Hello!! I've been trying to flash the ROM for my Lenovo S820. But the problem is with my USB driver. I followed all the procedure. I could see the MTK65xx Preloader Device for a moment in the device manager and it got disappeared with a disconnect tone. So I immediately right click on that and update the driver. Installation completed successfully and so I rebooted my system. Later what have happen is that after connection of the phone I could see the Mediatek PreLoader USB VCOM Port on the Port options of the device manager and it got disappeared again… Read more »

I get the error response (8038) and asked to choose Firmware Upgrade over Download. After clicking Ok I again clicked on Firmware Upgrade then again I got a response saying “Please make sure all necessary images are being checked to be downloaded for Firmware Upgrade”. So again I clicked on OK and nothing happens. I started all over again without clicking Download and clicking directly on the firmware upgrade, it happens the same. Please help.

Can you see, uncheck images ROM on the flash tool? Check it and browse to target_bin folder and then select from that folder. Then press firmware upgrade button.

Are you talking about "PRELOAD" which is not checked/ticked in the list ? Or it should have to have a button or drop down option like thing in the Flashing tool??
Yes if you are talking about the PRELOAD then yes I could choose it from target_bin folder. But should I need to tick it before clicking to Firmware Upgrade??

Yes, to be able to use firmware upgrade button it need to be all checked. So yes check it and select preloader from the target_bin folder. Then press firmware upgrade button.

I could do the flashing successfully & I saw the green circle but I think I bricked my phone. It ain't starting even if I press the power button for over 30 secs. Please suggest me what should I do. Moreover I could see some changes that after connecting the handset to the system it starts to show like this in the device manager MTK USB Port (COM19)

Error code 4032 is because your device is produce in 2014, look atthis guide for preloader http://bit.ly/1wPlj9V, yes just read the link and look at disclaimer section there is a download link preloader for device produce in 2014, replace the preloader from rom download and then rename the checksum.ini

you must fix your partition first before flashing this ROM, your partition is mess, i don't know what have you done but you already messing your partition so the ROM cannot in into your device because the partition is not fit or maybe your device is not Lenovo S820. this error message mean : The size of a file is larger than the available / possible partition size Solution: * Ensure that the file(s) you're trying to flash are actually for your exact phone model * Try another stock ROM try search on the net how to fix it.
