This is a step by step guide on how to perform RAM test on a Mediatek device. RAM test allows us to properly verify the memory storage, type and RAM on external storage along with other important info.


Requirements

  • Download latest SP flash tool
  • Download and Install Vcom Preloader Driver
  • Windows PC
  • MTK Phone
  • Scatter file and Preloader.bin for your phone [place the two files in the same folder location]


Steps on How to perform RAM test on a Mediatek Android Phone using SP flash tool


Follow the steps below to perform a RAM test on a Mediatek [MTK] android phone

Important Notice
  • DO NOT attempt to do a "DRAM flip test" in place of "RAM test". DRAM flip test is a different test and it takes a pretty long time to complete and could damage your phone's emmc chip especially if its already very weak
  • If you're trying to obtain full length address and you don't see RAM test after selecting your scatter file, then use this method to obtain full length address

ram test has nothing to do with spft version, instead it depends on the scatter file you select [some chipset don't support it]
i'm not sure how you got to this page but if you got here through the guide at https://www.hovatek.com/forum/thread-21970.html then step 17 indicated an alt method to try if you dont see "RAM TEST"

Thanks for pointing out my mistake...I overlooked the link in error. 
But my Chipset is 6750T do I have to create (add) my chipset manually in the WWR or I can go with MT6750 which was what I used before 


As for the RAM. test, I will try out the EMMC_USER instead of BOOT 1 as you have guided me to do (or is there any step I have omitted in the post?) 

I viewed all the links one after the other properly and read them (it wasn't easy) 
I await your reply sir

You can use MT6750
The goal of the RAM test is to get the length value of the full rom
For those that use DRAM flip test like yours, you get the length of the rom using https://www.hovatek.com/forum/thread-22701.html

your phone is most likely stuck in flash mode, either disconnect / reconnect the battery or leave the device to charge. refer to https://www.hovatek.com/forum/thread-808.html
