Hello MI Fans,|
Lets checkout on How we can Install FASTBOOTD Drivers on your PC which is required for devices shipping with Android 10. As we all know Google is implementing some cool stuff to Android which would cause both Positive & Negative Impact. Firstly Treble!! It was a great revolution when it was actually out. Many older devices got Unofficial Treble Support! Now thanks to Xiaomi for shipping with a partiton called /cust, Custom Rom developers made use of that partition and converted that to /vendor, which actually Helped on Booting GSI's [ They are nothing but Generic Images which can be flashed on any Device ]. So Now with Android 10 we have got Dynamic Prtition. Checkout it's structure below.
So in simple words it is nothing but moving system,vendor,product,odm under one Partition [SUPER]. Now with this Type of Partiton we cannot use the below commands to flash system,vendor,product from fastboot mode. We need fastbootd to do the job
Now here comes the Tricky Part, not all PC/Laptops Recognize FASTBOOTD Mode. You have to install a unsigned driver which actually helps to recognize your device when connected to PC in FASTBOOTD mode and that would help in installing system,vendor,product images [ MOSTLY WE WOULD USE THE FASTBOOTD MODE TO FLASH ANY GSI OR CUSTOM ROMS WHEN A DEVELOPER PROVIDES FASTBOOT IMAGES ].Check the Below Image it helped me to boot into FASTBOOTD but it could not detect.
