After then switch off your phone.


Step 2:  Extract the Stock ROM folder where you want then Extract and open the SP Tool. and run Sptool.exe Run as Administrator


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.


Step 4:  Now You will see two options for flashing Rom, first is “firmware upgrade” option which is used to update or flash your Rom without deleting your data and second one is “Download” option this is work for format your phone then flash Stock Rom ( like fresh Rom installation). 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 6: Now Sptool start downloading Stock Rom in your phone by flashing.


Note: Don’t interrupt this process as it can potentially brick your device. Make sure no power interruption takes place.

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


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

  17. after the flashng is complete
    goto recovery
    wipe cache/reset
    wipe dalvik cache
    thiz is the final step after flashing or else you get stuck in the boot animation

  18. hii abhishek
    it is new p18 baseband version
    why micromax not provide this update OTA
    for your fast reply it is very good blog

    1. Hi abhishek

      we want OTA update but this service not available in Micromax.
      latest micromax should provide this update officially on his site like mobistel
      and they should provide stock recovery flash-able file like mobistel
      in this type update have no risk
      but Micromax is Micromax !!!
