THIS IS FOR MI3/4 WCDMA ONLY !!

The main problem people are facing when downgrading from MIUI 8 TO MIUI 7 is that neither mi flash nor flashing roms seems to work and it wont as the devices running on 6.0.1 have a single system and a different partition table from 4.4.4(KITKAT) .
So i found a workaround for this, of course you will have to fastboot and yes your data will be deleted so please backup all your data.

Download a suitable fastboot rom (KITKAT) and extract it and get it ready for fastboot.now delete all the files leaving the images folder and its content and extract the files from the zip in the attachment and copy them over to the folder where you deleted the files(NOT IN THE IMAGES FOLDER) and now head over to mi flash and do all the steps and in advanced dialog box where a fastboot script box is there select the new flash_all.bat script and then hit refresh which recognises your device and flash.
please be patient while it flashes the rom and you are back on kitkat.

if any 1 of you have any problems just head over to this page and follow its the same thing but with more detailed instructions this >> http://en.miui.com/thread-243483-1-1.html
