How to flash the Hisense U40 firmware or ROM
The current file is in CM2 format and those who use this service tool should already know how to proceed with file flashing. Once we have a pac file published we should also feture steps on how to flash that below.
Below are steps you can follow the reload or flash a firmware onto the Hisense U40 aka HLTE103E (HLTE103E.33-H5 variant):
- Download the flashtool (SPD_Upgrade_Tool) from here: https://mega.nz/file/LcoThQKZ#Bb_qdaYWwDvd6wfdBLLhbg_YGuY04L6gr18J4IiUjME and extract it
- Download and install the Spreadtrum driver here: https://mega.nz/file/gPYAQIoZ#kyUqAVFnTS9JGeIruvJwbl5NMAIv3Lr4YIRkE6FVxZQ
- Then open up the extracted SPD_Upgrade_Tool or flashtool folder > then double-click the file with a black chip and two green arrows icon
- From the running flashtool UI > click on the gear icon on the far left > browse to and load the Hisense U40 pac firmware file by double clicking on it – it can take up to a minute or two
- Then click the Play like icon (Start Downloading)
- Remove and replace the battery – then connect the Hisense U40 device with volume down held down
- The downloading should start with a blue bar – at which stage you can release the volume down key > different partitioned will be flashed and you get a green ‘Passed’ when all is done
- At which stage click the Stop icon (Square)
- Disconnect and power up the device – remove and replace the battery and then power the Hisense U40 device on as normal
