[Q&A] Redmi Note 5 AI Chinese (running Global ROM) - This MIUI version can't be installed on this device

Hi,

I am using a Redmi Note 5 AI (Chinese version bought on AliExpress) running Global ROM. After the recent OTA update of Android Pie, my phone is bricked and shows up the recovery screen with error message "This version of MIUI can't be installed on this device". I am not sure, if my phone boot loader is locked; as i was never aware of this and never checked it.

I am in a bad state, where i did not completely backup my phone since 1 month before i ran the OTA update on Redmi Note 5; and need the data very badly.

Question -
Is there any way i can recover the data from the device current state?

I understand i was little careless about the update process (never was like this before), is there anyway i can set my phone to working mode without much hassle ?

On my Redmi Note 5, does flashing a recovery Chinese ROM using  that might be released in the next few weeks (higher than the current global version that bricked the phone) clear the device memory ?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply @John_Doe,

i did find few answers, but that doesn't cover all my queries.  Can you/ some one help me with the below query -


Does ROM flashing clear device memory i.e. Pictures, Musics, Apps & User Data; Or is there any way i can recover my data from Redmi note 5 AI mobile (in its current state showing: "This MIUI version can't be installed on this device" error message) ?

Thank you!
i'm afraid from the position you are in all data will be lost .
    You may read about data recovery software tools that claim miracles of restore after wiping all data .
      Out of curiosity i tried to see fairly recently what was recoverable after system wipe and it was very minimal .

Thanks for the response @Sarge7,

i'll flash the latest GLOBAL ROM (post flashing with Chinese ROM, and unlocking boot loader), then will try my luck with the recovery softwares.
Have a nice day!

Hi @Rezha Illa Rusla,

Yes, i did mention the same in my previous post. But my Redmi Note 5 AI doesn't allow me to flash it with the latest Chinese stable or Dev/Beta ROM's. The Mi Flash Pro tool flashes the error message "Cannot flash older version of ROM". Also i tried to flash the latest Global Dev ROM, but that did not help, and i still saw the error message "This MIUI version cannot be installed on this device"

FYI, the Redmi Note 5 AI official China Stable and Beta/ Developer ROM can be found here -
http://www.miui.com/download-341.html
And the Global versions here - http://en.miui.com/download-342.html#508 (Note: you can select the russia version by selecting the menu link - Redmi Note 5 Russia)

I didn't want to wait for more than a month just to flash the newer china ROM on my phone (and later to go back to older global ROM). I took the step to open my phone back cover and with Qualcomm EDL approach, i was successfully able to install the older version of global ROM, you can find the reference here - https://c.mi.com/thread-2219086-1-0.html (BIG THANKS TO KILLERENGEL). Now i am waiting for permissions (167 hours to go) to unlock the boot loader of the phone, so that i don't have to go through this hiccup later.

Thanks everyone
