My device is bricked with no fastboot. The only thing working is edl. But xiaomi has put an edl authentication for flashing. The authentication is put into prog_emmc_firehose6150_ddr.elf.
Is there anyone has the firehose programming patch for redmi note 8?

up until now there's no patched firehose file for redmi note 8. You need to visit the service center as only they have authorized account to flash via edl mode.

There is one but I don't know if it'll work. I can share it here if you want but can't guarantee anything. I also don't know whose work is it

Nice job uploading the first time
although the name of the file sounds right according to sd665 qualcomm processor but the result in flashing failed with this message:
"SAHARA_NAK_INVALID_DEST_ADDR"

as with the result it doesn't seem to be a valid programmer file or it may not work on redmi note 8.
nevertheless thanks for your help.

Same here, no fastboot, MiFlash recognizes it but in middle of processing asks for an Authorized Account,
Is it possible by using test point method bypass it?
Did you mange to unbrick your device?
Do you know how much it will cost by XIaomi Service Center to unbrick the phone?

my device went to test point automatically because its whole partitions including fastboot, twrp, system and ... were deleted so it is identified in the windows as "EDL 9008". although it was in EDL mode, i did whatever to fix it during 3-4 month but useless.
i also tried xiaomi service center but they didn't help me. So i decided to pay a guy who had an authorized account, he fixed it for me remotely.

Did you even try S-Unlock website? It claims that provide you an authorized account for 35$.

    what qpst version u use?
    can you tell step by step, because i always get sahara fail, have try different port no luck. thanks
    if you still stuck, this is what i did,
    i downloaded the fastboot rom that i want to flash
    then i opened the device back cover and located the pin for the edl mode and then i unplugged the battary
    so after this i install qpst v2.7.480 and then go to the folder of installation and locate qfil, and if you have used another qfil before this you need to renter the information even if it is entered it solved my problem, and you will need the QDLoaderHS_USB_Driver
    and then do as this

    before this step make sure you have replaced the file with the one in the extracted rom.
    and then plug your phone and short the two pins using a wire or anything else which will make your device enter edl mode
    and then hit the download button and hopefully the download will start, after all this you should have a working phone.

    FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL OF YOU HERE

    my redmi note 8 ginkgo come back from the dead after 10 hours phone dead and wandering thru internet and many forum ( english only )

    iam on windows 10 64 bit,, using usb 2.0 port, original xiaomi usb cable
    at this point any flashing guide i already do, nothing work, except i have authorize account, which i dont have.

    edit : My board number is 1.29

    here is exactly what iam doing

    1.download latest QPST from here
    (at the time, iam using Version v2.7.480

    2.install and finish it.

    3.iam using this rom
    ginkgo_global_images_V11.0.12.0.PCOMIXM_20201119.0000.00_9.0_global
    from here :


    4. download the prog_emmc_firehorse from here
    this one is the one posted by RealYoti from 2nd page.

    ok, from here, all the file necessary is ready

    5. copy / move the prog_emmc_firehorse that you download to the FASTBOOT ROM location, put inside "images" folder, replace the original.


    6. now the Phone , remove back cover, remove the battery connector, sort test point to edl mode

    7. connect the device until it recognized by the PC as 9008 ( if hard to recognize, press power button about 10 second and repeat shorting the test poin pin )

    8. now, open the QFIL.exe,in my case :
    C/Program Files(x86)/Qualcomm/QPST/bin/

    CONFIGURATION

    a. Select Build Type : Flat Build
    b. Select Programmer : ( Locate to prog_emmc_firehorse inside the firmware images folder )
    c. LoadXML : RawProgram > rawprogram0.xml // Patch > patch0.xml
    d. look at top right, SelectPort, make sure its detected ( just to make sure its connected and detected )

    now everything set, hit that Blue Download button, if the blue bar is loading, then everything is working and flashing, just wait until it finish and says success.
    after success, just remove the usb, put back the battery port, and hold power, your phone should back alive.

    sorry if there is misspell and miswrite.
    i hope someone find this usefull, thank you again for everyone here.
