Fastboot MIUI Flashing: Fix Bootloop, Hardbrick, Softbrick

The best solution to fix Xiaomi device error: Bootloop, Hardbrick, and Softbrick is ROM Flashing via Fastboot mode and here’s how to do it correctly. I believe many of you ever felt confused and panic when facing with such kind of problems. Bootloop is an error which you can’t successfully boot your smartphone and being stuck in Mi or Android logo. The Bootloop error usually happens when a user does not correctly flash ROM to his/her phone during MIUI update. For example when you want to update MIUI ROM via TWRP or Mi Recovery. But however there are many other factors other than I mentioned can cause Android bootloop error.

This time I’ll share a small trick for you on how to dealing with bootloop, hardbrick, and softbrick error on any Xiaomi devices including the most popular Redmi 2, Redmi Note 2, Redmi Note 4G (dual SIM), Mi 4, and Mi 4i. Please remember that the guide you read here is not limited to Xiaomi devices I mentioned before but it can be applied to any (most of) Xiaomi devices because the basic is simple: bootloop, hardbrick, and softbrick error can be fixed by flashing ROM through Fastboot mode and using Fastboot-only MIUI ROM.

Also, the purpose of this guide is not limited to fix error on your smartphone but you can also use this guide just for ROM flashing purpose either to update your phone to latest MIUI version or to root the Android OS on your Mi phone. Enough the chit chat and let’s start the tutorial after the jump below.

p.s: Some recent devices need to have unlocked bootloader before being able to flash Fastboot ROM.

How to Flash MIUI ROM via Fastboot Mode

Step 1Download Mi PC Suite tool then install it on your Windows-based computer (PC/laptop).

Step 2Download Mi Flash tool then install it on your computer. I’ve included the tutorial how to install it right in the same page where you download it.

Step 3 – Download Fastboot ROM package corresponding to your Mi device model, make sure you grabbed the correct package for your phone. The download links are below which you can grab the latest version of MIUI Fastboot-version ROM. If you need older version then Google is your friend.

MIUI Fastboot ROM Downloads

MIUI 7.1 Global Stable ROM Fastboot file here. Or, download latest version below (there’s a chance you’ll get the MIUI 8 version instead):

– do not forget to check if the ROM file suffix is “.tgz” and if it is “.gz“, please rename it to “.tgz
– the file size is quite large so you better use your favorite download manager.

Step 4 – Now you need to extract the newly downloaded MIUI Fastboot ROM package .tgz file using WinRAR. Make sure you extract its content to root of your computer’s drive and do not extract it inside a folder. That’s to make sure the files inside the content can be easily accessible later. For example, extrac it to drive D:\ or drive E:\ (drive C:\ is for Windows system, so you better not extract it there).

Once extracted, you’ll then get a folder named like this (example Global version):


or this for Chinese version:


Step 5 – Launch up MiFlash.exe to open Mi Flash tool you’ve downloaded earlier in Step 2. The file is usually located at:

C:\Program Files\Xiaomi\MiPhone

or if in x64 machine it is located at:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Xiaomi\MiPhone

Right-click on it and choose Run as Administrator:

run miflash tool

Step 6 – Click the Browse button and look for the location of where you’ve extracted the MIUI Fastboot ROM file, choose folder images then hit OK button.

flash fastboot miui rom file

Step 7 – It will then look like below. Now click on the little arrow next to the Browse button (see picture) then click Advanced.

advanced menu miflash tool

Step 8 – A dialog box will open. Now you have to click the Browse button in the Fastboot Script. Browse to the location you’ve extracted the MIUI ROM Fastboot file again and select the flash_all.bat file following by clicking the OK button. For your information, this script will wipe all your phone’s files including all of your data and it will do a clean install. Also, do not and never alter / change any other settings, just leave it as it is.

mi flash tool clean miui rom install

flash all bat script rom flashing

Step 9 – Next, you’ll need to connect your Xiaomi device / phone to computer. But first, you have to make it entering Fastboot mode. Achieving that is easy, simply grab your phone and press the Volume down (-) button and Power button all together at the same time. Hold your pressing until your phone restarting and entering Fastboot mode. You are doing that successfully if you’ve seen the Fastboot logo on your phone’s screen:

fastboot mode logo

Step 10 – Now connect your phone which is in Fastboot mode to the computer using its USB cable.

Step 11 – Back to the MiFlash tool you’ve setup earlier. Click the Refresh button and the tool will detect your phone.

refresh miui flash tool

Step 12 – Once the MiFlash tool can detect your phone, click the Flash button to start flashing the MIUI ROM Fastboot file to your phone.

flashing miui fastboot rom to phone

Make sure you see message saying “The operation completed successfully. (0x00000000;)” once it done:

miui fastboot rom flashed success

Step 13 – Ok so now you’ve flashed the MIUI ROM and now your phone will restart. At this point you can disconnect your phone from computer and wait till your phone reboot and restart completely. Just keep in mind that initial booting process may take long time so do not panic and just wait till it’s fully boot.

