    Hi guys👋
    I want to ask something
    I just backup my stock ROM using GSM Aladdin (using the read flash feature also i ticked save as scatter) and it completed successfully so i went to the folder where it was saved (something like MT6580xxx) and i saw .bin files like boot , system , preloader etc
    So my point is they are all .bin files (excluding the scatter.txt)
    And i want to flash that to my phone using sp flash tool so do i need to make the .bin files to .img files or can i use directly? ? Or is there any other step needed ? Please help

    ROMs are not interchangeable so what you're trying to do isn't going to work. Depending on which phone model is the source and which the destination, at best you'll soft brick your phone (then you need to flash it with the correct stock ROM to restore it), or you'll hard brick it (send it back to the manufacturer and they 'might' be able to restore it).
    Each Android ROM is created specifically for each model -- the issue being the software, drivers, firmware in each ROM only corresponds to the also specific hardware configuration unique to each model. Flashing the ROM for a different model onto your phone will result in a mismatch.

    Thank you for your answer. But that was not my point.
    I said. I took a backup of my stock ROM(infinix Hot 4 lite X557) using GSM Aladdin
    Because i want to take that as a safety in case something happens to my phone i want to flash that backup to my phone(infinix Hot 4 lite X557 ). I want to flash it to the same phone. So i just back up my stock ROM and i am used to s3e ROM files as .img but here i see .bin should i rename those to .img in order to be able to flash that using sp flash tool

    mikedt 你好

    What exactly is this "GSM Aladdin" of what you speak? Is there a website and support for it?

    The basic principle still applies. Your assumption that Android smartphones can be imaged and/or cloned in the same way as a desktop/laptop isn't going to work.
