How to flash any ROM on Xiaomi Phones with a locked bootloader

How to flash any ROM on Xiaomi Phones with a locked bootloader &-8211; this Article or News was published on this date:2019-05-17 09:26:24 kindly share it with friends if you find it helpful

I just bought some Xiaomi Redmi 3s prime phone from china and it all came with MIUI 7 and china ROM without Google Play store so i needed to flash them with a Global ROM using latest flash ROM with MIUI 8, this tutorial will how ever show you how to Flash any ROM on Xiaomi phones with a locked bootloader.

If all you need is just the latest MIUI 8 then you dont have to do all this process, just connect your device to a WIFI network and do an OTA update from MIUI 7 to 8 but if you will like to change your ROM (from any ROM to another)  and your still have a locked bootloader then this is the easiest method to flash any ROM on xiaomi phones with locked bootloader.

Please be noted I will not take any responsibility for anything that goes wrong even though i have used this method to flash 3 different xiaomi phones on different ROMs.
Important: – Before flashing it is advised to make sure your phone battery is charged

This Method will work with every ROM, Upgrade/Downgrade, Locked Bootloader/Unlocked Bootloader.

Things you will need

  1. Qualcomm Driver (download and install)
  2. Mi Flash Tool – Beta (download and install)
  3. Minimal ADB and Fastboot (download and install it, if you have a problem installing look here)
  4. Fastboot ROM (download the Flash ROM as appropriate and unzip it)

If you have downloaded the above tools and installed 1, 2 and 3 then you can continue the process

Enter Fastboot mode

Turn off your xiaomi device, then to put your xiaomi phone into fastboot mode:  hold the volume down and power button together till you get a page like this

xiaomi fastboot mode

Then connect your Xiaomi device to your computer

Enter EDL mode from fastboot mode

xiaomi fastboot mode

Now you need to enter EDL mode from fastboot mode, launch Minimal ADB and Fastboot Tool that you have downloaded and installed then type in the command fastboot oem edl then press enter. If you get a message “OKAY” and a blank black screen on your xiaomi device then you are now in EDL mode and ready to flash any ROM on Xiaomi Phones.

Flashing ROM on Xiaomi Phone

xiaomi fastboot mode
Now launch MiFlashTool (beta) you have downloaded and installed above, tick the clean all option at the bottom then click the select option at the top of the Flash tool to select the Flash ROM’s folder you have download and extracted.

Note: make sure the its a direct folder containing the files (see above and below image)

xiaomi fastboot mode

folder directory looks like this: C:UsersWilsonDownloadsland_global_images_V8.0.3.0.MALMIDG_20160805.0000.29_6.0_global_588e5c60af

The folder that contains the files is directly inside the download folder, you can copy it to the destop or any other place.

Now click refresh if everything goes well you will get the ROM loaded on the tool then you can now click flash.


If you get an error that say can not read from port

This to try out (in my own case i just changed USB port to another)

  1. change the USB port which you using in connecting the xiaomi phone to your computer.
  2. disable your antivirus
  3. use another computer

if all goes well it should stall flashing the ROM onto your xiaomi device and should display a success message after a while.

After a successful flash of the ROM into the xiaomi phone, just hold the power button down for a while to boot the phone up again into the new ROM.

This are the simple steps to follow in other to flash any ROM on Xiaomi Phones.

How to check if your Xiaomi Phone is Fake

How to check if your Xiaomi Phone is Fake &-8211; this Article or News was published on this date:2019-05-17 09:25:30 kindly share it with friends if you find it helpful

There are reports of fake Xiaomi phones in the market, if you have a xiaomi phone, you can easily check if your xiaomi phone is fake or original in two easy steps.

Lei Jun is a Chinese entrepreneur who founded Xiaomi Inc. In 2014 called fake goods, “a social cancer, a serious damage to the image of the country and consumer confidence,” and said it was time to support efforts to get rid of them.

Xiaomi Inc has since developed an application called ‘MI Verification app’ to help MI users spot fake xiaomi phones, so its customers can easily identify a fake and genuine xiaomi phone.

Steps in checking if a Xiaomi Phone is fake or Genuine

  1. Download and install Mi Verification App from Play Store after installation tap on the Mi Verification app and enabled performance mode and a page to scan a QR code will come up.
  2. Now Open  on another phone or computer and scan the QR Code on that page with the app on your phone after the verification process is completed you will be able to view the details on your phone and identify if its fake or original.

Share this with other MI fans and make sure to always buy your phones from reputable stores.
