I'm trying to flash my Micromax Canvas A1 (AQ4501). I'm following this guide. As per the instruction, when I click on download I should connect my phone. Now, my device gets detected by Windows (see the image below).

Device gets connected

But the download is not starting. What am I missing here?

After some digging up I found out that I had not unlocked the OEM.

  1. Pressed and hold Power + Volume Up
  2. Choosen Fastboot on the menu
  3. On fastboot command line ran unlock.bat and then fastboot oem unlock
  4. Selected yes on the device
  5. Disconnected the device.
  6. Started SP tool
  7. Connected the device, flashing starts and completes.
