Enter recovery mode by using any of the methods previously described. Navigate there with the volume rocker to "Reboot to Bootloader" and press the on / off switch. The phone will restart, but this time switch to download mode.
Method 2: Using ADB  When an ADB connection is established (see above) ), type the following commands at the command prompt of your computer:
