It is better not to move any device during the flashing process, the Status will return Waiting for reset done.... and the progress bar does not move for a long time, you can unplug the USB cable, take out the battery and then install it back on.

If the progress bar is finished soon, please check Status to see if there is Download Fail! information, if there is, please check the driver and cable and interface.

We doesn’t recommended to flash under Windows 10, because some computers using USB2.0 interface have compatibility problems.