Voila! your phone is now turned on and booted into the newly installed MIUI ROM. Installing MIUI via Fastboot is wiping all your phone’s data so it will be like a brand new phone. Hence you have to setup your phone from the basic, just take it as a new phone.

Congratulation and enjoy using your phone with brand new MIUI system.

p.p.s: If you flashed MIUI Stable China build then most likely you don’t have Play Store installed.

    u cant flash with bootloader locked

    • kvdv

      Any suggestion as to how to get around this issue?
      I’m stuck in a bootloop on a Xiaomi Redmi 3 device with a locked bootloader.

      • farieznur

        You can try following this tutorial which is intended for RN3. You can try the steps but use Fastboot ROM for Redmi 3 instead. However, I couldn’t say it will work but there’s possibility that it works. And, proceed with your own risk.

        • kvdv

          Hi, I finally managed to flash via MiFlash, it’s VERY dependent on the correct qualcomm drivers being installed though 😉
          Thanks alot for your tutorial and quick response.

          • farieznur

            Nice! Thanks for the tip. I hope it also helps other.

          • Clarke

            Hi, are you able to help me – I have the same issue – what extra steps did you do? many thanks

          • kvdv

            2 problems I had to solve in my situation (redmi 3):
            – My windows already had some other drivers that were used by default for the phone when in download mode, I had to replace those with the provided qualcomm drivers (use device manager to find out if you’ve got it right).
            – The “adb/fastboot reboot edl” command did not work for me, instead I had to hold power on and volume up together to get booted into some chinese recovery menu, and then select the “download” option and connect my phone to the computer via usb.

            That enabled me to find my device in the Mi Flash tool, and got rid of the errors when flashing via that same tool.

            Hope that helps you Clarke.

          • Clarke

            many thanks kvdv. I am a bit of a tech newbie but will give it a go

  • Gavin Mole

        • farieznur

          Is your phone’s bootloader unlocked? Official or unofficial unlock?

          • M Venki Masenko

            same problem… i unlocked it unofficially and rooted and installed cm 12.1…… unspecified error (0x80004005: FAILED(remote:device is locked. cannot flash image)….. pls help me out

    hai fariez…may i ask u…i’m totally stuck at the mi logo…when i press (- )and power button..only mi logo appeared…it cant go on…and my pc cant recognize my fon…do u have any tips to solve this..or maybe my fon already total bricked??and cant be repaired???

    • Zasri

      yeah my phone have the same problem with you and i can’t do anything

    • farieznur

      What is your phone? Try uninstalling ADB drivers and reinstalling it again. As long as it’s not a hardbrick (hardware failure) then it should be repairable.

  • Rakesh Patel

    I had my boot loader locked and tried flashing a new rom. the flashing failed with a message unspecified error and phone stuck in boot loop.

    I can open the fast boot mode but again flashing fails with the same message unspecified error. can you help ??

  • Mike

    I’m trying to fix my Mi Note’s boot loop problem. I can get into Mi Recovery and Fastboot’s page fine, but the phone reboots in about 5-10 seconds regardless what page I get into, and the MiFlash fails because the phone wasn’t on in Fastboot mode long enough.

    Any solutions?

    • Niranjan

      hai Mike. got same problem on MI3 MIUI 7.1 . If you have fixed it , could you please let me know.

  • Ilan Y

    does it deleting anything from the phone? (sd card)?

  • Анон Аноним

    MiFlash says Uknown error (0x80004005: error: cannot load ‘D:Xiaomi’: No error)
    What should I do?

  • Sidharths

    MiFlash was not detecting my device. I have tried many things to get it detected. Finally getting the driver called Marshall London Bootloader Interface solved the problem. Thought it might be helpful.

    • farieznur

      Thanks for the tip. Anyway yes, in most cases reinstalling ADB USB Drivers may solve “device not detected” issue.

  • Momoka Nishina

    My problem is screen not showing after hardbrick..
    Led, home button is ok, vibrate when i touch..
    On+Volume – Also vibrate but screen still blank..

