Thank you for the tests.
I got to the history of testings and I have noticed the problem is with my mobile provider.
By the way: I was using speedtest.net for years and yesterday, for the first time, I noticed a history of test is stored for my device :) It can be reached by a second left icon...
Can anyone test the speed of LTE on 8.2.3 and Redmi 3s ? Mine was always around 8-9 MB (MB not Mb) on 8.2.3 it decreased to around 1 MB :(
I don't know whether it is 8.2.3 case or there is an another cause.
There is always a risk and taking the risk is on your side ;)
But if you just shortcut the cable in the way described nothing bad should happen.

In case you would have open your phone I suggest to...
I was also trying the use of cable described but with no effect except destroying quite pretty good cable.

What was exactly the state of your bricked phone? - were you be able to enter Fastboot mode (picture attached to be sure) as in tommyboy7's case or the phone was just dark and stone cold as in my case?

Samsa, you are my hero :)
The telephone is brought back to life.
I've done everything the same the way you described, no experimentation.
I used Windows 7 64 bit, 2016.08.30 MiFlash and 220.127.116.11. MALMIDE rom for flashing after entering EDL.
There was neither SD card nor SIM card in the...
Your post is exactly what I was waiting for. It is precise, detailed and intelligent.
I will be able to try the method tomorrow, as soon as I get results I will let you know what has happened.
By the way: I have the same 18.104.22.168. MALMIDE rom and 2016.08.30 MiFlash version prepared...
1. I have bought brand new Redmi 3s 3/32GB english/china language version and I've asked Xiaomi for permission to unlock bootloader. After three days I've got the permission and I've unlocked the bootloader.
2. After that I have attempted to flash global stable rom using fastboot rom, EDL mode...
