Click on the "Download" button next to the flash file or customer care file that matches your device version and region.

Compare the scatter file with the one on your device. You can find the scatter file on your device by going to Settings > About Phone > Software Information and tapping on "Build Number" seven times. This will enable Developer Options in Settings. Go to Developer Options and enable USB Debugging. Then connect your device to your computer and open a command prompt window. Type "adb devices" to check if your device is recognized. Then type "adb shell cat /proc/mtd" to see the partition layout of your device. You should see something like this:

Make sure that the scatter file and the partition layout have the same number of partitions, names, sizes, and addresses. If they are different, you may have downloaded a wrong or incompatible file. Do not flash it on your device, as it may cause serious damage. Look for another file that matches your device version and region.
After checking the file version and compatibility, you need to extract the file and prepare the tools for flashing. To do this, you can follow these steps:
Create a new folder on your desktop and name it something like "Walton Primo GM3 Plus Flashing".
Copy the extracted folder "Walton_Primo_GM3_Plus_MT6739_8.1.0" to the new folder.
Download the USB driver for Walton Primo GM3 Plus from https://www.waltonbd.com/index.php?route=information/information&information_id=26 and extract it to the new folder.

To backup your data to a cloud service, you can follow these steps:
On your device, go to Settings > Accounts and sync and sign in with your Google account or any other cloud service account you have.
Select the data types you want to backup, such as contacts, calendar, photos, etc. and enable the sync option for them.
Wait for the sync process to complete. You can check the progress and status in the notification bar.
You can access your backed up data from any other device or computer by signing in with the same account.
After backing up your data, you need to enable USB debugging on your device. USB debugging is a mode that allows your device to communicate with your computer and SP Flash Tool. Without USB debugging, SP Flash Tool will not be able to flash your device.

On your device, go to Settings > About Phone and tap on "Build Number" seven times. This will enable Developer Options in Settings.
