Smart Phone Flash Tool Error NO_SPACE (5069)

When you flash or write firmware of upgrade firmware using Smart Phone Flash Tool or SP Flash Tool, sometimes you get some error messages, one of the most common error message is BROM ERROR : S_DL_PMT_ERR_NO_SPACE (5069), so here is the tutorial about how to solve this error on Smart Phone Flash Tool and why this error message comes.

Smart Phone Flash Tool No Space Error Message:

1) MediaTek SP Flash Tool V5.13.52.200
Build: 2013/12/26 14:40 (0x88123f2e)

2) MediaTek SP Flash Tool v5.1612.00
Build: 2016/03/22 22:49 (0x331524)

SP Flash Tool v5.1352.01 BROM ERROR  S_DL_PMT_ERR_NO_SPACE (5069)

Why This Error No Space 5069?

This message is commonly comes when you try a different version of firmware or flash file to flash the phone. So to flash a phone just check the version info on the IMEI sticker and flash the correct firmware according to the hardware version of the phone. This type of mistake happens when you flash the same model with different hardware info i.e. Micromax A120 has two variant 8GB ROM and 4GB ROM, so here if you flash the 8GB ROM firmware on 4GB ROM phone then you will get this error message. so finally the error 5069 message means there is no space on the phone to write the firmware you have selected.

Note: The firmware version may same but the primary partition and other partitions on the phone is different from the firmware you selected depends on the MTK scatter file.

SP_Flash_Tool_v5.1612 BROM ERROR  S_DL_PMT_ERR_NO_SPACE (0x13CD)

How to Solve This Error Message?

In this case you must download correct firmware i.e. H/W version, S/W version, ROM size and Partition size should be same and flash the phone. The version and chipset may same but if there is a little different on the firmware then this error message will come.

This type of error message I faced on Micromax A120 and other Android smart phones, so when you flash a Android smart phone first take a full backup of the firmware (you can use Miracle box to read flash) then flash the phone if not success write back the firmware you read before.


  1. This is not the solution to this problem which you provided. Error: S_DL_PMT_ERR_NO_SPACE means that the EMMC is damaged and needs to be replaced.

    1. Thank you for your comment:

      You are right but in some cases the above process will work fine and I personally tested on some models, but in most of the cases as you says this error comes due to EMMC damage.

    2. how to replace
      im using micromax a120 ,same error comes,rom ok

  2. Mmx a117 nand flash not detected probulem on memory check please help

    1. If the problem is on Memory or Internal Storage, then it's difficult to flash the phone, in some cases it having some problem in Chip-set on Motherboard.
