Warning! To conserve the communication interface that the MTK device is using to accept data from the computer trough the “MediaTek PreLoader” driver please uncheck the “PRELOADER” component during firmware flashing. You are now protected from a hard software brick. The PRELOADER firmware component only contains the drivers used by the MTK device to negociate the connection with a PC and transmit back confirmation data, at the other end of the USB data cable. The operating system for the MTK device is in the other firmware components anyways.

Flashing the wrong PRELOADER could be very problematic afterwards. You may be able to flash the hard software bricked MTK device again only after making a full firmware backup from another working MTK device (the same model). You may backup the firmware of the MTK device before flashing to have a copy of the original PRELOADER as it is very hardware-specific and a big problem for cloned devices with MTK SoCs out there.
