How to Resurrect Your Completely Dead Tecno Camon C8

Most of us, especially beta testers, are into frequent upgrading & downgrading of roms. But what if you mistakenly shifted your laptop or cable & your phone refuses to respond at all? It happened to me so, I deviced this method to unbrick my prestigious Camon C8, it will surely work for every other MTK device.

From my research, discovery and knowledge, the problem is that the preloader is corrupt.

The duty of the preloader is to ensure that your computer recognizes and connects with the phone.
