As for the Zopo Zp998 octacore, even for the ZP980 + it will not be necessary to download and install new drivers, as those of the previous quad-core chipsets are still valid.

The following images are to be considered "exemplifying" of the operations, as they refer to the flash procedure performed on the Zopo Zp990. For this reason you will notice inconsistencies in file and folder names.

PART ONE: MT6589T Driver Installation (MT6592) for ZOPO ZP990

The first step to perform, as always, is the installation of the MT6589T Drivers on your computer. Obviously skip this step if you have already installed the MT6589T (MT6592) drivers on your PC!

Download the archive with the Universal drivers for MT6589T (MT6592) at (1) and start the "UniversalAdbDriverSetup6" executable:

Installing Mt589T Universal Drivers

NB: the ideal Operating System to run this guide is Windows XP, but it also works on Windows 8 (tested by myself). I recommend you to run the various files always clicking with the right mouse button and choosing "run as administrator".

An alternative way to install the MT6589T (MT6592) drivers on your PC is via the SnapPea software, downloadable here.

If the procedure for installing the universal MT6589T drivers was successful (see image above), you can proceed with the next step!

PART TWO: Recovery installation for Zopo ZP980 + with Flash Tool

Once the drivers are installed, you just have to flash the recovery with the Flash Tool. Let's see how to do it!

For the flash you can follow the guidelines shown in this video showing how to flash the new firmware with Flash Tool on ZOPO ZP990 C7:

First, unpack the Flash_tool archive (2 point) and the recovery archive (3 point) onto a folder (for example, on the desktop).

Go to the "SP_Flash_Tool_XXXXXX" folder and right-click on the "Flash_tool" executable and, if you are using Windows 8, select "run as administrator":


At this point Flash_tool will open:


Load the scatter by clicking on "scatter-loading”And then select the“ MT6592_Android_scatter ”file present in the recovery folder, previously downloaded and unpacked on the desktop.

Flash_tool_ZopoZP990After selecting the "scatter" we will display a screen similar to this one, but with "flaggata" the only entry "RECOVERY":

Flash_tool_ZopoZP990It is important to underline that the operations described so far are all to be performed with telephone NOT connected to the PC.

At this point it is necessary to click on Download (the option between Firmware -> Upgrade STOP) to start the actual recovery "flash" operation.

Once you click on the Download button, connect the ZP980 + without battery to the computer. If you have performed the above steps correctly, you will see progress bars at the bottom of the Flash Tool window. Do not disconnect the phone from the PC during this operation and wait for it to end, ie until a window with a green circle appears (see photo).


Compliments! You have just installed the 6030 CWM recovery on your Zopo ZP980 +.

Flashata the recovery insert the battery and with the combination "volume up" + "power" with power cable inserted, go into recovery from where it will be possible to flash the previously copied rom on the sd or phone memory.

Once entered into recovery, perform the "wipe cache partition" and the "wipe data / factory reset" come on "Advanced"The"Wipe Dalvik Cache"(The menu items can be scrolled with the + and - keys and the selection is made using the power key);

Install the ROM by clicking "install Zip from SD card / choose zip from internal SD card"And choosing the file previously downloaded and copied to the phone's memory. After completing the installation operation select "Reboot System";

The only bug currently detected on the ROM is that the camera gets to a maximum of 12 mega-pixels.
