Recently we've seen a lot of bricked Mi5 from flashing Xiaomi Mi5 in edl mode. If you're bricked and can find no way out, don't despair yet! Try this and see if it can help you!
Fortunately, the brick fix may be quite simple.
1. Download the latest English Mi PC Phone Suite (Yes, ENGLISH version)
To unbrick Xiaomi Mi5, download the latest English Mi PC Phone Suite. We’ve uploaded the exact version used successfully by users already, just in case changes are made in a future version that block this method.
to view this thread.
2. Boot into recovery mode
With the phone unplugged from the PC, hold VolUp+Power until you see an image of a phone with a USB cable. This is a recovery mode of sorts.
Now plug your phone into the PC. If any windows from the Xiaomi Phone Suite pop open, close them.
3. Start the recovery
****On the right side of the English Xiaomi Phone Suite, you will see “Update” and next to that a little drop down icon.
****Click the update drop down icon and you will see “Flash” and “R.Flash”. Select “R.Flash”. This is short for “Recovery Flash"
4. The SD update ROM flash initializes
You will see a circle going round and round. After 10-30 seconds you should see your current ROM version come up in the upper-left hand corner of Mi PC Phone Suite. Then about 10-30 seconds later will see an approval button show up.
5. The Xiaomi Mi5 ROM flash begins
If all goes well, the ROM should download and flash to your phone. The entire process takes quite awhile, so assuming the flash has started, give it at least an hour to complete. It will have to download the recovery ROM, which is usually more than 1GB.
Even after the bar on the phone is at 100%, give it at least half an hour or longer before deciding it’s been unsuccessful. In our user’s case it worked on the first try.
6. After unbricked, you can update to Global ROM
