This drivers will make the connection to your MTK device possible form a Windows 10 PC on a 32 or 64 bit configuration. The drivers that you will find on this page are unsigned so if you are running Windows 10 64 bit you are required to temporary disable the driver signature verification enforcement in order to be able to install.

To determine the version of Windows 10 that you have (32 bit or 64 bit):

To disable Windows 10 64 bit driver signature enforcement:

  • On your 64 bit Windows 10 desktop click on Start then on Settings
  • Click on Update & security then in the left pane click on Recovery
  • Under Advanced startup click on Restart now button
  • Click on Troubleshoot then on Advanced options
  • Click on Startup Settings then on Restart button
  • The computer will restart with the Startup Settings screen
  • To disable the driver signature enforcement until next restart press on number key 7 or F7 on your keyboard.
  • After restart you can proceed with the unsigned MTK drivers installation for your 64 bit Windows
  • After you install the unsigned drivers, to use them again in the future, you have to repeat this procedure

To install the MTK VCOM USB Drivers on 32 & 64 bit Windows 10:

    • Download the drivers *.zip archive and extract the folder from inside on to the desktop: Windows 10 Device Manager shortcut

  • Right-click on Start then click on Device Manager Windows 10 64 bit Device manager

  • In the Device Manager Window click on the first item – your computer name Windows 10 64 bit Device manager add legacy hardware

  • Click on Action then Add legacy hardware Windows 10 64 bit Welcome to add hardware wizard

  • On the Welcome to the Add hardware Wizard window click on Next button Windows 10 64 bit Install the hardware that I manually select from a list(Advanced)

  • Select Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced) and then click on Next button Windows 10 64 bit Device manager add legacy hardware - show all devices

  • Click on Show All Devices then on Next button Windows 10 64 bit Device manager add legacy hardware - Have disk

  • In the Add Hardware window click on Have Disk… button Windows 10 64 bit Device manager add legacy hardware - Have disk - Browse

  • In the Install From Disk window click on Browse… button
  • In the next window – Locate file – browse for the folder that you have extracted on the desktop at the beginning Windows 10 64 bit Device manager add legacy hardware - Have disk - Browse - Locate file

  • Select the version of the driver according to your Windows 10 version – x64 for 64 bit and x86 for 32 bit and click Open button Windows 10 64 bit Device manager add legacy hardware - Have disk - Browse - OK

  • Click the OK button to load the driver Windows 10 64 bit Device manager add legacy hardware - MTK USB Port

  • From the list of drivers select MTK USB Port and click on Next button Windows 10 64 bit Windows cant verify the publisher of this driver software

  • If a red warning window will open, click on Install this driver software anyway

This action will add the following drivers in to the operating system:

  • MediaTek DA USB VCOM Port
  • MediaTek PreLoader USB VCOM Portfor transferring the firmware to your device
  • MTK USB Modem Port
  • MTK USB portfor transfering PreLoader to your device (and recovery in case of bad or corrupt firmware)

Now we need to remove the device that we have installed but leave the drivers in the operating system.
To do that, in the Device Manager window we expand Ports (COM & LPT) section Windows 10 64 bit Device manager add legacy hardware - MTK USB Port - Uninstall

  • Right-click and click Uninstall on the MTK USB Port Windows 10 64 bit Device manager add legacy hardware - MTK USB Port - Uninstall - OK

  • In the Confirm Device Uninstall window make sure that the box Delete the driver software for this device is empty
  • You need to leave the drivers in the operating system and only remove the device that you added
  • Click on the OK button to finalise

Now, when you will connect your dead (or turned off) MTK device to the Windows 10 computer by USB, the device will be recognized either trough a MediaTek Preloader USB VCOM Port interface or as a MTK USB port if it is bricked or it has bad/corrupt firmware. The SP Flash Tool will be able to transfer the firmware to your device trough this interfaces. Make sure you connect the device after you press the Download button in SP Flash Tool, as the communication interface will only be alive for 2 seconds if no data is being sent.

Download SP Flash Tool v3 & v5 – Latest versions

If you have trouble installing a new MTK driver in your system or you see a high or unusual number beside COM Ports displayed in the Device Manager, you might want to clean the USB driver garbage in your system with USBDeviewDownload USBDeview download for 32 & 64 bit Windows – learn what it does and how to get rid of unwanted USB drivers and COM Port duplicates.

      Tested on Windows 7 and works. Error 10 doesn’t matter.
      It is important to open the Format tab in the Flash tool, click Start in the right corner, and then connect the disabled tablet.When Format is complete, disconnect the tablet from the PC. Return to the download tab, click download, and then reconnect the turned off tablet to your PC. The flash runs and it’s done

      Press the volume down or up button and connect your device. That’s connect the USB cable to your computer, press volume down continuous while connecting the USB cable to your device. If volume down don’t work for you try volume up and do the same thing.

    I have tried for hours to fix my Lenovo Tab 2 A10, this is the only article that really helped. For some reason the latest version of the SP Flash Tool wasn’t working and I have performed the update using v5 1628. The firmware I have installed was A10-70F_S000121_151222_ROW. After installing I had to perform an upgrade online. I believe this is a Lituanian version of the firmware and, as I read on the web, it’s way less bloated than the original Chinese one that was originally installed on my tablet.

      Connect your bricked device to a USB charge outlet adapter for a couple of hours and try again after that. In some cases the device could actually recharge even if the screen will remain blank or show something else than the regular battery charging animation or the screen remains off.

    • says:

      This is normal. You need to press Download button on SP Flash Tool BEFORE you connect your device. SP Flash Tool will start delivering the files after one second. If you did not press Download there is nothing to deliver. In this case after 3 seconds the phone will get bored waiting and it will disconnect then try to boot as usual.

    why my computer when i chose MTK USB port doesn’t install all the three driver but just MTK USB port (COM7)?

    • says:

      Normally all the drivers will be installed if you select either of them from the list at install, as the import in the operating system is being made at *.inf file level, so the files you download from above on this page contain all those drivers as a pack anyways. Just follow the tutorial and you will have all those device drivers in your system. They will activate automatically if proper device is being detected/in use.

    • says:

      Hi! If you were to let the device you install installed it wold be just a useless device in your Device Manager. What you actually need is the device drivers to be present in your system so that when you connect the real device to your computer it will use those drivers. That is why I said to let the box unchecked so the fake device is removed but the drivers are being left in the system, ready to kick in when you connect your device to your computer in download mode.
