    MY MICROMAX P290 TAB IS HARD BRICKED AFTER UNLOCKING BOOTLOADER.IT WAS ROOTED BEFORE UNLOCKING BOOTLOADER AND IT IS NOT RECOGNIZED BY FLASH TOOL WHEN I AM GOING TO FLASH IT. THIS TAB HAS ONLY WIFI. AND ITS FLASHING SCATTER FILE IS IN FORMAT OF .SCA INSTEAD OF .TXT, DUE TO THIS PROBLEM I AM UNABLE TO FLASH IT WITH SP FLASH TOOL V5.1644. AND WHEN I AM GOING TO FLASH IT WITH WISELINK TOOL V5.5 IT IS NOT RECOGNIZING. I FLASHED THIS TAB 3 MONTHS AGO WITH THIS TOOL AND IT WORKED SMOOTHLY.
    I UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER AFTER THAT IT WAS BRICKED. THE PROCESS OF UNLOCKING BOOTLOADER VIA ADB FASTBOOT
    AND THE MESSAGE OF CMD IS GIVEN BELOW:

    C:\Users\KANCHRAJ\Desktop\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools>fastboot devices
    *************** fastboot

    I GOT MESSAGE IN TAB THAT UNLOCKING BOOTLOADER WILL ALLOW YOU TO FLASH CUSTOM ROM,THIS WILL DELETE ALL YOUR PERSONAL FILES,APPS,ETC AND ONE WARNING ABOUT LOST DEVICE WILL NOT BE SECURED.
    PRESS VOLUME UP FOR YES
    AND PRESS VOLUME DOWN FOR NO.
    I PRESS VOLUME UP AND IT TOOK 2-5 MINUTES AND THEN CAME BACK TO FASTBOOT MODE. THEN I I GAVE COMMAND IN PC: fastboot reboot
    AND AFTER THIS IT IS NOT RESPONSING TO POWER ON SWITCH AND EVEN IT IS NOT TAKING CHARGE.
