Entire flash memory formatted (including bootloader).

Hello!
I have a MTK 6589 based phone (Meo smart A70, based on the Gionee Elife E3, I believe).
The internal memory was entirely formatted including bootlader.
So the phone does not even turn on...completely dead...

I have a second phone, which is working. Following information here, using Mtk droid tools, I made a complete backup of the working phone.

My difficulty is with the process of downloading it to the bricked phone:
- I start SP Flash Tool (v3.1344.0.212),
- select the scatter file created with mtk droid tools,
- choose "download",
- connect the bricked phone (w/o battery),
- the red progress bar reaches 100%,
- before the download starts it shows the error: "Error 4032; Message: BROM ERROR : S_FT_ENABLE_DRAM_FAIL (4032) [EMI] Enable DRAM fail".

Am I doing something wrong?

P.S.: As I mentioned in another thread, this forum is amazing!

Make sure the battery is charged and leave it in the phone

error 4032 is a mismatch error. refer to https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-439.html
its either the firmware isn't compatible with your phone or you ticked a box with an empty file path or whose file you dont have. Use download only.
lets see a screenshot of the whole of SP flash tool when the error pops up
