Cherry Mobile Superion Radar stock rom/firmware to unbrick your tablet

Hey ho! Cherry Mobile Superion Radar came to my workplace. And guess what. I have a new tutorial :D The tablet i fixed had a forgotten pattern lock. What I did first was to hard reset the tablet. But I was unable to fixed it. So my last resort was to reflash the tablet. 

This tablet has an MTK chip. We will use Flashtool to unbrick or remove password, pin, gmail account. There is a trick to fully fix the tablet. Just follow my tutorial Im sure you will fix your tablet too :)





You can fix the following issue in your phone:
1. Bootloop
2. Damaged System UI
3. TP Upgrade only
4. Dead phone but it is detected in computer
5. Remove Gmail Account / Password / Pattern Lock (Alternative Way)

Firmware Here -->Cherry Mobile Superion Radar V2
VCOM Driver -->VCOM Manual
Alternative Driver --> AutoInstaller
SPFlashTool --> SPFlashTool
SPFlashTool --> LatestVersion 



"Extract the files to your desired folder" See picture below"
"If you encounter error in flashtool, use different version of it."

Installing Driver

First try the Alternative Driver, which is the AutoInstaller. Just open the install.bat then it will automatically install the driver. Then proceed to flashing. If it did not work then proceed with VCOM driver that you had downloaded. Then install it manually follow the guide below.

Video Reference using Driver Auto Installer (watch in HD)



When installing it manually your phone must be turned off, then connect it to your computer/laptop while pressing VOLUME UP or VOLUME DOWN. This will detect and look for the driver.


 1. This is the first time that you will connect your phone and it will search for the correct driver.

2. Check include this location ... ... and click on browse. Look for USB VCOM Driver and Click on 2K_XP_COM folder if you are using Windows XP or Win7 for Windows 7 and then press OK when you are done picking the right folder for the driver.


3. If the driver is successfully installed MediaTek DA USB VCOM will appear in the New Hardware Wizard.

"Your Phone must be turned off when you are ready to connect and flash your phone"

Flashing
1. Launch FlashTool
2. Click on Scatter-Loading, and load your scatter file. (see example below with loaded file in Flash Tool



Video Reference Using FlashTool version 5.xxx (watch in HD)


3. Click in Format (a new menu will popup) Make sure that you select Format whole flash except bootloader then press OK. Press and HOLD VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN and insert the USB cable. It will format your tablet.
4. Press Download in Flash Tool
5. After you press Download, Press and HOLD VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN and insert the USB cable.
6. Wait patiently until the progress bar reaches 100%
7. After done flashing, press the reset button in your tablet if the tablet did not automatically power on.
8. Make sure that your tablet is turn off.
9. Press and HOLD VOLUME DOWN and POWER Button. Just wait for it until the tablet power up and enter in Factory Mode.
10. In factory mode select the word with eMMC. Your tablet will automatically reboot.
11. Your tablet will have an invalid IMEI. To fix it just follow my worksarounds for INVALID IMEI below.

Some workarounds:
If you encounter PMT_Changed error here is what you do:
In Older Version of FlashTool
  1. Load the scatter file
  2. Click in Format (a new menu will popup)
  3. Make sure that you select Format whole flash except bootloader then press OK
  4. Connect your phone in bootmode (Turn off your device then hold Volume UP or VOLUME DOWN then insert USB)
  5. It should detect your phone and continue to flash.
  6. Then Click Download to fully flash your phone.
  7. Hard Reset your phone after flashing.
In Latest version of Flashtool
  1. Load the scatter file
  2. Choose Format + Download (Underneath Scatter-loading file)
  3. Then Click Download and wait until it is done flashing
For Invalid IMEI:Your Phone/Tablet must be rooted first
Restore yong IMEI in MTKDroidTools version 2.5.3. You will have this error when you format your phone in Flashtool as I had experienced. To restore download MTKDroidTools version 2.5.3 After you extract the file. Open the green robot, you must enable the usb debugging in your phone. It is usually located in Settings>Devoloper Mode then look for usb debugging. After enabling it. Connect your phone in your computer then in MTKDroidTool click on ROOT. Wait for it to finish, then Click in IMEI/NVRAM, input 15 number in each box. Then click REPLACE. Then click Reboot or you can manually turn off your phone. Then turn your phone on again. You can see that you have fully restored your IMEI.


I hope this tutorial help you. Please drop a comment if something is not clear to you.
