  • Simply, more tweaks and mods
Here are all the things you need:

Note: After downloading all necessary files, extract Xolo Q700s firmware and Xolo Usrdata and Cache in ONE folder only anywhere in your computer (let's name the folder Xolo Q700s Firmware). Also extract SP Flash Tool anywhere you want, then install Drivers Auto Installer (run install.bat and just wait for it to finish installing the drivers).

1. Open SP Flash Tools and run Flash_tool.exe

sp flash tool

2. Click Scatter-loading, a new window will appear looking for the scatter file, go to the Xolo Q700s Firmware folder and select MT6582_Android_scatter_emmc.txt and click Open.

3. The Xolo firmware is now loaded therefore all partitions in the list are checked automatically, if not are all checked automatically, you have not placed the Xolo Q700s and Usrdata and Cache in the same folder so put them in one and load the scatter file again.

4. Switch OFF or turn OFF your phone. When it is already off, plug-in the USB cable to your computer but NOT in your Flare S2.

5. Click on Firmware > Upgrade

6. Plug-in the USB cable to your Flare S2 and after few seconds, SP Flash Tool will detect your phone and it will start the upgrade.

7. Wait. If you see this image below appeared, the tool has finished the upgrade.

8. Disconnect or unplug USB cable from your phone to your computer.

9. Reboot your phone to recovery mode (Press and hold Volume up + Power button at the same time and wait until you need to choose recovery, press Volume down)

10. Do all wipe. Wipe cache partition, Wipe data/factory reset, go to advance and Wipe dalvic cache

11.Now go back and reboot system. Done!

Congratulations! You now have successfully upgrade your Cherry Mobile Flare S2 to Xolo Q700s!

  5. please help regarding this ""ERROR: Initializing scatter file FAILED. please check the name of scatter file which you load is legal. please please

  6. Phone is not detected while turned off, are you sure this instruction is correct ?

  7. plugging and unplugging the USB Cable did not work for me, instead i plugged in the usb to my phone (turned off) then removed the battery, then inserted the battery again, and it started upgrading..

  8. Usrdata is not detected by flash_tool when loaded from MT6582_Android_Scatter.txt. I'm pretty sure it's in the same folder where i put the file name cache.img

  9. found it out. edited the scatter file under PARTITION_NAME: USRDATA. file_name: was data.img not usrdata.img

  10. Phone isn't getting detected while turned off. Tried the method listed above (remove/re-insert battery after plugging in phone while turned off) still no go. Is it possible for this to be started while phone is on?

  11. Sir pahelp naman bumaba kasi ung internal memory ko dating 4gb naging100 mb nalng ;(

  12. my only problem is the USRDATA its uncheck I put all the files at in 1 folder including the firmware as what the instruction said

  13. USRDATA cannot seem to be checked even after I put the files in 1 folder...

  14. Why is the stock camera app's indicated max resolution for the rear camera is only 6mpx instead of 8mpx and the front cam became 4mpx instead of the stock 2mpx?!

  15. bkt ayaw m check ng usrdata,,magkakasama nmn n lahat ng files,ilang beses ko sinubukan ayaw tlga m check

  16. thanks bro ^_^ i already install this ^_^

  17. baliktad yung cache.img mo at usrdata.img...hahaha
