Ok, here is step by step.
My friend gave me Chinese note 8 pro, and asked to make it global. I unlocked it, everything was OK. Tried to flash it, like dozens of xiaomi before, and got a brick on my hands.
Fastboot was dead. Phone was dead to. Led light was working when connected to PC tho. Heres what I did: ...
Ok, I need some explanations here! When I connect the phone with USB to the PC the led turns on. Then if I press pwr + vol+ I can hear windows detecting the phone and the sound of disconnecting after 5 seconds. Phone is not connected with regular Mi Flash.
When I press MTK flash, SP Flash tool opens. I then select the scatter file from the downloaded rom folder and I am stuck on processing. I dont have the phone connected right now, while it is "processing".
Also, did you use an authentication file?
What am I missing?
I found an authentication file. The "processing" of the scatter file succeeds after a long time (one needs to be patient here). I press "Download" and then I connect the phone. The led turns on.
-If I press pwr + vol- the led changes but the PC doesn't "feel" anything.
-If I press pwr + vol+ the PC detects the phone. But I get: "ERROR: STATUS_BROM_CMD_FAIL" on SP Flash Tool.
