    1. You did not specify the files for some of the partitions so the flash cannot proceed. Each partition must show where is the file to flash that partition, or you have to UNCHECK the box for that partition.

    1. Note that there are 2 types of Tecno P9 (MT6589 and MT6582)
      SO the ROM you are using is not the one for you device.
      Use the matching ROM for ur device
