phone is dead bricked

#1

The model of my phone is Tecno m3. It just got dead bricked (it does not show any sign of booting not even the tecno boot logo. it just vibrates and stays like that for hours...).

It started when I tried to correct an anomaly which made my phone's data and come on itself (whenever that happens the phone would hang if I'm using any 3rd party app until I switch them both off). I first rooted the phone, installed custom recovery and tried to wipe data/factory reset 3 times to no avail (the wipe data would be completed but when I reboot my phone I'll find nothing happened in all three times).

So I decided to install a custom Rom since I was still running stock Rom. The Rom I used was the one I had already installed for a friend on her own tecno m3 so I was confident it had to work.
The first 2 times I tried I received an error message but with the third trial it started installing (only for it to stop midway and go off).

Since then my phone have not been able to come on, charge or do anything. Please I'll like to request permission to download the stock m3 Rom so I can unbrick my phone. Thanks

It was running on 4.2 but the rom I wanted to install is a 4.4. I dont know which to choose now since the rom did'nt finish installing (I'll like you to help me on which to choose, whether 4.2 or 4.4).

sorry, we have working hours and 10PM doesnt fall within the range
if the phone was running on OS 4.2 then you should not be flashing the M3 4.4 ROM because they're two different phones. The M3 4.4 isnt a ROM upgrade of the M3 4.2, they're two very different phones
since the phone was originally running on OS 4.2, you're yet to tell me if it was running on old or new OS
check the pics @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-311.html to confirm

I'm sorry I now get what you mean, its the old m3 running stock 4.2 I have. I've done all you said with using mtkdroid tools to backup an existing Rom and spflash tools to flash the Rom.

My phone now boots but it only shows a white screen even after making the tecno boot sound and all. Pls what else can I do..??
