    Basically, got this phone 11 months ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop (I think I know why this happened, since my SD card got corrupted and basically messed everything up, and I never got around to reset it to factory mode, I just took out the SD card and kept on living).

    However, funny thing about Wiko Rainbows, the boot loop is infinite. Even with recovery/factory mode, it just loops and crashes the first screen saying Wiko and when it finally reaches the second one, it just freezes there.

    So I can't fix the boot loop the traditional way. However, I saw many people talking about some "flash" tools or something, but I can't understand if that's for rooted phones or something, which mine isn't.

    Question is, what is the way to get rid of this and if it's this flash thingy how do I do it, or should I just give up and give it back to the store that'll probably do the same but take ages?

    Not familiar with Wiki but found firmware here.
    https://androidmtk.com/download-wiko-stock-rom-models
    Site says download comes with flash tool and instructions. Flashing the stock firmware is done when necessary to fix errors such as bootloops and phone not functioning properly.
    Doesn't matter if you are rooted or stock.
