Step 5. From the tool click on the ‘Browse’ button and select the image folder of the ROM file that you extracted on the C:/ drive on the Step 3.


Step 6. Now 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:-

clears all the data of the built-in storage, clear all user data, please be careful!

will erase all user data does not clear the built-in storage data.

does not clear the built-in storage data does not clear user data

I would recommended using the flash_all_except_storage.bat since this will wipe and flash everything but the virtual sdcard.
Step 7. After this, Turn off the phone, press the Volume– key and the Power button at the same time to enter Fastboot mode, then connect the phone to a computer.

Step 8. Now click on the ‘Refresh’ button and you will see the device on the tool list.


Step 9. Once the device is connected, Click on the ‘Flash’ button and now the flashing process will start on your phone. Wait until the progress bar on MiFlash is green, which means the ROM is successfully flashed, and the phone will automatically boot.


That’s it. Now the Full MIUI Rom is install on your Xiaomi Android phone. Check out the Full video guide below:-

  1. Aright, not sure what I am doing wrong. Followed the steps perfectly, however, when I try to flash, it times out and gives me a 0X80004005 Remote: Flash write failure.
    This all started the other day after I performed an OTA update and the phone randomly shut off and just showed the mi logo. I first tried the cache and data wipe, which didn’t work. Now this won’t work. I am running windows XP, 32 bit. SP2.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.
