In this tutorial I will show How To Make a backup on whole system and whole partitions of Alcatel One Touch STAR, Alcatel IDOL, Alcatel XPOP, MPOP, SPOP and other MTK Android devices with by means of SP FLASH TOOL.

Why do we need backup ?
Тhe answer is very simple backup is necessary for the following cases:
- If you have deleted or modified some files from phone after root.
- If you experiment with phone system files.
- If you need to return it for warranty for any reason it is necessary to have a default system files on your phone as it was purchased.
- Or just for any case, just you have a backup of whole system partitions files and folders.

Let's create a Backup!
First you need to download:
  • MTK drivers - link
  • Sp Flash Tool(backup & flashing MTK devices program) - link
  • I provide my scatter file from Alcatel One Touch STAR 6010X (if you have device with MT6575 or other chipset use your own scatter) or if you want to know how to create scatter file check this tutorial on my blog - my scatter download link

1.Open Flash_Tool.exe from Sp Flash Tool zip archive.
2.Go to top to file and select Open Scatter-loading file and find scatter file.

It does not end there at next post I will show you how to split created backup to ready for restore from Sp Flash Tool.


My back up started only when I removed the battery and placed it back in.

I hav error that: these files (preloader, bootimg, etc. "are checked, but without path"). I loaded scatter, drivers are installed, tried trick with battery but no result. Seems that program doesn't see my phone... Also, for backup I should press "download", right?

Thanks alot for this tutorial. Could you please add, that the phone has to be turned off before the backup is started.

El backup sirve para otro telefono igual ej Alcatel Idol 6030A o solamente para el mismo que se le realizo el backup, tengo un tel. que necesita volver a la rom original, pero no tiene un backup , con un telefono igual es posible copiar la ROM, o se cambia el Imei del telefono?.

ti does not work for my alcatel one touch idol 6030a.
