Warning: This flashing operation involves significant risks and can damage your phone, if you do not want to take this risk, entrust this task to a professional or to the condor after-sales service. Back up all the data (tutorial) of your phone before reinstalling the firmware (format, flash) on your Condor phone.
Condor smartphones are equipped with the Android operating system, this operating system created by Google is the most widely used system to harness the power of smartphones. As with computers, smartphones can also encounter problems with possible malfunctions of one or more components caused by one or more errors in the Android system.
Some issues found in Condor smartphones require formatting of devices. Formatting is the complete removal of the operating system as well as all content on the smartphone (The smartphone is completely empty). Once the smartphone has been formatted, you will need to reinstall Android (the device's operating system) by downloading the Android firmware (ROM) (see the list of Condor smartphone firmwares below).
These two operations of formatting and reinstalling Android are called "flashing".
Note Béné: This tutorial explains flashing the Condor phone and not the hard reset of the phone. The Hard Reset allows the Condor phone to be reset to factory defaults, resulting in the loss of all data and the maintenance of the operating system, in which case the phone will boot normally. On the other hand, formatting deletes all data as well as the Android operating system, in this specific case the phone will no longer start and it becomes necessary to reinstall Android in order for the device to work.
