How to flash or download the Mobicel Onyx firmware or ROM

Solved 1 Answers 4805 Views Mobicel Onyx
It is just hanging on the boot logo and will proceed not further. I have tried hard resetting but no go. How do I re-flash the firmware afresh. I expect this should be able to resolve the issue if it is indeed a firmware issue.
