Hi,

I am on the latest Global Stable ROM, would like to flash to Global Beta ROM as mentioned in the thread... But would like to know, if I could flash using the Recovery ROM option instead of FASTBOOT.

Some people in the threads and Telegram have been telling to use Fastboot ROM alone, but for this I need to unlock my device but I am unable to unlock it yet as I am getting a message like "Current account is not bound to this device". It is informed to wait for some days, but still I am getting the same message. I used the steps as mentioned in the threads... Also I tried to go to Mi Unlock option under Developer options to bind the device but there also I am getting either a Chinese message or saying "Not able to connect to network, try later".

So, please let me know, can I go ahead and use the Recovery option, as I have already downloaded the full Beta ROMs and taken backup too...

Would appreciate help in this above regard...

Thanks
Joe

Just download Fast boot link and rename to update. Zip and paste in Internet phone memory and go t ...

You mean to say to just download the Fastboot Download file and rename to update.zip and do it from Update App...

But the problem is, the Fastboot file which we have downloaded is a .tgz file and not a .zip file. So, this file won't work on a phone but only through MiFlash tool but for that I have to unlock the device too...

Please confirm what you did step by step again...

Thanks
Joe

Sir after downloaded rename to update. Zip and copy in you are phone Internet memory after that go ...

Thanks, Suryavamsi, you mean to download the Recovery ROM latest update which is 7.5.25 for now. But what doubt I have is it is mentioned in the Flashing instructions that Recovery ROM should not be used for MTK devices or devices with bootloader locked. And in the case of Redmi 4A in India and all devices in India from Redmi Note 3 is bootloader locked, so they say to use Fastboot ROM only and to do it through Mi Flash tool...

So, that is why I am asking it again, did you do this approach of renaming the Recovery ROM latest update to update.zip, also that your device bootloader was locked in your Redmi 4A when you did this...?
