No, never use format all + download if you don't know what it will going to be. As long as your device still detect as mediatek preloade usv vcom port on you computer you still can revive your device.

After updating the driver, Mediatek PreLoader USB VCOM Port was appearing for a few seconds and then disappearing. This was happening again and again. What to do???

Hi,
If you sure that you already update the driver then just continued to the next step. Try to flash if flash tool still stuck at 0% then just install the driver again
