Need stock firmware for Lenovo Tab2 A7-20F [English]

2016-05-29, 2:51 AM

Does anyone has a copy or a link where i can get a copy of the stock firmware for Lenovo Tab2 A7-20F.

I wanna try Update via SDCARD.

 

My unit was infected by certain virus. Where i do hard reset in recovery mode, the virus still stays there.

And once it's connected to web, it runs/install some apps by itself. Annoying.

 

Anybody experience this?

Thanks Hunkman,

I did visited the site before, but it was a Russian site.

Before you can download the firmware, it requires you to login to the site.

 

Can't register an account since i can't read it. =)

I think you could translate the page to English so that you could create an account and download if you need.

Thanks for the info Hunkman, I was able to login to the site thru my Google+ Account.

And successfully got a copy of the ROM.

 

Now, where do i start from here...

This is not a single file where i can simply select and flash under recovery mode.

 

Need some time to learn how to flash it. =)

It's a firmware archive for the MediaTek SmartPhone Flash Tool (SPFT for short). That's a PC program for Windows and Linux. You can use it to flash firmwares and even make backups of your current firmware. It's absolutely worth learning how to use it, because it works for all Android devices that run on a MediaTek chip, not just this tablet.

 

Operation of the SPFT requires a so-called "scatter file", which is a text file containing information about chip type and all storage partitions on your device. A scatter file is normally included with SPFT firmware archives.

The SPFT also needs a special USB driver to communicate with the device.

 

You can download the SPFT here (current version is 5.1620), and the driver here.

And here's a very brief usage guide. You should be able to find more detailed ones on the web, if necessary.

Not a zip. But a flash file.
