  1. The firmware you are trying to flash is bigger than your phone's partitions.

    Verify that you are flashing your phone's exact firmware, or download a different ROM.

    • Hi Isaac. After using the format option, you’re supposed to flash your device with its stock firmware, else it will be stuck at boot or might not even display boot screen at all.

      But you should be able to access fastboot/flashmode to flash the firmware.
