Please read the full text and help me if anything can solve my problem. Also I can't go to Mi help center due to this lockdown, so can you suggest ways the help center person would do to fix this issue?
I have Redmi Note 4 (SD). I flashed MIUI 184.108.40.206 port for mido (ROM discussed in this video.) It had many bugs so I was trying to flash back to stock ROM using Mi Flash Tool (old version).
I was using linux for fastboot and adb commands and for Mi Flash Tool i was using win 7 in virtual box
I selected clean_all&lock.bat But after systerm image processing it gave me error
error message said something about partition not been empty(sorry cant remember the exact error and log file also doesn't exist anymore)
Now my phone was on fastboot mode for atleast 5 hours so I used
via linux terminal.
But phone didn't boot and gave me black (empty screen)
I thought might be battery is low but when I connected it to charger nothing happened.
I couldn't boot to recovery or fastboot mode (and can't do it now too).
I searched on internet more for help and found about EDL mode. I tried that but Virtual Machine wasn't loading the Qualcomm driver so I installed windows 10 .
ALSO I searched about the error on internet and found the solution to use latest mi flash tool.
So I tried with that. BUT I AM NOT SURE IF IT IS CONNECTED BY PROPER EDL MODE BECAUSE MI FLASH TOOL INSTEAD OF SHOWING COMX AS DEVICE NAME, IT IS SHOWING MY INCOMPLETE FASTBOOT DEVICE NAME .
I clicked to flash by selecting clean all&lock but it gave me this error
The volume does not contain a recognized file system.Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted.
ALSO THE DEVICE IS SHOWN IN LATEST VERSION BUT NOT IN OLDER VERSION IN EDL MODE
Then after many attempts to flash
Now it shows this
$fastboot -s 34564c88 getvar product 2>&1 | findstr /r /c:"^product: *MSM8953" || fastboot -s 34564c88 getvar product 2>&1 | findstr /r /c:"^product: *mido" || echo Missmatching image and device
It was stuck at this for like 1000+ seconds.
I searched about it and tried this solution. In this it tell to delete line 10 and 11 but in mine file it was present at 4 places so i deleted them all.
But then it got stuck at next command in clean_all&lock.bat file
[9:39:38 PM 34564c88]:start process id 8956 name cmd [9:39:38 PM 34564c88]:info1:$rem fastboot -s 34564c88 erase bk12 2>&1 [9:39:38 PM 34564c88]:info1:$if not 0 == 0 exit /B 1 [9:39:38 PM 34564c88]:info1:$fastboot -s 34564c88 oem device-info 2>&1 | findstr /r /c:"Device unlocked: true" || echo Device oem locked
To give a try I deleted this line too but then it got stuck at next line.
ALSO TO ACCESS EDL WE NEED TO SHORT JTAG PINS BUT MY LAPTOP (WITH WIN 10) ACCEPTS IT WITHOUT DOING THAT
