Causes of error

As follows from the text of the error itself, its occurrence is associated with a failure in initializing the phone memory (DRAM). Usually, this dysfunction occurs during the phone flashing using the SP Flash Tool toolkit, while the phone itself by that time may not respond to the user's repeated attempts to turn it on.

What could be the causes of the S_FT_ENABLE_DRAM_FAIL (4032) problem? I would highlight the following:

  • Incorrect preloader;
  • The selected firmware does not fit this mobile device;
  • Outdated version of the used program SP Flash Tool;
  • Low battery phone during the firmware;
  • Incorrect scatter file;
  • Sudden interruption of the firmware process (the YUSB cable is accidentally disconnected, the phone has undergone external mechanical impact, etc.);
  • The USB cable is physically damaged;
  • Incorrectly or incompletely installed drivers for firmware (Mediatek USB VCOM);
  • The firmware is used for the original phone model, although the phone itself is not the original model (cheap clone);
  • Physical failure of the phone's memory.
