Troubleshooting hints if errors occurred while flashing. 

1.  Sometimes after flashing  BOOT FILES, serial port error may occur.  
                                                  just unplug/plug your Wave to another USB port, and restart  MULTILOADER (et restart the flash without the boot files, because they've already been flashed).




2. Shutdown while in progress => reason is battery low level => charge it then try once more


3. Phone can't go pass SIM loading in booting progress => may be by CSC was not config, may be by flashing improper (ex. choosing wrong file wrong places)


4. Some times phone can be login without SIM (while with SIM impossible) if wrong CSC.
