Using Mi PC Suite to Unbrick
Step 1 – On your computer, launch Mi PC Suite tool up.
Step 2 – Connect your phone to your computer using its USB cable. Wait for the tool to recognize your device and wait till it connects to your phone successfully.

Step 3 – Once connected, you then have to logging to your Mi Account through the Mi PC Suite.
Step 4 – Mi PC Suite will then also detect if your phone is in bootloop or in bricked condition. A popup with instruction will be displayed. Now you can simply follow on-screen information to put your Redmi Note 3 into Fastboot mode.
Step 5 – Once your phone has been in Fastboot state, Mi PC Suite will then try to find suitable ROM for your bricked device and display available options whether Stable or Beta MIUI ROM. Just pick one of it (Stable is recommended) then click the Flash Device button.
Step 6 – Mi PC Suite will then connect to official MIUI server and downloads the MIUI ROM package into your computer. Make sure you have pretty stable and fast Internet connection.
Step 7 – Once the download process has completed, the tool will automatically flash the ROM onto your phone. As a result, the system on your phone has been reset and just like a brand new phone. You can then, if you want it to, install Google Play Store on it.
