    My phone won't turn on. Just black screen. After trying to flash above recovery.
    I got message Downloading recovery failed, and some log file came.
    When I connect phone to pc, it connects but SP tool won't seeing it now. I think because phone is still in on state. Is there any way I can turn this phone off? by pressing two keys simultaneously or something?

      thanks for ur response, but installing SU that way throws an error, "no SU binary installed, and SU cant install it." Also root checker app says that the phone is not rooted.

    The scatter file you used was mt6592 but gold has mt6692t chipset. Also have you really tested it?? On what android version?

      Never mind, I knew the problem was with the scatter file. I made a new scatter file from MTK tools and using that, flashed the recovery. Thanks for the recovery.img

      Hi All,

      I am novice and wanted to let you know that I have rooted the phone using KingRoot which I felt was easy to use. My Friend Akash Bajaj suggested it.

      Now trying to create partition preferably (SWAP partition) as you know A300 comes with 32GB RAM and it shows (total) Phone Internal storage of 1.48GB (I have 286MB available) and Phone storage (built in Memory) of 25.39GB (I have 23.84GB available) but I keep facing the error of low memory.

      I need help in creating the SWAP partition. I tried using the free version of RAMEXPANDER and ROM Toolkit Pro. I also tried MemoryInfo-Swap but now of them work.

      Can someone guide me please, without the memory issue fix this phone is junk but I am sure if one has expanded the memory it will be one of the best phone in market.
