the file you sent was our own backup, what we need are individual files from your end, waiting for those. In the mean time, After loading scatter file in sp flash tool,
1. What items are ticked
2. What items aren't ticked?

if that was ur backup, that is the backup i used, downloaded it from there.
i ticked all the items i listed above that i was allowed to load via the scatter file i attached in the email i sent.
I tried flashing just the boot, recovery and system files at first, when its downloading to the fone, i tried flashing just the preloader, then i ticked all of them for loading.
Thanks for ur response.

If i get you right, you didn't use the scatter file in our backup you downloaded. Where did you get the scatter file you used?

Please, for this session, you'll only be using the scatter file contained in our backup. Now, load the scatter file in our backup and tell us which items are ticked and which items are not ticked
