hi everyone,
i was running latest miui naamieb update, without root but with unlocked bootloader.
my phone all of a sudden shut down and went bootloop .tried to flash stock rom again (saving user data) through mi flash app several times, but nothing happened, i kept having the same error
REMOTE : FAILED TO ERASE PARTITION. This error appers also if i manually try to erase partition though fastboot.Nothing can be flashed either erased, i can boot into some twrp recorey through miui recovery tool , and twrp display a decryption page(though i never set any password). i'm hopeless ,3 day been looking on the web for any solution but nothing so far

You pray hard that your EFS partition is still around else it is a hard brick phone.

Since your bootloader is unlocked. Are you able to boot to fastboot?

Disable your driver signature in your PC/laptop which you connect your Mi5.

Connect your Mi5 to your PC/laptop and boot your Mi5 to edl mode (Press Vol up and down together with power button).

Then you will see the driver of Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader XXXX is installing.

Once the driver completed installation, open up your Mi Flash and flash it.

Make sure your fastboot file same as mine
