[Q&A] Help Needed - Error updating ROM on 'soft bricked' phone [update]

2022-06-17 01:01:26

Hello,
I can ellaborate much more but I'm starting with a summerized version.

Redmi Note 8 Pro is Locked due to 'Soft Brick' that was caused due to Restart during NFC update.
For 3-4 Months I've been waiting for ROM update because only way to talk to phone is with MiPCSuite, and I am trying to either fix issue or retrieve data.

I've been trying to update with the MiPCSuite and got these screens and errors.
1. ROM was downloaded manually from this link and was put in "D:\Xiaomi\MiPhoneManager\OTA" Folder
2. Phone recognizes PCSuite and reports old version. PCSuite allows update. (version 3.2.1.3111)

3. Due to step 1, Update reaches 50% on the spot.

4. About 5 seconds in, attached is the error screen and software logs appering.

MiPcSuiteLog.zip (33.07 KB, Downloads: 0)

What now ?? :(
I really hope someone can help me figure out what am I doing wrong, or what else can I do to save the phone's DATA.
Thanks in advance,

MadBafla

PC Suite is no longer supported. But you can try an unofficial (ported) from here : https://c.mi.com/thread-1920713-1-1.html This is translated from the Chinese PC Suite and almost all options work.

Thank you for the reply. I will post an update after I will succeed with operating the software. For now it only pops-up the login screen and no features work.

I did check and this is not the problem
The problem lays with the need to KEEP PHONE DATA

I am still unable to use MiFlash to downgrade my phone. I will need the .tgz of the newer version? Or is there a way to alter the file to enable downgrade with keeping storage?
UPDATE:
I check with fastboot and my ARB version fits downgrade. I will try delete the lines that check for 'antirollback' and countinue with the flash.
New post will be after this.

New status is 'not allowed in locked state' error.

If I understand correctly - phone was never locked with "miflash_unlock".
If I use MiFlash Unlock - I will lose data(?). If I don't - I cannot flash ROM, and data is LOST.

Is there any way around this? The main task from the ROM-flash is to SAVE USER DATA.
