  14. I mistakenly bricked my infinix Zero some weeks back while using SPflashtool and I tried all manner of things to no avail till I came across a solution that works. What u need to do is to keep ur phone charged for a long time even if there's nothing showing up on your screen.. It's advisable to use a charger of very high capacity (2volts 1amphere) or if u get ur hands on a high capacity power bank (16000Mah or higher) this will boost the battery and it will come up eventually and be patient.... Mine is working now... Hope this helps
