installed all the drivers (except smsung) even with pnputil

i downloaded this blackthund3r_A500_APX_Flash_Tool_v0.4.1 and the thor173skrilax08.a500apx file and tried but the tool said no apx-mode devices are connected

nothing happens - is there any noob manual that i can follow?

hold the reset button (pinhole) in and hold start button on
after 3-4 secs release power button then the reset button a few secs after that
tab should now be in apx mode
