Flashing is the process of reverting your Gionee android device to its factory defaults by means of flashing STOCK Gionee firmware on it. Or, by means of flashing Custom ROM/Firmware on it.
Flashing is done to correct any software malfunctions experienced on any Gionee android devices. Even those that seem persistence after performing a Factory-Reset would be corrected by flashing the Gionee android device.

In this section of this tutorial, I discuss how to flash Gionee android devices using the Stock Firmware and, I assume that you have no knowledge of Gionee android devices hence; I take this tutorial from scratch to finish.
Now, let's proceed.

1: DEFINITIONS OF TERMS USED
OS VERSION: this refers to the version of the firmware for which you have and that that you are going to use to flash the Gionee android device.

MODEL VARIANTS: usually, there are different variant(s) of some Gionee android devices as in the case of Gionee M2 and M2s, Gionee V4 and V4s, Gionee P4 and P4s et cetera.

HOW CAN YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENT VARIANTS OF GIONEE ANDROID DEVICE?
It's simple. By simply checking the label behind the battery seat on the phone or by navigating to Settings >> About >>. You can see detailed information about the phone right there.

FIRMWARE: Gionee firmware contains all the files, programs including images, GUI and the entire files necessary to run android OS on your Gionee device. The firmware is being used to flash Gionee android devices.
NOTE: Flashing can upgrade or downgrade your Gionee android device. It all depends on the versions of the firmware you used while flashing the phone.
Example:
If you want to flash a Gionee android device whose OS is Android 4.4.2 Kitkat and you use an android 5.1 Lollipop firmware to flash the phone, the phone would be upgraded to 5.1 Lollipop. The reverse is the case when you flash with a lower version of the same firmware.
WHERE CAN YOU DOWNLOAD Gionee FIRMWARE?
You can download Gionee Firmware directly from here.

HOW TO FLASH GIONEE ANDROID DEVICE USING SP FLASH TOOL

STEP 1: Download the specific firmware for the Gionee android phone from the link above.

STEP 2: Download SP Flash Tool from here and then, download Gionee Android Drivers from here.

STEP 3: Open the SP Flash Tool you downloaded from the link above. It is compressed in a zip file, simply extract it onto a folder on your PC, open the folder to locate the SP Flash Tool application and then; double-click it to lunch the program.
See the image below:

NOTE: Remember to install the Gionee Android Drivers following the normal Windows Drivers installation procedures.

STEP 4: Click Scatter Loading on SP Flash Tool. From there, select Scatter File from within the Stock ROM you have downloaded or prepared to flash on the Gionee android phone.

NOTE: Scatter File, in MTK Android Stock ROM, is a text file that contains the arrangements and MD5 SUM of the partitions contained in MTK android Stock ROM files. The Scatter File helps MTK Android flash tools identify the arrangements of the flash files.

STEP 5: Select Partitions to be Flashed. See the image below;

NOTE: DO NOT select PRELOADER as part of the partitions to be flashed. Never!. Also, DO NOT select others in the RED Circle.

STEP 6: Click "Download"


STEP 7: Connect the phone to the PC using its compatible USB Cable.
To connect the phone to the PC, remove the battery from the phone, plug the USB-end of the cord to the PC and then, the other end to the phone. Now, insert the battery in the phone and then, tap the Power Button once.

FINAL NOTEs:
1- Wait few seconds for SP Flash Tool to detect the phone and commence the flashing operation.

2- While the flashing operation is in progress, at NO point should you stop, abort or disconnect the phone until the operation is completed. Doing so may damage the phone.

3- When the flashing operation is complete, you will see a "Round-Green Circle" on SP Flash Tool. When this happens, simply disconnect the phone from the PC, remove the battery and then, re-insert the battery.
You can then Power-On the phone and enjoy!



