I have arrived at the point where ifelixit should restart the phone in the installed recovery, but nothing happens.
I followed the steps carefully.
How could I proceed? Thank you

Hi Stefano, we are dealing with those orders with shipping on May 7th. An excessively optimistic date has been proposed for a bug but even if with a little delay the orders will be honored. If you are free to request cancellation and receive a refund, but if you are not in a hurry I suggest you wait as the price was still very good.
