thanks again drakey for mirrors and evil for the awesome work. After a night of no sleep i'm nearly back to stock. However i'm stuck on step 10 (installing root). I extracted the files to root of internal memory ( 2 files - one is a folder called "1" and other is the .sh file) and when i reboot supersu is not installing and i'm not obtaining root. Any suggestions? FWIW i couldn't get heimdall for the life of me to install (possible driver issue?) but i was able to extract designgears tar mi9 image and successfully odin'ed that and after odining the partitions and applying csc file from external all is well. Just need root to finish. Also if anyone else gets stuck or has similar situation don't take the ota update since you will bootloop again and have to start all over (i couldn't resist- was so frustrated!! thanks again
Looks like my heimdall dont work anymore. What do you mean of extracted mi9 image and flashed it. Please explain because i might have to do the same thing.
