Xiaomi Mi Pad 5
Hi guys,

i want to flash my MiPad 5 from chinese to global Rom.

I already installed the Bootloader Unlock Tool and waited one week.

Now the bootloader is unlocked and i downloaded "Xiaomi Pad 5 Global MIUI V12.5.4.0.RKXMIXM Update". There are two different Download Versions, one for Recovery and one for fastboot. Which one is correct and usable without root?

Now i'm Stuck in the Process of Downloading TWRP because I can't find a specific version for my MiPad 5. Is there anybody who can give me a step by step Guide what to do now?

Thank you

I bricked it....


Error occurred while flashing the Global ROM.

After that it went directly into fastboot. Can't turn it off right now.
At the moment i am trying to install twrp with help of minimal adb and fastboot. getting errors now...

Tried an Intel and a AMD Computer. Tried CN Rom and Global ROM. Endless flashing, no result. Green loading bar is completed, saying mismatching and flashing... Now its stuck in Fastboot Mode.

can anybody help?

Could maybe try this:

Don't have any experience with it personally, but worth a try

TWRP is not required to flash the global ROM.
Just specify the unzipped global ROM as the working directory of MiFlash.

Mi Pad 5 didn't have recovery partition, since it use A/B structure. You must execute fastboot boot recovery.img and after that install recovery to RAMdisk.

Whered you even get twrp? Had an error while flashing from cn to global as well about sparse super failed. Then tried reflashing but i got the same error as you had and all i did was reboot the tablet in fastboot while it was still in fastboot and after that it flashed successfully even though it threw out am error flash is not done but the tablet rebooted hy itself and then booted up after a minute or two. Almost gave me a heart attack while i was at it



Edit: seems you flashed it successfully already thats good. Fastboot can be clunky on ryzen sometimes, i remeber back on mi a2 had to use a hub instead of directly connecting my phone to my ryzen pc for fastboot to work properly and not get stuck while flashing. But now i can connect directly after switching to a b450motherboard, was using a b350 before

I am trying to use the Mi Flash tool and when I open it, it tells me to install Drivers, but the screen just hangs there when I press Continue.
I also get an error saying a specific log folder is not present.

I also am trying to install global rom on china model. Please help!

Don't know if I need to create a new thread. After the unlocking, I tried to change the region from RU to CN and got the same problem after a "successful" update as chrwo with "Mismatching image and device" error and fastboot mode. Then I tried to flash global version and the device error is gone but I still have the fastboot mode. Recovery from MiToolv2 doesn't help either, after successful recovery tablet still goes only to fastboot.

Got it working after flashing with miflash on the intel PC. I used a USB port on the motherboard this time.
So maybe there is really a problem with Ryzen.
