Having made sure that the problem you are encountering is not a hardware issue, now you need to follow these steps keenly to solve this problem. The first step is to first Download the Tecno S1S firmware file. Now here, you need to make sure you are Downloading the exact model and built number. In this case, this phone is Tecno S1S and the built number is S1S-H8016D-M-KESF-170606V50. In my case, I used NCK tool to dumb the firmware from a similar phone. If you dont have a similar phone to read from, you can Download the Tecno S1S firmware scatter firmware from this Direct link.
But you can download the firmware from link provided. Extract the file you have downloaded from a file path you can easily find.
Now, after you have downloaded the file in step 1 above, you now need a tool to flash or write the file to your phone. In this case, if the file you downloaded is a scatter file to be flashed with SP Flash tool, download SP Flash tool latest version. Alternatively, you can use Miracle box tool. In my case, I used Miracle 2.82. If you have a higher version or slightly lower, it should just work fine. For the purposes of this article, I will show a pictorial demonstration using miracle box. Open miracle box tool.
Having launched Miracle box, on the miracle interface, click on the “Write” button. Now, down you will see a folder on the interface. Click on the folder to navigate to the directory you saved your Tecno S1S firmware you downloaded.
From the folder containing your firmware file, only select the scatter text file then click on “Open” button. You will see the firmware information of the phone displayed on the interface on the right side.
Remember after loading the firmware to the Miracle box flash tool, select the “Format All (Android)” button. This option will remove your EMEI information after flashing. You can write IMEI back after flashing. IF you dont have Miracle Thunder 2.82, Dont worry. You can use SP Flash tool. Load the scater firmware on SP Flash tool, go to “Format” tab, then select “Format all except bootloader” Connect the phone to the computer. SP Flash tool will formart your phone. Then proceed to download the firmware partitions to your phone.
After the above procedure, the remaining procedure now involves writing your system partitions on your Tecno S1S. Click on the “Start Button.” Switch off the phone or remove the battery and place it back. Connect your phone to the computer using USB data cable. Don’t hold any key. After connecting, miracle will display the partitions that are contained in the firmware file. Here you can choose which partition to write, that is if you are so specific in writing a certain partition. But in this case, we are writing all the partitions. So, just select OK… Miracle will start writing the files on your phone. Be patient and wait until it is done at 100%.
After writing is complete, disconnect your phone from the computer, power it up. The first boot might take long. Wait until boot is done. Restart your device and skip the initial set up settings. At this point, your touch panel should now be responding to touch as usual.
Make sure to follow the due steps as shown in the article. Make sure that after loading your firmware file, select the “Format All (Android)” option. If you don’t format and just directly write the files, you will still remain with the same problem. After flashing, make sure you write your EMEI or else your phone will not have service.
