[Please help] Privacy Protection password after doing hard reset due to forgotten unlock pattern

#1

Hi, I forgot the unlock pattern for my Tecno P5 Plus and in an attempt to remove the pattern, I did a hard reset but when the phone booted after that, there was a message which says to enter "Privacy Protection Password". I read somewhere that the only solution is to flash the phone with the rom file. I am hereby asking for help to get the file for this phone (P5+).
I actually tried to read back the boot and recovery images with SP Flash Tool but it kept giving error.
I'll be grateful to you for helping me get the file for this phone.
Thanks in advance.

Hello!
Thanks so much for the other day. I was able to flash the P5 plus successfully with the file I downloaded from your site.

When I first flashed it, it still asked for the privacy protection password. So I booted the phone into factory mode and did "clear emmc" and when the phone booted, it was ok.
Thanks again.
