Proceed:
B1: Create bootable USB checkra1n:

B2: Boot into USB boot to run checkra1n.

- And finally the results.









B3: Turn off the phone.

COMMON MISTAKE:





Common errors as shown in the image below









Way 1: Check if your computer has booted USB in the bios or not? (Newer machines are almost always powered on.) If you are Disable, please Enable it. You can find the instructions on google or refer here: https://quantrimang.com/cach-thiet-lap-bios-de-boot-tu-usb-cd-dvd-o-cung-ngoai-131742)





Method 2: Create USB boot again but the "Partition scheme ” convert from MBR to GPT





Method 3: Use BalenaEtcher create USB instead Rufus





- Download link BalenaEtcher here: https://www.balena.io/etcher/





- Create bootable USB with BalenaEtcher even simpler than using Rufus









  • Select the iso file of checkn1x.
  • Select the USB to create.
  • Flash.




=> Done!





- However, I have tested it BalenaEtcher on my 2 USB flash drives and after creating a bootable USB, they will reduce the capacity from 16gb to ~ 2gb (don't understand why). If you need to copy heavy files, follow the instructions below to get back the standard USB capacity https://quantrimang.com/huong-dan-khoi-phuc-dung-luong-usb-bi-mat-137804





=> That's why I use it Rufus instead of BalenaEtcher. But if Rufus can't then accept it.





Good luck.
