    after that i remove the usb cable, i clicked on scatter loading and i browse to the folder of the downloaded twrp recovery (i have unzipped the file)so select the scatter files. i click on download but nothing happen even when i press the volume up button. later i remove d cable and try to boot my device but it's not responding to the power button.
    i think the preloader file of my phone has been corrupted so if you can please send me just the preloader, lk, boot files @ eyebiokink@gmail.com so i can flash it i will really appreciate it.

    Note: pls not the whole STOCK ROM files, just PRELOADER, LK, BOOT files.
