When I do this it gets stuck on the "switching to emergency download mode" screen for several hours before saying it was unsuccessful and rebooting my phone to normal mode. How do I fix this?

Nope. If I keep the mobile connected to my laptop and try soft or hard reset, it makes sound but nothing happens on the mobile.

Well, you can get the FFU file of your Lumia at http://lumiafirmware.com/. But after unlocking the bootloader from the selected FFU file, will flashing the FFU file with unlocked bootloader erase all data from my phone??? I'm just making sure before I start the process because I have a game (mostly used) named Asphalt 8: Airborne, and I don't want to get it erased coz it took literally two days to fully download it... Since we have a slow internet connection (about 70+ to 90+ KB/s average), I cant do it again! So, in conclusion, will this erase all data from my phone after flashing it with unlocked bootloader???????
PS: Lumia 520

Just a quick question, I'm about to use the updated Windows Phone Internals 2.3. I only want to Unlock the Bootloader and Enable root access (for Lumia 950). Doing these alone shouldn't erase phone data, right?

928 Mistake?

It was stated that the 928 could have its bootloader unlocked

Supported Phones:
Lumia 520, 521, 525, 620, 625, 720, 820, 920, 925, 928, 1020 and 1320 are supported. These bootloaders can be unlocked.

But there is no transparent way stated... Does this require using one of the other sbl files or was it a simple mistake hat it was put on the supported list?

Running Android on Nokia 1520

Read the treads instead of asking for stuff that not only does not exist, but is not needed at all.
SBL3 files are not required for unlocking any Lumia, and are only optionally used on 520 to 1320.
For 1520 and above there is no SBL3 at all.

Thanks, I did tried different permutation and combination.
1. I tried with the FFU that I got from WDRT (stored in ProgramData) - Didn't work
2. Downloaded the files from Windows Phone Internal - Didn't work
3. Downloaded the FFU and all bin and edp file from lumiafirmware - didn't work
4. Tried a different FFU for another phone - Didn't work.
5. Tried with a different SBL3 - Didn't work. (just wanted to try it out)

I am getting error - "Value Cannot be null. Parameter name: No FFU with supported OS version was provided."

So, I was not able to pinpoint, what I am doing wrong or which combination should I select, as all FFU images are giving the same error. Please guide me to proceed further.

My Product Type - RM-940
and ProductCode - 059V5B2

Thanks in Advance.

Running Android on Nokia 1520

In this case read the getting started page of WPInternals that says you need to select a second FFU of a different model,. but with a supported OS version, if your OS version is not supported. Keep your original FFU as the first file, ede as the second, the supported FFU as third. Try 950/950XL FFU files for that one

Thanks for getting back. I was able to proceed to next Step, using 950XL FFU, it failed few times, got hex code errors, but I kept repeating and in the end, I was through. I was able to Unlock bootloader and Enable Root Access (I got success message...:) ).

Now, for installing Android ROM, I searched LineageOS (https://wiki.lineageos.org/devices/), Lumia 1520 was not on their list, and was not able to get something from google as well. (Sorry, I am not techie).

Can you please point, which ROM should I be using to install Android on Nokia Lumia 1520.

Thanks in Advance.
