Try test points method. Search on Google for more information

Hi, yes I have read a little about this method. I am not prepared to modify any physical components to my device, not just because it is still in warranty, but due to the risk of making the situation worse, if I get another thing wrong.

Take the phone to an authorized service center or claim the warranty.
Enter EDL mode with test points method and flash using a special authorized account, is the only solution for this case.

Here we are, 2 months later. I have successfully flashed China Stable ROM on the Redmi 5 Plus and am now in the process of unlocking and flashing Global ROM. EDL & Test Points method was the way I did it.

Thank you everyone for your contributions to this thread.

After you flash the Global version over a Chinese region phone, remember that if you lock the bootloader the device will get bricked again.

Hi, yes, I checked this time! I was and still am unlocked.

I have now flashed Global ROM, and it's working well. I'm a bit disappointed about the absence of Dark Mode on 8.1.0, but that's not my place to say. I appreciate once again everyone's contributions to this resolved thread.

My long term goal now is to maybe root it (properly!) and get a custom ROM on it. Can someone please put me in the right direction for an up-to-date and detailed walkthrough for this, please? Thanks
