Hi. Thanks for sharing. For those users who are going to try this, please take backup of your data.

Can you please help in below issue.

My mobile is showing notification that update is pending, I reboot my MI MAX when updating it stuck on SCREEN LOCK, I didnot create SCREEN, PATTERN/PIN p**word.
I contacted customer care, they send me below suggestion.

3. If yourphone is not bound to any account, this feature is a last resort as it willdelete all data on phone. It is mainly for mobile phone users to ensureinformation security (wiping all data from phone). You can enter Recovery Modeto clear user data (This will clear your messages, contacts, call records,account number and other personal information, and analog SD card data) can be.(Clear Methods: In the off state, the phone click the volume down + powerbutton to enter recovery mode, then the volume down for the selection, thevolume is confirmed, move the cursor to the recovery, click on the volume, waitabout 10 seconds, you will see green robot, then click the power button, youcan see the recovery screen, select wipe data / factory reset, then select yes,and wait for the system to reboot).

However by holding power Key and Volume Down button, It goes to FASTBOOT MODE, showin image of bunny holding Data Cable. And nothing else to click.

My Question:-  Is MI MAX already have Recovery Mode to wipe cache data, OR I have to follow instruction which you shared above.

Thanks in Advance

Can you please help in below issue.

once I was also stuck with this......but you can't do anything until you are having that password. Try to remember out all the passwords you created at the starting when you had buy the phone. Don't try for Flashing it will not resolve your problem
