Do not worry about that code. It is a signature code :)
so we must ignore that yellow sign next to driver name n code 10 ? if yes then how i will b able to flash my mobicell retro coz its not being read on sp flash. i did download from a link provided by u.

Method 1 has no issues while and yes you can ignore error code 10 under Method 2 provided you disabled Signature verification or if you have a Win 32 bit version.
