    1. No, u can't update with this update file. It's difference file between ur phone and A369i. And u continue to do this aswell, I sure u have hard-brick. Don't be take aggresive to install directly into ur phone. As ur phone running GB 2.3.6, just take patient and I sure that ur phone will be get ICS first. I just thinking it.

    If you are sure that your device is lenovo a369i then you will need to format the device first with flash tool and after that you can update but it will be better to backup your nvram with mtktools first to recover the imei if they disappear .

    Beware this update is not for your device it is only for a369i and not for a369 they are almost the same but the ram is 256 on a369 and there is no update above 2.3.6 for your device I think

    1. If you have a nandroid backup, restore it.
      If not, then you will need the .apk files of those apps. Download those files, copy them to /system/app/ , change their permissions and reboot.

    4. If it still shows unknown device after installing MT65xx preloader driver, you will have to use meta mode to flash the stock firmware.

    6. Meta mode has a separate driver. You will have to download that driver and install it. I don't remember the exact name of that driver. After you install that driver, start the SP flash tool, load the scatter file and click on the download button. Then remove the battery and plug in the USB cable of your phone while pressing the volume up button. If all goes well, the firmware should start downloading.

    12. You have cleared the NVRAM of your phone. If you have a backup of the original NVRAM, restore it using MTKDroidTools. Otherwise, you'll have to change the IMEI manually using MTKDroidTools.
