    Please reply

    • Bro it shows that you have not enable USB Debugging at the time of rooting!

    • There is no solution of removingthis sign because it’s the proof that you have void your phone’s warranty.

Shuld i reset my phone to default factory setting and then again root it or whatever you say??
