Step 1

In this step, you need to first have the D Light M100 Firmware file. This file is a premium file and you will need to buy it for just 5$ or 500 Kenyan shillings. To get the file, kindly use this link to download the D Light M100 firmware file. After you have downloaded the file, extract the zip file on the phone. You will get the D light M100 scatter firmware file and the D Light m100 DA file.

Step 2

Download the SP Flash tool on your computer. Extract it on your computer. This is the tool that you will use. After that, open the SP Flash tool. Load the D Light M100 DA on the SP Flash tool under the DA section. Load the Scatter text from the D Light M100 firmware folder. (I am assuming you have the knowledge on how to use the SP Flash tool). After loading the files, go to step 3.

Step 3

In step 3, now you need to be keen and do the following. Uncheck all the partitions and only remain with “Secro”. After that, click on the download button. Remove the battery from the phone, place it back and connect your phone to the PC and flash the secro partition. Please make sure you start by flashing the secro partition first.

Step 4

Now, on the SP Flash tool dashboard, go to “Format” under format, select the auto-format Flash and choose “Format whole flash except boot loader” Now, again, just like in step 3 above, connect your phone and format it with this option.

After the phone is formatted, you will realize that it can’t power up. Don’t panic. Move to step 5

Step 5

Now, in this step select the system partition and flash it just like you did in step 3. If you keep getting an error on the SP Flash tool, select both system and secro partitions and flash both of them only. After you have successfully flashed them, now, flash all the other remaining partitions. Wait until all the partitions are flashed.

Disconnect the phone from the computer and power it up.

Step 6

After you have powered on your phone and gone through the setup procedure, check the IMEI number by dialing *06#. You will realize that the IMEI numbers are missing. You need now to write new IMEI numbers different from the ones initially on the phone. (Changing IMEI Numbers is illegal in most countries. Beware you might find yourself on the wrong side of law enforcement.) I am not going to go through the process of repairing IMEI on D Light M 100; you can read my article on how to repair IMEI on D Light M100 smartphones. After repairing IMEI, now make sure that you have not inserted any SIM card in the phone until this point. Now go to settings, then apps, and then uninstall the Pay Joy app. Also, go to system apps and disable all the apps that are affiliated to pay joy. Now, power off your phone, insert your SIM card, and… Enjoy your D Light M 100 without pay Joy.


This procedure is to help you fix software issues on your phone and also use your phone without pay joy only if you have finished paying for your phone.
