Are you guys serious about the war on Xiaomi against the re-sellers? Because of that they do not allow EDL mode? Come on, many of us have been into developing and modding on xda since ages, me from 2005. And i have never ever once heard of such a step from any manufacturer.
If you lock your own OS from third party flashing, then you MUST provide a simple way for the user to choose what he wants on their phones. Its stupid to say that CN Stable is better that CN Dev, because its not :) Many reasons are there, and i will not explain them now. But, nothing works on Mi 5, and its a complete mess what Xiaomi has done with its OS:
- The MI Flash can not flash Mi 5
- You can not flash Updater ROMs any more, its not allowed
- Mi Pc Suite its not updated for the NEW FLAGSHIP to flash it or do anything with it
- EDL mode its disabled
- Mi UnLock is the WORST solution any manufacturer released so far, and i just wonder if its possible to make it that bad. And can not unlock the phone if you don't put 15 drivers on your MUST-BE 64bit PC..
Come on, do you think that Xiaomi is fighting the re-sellers? I think that Xiaomi is giving them cheap devices, so they can sell outside of China because they don't. This is the ONLY fight they will loose with the customers, because this is far too complicated even for me, so 99% will be lost in these procedures..
We will see how this situation will turn out in the end, but its not going to be positive. I hope for the best.
