  1. I would try to flash with this system, so far with it, I only worked with TWRP and miflasf tool. I can not find the experience of other users to see what are the possible problems
    otherwise this method works very simple and elegant. Anyone can confirm that the flash is in this way

  2. I am unable to flash the device
    Error is critical partition flashing is not allowed.
    Kindly provide a solution.
