1. Phone flashing using CWM Recovery
The rich functionality of CWM Recovery allows you to perform many manipulations with the device, including rolling the firmware. By default, stock Recovery is installed in the devices, which means that first you need to install the ClockWorkMod Recovery utility itself.
The general firmware process described below is for ZIP files. Instructions: - Download the firmware you are interested in and place it on the phone's SD card.
- Turn off your phone in any convenient way.
- Depending on the phone manufacturer, press a specific combination of buttons on the phone body. A universal option is to try pressing the following keys.
- Press the buttons: Volume up (or Volume Down) (+Home) + Power together for a while.
- The phone will then boot into Recovery mode.
- Use the volume buttons to navigate through the menus and press the Power button to make a selection.
- Highlight 'Wipe data / factory reset' and press the Power button.
- Select 'Yes - delete all user data' from the menu and press the Power button.
- Next in the menu, select 'Wipe cashe partition'.
- Select 'Yes - Wipe cache' from the menu and press the Power button.
- Next select 'advanced' in the menu.
- Select 'Wipe Dalvik Cache' from the menu and press the Power button.

2. Flashing the phone using TWRP Recovery
For those who prefer working with the utility in the form of TWRP Recovery, the following instructions for the step-by-step installation of the update in the form of a ZIP archive are offered:
- Upload the file with the firmware image to the device's memory.
- Go to TWRP recovery. This is done in the same way as with CWM.
- Perform a factory reset by tapping the 'Wipe' option in the main menu. When finished cleaning the phone, return to the original menu by pressing the 'Back' key.
- From the main menu select 'Install' and find and select the firmware file. Click on it by dragging the slider to the side.
- After that, the firmware process will start. This will take about 2-3 minutes.
- Upon completion, the utility will automatically display a message about successful flashing. By clicking on the item 'Reboot System', reboot the device.

3. Flashing the phone using Fastboot
A universal tool for flashing Android smartphones using a PC is the Fastboot utility. It is part of the SDK Platform Tools, which means it is suitable for a large number of devices.
Before starting the firmware, you need to get access to the system kernel. Very often, many manufacturers block this system parameter, not wanting users to change the system files of their firmware images with their own hands. To do this, you need to unblock Bootloader. To do this, you need to study the detailed instructions for configuring and managing the command line. Before starting the firmware using a computer, do not forget to enable USB debugging of the device in the engineering settings of the device.
- Copy the .zip archive with the image, and place it in the folder with 'ADB'
- Put your smartphone into fastboot mode and write the prompt in the command line: fastbooflash zip
- Wait until the end of the installation and reboot the device.
