Are you looking for the flash file for the Mint Connect Orion firmware together with steps on how you can flash it? If yes, then continue reading as I purpose to share both where you can source the file together with a breakdown on how you can flash it.

  • Note. If you are just looking to reset a triggered FRP or Google account verification for which credentials of the last synced account are lost, then file the tool pack here: http://www.saroms.co.za/product/mint-orion-frp-or-google-account-verification-reset/
  • And if you just need to wipe userdata on a Mint Orion that will not boot into recevery, then use the reset pack bundled with the ROM on the listing linked to below

The Mint Connect Orion or Mint Orion is MediaTek based so you will need to use the SP Flash Tool for to flash. Fortunately, it is not secure boot so there is no need for Download Agent selection. The default one that comes with the SP Flash Tool should work fine. The link to the recommended SP Flash Tool is included though - v5.1728 in case you already have it.

  1. Yoou can purchase and download the firmware or flashfile from here: https://www.saroms.co.za/product/mint-connect-orion-firmwarerom-mt6580/
  2. Download the recommended SP Flash Tool version from here: https://mega.nz/#!7UATVAiQ!B4xhV7D6H2rLzIPaebkYXUzDgZkuMy0Bimw_Ltcet9I and extract and lauch it
  3. Click on the Scatter loading button
  4. Navigateto the downloaded and extracted ROM or firmware folder and select the scatter text file from there
  5. Untick the preloader
  6. Ensure 'Download only" is set and not any other mode
  7. Click Donwload - remove and replace the battery
  8. Connect the device to the PC through a USB cable WITHOUT pressing any key
  9. You get a red, purple and then yellow progress bar - the yellow one will proceed for some time
  10. Once done, you get "Download OK" with a tick
  11. At this stage you can disconnect the device and attempt to power it on
  12. If it hangs on the logo screen for much longer, you can boot into recovery and wipe userdata and then retry booting it up again
