  1. Followed your steps exactly. Everything came in command prompt as okay and cmd closed and my phone rebooted. Apps were installed till 100%. Waited for more than 10 min, but phone remained in bootscreen showing MI screen.

  2. Do we need device drivers for this process? I’m running win7 32-bit and there’s no redmi 1s drivers for 32-bit os. I get this error in cmd – missmatch image and device

    What should i do now? My phone’s been dead since days.