SECTION 2: HOW TO MAKE FLASH FILES FOR GIONEE ANDROID DEVICE
What if you have a particular Gionee android device you need to flash and you could not download it flash files nor do you have it. What would you do?
If you have an exact variant of that Gionee android device at hand or that you have someone who has it around you, you can simply extract the flash files from that phone and compile it for MTK android flash tools.

In this section of this tutorial, I discuss how to make or extract flash files from a fully working MTK android device. The extracted file can be used to flashing any other MTK android device of the same kind and variant.

MAKING FLASH FILES FROM WORKING GIONEE MTK ANDROID DEVICE

STEP 1: Root the phone and install Busybox on it.

STEP 2: Flash Custom ClockWorkMOD recovery on the Gionee android device to enjoy an uninterrupted operation.
See the section 3 below for detailed info on how to flash Custom ClockWorkMOD recovery on your Gionee android device.

STEP 3: Download MTK Droid Tools from here, decompress/unzip the file on your PC Desktop. Download PDANet+ from here and install it on your PC.

STEP 4: Open MTK Droid Tools folder and Lunch it by double-clicking the MTK Droid Tools application in the folder.


STEP 5: Now, connect your phone to the PC using its compatible USB Cable. Wait few seconds for MTK Droid Tools to detect the phone and then, click "Root" and follow the on-screen instruction until MTK Droid Tools shows Green-like ink.


STEP 6: Reboot the phone to recovery. Click "Reboot" on MTK Droid Tools and then, choose "Reboot Recovery" from the option that displays.
Wait patiently until the phone reboots to recovery and MTK Droid Tools detects the phone.

STEP 7: Select "Root, Backup, Recovery" tab and then, click "Backup"
Almost immediately, the backup process will begin. Wait until the process completes and disconnect the phone from the PC.

FINAL NOTEs:
1- When the process is about to complete, MTK Droid Tools will display a message prompt that says "Pack Backup...?", simply click "NO"

2- When the process finally completes, click "To Prepare Blocks for Flash Tool". Select the "files.md5" and wait patiently until the operation completes.

Now, you have successfully extracted/prepared flash files from the Gionee android device and can be used to flash any Gionee android device of the same variant.

SECTION 3: HOW TO FLASH Custom ClockWorkMOD RECOVERY ON ANY GIONEE ANDROID DEVICE

CWM Recovery is one of the commonest custom recovery for android devices and probably, the most commonly available custom recovery for android devices especially; MTK android devices among of which Gionee belongs.

In this section of this tutorial, I discuss how to make CWM recovery for Gionee android devices and flash it on the phone using MTK Droid tools.

CREATING/FLASHING CWM RECOVERY ON GIONEE MTK ANDROID DEVICES

STEP 1: Root the phone and install Busybox on it.

STEP 2: Download MTK Droid Tools from the previous link above (if you have not downloaded it), decompress/unzip the file on your PC Desktop. Download PDANet+ from the link above (also, if you have not downloaded it) and install it on your PC.

STEP 3: Open MTK Droid Tools folder and Lunch it by double-clicking the MTK Droid Tools application in the folder.


STEP 4: Now, connect your phone to the PC using its compatible USB Cable. Wait few seconds for MTK Droid Tools to detect the phone and then, click "Root" and follow the on-screen instruction until MTK Droid Tools shows Green-like ink.

NOTE: This is only necessary if you have not connected the phone to MTK Droid Tools in root access before.

STEP 5: Select "Root, Backup, Recovery" tab. From here, click "To use boot from phone" and then, "Recovery and Boot".

NOTE: Click "YES" to the prompts "To Make CWM Recovery Automatically?" and "Install Created Recovery to Phone?"

FINAL NOTEs:
1- When the flashing operation has been completed successfully, you may boot the phone to CWM Recovery straight away using the MTK Droid Tools or by using the recovery (buttons) combinations.

2- Note that CWM Recovery replaces your Gionee Stock Recovery and, in most cases, changes your Recovery Boot key combination to Power + Volume up buttons by deffault.
