what is the difference between using firmware upgrade n download..?coz download is not working 4 me..

both options are use to update ROM, but if you use "Downlaod Only" it will format your phone and install ROM.
and for "Firmware-> upgrade" it will only format system partition and then install the ROM.

download not working, can you tell me what error number ? if 8038 then maybe you need to try newer version of sp flash tool version 5 http://adf.ly/qte3K

hi,
the problem because shutdown when happen can only be fix by re flashing with flash tool, and the problem flash tool remaining at 0% is because you not install usb vcom driver completely to fix with the flash tool just make sure you install usb vcom driver.
