After you have successfully downloaded your firmware on your PC, now unzip to a folder on your computer. If your firmware requires a password to extract, find the password on the site where you downloaded it. If the password isn’t on the website, then contact the website through the contacts given on the website. In most cases, people will not give these passwords because they want you to purchase.

Step 3

At this point, you are on the right track. Now, it is time to get the downloading tool. In some cases, you will find the flash tool zipped within the firmware. If it is included, extract (if it comes as a zip file), open the folder you have extracted and run. Upgrade Download.exe file. If the flashing tool isn’t included in the firmware, don’t panic. Simply search and download the UpgradeDownload tool. Extract and run as I have directed above.

Click on “Open” you will see a progress bar at the bottom of the Upgrade Download tool showing your firmware being loaded to your SPD flash tool. Now, wait until the firmware loads fully.

Now, remove the battery from the phone, put it back again. Click on the play sign on the Upgrade Download tool, then, connect your SPD smartphone to your computer. Having properly installed SPD drivers, your phone will be detected and flashing will automatically be initiated. You will see the progress in the progress bar.

Be patient for the first boot always takes a long time.


Kindly make sure that before you decide to flash new firmware or upgrade, you really have a good reason to do this. This method will work only if you have the correct firmware and the proper tools. If you are not sure which chipset your phone is using, Google your phone’s specifications.
