Greeting MIUI Lovers,


Steps for Flashing/Unbricking Redmi Note 5 Pro(India) with Test Points:-


Please be noted I will not take any responsibility for anything happened to your device.


Important: - Before flashing, it is advised to take the backup of data and make sure that your phone battery is charged enough.


Note: This method will work with every ROM, Upgrade/Downgrade, Locked BL/Unlocked BL. Don't ask queries before reading the whole guide.



When you can use Test Point for Flashing:

  • 1. If a phone is totally dead, No Fastboot, No recovery.
  • 2. If you are struck in Qualcomm USB 900e mode.
  • 3. The bootloader is locked and a device is in bootloop.
  • 4. You need to Flash Developer or Stable ROM on Locked BL.


EDL Mode has been removed/Disabled from 8.1 onwards, you can flash on Unlocked BL only.


Steps to Disassemble Redmi Note 5 Pro:


1. Power off the Phone and remove the SIM Card Tray.
