It would be good to have a link and procedure to install the Mediatek Vcom drivers for Linux please.
I did manage to do the operation on a borrowed (windows) laptop, but it would be better to use my own!

Go to the start menu and click restart while holding shift, to get into the advanced boot menu. Navigate to "Startup Settings", wait until it loads and press 7 or F7. Make sure "Disable driver signature enforcement" is highlighted, then press enter and you'll start in the correct mode. Install the drivers and continue flashing.

It allows you to flash Scatter Based Stock Firmware on devices powered by Mediatek Chipset. All you need to have the correct Scatter based Stock Firmware of your device.
Always use the latest version of the sp flash tool along with the previous versions.

Great post.
But I was having a problem with my phone due to flashing a custom rom using twrp. The best solution I could think of right now is flashing a stock rom. But whenever you plug your phone using your charger or to a pc it boots up to twrp recovery.
Is it not going to affect the whole process when using sp flash tool because you have to plug your phone to your pc.
