How to enter flash mode

Bootloader Unlocking

Like other Xiaomi devices, the user will have to acquire the bootloader unlock key: https://en.miui.com/unlock

The device will not unlock if the device isn't 7 days old (from the time when your device connects to internet and powered on, and linked with Mi Account)

Recovery mode

  • Turn the device off (or restart also works)
  • Hold Volume Up and Power button
  • Once you feel vibration and phone turns on, release Power button
  • Keep holding Volume Up until you get to recovery.

Flashing (Download, Fastboot) mode

  • Same as recovery, but this time hold the Volume Down and Power keys.

Installation

  • Install pmbootstrap first on your PC
  • zap & reinit pmbootstrap (pmbootstrap -y zap ; pmbootstrap init), choose xiaomi-platina as a device
  • proceed with installation as usual: reboot device to fastboot mode, then:
pmbootstrap install
pmbootstrap flasher flash_kernel
pmbootstrap flasher flash_rootfs
pmbootstrap flasher flash_vbmeta

And then

fastboot reboot
