I've got a 1004IM that was flashed to 55b2 1008 firmware with MTKFLASH in DOS (successfully), then flashed to 56 1008 firmware via the "official" BTC updater (which appeared successful).
However, the drive stopped working after that, and attempts to use MTKFLASH to flash back to any prior version (for 1004 or 1008, beta or final, bin or hex) have all failed because it now incorrectly thinks the flash type is SST serial (and hangs at 00%).
Is there any way to manually override MTKFLASH's determination of the flash/chip type and force a successful flash if the correct ManuID, ManuID1, bDevId, and flash type are known? Is this a problem of EEPROM corruption?
Any help appreciated.
