More newer Mediatek devices / chipsets are having a Secured Bootloader. This means you can’t flash files to any of its partitions without an Authentication (*.auth) file or Secure Boot DA file. Mediatek Boxes like CM2 would give you a Secure Boot! error while SP flash tool would throw up Authentication or Buffer errors. It’ll also come in handy when trying to bypass Factory Reset Protection (FRP)
A Download Agent (DA) enables your favorite Mediatek Flash Tool to read and write to the device. In a case where the default DA can’t, you’ll encounter constant errors or the phone just powering up when you connect (this dates as far back as the Tecno M3S & P5S). This is where a custom DA file comes in. Depending on the tool you’re using, you manually load the custom DA ( MTK_AllInOne_DA_SP.bin or DA_SWSEC.bin ) .
