MediaTek Processors has given great competition to Snapdragon and other Processors. But the development for Mediatek Smartphones is quite less when compared to Snapdragon-based phones. This is because Mediatek doesn’t release their Source code which is ultimately affecting their market. If you love to Tweak our phones, people suggest Snapdragon smartphones are better.

- Phone Information: Your Sim card’s info, you can turn Radio on/off, Run Ping test and much more

4. Backup & Restore IMEI for MTK mobile
This is one of the most Important and useful feature of Mobileuncle MTK Tools. Most of the people don’t know what’s IMEI No., IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is a 15- or 17-digit code that uniquely identifies mobile phone sets. The IMEI code can enable a GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) or UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications Service) network to prevent a misplaced or stolen phone from initiating calls. In simple words, if you lose your device’s IMEI no, you won’t be able to use your Telecom services like making calls, sending messages. Most of the time, after installing any Custom ROMs or Recovery you might loose your IMEI no. which would mess up everything. We have written a detailed guide about, How to Backup/Restore IMEI No. in Mediatek devices. You can refer it if you lose your IMEI in any case.
5. Recovery update – Flash Recovery
If you have a MTK device & you have the recovery file with you but don’t know the procedure “How to Install this recovery”, Mobileuncle MTK Tools is the solution, you just have to Grant Root Permission to Mobileunble MTK Tools (Now yet rooted?

6. Update Tool – Easy update tool via sdcard
This option allows you to flash zip files like OTA updates, Custom ROMs manually without booting into Recovery mode. Just click on the options, Select the .zip file, that’s it!
7. Crack operator GPRS lock for MTK
If you facing sudden drop in your Internet speed or frequent Network drop while using Internet, then this option could be a life saver. If you facing spikes in Network like sometimes it is 1-2Mbps & sometimes it is below 100kbps, then select this option and follow the onscreen notifications.

Its a A GPS fix for those phones having problems locking in or getting a fix or just GPS doesn’t work.

If you have very Poor Internal memory & you keep Installing new Apps everyday. You might encounter Low Storage issues which will ultimately slow down your device. To make your phone faster, you can Install Apps directly in SDcard (Use a Class 10 SDcard for best Performance). Most of the Apps like Link2SD, Mount2SD offer the same feature. But, you can use this App for all in one options. Just select default storage as SDcard & you are good to go!
10. Enable AP
In a wireless local area network , an access point is a station that transmits and receives data (sometimes referred to as a transceiver). An access point connects users to other users within the network and also can serve as the point of interconnection between the WLAN and a fixed wire network. Each access point can serve multiple users within a defined network area; as people move beyond the range of one access point, they are automatically handed over to the next one. A small WLAN may only require a single access point; the number required increases as a function of the number of network users and the physical size of the network. This option in Mobileuncle MTK Tools lets you change the Access points. You can refer this guide: here.
11. Boot into Recovery mode, Bootloader, Reboot & Shutdown System
I don’t think, I need to explain you about this feature. Few users face lot of problem in rebooting to recovery mode or fastboot ,bootloader mode. Its because different smartphones have different key combinations to boot into this modes.
Although Mobileuncle Tools has no use if you don’t like to manipulate system files or want to be on safer side. I would highly recommend you to take Nandroid backup before following any of the guide mentioned above. We won’t be held responsible if you end up bricking your device while experimenting any of the above features.
