HI May I know which version of windows are you using?
My SP Flash tool doesn't help
I used whatever methods they used to install driver to detect my phone while its off
But unfortunately it just cannot detect
I am using Windows 8 x64
I take out the battery methods, install without driver enforecement
Still no avail

Any advice?
