Important Notice
  • Its important you only flash firmware for your exact phone model, region or build as doing otherwise could brick the device
  • Its recommended you backup your phone's firmware before flashing just in case the files / firmware you flash bricks the device
  • NCK Pro box ideally requires a hardware box to work so merely installing the setup and running won't work
  • Should you choose to use a loader version (no hardware box required) then you could run into errors from your antivirus. You are entirely responsible for choosing to ignore these warnings
  • NCK Box will attempt to find the right loader for your device. If it fails to or you have a loader you're sure will work then you can set NCK box to use the custom loader instead
  • The exact method of booting into EDL on your device could vary from what's mentioned in this guide so run a search to know how to get your own device into EDL if the above doesn't work. Some devices might even require an EDL cable

Quote:In this video tutorial, I'll be explaining how to flash a Qualcomm Android phone using NCK box. You need to have the hardware box and set it up. We have a guide on how to do that. You need to also install your Qualcomm drivers, we also have a guide for that. You need to download & install the NCK box Qualcomm module setup, this is it right here. You also need to have the firmware which you want to flash to your phone. I'm going to show you a preview of what it looks like. Alright! Great! Now, once you have all these in place, launch the NCK box Qualcomm module and wait for it to come up. This is the dashboard. Click on the FLASHER tab [resizing]

Now, double-click this RAWPROGRAM field. In this window that pops up, navigate to the folder where you have your firmware and you select the rawprogram() XML file and click Open. That is going to load all the available files from the firmware. You can untick any file you don't intend to flash. It really depends on you. I'm going to untick heavy files to make the flashing process much faster. You can leave everything ticked if you want but I want to speed up this flashing so I'll just untick system because its a very heavy partition, and userdata. Once you've done this, what you'll want to do is to click Flash Firmware.

Once you see searching for phone, you power off the device, still with battery in it, you hold both volume buttons then connect it to the box via the USB cord this is your EDL Mode. Once you connect it to the box, you should have detection like I have here and flashing should begin shortly. Alright! flashing has begun. Just sit back, do not interrupt the process. [flashing]

Alright! Great! So flashing is done. That's basically how to flash a Qualcomm Android phone using NCK box Qualcomm module.
