What is Sahara protocol and what is it used for?




Sahara protocol is a part of QFIL tool that allows the communication between the PC and the device. It is responsible for downloading the flash programmer file to the device's memory. The flash programmer file contains the instructions for flashing the device.


What is flash programmer and what is it used for?




Flash programmer is a file that has a .mbn extension and contains the code that runs on the device's processor during flashing. It allows QFIL to access the device's memory and write the firmware files to it. Flash programmer files are specific to each device model and chipset.


What causes the error "qfil unable to download flash programmer using sahara protocol"?




The error "qfil unable to download flash programmer using sahara protocol" means that QFIL cannot send the flash programmer file to the device's memory using Sahara protocol. There are several possible reasons for this error, such as:


  • Incompatible firmware: If you are trying to flash a wrong firmware or variant of your device, then you could run into this error.



  • Old QFIL version: You might run into this error when using an old version of QFIL relative to your device. You should use the latest version of QFIL available.



  • QFIL standalone: There are two formats of QFIL; one which is co-installed with QPST (Qualcomm Product Support Tool) and QFIL standalone. If you are encountering Sahara fail while using the standalone, then you should install the latest version of QPST and use the QFIL that comes with it.



  • Incompatible programmer file: You might find multiple programmer files (with firehose in the name) in your firmware. If you do, then you should try the others in the firmware. If not, then you should try a different factory firmware.



  • Space in file path: You should check the file path to your firmware and ensure there is no space in any of the directory names. For example, have C:\\Users\\Hovatek\\Desktop\\Hovatek_files\\QFIL_Qualcomm instead of C:\\Users\\Hovatek\\Desktop\\Hovate k files\\QFIL_Qualcomm.



  • EDL mode timing: You should enter EDL mode just before clicking the Download button in QFIL. If you enter EDL mode too early, the device might disconnect or timeout.



How to fix the error "qfil unable to download flash programmer using sahara protocol"?




Depending on the cause of the error, you can try one or more of the following solutions to fix it:


Solution 1: Use compatible firmware




The first and most important thing to do is to make sure you are using the correct firmware for your device model and variant. You can check the device information from the Settings > About phone menu or from the sticker under the battery. You can also use tools like QPST Configuration or QFIL to read the device information from EDL mode. You should download the firmware from a reliable source and verify its compatibility before flashing it.


Solution 2: Use latest QFIL version




You should always use the latest version of QFIL available for your device. You can download QFIL from the official Qualcomm website or from reputable third-party websites. You should also check for updates regularly and install them if available. Using an outdated version of QFIL can cause compatibility issues and errors.


Solution 3: Use QFIL with QPST




If you are using QFIL standalone, you might encounter Sahara fail error due to missing drivers or components. To avoid this, you should install QPST (Qualcomm Product Support Tool) on your PC and use the QFIL that comes with it. QPST is a suite of tools that includes QFIL, QPST Configuration, EFS Explorer, Software Download, and more. You can download QPST from the official Qualcomm website or from reputable third-party websites.


Solution 4: Use compatible programmer file




If you are using a firmware that contains multiple programmer files (with firehose in the name), you should try each one of them until you find the one that works for your device. You can select the programmer file from the Browse button in QFIL under Select Programmer section. If none of them work, you should try a different firmware that has a compatible programmer file for your device.

Solution 5: Avoid space in file path




You should check the file path to your firmware and make sure there is no space in any of the directory names. For example, have C:\\Users\\Hovatek\\Desktop\\Hovatek_files\\QFIL_Qualcomm instead of C:\\Users\\Hovatek\\Desktop\\Hovate k files\\QFIL_Qualcomm. Having space in file path can cause Sahara fail error due to communication issues between QFIL and the device.


Solution 6: Enter EDL mode just before flashing




You should enter EDL mode on your device just before clicking the Download button in QFIL. If you enter EDL mode too early, the device might disconnect or timeout and cause Sahara fail error. To enter EDL mode on your Qualcomm device, you can use one of the following methods:


  • Use ADB command: Connect your device to PC via USB cable and enable USB debugging from Settings > Developer options. Open a command prompt window on your PC and type adb devices to check if your device is detected. Then type adb reboot edl to reboot your device into EDL mode.



  • Use fastboot command: Connect your device to PC via USB cable and boot it into fastboot mode by pressing Volume Down + Power buttons together. Open a command prompt window on your PC and type fastboot devices to check if your device is detected. Then type fastboot oem edl to reboot your device into EDL mode.
