Before starting:

1. You should be running Android Jelly Bean (either 4.1.2 or 4.3).
2  We have said this time and time again, and still do so, to please make a backup of all your data to ensure no loss of personal, important information.
3. As always, make sure to have at least 80% battery charge and you have all the necessary USB drivers.
4. Also please enable USB debugging.
5. Once again, we are in no way liable to the damage that may occur to your device as a result of this procedure.
