  1. Hi! This will erase all my phone data?

    There are some games data in my phone that I would like to keep.

    Waiting a reply.

    • You’r data will not lose but there are chances that you may loose data if phone stucks on boot screen after flashing. So, for safety, backup your data. Copy the android folder in phone storage to your pc. All apps and games data is in this folder.
