have a read of this, sounds like the same problem on win 8

post #4 might be your answer

"Have you disabled digital driver signature? For flashtool you need MTK6589 USB VCOM drivers!

Open device manager, open flashtool, plug in your phone and install driver manually with open flashtool!

First you have MT65xx Preloader in device manager for two seconds when you plug, double click and install driver manually.

Then you should have MediaTek PreLoader USB VCOM Port! Now it should be installed correctly."

here are the VCOM drivers from the site

http://www.solidfile...m/d/9662ae99a8/

As an old crinkly im rapidly losing what hair i have left.....

Try with SD card in but battery out. Also turn off your Anti Virus.. that might be stopping it from working. And don't worry it will install :) , but it can be a bit tricky the first time you do something like this.

That guide is for a windows 8 PC isn't it?

If you're using a Windows 7 then, with your phone turned on, just plug your phone into your Win7 PC and if you can see and access your phone through your computer then you should have all the drivers you need.

If you can access your phone, then remove it from your Win 7 pc, then turn your phone off and follow the full tutorial to install CWM.

that is the problem, in win7 or 8 with phone switched on they both see the phone, as soon as I remove battery and go through the procedure the pre-loader comes up in device manager looking for a driver that it cannot find......

not sure if im confused can put stuff on and off sd card with phone plugged in, is that the same as seeing the phone?

yeah, if your on windows 7 i would suggest using the tool to remove the drivers then reboot the pc, then starting the guide again, ignore the N/A thing i get that to,

it changes to this after you add the scatter file (look before you add it and you will see).

if you still have no luck try this guide to install the VCOM drivers manually (reboot and try again)

the guide says MTK6577 but the drivers are actually all the same and is the installation on the PC.

try rebooting the PC and try again, i'm sure that's the error i got when flashing cwm, after a reboot it worked

also, you should do the first guide, if not already (just to make sure it gets proper drivers installed)

Great news bryfly :) .

I doubt a different CWM can be installed because the recovery partition is only 6mb so Tillaz had to reduce the size of CMW as much as he could. The only other option would be to increase the size of the partitions but that would be a headache for very little gain because you don't use recovery all that much.

i did build TWRP which is much better but its 6.30mb and the recovery partition on the v5 (and most MTK6589)

is only 6mb, so i ended up having to port cwm :(

there is a guide on how to increase the partition size to 7mb

Here is TWRP image i built for the v5 (full touch recovery) http://www.solidfile...m/d/23b64d68cb/

you would just replace it with the one in the flash tool

but to use it you need to increase the partition size, i found this guide on how to do it but not tried it

"Use this tut here to permanently increase recovery partition to 7Mb for latest MT6589 when SPFT report error too large & causes region overlap..."

When I plug my phone it at the read back stage nothing happens.

In the 'read flag' column it says n/a not PageSpare as in the screenshots. Also when entering the hex's, I don't have the middle ReadFlag options.

What am I doing wrong?

This could be a stupid question but what does the CWM you've compiled for the V5 look like?

I've completed the flashing CWM steps with 100% on both but when I booted in recovery it said Android system recovery (3e). :/

Edit: My bad! I had it pointing at my stock recovery.img. Successfully flashed CWM now. :)

It was a pain to get this to work. Had every problem Bryfly had, but thanks to all the tutorials and suggestions by tillaz and others I was able to get it working. Thanks!
