This article discusses in detail how to flash Tecno Android Mobile Phones. Anyway, before we go ahead with the tutorial, I would like to generally explain what the word “flashing” simply means.

What is Flashing?

Flashing in mobile phone repair is a word used by software repair engineers to refer to a state of restoring the original factory firmware setting (Factory Reset) by reinstalling a fresh or backed up copy of the firmware or by installing a custom firmware (Third Party Built) in the mobile device. Flashing can also be used to install only a portion of the entire firmware components or to install certain apps directly into the phone’s Rom which will make them unable to be removed without a root access granted. In this post, we shall be covering only ROM or Firmware flashing.

Why Mobile Phones are flashed

The reasons behind people’s decisions to flash their mobile phones varies among individuals. This may include the following;

  • To Fix a major or minor firmware errors and malfunctions. So many times, we found our mobile phones malfunctioning due to certain firmware errors and bugs. Sometimes, partial flashing may be required to fix the problem while full flashing may be required in other cases.
  • To Unbrick a Bricked Android device. Some times, we brick our android devices when we try to carry out some operations on them like flashing a new firmware, rooting, incomplete factory resetting, installing and running of some root apps (mostly common in MTK android devices like Tecno products). When this kind of problem occurs, Flashing may be required to fix it.
  • To Upgrade/Downgrade an existing firmware version. Some times, we may lost the privilege to receive OTA software upgrade due to certain activities we perform on our device. For example, rooting and installing of a custom firmware. When this is the case, we would the to flash any new update in our devices.
  • To install a custom firmware. A custom firmware is a third party firmware built to be compatible with our devices and take the place of the stock firmware which is the original factory installed firmware.
  • etc

Now, Back to the  business of the day;

    This is a problem that occurs sometimes when you flash MTK phones like Tecno, but you do not have to worry as it is not difficult to solve. Use MobileUncle or Engineer Mode android app to re-add your IMEI numbers. You can read up how to use these apps here: http://www.androwide.com/2015/07/recover-lost-imei-number-of-android.html
