One of my friends called me while performing the same. Sadly, when I asked him whether the phone was off or on, he told me that he was performing the operation when the mobile was on, and which is wrong. The right way is first turning off the phone before starting the procedure.
Option 4: Change the PC port, or even the Cord
Did you know that a bad cord can hinder the successful of the flashing operation? If you didn’t know, take it from me, that it can. If you arent sure of it, I recommend you buy a working genuine USB cable and use it. Also, changing the PC port can help you in case the former wasn’t working.
