- Enable the USB debugging option from your Note device, for doing that go to “Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB debugging” and make sure this option is enabled there.
- Make sure that the battery power left level is more than 80%; otherwise your device can take a forced power off in the middle of the flashing process if it doesn’t have enough power in its battery and this bad thing can damage your device.
