Hei Redmi 5/Plus fans,

What's cooking with your Redmi 5/Plus device? This the another volume for my "ifelixit" series. Xiaomi's Redmi device lineup has been refreshed with two new models: The Redmi 5 Plus and its smaller, cheaper sidekick, the Redmi 5. We’re fans of the Redmi range, which provides a strong design and specification, along with excellent value for money. This winning formula continues with the Redmi 5 Plus and Redmi 5.

Given a Bricked Redmi 5/Plus or failing to boot after a disastrous flashing leaving the user with non-functional phone, that is, fastboot or recovery cannot be attain at all or failing to unlock but wishing to flash to enter EDL mode. Lets get a solution quick to get it, PC detected to flash the Official designated ROM back on your partially dead Redmi 5/Plus. Hence, what is the last resort before going to the service center. The ultimate solution is Test Point Method, which is to short-circuit the resistor to ground and get the PC to recognize the phone in Emergency Download (EDL) mode. I would not be recommending any Deep Flasher Cable (DFC), even though I was the first to use it effectively, even before there is a tutorial made on the MIUI Forum since the circuitry of the DFC is different for different Mi devices. Let's kick in the Test Point Method...

Testpoint for RedmiPlus Banner2.jpg

Tools:
  • 1. Anti-static angle tweezer
  • 2. Plastic Crowbar
  • 3. Plastic Prying Tools
  • 4. Plastic Antistatic Crowbar
  • 5. 1.5 Philips screw driver

Testpoint Redmi 5 Rosy.jpg

Firstly, we start off with swtiching off your phone, then remove the Hybrid SIM tray with the ejector pin.


Next use the plastic prying tool, kind of run it thru the slit around the phone, until it slowly giving more space to allow your fingernail to pry it open. Take extra care of the fingerprint mechanism ribbon cable which is on the back cover connected to the motherboard, dismantle it for easy access or to avoid mishap to the ribbon cable.

Then using a 1.5 Philips screw driver, remove the four (4) screws holding the tin plate, to access the the battery socket/terminal, as shown below:-

Followed by, unplugging the battery terminal connector.

Next, we deal with the Test Point for those having issue with their PC/Laptop not detecting Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 under the Ports (COM & LPT) on their Device Manager.

Assuming, the phone has been pried opened. Here is the effective points.

Step One:
Make sure the Battery connector is dismantled.

Step Two:
Use a sharp pointed Angle Tweezer and short the Test points firmly, as shown below:-

Next, goto the Redmi 5/Plus Flashing Method section below, to revive your device.

Note: Advisable keep your PC sound level loud, which will help you to know of the activity of the connection.

Next use the plastic prying tool, kind of run it thru the slit around the phone, until it slowly giving more space to allow your fingernail to pry it open. There not much to worry as the fingerprint mechanism, no longer built to the back cover connected by a ribbon cable which need extra care.

Essentials:


Step One:
Immediately plug in your USD DATA Cable while keeping the Test Points short properly, and your PC/Laptop will notify you of a new device being connected and it will download the necessary driver for the Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 under the Ports (COM & LPT) on the Device Manager as shown below:


Step Two:
Remove the Angle Tweezer. Thereafter, launch your Mi Flash Tool, as shown below:

That's it for this series of "ifelixit". Stay tuned for the Ported MIUI ROM for MI A1 for Mi A1 users. Coming soon for the MIUI-ers.



DISCLAIMER: DO ON YOUR OWN RISK. Flashing can potentially bricked or bootloop your device.

Hi feds64,

Thanks for the tutorial posted above . But would like to clarify that this test point method I thought only works with the china dev rom and not with 9.2.6.0 global rom ?.

Thanks

Really hope I don't need this but thank you for such a clear article. My phone recently arrived (5 Plus)  with 9.2.3.0 and telling me there is an update available to 9.2.6.0  -  BUT  -  the bootloader is unlocked. I have just applied for permission to unlock it officially. I won't be updating or anything until I get permission. 15 days to go
