    Hi. Followed your instructions and everything seemed to work. However, when I click on the newly installed driver to check it is working, I get the following error “This device cannot start. (Code 10)” in the properties box. Any idea why?

      Same error with MTK6582 Huawei Honor 3C and Windows 8.1 64 bit.

      Please help.

      Solved! Just ignore that message and connect your phone switched off (with battery inserted) to usb port. Now you can use SP FlashTool. Tested with my Huawei Honor 3C (MTK 6582).

  • chris

    this didnt work, everytime i go to download the drivers it takes me to some spam ad

  • wei chen

    for people who failed to install or get it working
    1. if newer then win xp/vista/7 then click on the win8/8.1 link above.
    2. if 64bit win xp/vista/7 then usb2ser_Win764.inf from correspond system folder. i.e if win7 then goto win 7 folder and get usb2ser.inf or usb2ser_Win764.inf if 64bit
    3. if invalid download again
    4. if different mtk processor number use this anyways, works for most modern mtk chipset, i highly doubt it can harm your device.
