[Please help] Tecno W4 won't display normally after flash with stock rom

#1

Hi, Hovatek, I got a tecno w4 2 days ago, and decided to root it with Twrp, following all necessary steps, the spbflah tool would not download onto the device, si I stopped the flashing, and tried to turn on my phone, but it won't come up, I searched online for issues, and was convinced the device had been bricked, and it could be recovered with sp flash tool by flashing the phone with a custom firmware, I downloaded the firmware but sp flash tool would not download onto the device, so I tried miracle box. Miracle box worked but my device would not come on, so I went searching again and discovered another variant of the ROM, which I downloaded ad used with sp flash tool, voila the download progress came on, and the phone was flashed. I plugged the phone in to a power outlet and within 5 minutes the phone came on, however with a blank display and series of varying colours, I attempted taking a screen shot, and the sound came up, meaning the I was in the Android environment, however the screen remains blank. The phone didn't fall nor hit anything, what could be wrong with it?

You need to flash lk.bin from one of the other firmware

Problem is I don't have the Lk.bin or Preloader.bin of the real variant, so I was wondering if you could help with that, its that of the latest variant of tecno w4

You have a Miracle Box compatible firmware. Flash only preloader and lk.bin from that firmware in Miracle Box
