    What would happen if a person did everything correctly, step by step, but messed up and the phone booted before person in question could flash the second firmware file?

    Advice will be hugely appreciated.

      On the positive side everything looks alright inside except that the version says Android 4.3 but shows the N if you tap on it, EMUI version says 2 instead of 5 but looks like 5 as well. Also it doesn’t seem like there was any worrying data loss either.

    Hi thanks for this tutorial. I have almost got it working. I Flashed the however I didn’t realise there was a second .zip i needed (i thought they were mirrors!) So I only flashed the 1300 mb .zip. I am worried now because it seems to be running 7.0 because the ui has changed, but I havne’t installed the second part. How can I go about this because now the TWRP won’t boot (because it’s technically in 7.0)?
