    When I download the firmware package using iMyfone D-Back, it always cuts off the connection with my iPhone, what should I do?

    • Hi Sergio, have you tried another good cable? I guess the disconnection is caused by unstable cable.
      And if you still cannot download the firmware package, you can email our customer support team:support@imyfone.com and they will help.
