o.t. - but maybe you can also explain me what "fastbootD" (written in yellow) is ?!?
It's written like this to be sure that people read correctly and see difference with only fastboot...it seems D mode bypass some limitations, but not sure exactly..Google is not always your friend specially on this...I'm sure that if you don't use it you can't flash correctly GSI builds...

does not work - in the original rom there are some .img (boot, boot-gki, super, vbmeta, ....) but neither a system nor a recovery and MiFlash does not recognize the phone

fastboot is not a problem (with power button or adb), the phone is also recognized by the pc - but not by 'miflash20210226'

    I didn't face any issue.
    I patched boot image of same miui version which was on my device using magisk app and flashed as mentioned on thread.
    Also, i have sold lisa today. Getting 5a.
    Ok thanks. 5a is a good device. Happy days with your new device. Cheers.

    Hi, first of all, I'm not a dev or else just user who had difficulties to flash GSI rom on my phone... Was 7 years with a samsung galaxy Note 3, with twrp....So easy to flash....
    with the help of @gr0ndpa, thanks to him.....

    Now I will explain how to flash easily with files attached

    1/ first of all you need a phone and drivers installed, use xiaomi pc suite, unzip and install it
    2/ you need to activate USB debug in dev options.
    3/ dl adb folder unzip it and put in C
    4/ run command and type
    Code:
    cd /adb
    5/ then
    Code:
    adb devices
    to check if phone recognised
    6/
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
    once in fast boot
    7/
    Code:
    fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    wait finished type to enter in fastbootD
    8/
    Code:
    fastboot reboot fastboot
    9/
    Code:
    fastboot flash system
    LiR 313.XXX.img
    you will have a system error, but wait the flash begin in few seconds
    at the end wait ok then
    10/
    Code:
    fastboot reboot recovery
    on stock recover
    11/ wipe data and reboot with +/- and PWR

    and you're done...

    In case you want to flash custom kernel or patched boot image to root with magisk, you have to

    12/
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader

    Copy kernel boot image to C drive and rename kernel boot image to boot.img.

    13/
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot c:\boot.img
    14/
    Code:
    fastboot reboot


    In case you want to flash twrp put the file to adb folder and type in fastboot
    15/
    Code:
    fastboot boot twrp.img



    You can check what I ve done on tuto ss...

    if you have some comments, don't hesitate...
    I flashed LiR 18.1 rom and very happy with it.....

    After I enter this, it just stays on waiting for any device.

    Update: I was able to figure it out. My device had no drivers so I went search through updates on windows and installed a LeMobile Android driver os it shows up properly in device manager.
    because you don't have xiaomi drivers installed...install xiaomi pc suite and you will have drivers installed...
