Hi Guys!
Recently I receive a Redmi Note 4 for develop on it and I want to share with you some instructions to install any OFFICIAL ROM using Flash Tools (for lock and unlock bootloaders) and few notes about TWRP. This tutorial is ONLY for Mediatek (Helio x20 / Helio x25) Device's, and it was designed for Redmi Note 4 (Codename: Nikel). The following package contains latest SP Flash Tools, and a recovery official fastboot ROM for Redmi Note 4 (with custom cust) to unbrick all Redmi Note 4 devices. (This tutorial also works in Redmi Pro -Omega- but only SP FT, not the ROM that I added in the package, be careful and DON'T INSTALL this ROM in Redmi Pro -Omega- or you will make an epic brick!)
First of all, we have to download this files (please, use Windows 10 64 bytes if it's possible):

  Please reply to view this thread.

Secondly, we'll extract .zip that we just downloaded.
Then, extract ROM and Files downloaded. Install drivers clicking on folder MTK_Driver_Installer_.1352 ext and install using Installer inside this folder.

Once you have done it, continue like always flashing any ROM for Nikel using our own SP Flash Tools:
Extract ROM (unbrick ROM, or Rom that you want)
Open folder SP-FLASH-TOOL
Open like administrator ''flash_tool.exe''
Once open Flash Tools, on Download Agent, select this download agent (MTK_All_In_One.bin). You can find it on SP Flash Tool folder.
On scatter loading, please select MTK6797 scatter in "images" folder (this folder is from ROM that you downloaded before)
Wait to load all partitions to install and then UNCHECK PRELOADER (*) (**)
Press download
Turn off mobile phone
Press Vol- and connect to your PC with original cable
When red bar appears on FT, wait 5 secs and unpress Vol- ( see yellow bar in 9-12 secs )
Wait to 100% ( yellow bar ) and green check
Disconnect mobile phone of your PC
Reboot and enjoy.

(*) IF YOU ARE TRYING TO INSTALL A CUSTOM ROM USING FLASH TOOLS: Be sure that only is checked this files: "system" and "boot". Unlock Bootloader is needed.

(**) IF YOU GET ISSUES FLASHING, PLEASE, CHECK ALL EXCEPT ''cust'', AND FLASH IT. IT SHOULD BE WORK EVEN IF YOU HAVE LOCKED BOOTLOADER. IF DOES NOT WORK, FLASH ONLY SYSTEM AND BOOT (this will not install all latest drivers, so, please, better try first to install all partitions unless preloader...).


Okey, now. If you want to install TWRP recovery, please unlock your bootloader if you didn't do it following official steps from here.

Once you have unlocked your bootloader, you can now install your TWRP Recovery (cofface or Xiaomi eu) like this:
Reboot your device on Fastboot mode: Vol - and power and connect to PC
Go to MiFlashUnlock folder (needed to unlock bootloader; you had it when you downloaded it), and copy here TWRP.img
Open a Command Window (alt+right click on this folder)
Write: fastboot flash recovery twrp.img, click enter and wait
Write: fastboot reboot, click enter and disconnect your device
When device turn ON, please turn OFF again
Turn ON your device clicking vol + and power and see TWRP Recovery
On TWRP probably you will can't see sdcard, if this happened:
Go to MiFlashUnlock folder and open again a Command Window, and connect again your device on fastboot mode
Write: fastboot format userdata and click enter (this will erase all your data!! but it's needed to use TWRP!!, have a full backup for all your files!)
Finish, reboot your device on recovery and you'll can now install anything from your media storage :P

Cheers!

Thanks:
All Epic Team members

hello guys.. i see some of you in problems to flash that Rom by SpFlashtool..
So just try to tick in FT .. system, boot. Or just System iff you got that error.In Redmi pro its the only way to Flash it but all is working ok, Even iff i flash System.img only from Developer or Stable chinese oficcial Rom. (not the zip rom but the TGZ rom to fastboot) . We can flash in locked BL by flashtool.
I can flash all roms (officcial chinese) for fastboot with spflashtool using only System and boot ..IFF I TICK ALL LIKE YOU SHOW IN PICTURES I HAVE SAME ERROR.
This is valid to Redmi Pro and probably to Redmi Note 4.
Ps: For some SHOP ROMS this tick don't work .
Now the solution seems to be :Use firmware upgrade and it will give  (space error) after some process in Flashtool , but it change to the correct preloader. After that flash using "Download mode" but untick  PRELOADER..

Good luck to all
