is step 10 necessary?

Are these steps necessary?

Step 9 - You will see Flashtools say Device Connected in FlashMode Now click on Thunder Button.

Step 10 - And select FLASH MODE and Click OK Select Firmware 18.5.A.0.26 and in Wipe Menu Remove mark From CACHE AND DATA and in Exclude Menu Mark All but not Kernel. Now Click on Flash button.


In the other post, there are no steps similar to these. In the other post, after fixing root, you have to boot your device and now check its root.

    In Part 1 is there doing just root right? Nothing update, why my dispositiv0 already is updated ( 4.4.4 )

    I can,t understand what are you saying.but it does not matter if your device came with 4.4.4 you still need ftf file to flash 4.4.4 kernel on your device and thare is nothing going to be updated if you are already on 4.4.4 but you are going to downgrade kernel for flashing supersu.zip then update kernel using ftf.
