    1. I think You are facing this issue due to the one of the three Issues.
      1) You are Not doing step 7 & 8 correctly.
      2) Your Smartphone's nvram is corrupted due to downgrad process or formating process .
      3) You Flashed a wrong Flash file(other phone's Flash file).

      I will suggest you 2 easy way or trick but do it on your own risk we will not be responsible for any damage.

      First Make a complete backup of your phone.and then
      1)First Follow Method 1 and Then Follow method 2 from the post.
      2)Restore Backuped Rom or Flash Stock Flash File.and then Follow Method 1 and Then Follow method 2 from the post.

      in 2nd way we are first saving the data temporary and then we are making it permanent.and it will be also easy for you.
