Greetings MIUI Lovers and Redmi 3S Users,



maxresdefault.jpg


Steps for Flashing/Unbrick Redmi 3S works for LOCKED and UNLOCKED Bootloader:


Please be noted I will not take any responsibility for anything happened to your device. Use Windows 64-Bit, users having issue on 32-Bit Windows. You may face this error "Not enough storage to process this command".

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


Tools To Download:

You need to Start your Phone in Download Mode. (Not Fastboot Mode)


Do The Following:
1. Go to the Recovery Mode by Volume Up and Power button.
2. Click Download from Screen.
3. Plug USB Cable to PC.
4. PC will install the device driver, let it do its job.

On your PC do these next steps:


1. Open Device Manager and Phone will be detected as QHUSB_BULK under the Com Ports section.


Right Click and choose Update Drivers.

Note : - Driver Signature Enforcement: It's recommended to disable. Reboot your PC in Advanced Mode and Choose Disable Driver Signature.

Follow this thread (Credits to @feds64 ) Disable Driver Signature Enforcement in Windows 7/8/10 64-Bit


2. Choose Browse My Computer for Driver Software


3. Choose the Path of Xiaomi Folder. Most of users will find it like this.
Note:- If Folder does not exist , Install MI Flash (Link below) first.

Win 64 bit C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Xiaomi \ MiPhone \ Qualcomm \ Driver

Win 32 bit C: \ Program Files \ Xiaomi \ MiPhone \ Qualcomm \ Driver


4. Choose Install this Driver Software anyway.


5. Wait till driver installation successful.


6. The driver will be installed Sucessfully and you can see added in Ports as Qualcomm HS-USB.

Now we are ready to Flash!

Flashing ROM Part.Windows 64-Bit recommended as users are facing issues on 32-Bit and brick thier devices.

The ROM links below are of Fastboot Rom. Recovery ROM will not work.If you have already downloaded Fastboot ROM no need to Download again.
(File Extension with .Zip file is Recovery ROM, .tgz or .tar file is Fastboot ROM)

you can choose your Fastboot rom here:

Fastboot Rom Download Link

Global Stable (V7.5.8) : Download Here
China Stable (V7.5.1) : Download Here


If link does not work, Put Letter "o" not Zero before the Link address.

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


Steps to Flash ROM: -
1. Download ROM from the above link (Which one you want to Flash) and extract it to Desktop(Use Winrar or 7-Zip Software to extract).
(Please check if the file suffix is '.tgz'. Please rename it to '.tgz' if the suffix is '.gz or .tar')
Note: - Some users get error while extracting on Desktop Because there is space in the username of PC or the folder as shown.

The users should put the ROM In C Drive in a folder without spaces. E,g C:/ROM/MIUI

2. Download flashing tool from the above link and install it.
3. Once installation is complete, Run MiFlash Beta application.
4. Click on browse.
5. Select ROM folder from Desktop(From the location where ROM is saved).

I followed the guide, it works great. I had a locked store rom 7.8, now I have Official global developers 6.9.29 without unlocking my phone.
Thanks a lot

You should know:
Don’t change MiFlash Installing folder location otherwise it won’t recognize your device.
and Choose "Flash all" option = "Clean All" in MiFlash last beta

This worked great for me, I have the Redmi 3S Prime bought from Gearbest.com it had MIUI 7.8.21.8, I flashed the phone with the ROM suggested in this thread (MIUI 7.5.8 Global), I did it on Windows 10 64 bit and it took about 45 minutes, but it worked, then I was able to easily update to MIUI 8.1.1 through the Updater app.
