    2. . Unzip the files and click on install adb-setup-1.4.2.exe (You can find this in Bootloader Kit)

    3. . Hold Shift and Right Click anywhere in the folder to open PowerShell window or Command Prompt Window

    4. Now just copy  paste this command: fastboot devices

    5. . After running the above command if it shows the serial number of your device, it means you are good to go

    6. . Now copy paste this command:  fastboot oem lock

    7. . Then, copy paste this command: fastbook reboot bootloader
