Now finally connect your phone to your PC via USB cable and wait for your PC to read the phone. If it’s done, type this command to your cmd window to make sure your phone already connected:
A random strings will show up if your phone is connected, if that happen then you can continue to type this command :

Look at cmd screen, if Device unlocked: true then it’s mean your bootloader is already unlocked. While if the result shows false, then your bootloader is still locked for now and you need to unlock it to finally begin the flashing process.
