  • Now in twrp, swipe to right to allow modifications. This will prevent from booting so after flashing twrp, you need to flash lazy flasher, else your device will become bricked, so download lazy flasher from here and flash it in twrp.
  • Reboot back to your device. The first reboot after flashing twrp might take some time and may also reboot few times. Please dont worry. It will work fine and reboot back to system perfectly.
