I have a hard bricked P30 Pro VOG-L29 which I am trying to recover but all the recovery information refers to a scatter file in the firmware folder.I have downloaded various firmware files but have never found a scatter file and I am unable to access the phone to create one. Is there a generic scatter file available to download or are scatter files only found in older firmwares?

As far as i know, scatter files come with devices which have processors from mediatek (mtk), not with prcessors from qualcomm or huawei or samsung for example. i maybe wrong, but since android 10 the structure of ram and rom have changed and i didnt heard of scatter files a longer time ago., so i assume that scatter files, which contain the structure of memory are unnessasary/not used in newer Devices respectively in other devices than mtk ... sorry for my not very professional explanation. i hope, a specialist will later give you a more solid answer...
P.S.: I would try to acces to the device via adb or fastboot mode, there is an emergency mode, too if i know well...

Thanks for the reply its much appreciated.
I found references all over the net regarding scatter files for the P30 Pro, but as we all know, the net can be a dangerous place. It was my last hope of recovering the phone as there is no life apart from a slight vibration when trying to turn the phone on. I don't feel that it is worth the expense of a phone repairer as there is also a slight crack in the screen so will probably put it on fleabay and cut my losses.
I disconnected the battery and when I reconnected I was stuck in fastboot mode. I disconnected the battery a second time and then the phone was dead.
