    1. hi,
      flashing will take time 5-6 minutes to finish, just wait more time don't disconnect your phone first be patience. if it already 30 minutes then regretfully you must disconnect your phone and check if it can recognize by your pc. check the usb cable too, don't until it plug off or remove

    1. MT65XX Preloader Vcom Driver this need to be extract, it zip file. so extract on your computer and when you need to install USB VCOM point it to file on the extracted folder

      Delete
    2. I turned off the phone and removed the SIM, but when I plugged the USB in, it connects for 2-3 seconds then the phone boots into charging mode and it disconnects. How do I solve this?

    3. That mean your usb vcom driver not installed completely, try to install it again. Open device manager while you connect your phone. Look at com&port at device manager, it will show new hardware for 2-3 seconds before disappear. Right click on it before disappear and point to usb vcom extracted folder
