For mtkflash 1.69 and 1.80, the command line to use with a binary firmware file is:
mtkflash X w /b /m <filename.bin> or
mtkflash X w /c /b /m <filename.bin>
if the one above won't work. "X" is, of course, denoting the IDE port your drive is connected to - 1 for Primary master, 2 for Primary slave, 3 for Secondary master and 4 for Secondary slave.
For mtkflash 1.80.1, the command line to use with a binary firmware file is:
mtkflash X w /m <filename.bin> or
mtkflash X w /c /m <filename.bin>
You don't need to set the /b switch with this mtkflash version as, other than the older versions, it defaults to binary. (The older ones default to hex.) In fact, it has been reported that setting /b even though it's not required may make for an unpleasant surprise.
Refer to the MTKFLASH help page; you can invoke it by calling up MTKFLASH without any commands or parameters.
And oh, BTW, you could search this forum for MTKFLASH; I'm sure this will bring up a lot of posts.
Good luck, and let's know how things turn out on your side.
