  1. Extract the firmware file to the ADB and fastboot installation directory.

  2. Now go to ADB and fastboot installation directory and open the command window there by pressing shift + right click anywhere in that folder.

  3. Now Reboot your phone into Bootloader mode by turning it off and press and hold Power + Volume Down.
