FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE A ROCK BRICKED XIAOMI REDMI 1S , WHICH
1) Doesn't startup on pressing power button.
2) Phone doesn't start in recovery mode.
3) Phone doesn't enter fastboot mode ( power + volume down).
4) No notification led showing battery charging status.
5) Flashed a ROM meant for some other phone by mistake.

UNBRICKING PROCEDURE
.
1. Download the latest version of MiFlash application available.
     I used this one --- > http://enbigota.d.miui.com/tools/MiPhone20140509.exe

2. Download the fastboot version ROM's under the tab "Redmi 1S (Global) Country Fastboot Rom Files Download Link"
    from  the country of your choice.  
    From this thread http://en.miui.com/thread-68271-1-1.html

3. Unzip the ROM and place in a directory such that the absolute address of the folder location does not have any spaces and is as short as possible.

4. Install the Mi Flash application and run it as admin.

5. Open device manager on windows 7. Start ---> Control Panel --->Hardware and Sound --> Device manager ( under Devices and Printers)

6. Open the port dropdown from device list and select the Qualcomm hs-usb diagonastic COM port (you can see it in the attached image "qualcomm9006.png"

7. Now right click the Qualcomm hs-usb diagnostic and select update driver software. And complete the update.

8. Now restart your windows and be sure to press F8 during boot and select disable driver signature ( see attached image BootOptions )
    In case you continue without selecting this option during boot , you may get messages like as is in the attached image " error.jpg " while flashing

9. Now connect the usb cable to your phone and then to your computer.

10. Open MiFlash and press refresh and see if it show the device on its list

11. Now press browse and select the folder where the ROM was extracted to ( verify that the folder location is as per  step 3 )

12. You can also select the advance option and select each file separately. (its optional)
   click on the ‘Browse’ button again and Advance and Choose the “Fastboot script” from the extracted ROM folder.  
                    *Choose the script carefully as per your need:-
                    1.flash_all.bat:
                    clears all the data of the built-in storage, clear all user data, please be careful!

                    2.flash_all_except_storage.bat:
                    will erase all user data does not clear the built-in storage data.

                    3.flash_all_except_data_storage.bat:
                    does not clear the built-in storage data does not clear user data

                    * If you are still confused which one to choose , I would suggest no 2.


13. Now press the magic button --> FLASH on the MiFlash interface .

14. Your phone may not start sometimes , in this case try charging the phone.

15. Hope you end up seeing the "success.jpg"

And those who have succesfully unbricked , do comment and and share your experience, and participate in this poll (added on 31/12/2014) to check the success rate of the procedure.

Global will work too ! But I tested on the china fastboot rom.
Basically in a dead brick condition no one cares which ROM to use to get the device up again.
and once your device is unbricked you can install any rom you want.

BRAVO!!!
It saved my phone: "I have ONLY MI Recovery. Mi recovery can read only internal sd card :(Mi flash doesent detect my phone, PC doesent detect my phone anymore, MI PC suite doesent detect my phone anymore.
HELP!"
BUT with tweaking. it didnt work on my laptop with win 7, it worked on desktop win 8.
Steps 5,6,7,8 were impossible/unnecessary
For step 3 i had to unpack 2 times, because it was double packed.
Rawshan, well done, you saved my life, my wife would killed me if i couldnt fix her phone what i broke.


Don't waste a post for saying thanks, wow, owesome,... !! Just press that rate or support button.

Does it have to be China fastboot ROM? What about global fastboot ROM?
Redmi Note 4 owners please go to these links and click confirm. Hopefully the devs will look into it ASAP.

I don't think step 8 will be the same for windows xp users , as " disable driver signature enforcement " is not there in f8 menu of windows xp.
