Hi MIUIer's

Nowadays, there are various options available to us if we get bored of using a particular ROM or sometimes it happens that our smartphone requires a clean fastboot flash to fix it.  So, today let's discuss about fast booting your device using the Mi Flash Tool.

Thing's Required :

1) Windows PC/Laptop.
2) USB Cable.
3) Mi Flash Tool.
4) Latest device specific Fastboot ROM.
5) 7 Zip software for Windows PC.
6) Fully charged Mi Smartphone (atleast 50% charge should be there else it may cause trouble).

Once all the above are arranged, we can proceed further...

1) Install 7 Zip.
2) Using 7 Zip extract the Fastboot ROM (TGZ File).

3) You will find another zip file (TAR File) in the extracted folder. Extract that file too using 7 Zip

4) Install Mi Flash Tool.
5) Open Mi Flash Tool using icon created after installation.
6) Switch off your phone.
7) Press Vol - & Power button simultaneously to start the device in Fastboot Mode.

8) Now connect the phone to your PC/Laptop using USB Cable.
9) Press the Refresh button & you will have the following screen of Mi Flash Tool.

Once device is connected & detected, enter the correct path of the final extracted folder using the Browse button.

Select Flash All for best results as it will clean install the ROM. Now, press Flash button & wait for the procedure to complete. Once successfully flashed device will reboot & you can safely disconnect it from your PC/Laptop.

The device will be showing Mi Logo screen, it will take sometime to install entire MIUI on your device so kindly wait patiently & let the process end.  Once the process ends it will show the MIUI 8 logo for you to do the device setup - just like the new device you get out of box.  Complete the setup & your device is ready to be used.


  • Bootloader should be unocked before trying to fastboot.
  • I did it successfully on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 4.
  • Carry out each instruction very carefully & exactly as directed.
  • I’m not at all responsible for any damage whatsoever to your device.
  • Fastboot your device at YOUR OWN RISK.
  • Take backup of your data as device will be formated during the process.
