Common Errors after flashing a device
If you have null or invalid imei number after flash, restore with mtk engineering mode app, chamelephon, SN Write Tool or mtk droid tools
If device bootloops after flash process, do a factory reset from recovery.
If screen of device divides/displays funny colours when boot up, use another ROM or Firmware
