How to Format kgtel K2090 Feature phone.

Hello readers. Today I am going to teach you how to format Kgtel K2090 feature phone using a computer. Feature phones are unique in their own ways. Unlike smartphones, when you set phone lock password and forget it, you cannot reset it with a Google account like in some other cases. Another thing that makes it even harder on feature phones is that they don’t have recovery menus like in smartphones’ case whereby you can press a combination of volume keys and power or home buttons to get to the recovery menu.

I am going to show you how to format kgtel K2090 feature phone. As I have mentioned earlier on, feature phones don’t have recovery menus where you can format from recovery like smartphones. Because of this, it is impossible to hard reset feature phones. There are certain ways you can use a combination of codes to factory reset these feature phones but this is through USSD which means you must have access to the feature phone first to get to SSD. But in cases whereby the phone is protected or locked with a phone lock, you can’t access the phone’s SSD to key in those particular codes. In such cases, the only remaining way is to use software that can format the feature phone to remove the phone lock or just flash a new firmware which still, will require you to use a computer, a flashing tool and the firmware to that particular feature phone.

Kgtel K2090 is a feature phone that is simple to use and has got features suitable for basic mobile phone use. Kgtel K2090 features 16Mbs of internal storage, 2MP camera and it supports dual SIM cards. The reason as to why I chose this particular phone is that the moment you get locked out because of a phone lock, it is hard to unlock it. As I said earlier, there is no way you can hard reset feature phones. Secondly, look over the internet. Its firmware is not available on any website but I will be sharing it soon. Follow the steps below on how to format kgtel K2090 feature phone.

How To Format Kgtel K2090 Feature Phone Using Miracle Box.

Now, this method is the most effective, simple and easier way of formatting kgtel K2090 feature phone in case you have forgotten your unlock code. Miracle box supports a lot of features and supports many Chinese phones. Both feature phones and smartphones too.

Step 1

Hoping that you have miracle box on your Windows PC, run Miracle Box loader as administrator. If you don’t have Miracle Box, search online and download one if you can. Make sure to disable your antivirus because it finds Miracle Box as a malware. But there is no need to panic.

Step 2

After having done everything in step 1 as instructed, now on the Miracle Box loader dashboard, click on “Coolsand/RDA” button as shown in the screenshot below. Kgtel K2090 feature phone operates on the coolsand chipset. At this point, you need to have installed these drivers already for miracle box coolsand CPUs.

Step 4

This is the final step. In this step, you will now have to connect your kgtel 2090 feature phone to your computer through USB data cable. Now, press the key just above the call button and connect your phone to the USB data cable. Now as soon as it shows the charging battery, long press the zero (0) button and your phone will go into download mode. Miracle box will detect your phone and start formatting it automatically that is if you did not choose to backup data. If you selected “YES” button for backup, you will see a popup up come up prompting you to select a backup folder where you want to back up your data. After you have selected the backup folder, formatting will start immediately. Hold those keys until it is done.

Disconnect your kgtel K2090 phone from the USB cable, remove the battery, replace it back and power your phone ON. It will power up and boot up without a phone lock.


The following are important things you need to put into consideration:

  1. It is entirely up to you to find and download a working version of miracle box loader.
  2. Make sure you have installed miracle drivers before you carry out this exercise. Without the drivers, miracle box will not be able to detect your phone.
  3. Correctly follow the instructions given above particularly the sequence of holding the buttons. If not done correctly, your kgtel K2090 will only indicate charging and will not go into download mode and miracle box will not detect it therefore, it will not do the format.
  4. Follow the above steps correctly. If you don’t, your phone might get bricked and we as will not be liable for anything that might happen as a result of not following instructions.
