Hi,

The Xiaomi Mi A3 is an Android One phone, is an authorized Xiaomi account necessary to flash the official ROM from EDL mode when the bootloader is locked?

The Mi A1 and A2 / Lite phones also Android One, don't require an authorized account in the same case, what's the difference with the Mi A3, perhaps the elf programmer file?

My phone went into bootloop without any hacking/modding. I ended up EDL but whenever I flash I get a unauthorized from the flash tool.

Same thing happened to me, you need an authorized Mi account to flash in EDL mode. I had to connect remotely to someone who had an authorized Mi account to unbrick it.

Hi, I am facing similar issue as my phone is also in the fastboot mode.
Xiaomi is telling to contact their service center but in the current scenario, this is not possible.
Can you suggest how to get some OS installed so that my phone is unbricked.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.
The problem is, i had never enable USB debugging. So no tool seems to be working.
The issue occured when i received an OTA update for Android 10 and my phone went into restart mode.
There it got stuck on the fastboot screen.
I dont know if this occured due to it having being connected to charger at that point of time.
Anyways, is there any alternate option considering the USB debugging is not enabled and neither is the bootloader unlocked.
