Greeting MIUI Lovers,

Steps for Flashing/Unbricking Mi Max 2 with Test Points:-
   

Please be noted I will not take any responsibility for anything happened to your device.


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


Note: This method will work with every ROM, Upgrade/Downgrade, Locked BL/Unlocked BL. Don't ask queries before reading the whole guide.



When you can use Test Point for Flashing:

  • 1. If a phone is totally dead, No Fastboot, No recovery.
  • 2. If you are struck in Qualcomm USB 900e mode.
  • 3. The bootloader is locked and a device is in bootloop.
  • 4. You need to Flash Developer or Stable ROM on Locked BL.

EDL Mode has been removed/Disabled from 8.1 onwards, you can flash on Unlocked BL only.


           Video To Disassemble Mi Max 2: Link


Now time to Test Point, let me first show the location of Test Points.






Now You need a twizzer or Piece of wire to Short/connect the test points to Enter EDL mode.


Follow the below steps for effective results.

  • a. Disconnect the Battery Connector from Main Board. Keep Device Manager Opened on PC and wait for hardware changes when you will short Test Points.
  • b. First Connect USB cable to Phone only and Place Phone on stable position.(Battery should be disconnected).
  • c. Short the Test Points with Twizzer or Wire and now Connect USB to PC. When PC detects new hardware, Remove Twizzer/Wire from Test Points.
  • d. You will get a new device in Device Manager, It can be QHUSB_BULK or Qualcomm HS-USB.


           If you get
Qualcomm HS-USB  as shown below, Skip Updater Driver Steps.



If you got QHUSB_BULK, Right Click and choose Update Drivers Else skip this driver Update part and start flashing.


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



Choose Browse My Computer for Driver Software.


Choose the Path of Xiaomi Folder. Most of the users will find it like this.


Note: - If Folder does not exist, Install MI Flash and check C:\XiaoMi\XiaoMiFlash



Choose Install this Driver Software anyway.



Wait till driver installation successful.



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

You are ready to flash any ROM on your MI MAX 2


You will need Fastboot ROM. Recovery ROM will not work. If you have already downloaded Fastboot ROM, there is no need to download again.

(File Extension with.Zip file is Recovery ROM, .tgz or .tar file is Fastboot ROM, if it is .tar after download, Rename to .tgz for easy extraction)

You can download latest Fastboot ROM and MI Flash from below link, Old Rom can be downloaded from Mi Max 2 ROM Section:
http://en.miui.com/a-234.html

Steps to Flash ROM: -

1. Download ROM from the above link (Which one you want to Flash) and extract it to Desktop or any location on PC (Use Winrar Software to extract).
(Please check if the file suffix is '.tgz'. Please rename it to '.tgz' if the suffix is '.gz or .tar')

2. Download flashing tool from the above link and install it. Once the installation is complete, Run MiFlash application. Click on browse and Select ROM folder from Desktop(From the location where ROM is saved)
Note: Use latest Mi Flash Tool only, it will work on both 32 and 64 Bit windows.



3. Press Refresh button to see your device in flashing tool.After pressing refresh button you will see a connected device.


4. Click on Flash and it will start flashing ROM on your device.
     Note: Clean All, Save User data will not work in EDL Mode.


5. Once Flashing Process Completes, You will see success Message

6. Remove the cable and Connect the two connectors to the phone and power it on.

Re-Assemble Phone in Power off Mode.

The device will start, wait until completion, it can take up to 10-20 minutes.
