              I followed the guide rigorously. I downloaded the files, I installed the VCOM drivers, then I launched the sp flash tool, I selected the scatter and checked only the recovery part in the sp flash tool window. I pressed on download and I connected automatically my phone that I had already extinguished.

              The flashing process don’t start and i see this message : “PMT changed for the ROM. its must be downloaded. Please select “Format All + Download” scene and try again”.
