    • RANA Nazar

      all the 3 files which is required by QFIL SHOULD BE IN THE MOBILE ORIGINALS FIRMWARE/ROM IN SAME FOLDER NOT FROM 8675_W00 FOLDER NAZAR6 IN GMAIL

  • Gaurav Panda

    ok the method worked but after flashing the phone went into bootloop

  • Gaurav Panda
    • First match the version of the Firmware.
      Disable driver signature enforcement
      Restart PC and press F8 during boot
      then select “Disable driver signature enforcement”
