There is only MI logo nothing else.



lets assume it a 5X device. should i foloow that instructions? but how do i get out of the state im in now?
Stranger ... Very stranger ...

Anyway ...
If it would be a 5X the rom Is completely different because it use a MIUI and not Android One (like Mi A1 does) ...

The MIUi forMi 5X are stored here:
http://www.miui.com/getrom.php?r=332&m=yes&app=false

Are you sure that pushing pwr button a long does not switch off ?
In this moment I don't know how exit from this state that looks as a softbrick very probably because we have used a ROM addressed to Mi A1 on 5X ... :(

Very well !!
So it is confirmed that you have a 5X fake because it has on board the firmware of Mi A1
Keep me informed ... If you can/want
Ciao and good luck ;)

INfact I never see your attached pictures ... not only this one
Is the device recognized into EDL mode by MiFlash sw ??
I mean ... is the COM port activated correctly ?

The errore code is related to MiFlash sw and it is fixed usually with the tips/trick reported above but ...
I wish you success ;)

Well done
I have not experience about this kind of issue
As you understand ... You have bought a Chinese product not addressed to international marked so it is normal this situation
But probably here on XDa or on other forum you can find right procedure

And finally ... If I helped you please notify this clicking thank you on my posts above

Ciao
Paolo

PS
Where do you live in Slovakia ?? I will go perhaps to Poprad for work

    Team Win Recovery Project 3.x, or twrp3 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. Its a fully touch driven user interface no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

    whats working?



    • [*]All paritions are mounting
      [*] Can change Slot A/ Slot B on twrp its self
      [*]Everything as usual.. (Backup/restore)
      [*]recovery booting after rebooting to system also :)
      [*]sdcard working
      [*] USB-OTG working
      [*] Add system_image mount point to flash system images
      [*] Add update_engine_sideload

    Instructions:
    Steps:
    • Download required files from downloads
    • Unlock your bootloader( u must be unrooted)
    • Reboot to bootloader
    • fastboot boot recovery-xx.img
    • Boot into Recovery
    • Change Partition slot using twrp[Reboot--> Change_Slot]

    • Success

    Workaround: As pixel devices come up with A/B partition, its quite similar to our device and we use of them to get root access.
