If you are familiar with custom ROM or polishing your phone, chances are you have tried polishing your Xiaomi / Redmi / POCO phone. Flashing Xiaomi phones used to be an easy and fast process, but now, things have changed. Your phone needs an unlocked bootloader to flash. But what if the bootloader is locked and you accidentally bricked your phone hard and got stuck on this screen? Today I will share a way to fix your hard brick Xiaomi phone.
There’s a layer of protection that needs to be unlocked to change or edit your phone’s software. Every phone has this layer of security, in the case of Android, it is called boot loader, while in the case of iPhone it is called iBoot. The boot loader has two levels, primary and secondary.
The primary bootloader hardware is locked and can only be accessed after opening the body of the phone. Only an authorized technician can unlock it (so it is best not to play with it unless you are the right person to do it.) While the secondary boot loader software is locked, it can be unlocked after your phone company allows it to be unlocked.
How to Fix Bricked or Hard Bricked Phones Easily
- Make sure you unlock the bootloader of your phone.
- Setup the ADB and Fastboot drivers on your Windows PC.
- Download Xiaomi MI Flashtool here and install it on your Desktop.
- And last, make sure that your phone’s battery is 70% charged.
