How to Flash Nokia Lumia Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile Phone

This tutorial is specifically for Build 14267 Back to Build 10586 but can be applied to all Nokia Lumia Microsoft Windows Phone. Following its launch, many who have upgraded their Windows 10 devices to Windows 10 Mobile build 14267 from an earlier build 10586 are having some issues but the most commonest of these issues is malfunctioning USB port which makes the phone unable to charge as soon as Windows is fully booted on the device.
As it is unbearable to use such phone as smart as Windows 10 phones without charging it due to malfunctioning USB port, you might wonder how to revert the upgrade so that the malfunctioning USB port may be corrected without getting the USB port itself in a working/functioning condition.
Well, we're able to pool it out. You can actually flash the device back to its earlier build with everything perfectly working and below here, I have the step by step guides.

NOTE: following this same guide, you can flash any Stock Firmware on any Windows phone.
