After it completes you will again land up in Recovery Mode so choose ”++++Go Back++++” then “Reboot system now” option to reboot the phone.
In case the device gets in the boot loop mode then you ought to re apply the firmware updation procedure again from the beginning. Thus you can easily update the latest firmware of De Sensed-View Custom ROM in your HTC Flyer by following the steps mentioned above carefully.
