Hi guys, I'm afraid I've broken my phone. When wiping all data through the MI3's recovery something went wrong. It got stuck at 98% when wiping. After 15 minutes or so I forced a reboot. Now the phone is dead: the screen stays black and it won't turn on. When connected to the USB of my computer, something still responds though. Windows reports the connection of a "Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 (COM3)". I did some reading to fix this. I tried downloading MiFlash and flashing a fastboot ROM. The process stopts almost instantly with this message: "Einde van bestand is bereikt.(0x80070026: Receiving hello packet)" That first sentence is Dutch for "End of file reached". All in all nothing happens and I'm left with a brick. I'm out of ideas. I would appreciate any insights you guys might have to fix my phone. [addition] WCDMA (Snapdragon) 64GB version Mi-3 OK guys: the problem has solved itself. I let the battery drain overnight. This morning, the LED of the Xiaomi would start pulsing when connected to USB. It did not, however, register as a Qualcomm device on my computer anymore. I just let it sit for about an hour and all of a sudden it came back to life: it automatically switched on and booted into android. I'm a happy camper. No more premature forced reboots when updating for me... in fact, I think I'll stay away from updating the ROM for a while alltogether *grin* Hurray for the Mi-3!
