what an impressive write up you got here.

However,I have issues with copying files from my tecno w3 to my laptop and vice versa.

Anytime I try to copy with USB cable, only the internal storage pops up on my laptop.

Kindly assist with a guide on how to improve this for many to learn.

I am afraid i cant provide a guide on this since i haven't had the experience before.

But i would advice you take your phone to the nearest Tecno Carl care or Tecno shop and lay your complaint to them. Thanks

Nice, the only problem I am encountering is that my system isn't detecting my phone.
I have installed the USB driver and I see that there's a problem cause the trouble shoot icon appears on it
You know the yellow triangle
�� and ! Caution.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled yet nothing.

It tells me code 10, think it says not found.

Check your USB cable and USB port.

25 March 2017 at 11:45 delete

My cable is fine the port okey
Let me ask, when installing the driver should my phone be connected. Because I have used more than one PC to try the process but the same thing still happens

And the message was that the system could *not start code 10*

*When installing the driver, your phone should not be connected

*Check this on google..How to Fix Code 10 Errors...hope it helps

And please just to check if other things are well in place.

where do I download TWRP recovery.img to, phone or PC?

For the do flash tool.
After loading the scatter.txt
What is needed to be selected
Firmware +download
Firmware upgrade or
Download only.

2) after loadingvthe scatter.txt
The recovery is then marked with its location acquired
But the preloader
User and the rest are not marked.

Is there a problem with that or am I to acquire there locations manually or leave them that way?

If manually then how?

1.) Select download mode only

2.) You are flashing the recovery, so only the recovery needs to be marked.

Leave them that way.

Phone or PC or both

Place it in a folder on your PC

After iput the recovery TWRP file and reboot with volume and power, it shows like a bluescreen version of windows: a white screen with squares or lines. Clearly crushed. Now i put it again to normal state from my backup. Seems like this is not meant for my tecnho W3 build number W3-H806A1-M-170204V109 model.
