Hey guys, new member here

I was trying to unroot my phone using a factory image. However, when I downloaded the factory image, it downloaded as a document and not as a zipped file. This means that I only downloaded a document (which when opened showed symbols) and not the other files (flash-all) which are required for a factory image flash. I have looked everywhere and can't find a fix. I would appreciate if anyone could help me out here

Thanks in advance!

Here did you download the image. Is it a .tgz file?

The factory image in .tgz format needs to he extracted in platform-tools folder assuming you're using the SDK (I used WinRAR to do so). Open up Command prompt and CD to platform-tools and type in fastboot flash-all while connected to USB in fastboot mode (you can also try typing just ) It'll begin writing and you will lose everything.
