I've found my Xiaomi redmi note 4 stuck in fastboot mode after the battery had died. I tried different ways to unbrick it but nothing helps. The list of ways I tried:

  1. platform tools fastboot binary. fastboot reboot bootloader - still rebooting to fastboot.enter image description here says I can unlock it but... Also, adb binary doesn't recognize my device.
  2. I can't use mi unlock tool because it doesn't see my phone.
  3. Miflash doesn't recognize the device also.

Are there any other ways to unbrick it?

Edit: It's Mediatek Helio X20

  • If your device is in bootloader/fastboot mode then adb does not work that is by design: android.stackexchange.com/a/225159/2241

  • first i would try is, in fastboot mode keep holding Volume Up while fastboot reboot and release button when in recovery mode. there you can wipe cache

  • @alecxs still rebooting to fastboot. Do you know if there any mac os drivers from the examples above? Jun 22, 2020 at 13:15
  • flash boot recovery system from SP Flash Tool. make sure you have the right scatter file. always flash with golden rules: "Download Only" + never flash preloader

The problem was not in fastboot mode. The reason was that my volume button was shortening and was always pressed. Fixing the button solved the issue.
