How to fix HardBrick on Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime. Well guys a friend of mine encountered the nightmare called, hardbrick on his most recently purchased Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime. He was so upset facing the tragedy. But he is lucky enough for finding the solution to fix his hardbricked Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime. And he told me about this, and I decided to share the guides here.
Do you what he did to make his device got the hard brick error? He told me that he did a mistake. He played with CMD (Command Prompt) and found that Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime’s bootloader is already in unlocked. He then re-locked the bootloader through a command.
Then sky fell over him. His Xiaomie Redmi 4 Prime was hard bricked, can’T power on, even when the Power button was pressed all he got was Mi logo for a minute then turned off. Things got worsen, his device couldn’t access the EDL mode, only able to access fastboot mode. When everything looked terrible he found another tragedic fact that his phone has not been logged in to the Mi account.
He then fought the best he could to find the solutions on the net and the fix required him to use Mi PC Suite Chinese version. This tool can detect his device. He was excited because his device was detected that meant he could flash. To fix the hard bricked Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime then you need to flash using Mi PC Suite China version.
Perhaps some of you don’t know that you can use Mi PC Suite to flash your device, aside of using Mi Flash Tool. So my point is in case your device is hardbrick and can not be flashed using Mi Flash Tool, then try using Mi PC Suite to flash it. If the Mi PC Suite English version doesn’t work then try to use Mi PC Suite China version and vice versa.
The files you need to download guys.
- Recovery ROM Redmi 4 Prime http://en.miui.com/download-320.html.
- Mi flash tool https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6u8ynybJKIiT3RsVTFSdHl3ZzA/view.
- Mi PC Suite (Chinese) http://zhushou.xiaomi.com/.
Those who already have Mi Flash Tool on their PC then you don’t need to re-download. And installing Mi PC Suite China requires you to be connected to the internet guys.
Note. In case you failed using the above method, then do no give up hope yet. So if you encounter bootloop and unable to access to the system after re-flash, but stuck at Mi Logo, then try to re-flash again from start. Or if you device stuck at bootloop, but can load at Mi logo, that’s good.
You need to try accessing EDL mode by pressing and holding Volume Up + Power and you will enter the EDL Mode. Now since you are in the EDL Mode, you can use Mi Flash Tool flash through download mode like normal.
Additional. May be this method can be applied on any other Xiaomi models that experiencing hardbrick, because basically all Xiaomi flashing methods are the same. The point is just download the files needed such as Mi Flash Tool, Mi PC Suite China and Recovery ROM based on your device guys.
