Hello there,

Don't worry, Here's how you proceed to solve the error.


Adb Installation on PC:
- First of all download Minimal ADB & Fastboot setup from below
- Save the file to you pc/laptop running windows
- Double click & Install it

Turn Debug Mode ON Phone:
- Go to Settings - About Phone, on your phone.
- Keep clicking "MIUI Version" till you get a message saying "Congratulations, you're a developer."
- Go back to Settings - Additional Settings - Developer options
- Turn on "USB Debugging" - Click Ok
- Now connect your phone to computer via USB
- Upon successfull connection, you will see dialog box asking permission, Click Ok

If you are having problem with drivers then install MI PCsuite & MI Flash too

- Now Check your connection by issuing this command:

adb devices
