As common as MTK androids have become, one of the major challenges being faced by engineers and individuals using the MTK androids is the lack of supports whenever there is any software related problems with the phone.

And as far as the MTK androids are concerned, there is only one certain solution to any software related problems any MTK android might have and that is... flashing MTK STOCK ROM.

YES. I know you will say "how?". Your answers are given here.

How to Backup MTK Android Stock ROM

Backing up any MTK android stock ROM would not have been possible if not with the help of the MTK Droid Tools.

MTK Droid Tools is a Windows program released by one of the XDA developers recently. The MTK Droid Tools has proven so useful recently.
As a matter of fact, I have used the MTK Droid Tools to backup several stock ROMs of MTK android devices and used the backups to revive some dead MTK android devices which include Tecno Q1, Tecno M7, F7, some infinix and iTel phones.

Download the MTK Droid Tools here.
