this was not the first ota i installed on the phone, no root, no unlocked bootloader, original phone eea version factory sealed, fully stock/stable branch.
unlike previous ota updates, this time after the decrypt and pressing restart now, there was the loading circle for 2 seconds and then immediately just "the system has been destroyed, press poerbutton to shutdown"
after a few hours where i kept hoping it would recover on it's own - it didnt - i started to check/investigate the status...
- no recovery mode
- no edl mode
- can access fastboot mode
-can load the miunlock tool but since the phone doent have a account binded in dev options i cannot unlock it. errors out at the end of step2
-mi flash sees the device but cannot flash since it is locked bootloader.
i am just one of the users who face this issue with 10.3.1 it is very wide spread: https://c.mi.com/thread-2248593-1-0.html
FIXED IT (at least temporarely)
TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! - worked for me but i take no responsability
- boot into fastboot mode. press volume down and power until you see the mi bunny.
- install and run minimal adb & fastboot on a pc
- plug phone to pc
- run "fastboot devices" you should see a line with device id & fastboot
- run "fastboot continue"
wait for it
tadam you will be back into the old miui 10.2.9.
first thing i would do is dev options, mi unlock and bind phone & account. (that way you can then unlock)
anyone with 201903 working ota? or 201904 failing? (the manufacturing date is printed on the phone box back, bottom right near the sn barcode)
update 2: phone works OK now. without me doing anything.
