  1. When I select the JET MOD for installation, a error occur, hat to do?

  2. has this method been tested???
    coz the screenshot posted is of a samsung phone ………!!!!

    • Yes, this method has been tested.
      The screenshot which is of Samsung is just to show people as to how they can navigate in settings to enable “USB debugging” and this is a standard image which we use. It has nothing to do with which Phone model you’re using. It remains same for all users.
