in a few seconds but then nothing else happens…. the timer keeps running but the meter stays at 100% red. What should I do?

    Any help would be appreciated.

  5. Sir ji my MMX a116 is locked by pattern lock by mistake.n its not be open with my gmail I'd.pls help me what can I do?

    1. 1. Go to the Android Market download page on your desktop and install the app. (Yes, you are able to install apps using your desktop instead of your phone) (note: You need to login to the Android Market using your Google username and password that you used when you first set up your phone. This is the username and password that “should have” unlocked your phone in the first place.)

      2. Select the phone you have (this is why you need to login with the right Google ID) and install the app. Wait about 5 minutes or restart your phone and wait a good amount of time for the app to fully install.

      3. On the app instructions, it says to install any other app to trigger the Screen Lock Bypass app. I did not do this but for me, restarting the phone, waiting, soft off and on seemed to trigger it. (may have been triggered by a message though, this is the part where it unexpectedly blanked and disabled my screen for a good while.)

      4. If it worked and bypassed the “too many pattern attempts” screen, go to phone Settings and then select Accounts & Sync.

      5. Under Manage Accounts, remove all accounts except your Google account. (this should enable your Google username and password)

      6. Go to Settings and select Applications, then Manage Applications.

      7. Find Screen Lock Bypass and uninstall the app. (this will trigger the “too many pattern attempts” screen immediately)

      8. Use your original Google username and password to finally unlock your phone properly.

      9. Enter your new security pattern twice to finish!
