    Once the drivers are properly installed and the SP Flash Tool is already extracted and accessible, turn off your myPhone A818 and remove its battery.

    Run SP Flash Tool.

    Click the Scatter-loading button and navigate to the downloaded MT6573_Android_scatter.txt file.

    Be sure that the RECOVERY is the only one selected, click on it and browse on the downloaded recoveryNonTouch.img file.

    Click the Download button and just ignore the warnings.

    Attach the battery again and connect the phone, be sure not to turn it on yet.

    Wait for the process to complete. You will see a Green Circle with a label saying download okay. Normally, this process doesnt takes too much time and not more than 5 minutes as you were just writing a small-size recovery.img file.

    How to enter into CWM recovery

    Be sure that your phone is turned off.

    Press Volume up + Volume down and power button until a set of choices appears then just press the up button to enter recovery.

    With the CWM recovery, you can easily make a full back-up of your phone. This is as well called as Nandroid back-up. Just be sure you have enough storage on your SD card. Just select Select backup and restore, then choose back up and wait for it to finish.

    How to root myPhone A818

    Copy the RootA818.zip file on your SD card.
    Enter CWM recovery.
    Select install zip from sdcard, choose zip from sdcard, then locate RootA818.zip.
    Select Reboot system now.
    To know verify if the rooting process is a success, look for the SuperUser app in your drawer, or just check root access with the Root Checker app from the PlayStore.
