This tool can help you to unbrick the Red Magic 3S. It will restore the phone to the oldest version, you need to update the system software by yourself. This tool is based on Qualcomm firehose protocol, so it should fix all kinds of software issue.

ALL DATA ON YOUR PHONE WILL BE LOST

DO NOT USE THIS TOOL IF YOU ARE RED MAGIC 3!!!!!!!! IT MAY DAMAGE YOUR MOTHER BOARD!!!!!!!YOU MAY VOID THE WARRENTY WITH THIS TOOL


If the tool have any problem, please send me a pm or reply down below.

Everyone with a rm3 should use this. The SW on rm3s is much more stable. There will be no issues with your phone. I have done 3 already. Everything works fine.

Yup I already seen a Red Magic 3s with that rare RM3 grill for sale online. Just glad to see people can get a bit more resale value on there RM3 now. Just gotta figure out who is is. I might buy it just to find out.

This is not changing a rm3 to a rm3s. Anyone who thinks this, is an IDIOT. What it is doing is giving you a better, more stable FW. Another bonus is TWRP on the NA FW works. No need for the CN FW. Any idiot buying a rm3 with rm3s fw is, well, an idiot.

Well since people are flashing the 3s ROM to the 3 I'll just post this.


While ago I tested this. Found a few issues. Never tested the latest 3s ROM on the 3 but I'll just leave you with these test.

I advise people only use the 3S ROM on the 3S.

I can also confirm this works on the Red Magic 3 without issue. I have the US version so I used the Non-EU tool. It was straight forward without any issue. This ROM finally has an app drawer!!

My phone seems very stable and runs very quick. It is also able to do OTA updates without issues. I'll comment back if I find any issues.

I'm having an issue - the program never asks to install qualcomm drivers like in the guide .docx. Just goes straight to extraction. Am I missing something?

Edit: Nevermind, it seems to be working. Must've had the drivers already installed and for some reason the phone didnt show up properly the first time.

    You should check whether if your device is in EDLmode, try to reboot the phone and boot into the EDL mode may solve this issue.