  • Thayveen Yoga Giriraj

    Hey bro, im stuck in a boot loop. I downloaded a root called king root. Later i wrongly did something to the internal files i guess. now the phone is stuck to the logo. I exactly followed the steps but doesn’t seem to detect it. Please help 🙁

    • Thayveen Yoga Giriraj

      i am using a Redmi Note 3

      • farieznur

        Redmi Note 3 needs its unlocked unlocked otherwise you could not just flash stock MIUI (or any other ROM) through Fastboot. There is a workaround though, but using unofficial unlock method might be too risky, but you can still try if you want. Just browse around in the “Guide” section in our blog

  • Pi Wi

    Hello, i’m getting an issue on my MI4C, i tried several rom and still getting the same issue on all of them ( tried to do a flash with MIFLASH / adb side load ). The issue is : i’m getting random app crash and soft reboot… i’m getting stuck with this error since 3 week.. is my phone dead?

  • DeEZy

    Hi I have a problem… mine ReNo3SD is ok till the tutorial end… it writes the operaton completed successfully.(0x00000000 or whatever but it does not reboot. and when i want to reboot it manually it just show me the MI logo for like half second.. please help.. this phone isnt meant for me but for my friend… he will kill me if i just tell him its bricked

    • farieznur

      has its bootloader been unlocked?

      Have you tried this one

      • DeEZy

        I fixed it… After 8 hours of googling and trying out different ways…

        • DeEZy

          I think that I’ll just w8 for the official unlock now

        • farieznur

          great! would you mind to share the way how you managed to fix it? 🙂

          • DeEZy

   this was the one to fix it for me.. After trying like 7 different tutorials on this site how to fix it.. My original problem was that MI logo showed for like half of a second then shut off and then the logo showed second time, vibrated and shut off again.. So I did this method like 4 times cuz It didn’t want to recognize my phone. After I done it the problem remained the same that I couldn’t boot but I was holding and pressing and holding like crazy volume + and it miraculously booted.

      I had the same situation, the phone was recognized after doing this procedure:

      And then, press the Volume down (-) button, Volume up (+) and Power button together at the same all time until a little sound was heard in tthe computer and finally was recognized.

      1. Open your device manager
      2. Go to view menu (above), click on Show Hidden Devices
      3. Find your ADB driver, right click, uninstall, check Delete driver (make sure all related ADB devices are uninstalled)
      4. plug in your device
      5. reinstall your driver

  • Manmohan Garg

    Thanks very much for the guide. However one more thing I would like to add that at starting of flash I was getting some error and was not going through. After that I tried to select “Flash all except storage” option. Now flashing was done successfully and phone restarted. 🙂

    Good procedure, but what about hardbrick when you can’t enter fastboot?
    In this case the procedure useless.

    • Run Adb On Your PC Mac Linux Whatever You Have

      Connect Your Phone with PC via USB

      Then Type “adb oem edl” “without quotes” in adb terminal (cmd)

      Now open Mi Flashtool and refresh and check “Clean All” option And Flash Fastboot ROM with “Flash all.bat” option

        i mistakenly rebooted my phone while installing twrp and press reboot even if it was displaying reboot without os. and then my redmi 4 is stuck in bootloop..all it does is shows mi logo .. bootloader is unlocked.. but it doesnt reboot to recovery.. how can i fix this? can fastboot rom fix this or my device is permanently dead .. plz answer ..

        • You can flash recovery again using PC just reboot your device into boot mode and connect your device to PC and run Fastboot And Write in cmd “fastboot flash recovery recovery.img(write whatever your recovery filename is)” once done reboot recovery.

    My MI4I is hard bricked. Just black screen on my phone. It is detected by miflash tool. But it is not flashing anything on phone. It is showing success on MiFlash tool but unable to boot phone. I have observed few error logs in MiFlash tool.

    I have used QFIL to flash rom. But no success.
    It failed to switch to emergency download mode QPST. I have tried volume + and power button combination to take it in emergency download mode. But nothing appear on phone screen.

    Whenever I connect my phone with computer. It add 6 local disks to my computer. When I tried to format those disks. It fails to format those.

    It all started with encryption failed error.
    After that I tried to flash rom using MiFlash tool. But no success.
    Then I tried fastboot method. But no Success
    I was unable to copy rom using recovery mode. I think usb debugging was not disabled.
    I have seen mount failure in recovery mode.
    The I tried UnzipMe2. I executed format.bat from that and after that my Phone is completely dead. After that my device name change to a long name (something like this usbstor#disk&ven_qualcomm&prod_mmc_storage&rev_1.00#7&5313…), as I have observed in MiFlash tool.
    Then I tried QFIL and I got “failed to switch to emergency download mode” error.

    Please help to unbrick my MI4I.

    Procedure is nicer explained but my problem is I am not able to reach fastboot or recovery which is twrp. Actually I was trying to change the booting splash screen. But now when I try any key combination I can not reach fastboot or TWRP. But pressing any key combination gives flash of static screen. Any help will be appreciated.
