I installed this rom here: http://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/6-1-28-29.29731/

It's Android Marshmallow, I flashed it through Recovery, checked it out, and decided to go back to Stable rom, this one: http://en.miui.com/download-240.html

And now I can't flash stable rom back!
If I try to flash it with MiFlash Tool, I get error: FAILED (remote: partition table doesn't exist)
If I try to flash rom using Mi PC Suite, it gets stuck at: Sending...NON-HLOS.bin

Now I'm really screwed. I don't have any roms on my Mi4. And I can only go to Recovery and FastBoot.
I can't flash any rom and my Mi4 is basicly bricked!!!

I assume that Marshmallow changed / merged partitions so now I can't flash Stable rom that is KitKat!

What can I do? How can I flash back Stable KitKat rom if I only have recovery and fastboot available?

Help me please, help me fast!!!

Unpack stable tgz package and edit flash_all.bat file with unix line ending compatible text editor (EditPad Lite should work).

Code:
fastboot %* getvar product 2>&1 | findstr /r /c:"^product: *MSM8974" || echo Missmatching image and device
fastboot %* getvar product 2>&1 | findstr /r /c:"^product: *MSM8974" || exit /B 1
fastboot %* getvar board_version 2>&1 | findstr /r /c:"^board_version: *4.4" && echo Missmatching board version
fastboot %* getvar board_version 2>&1 | findstr /r /c:"^board_version: *4.4" && exit /B 1
fastboot %* getvar board_version 2>&1 | findstr /r /c:"^board_version: *5.[0-9]" && echo Missmatching board version
fastboot %* getvar board_version 2>&1 | findstr /r /c:"^board_version: *5.[0-9]" && exit /B 1

:: Insert next line to write partition table
fastboot %* flash partition "%~dp0images\gpt_both0.bin" || @echo "Flash partition" && exit /B 1

fastboot %* flash tz %~dp0images\tz.mbn
fastboot %* flash dbi %~dp0images\sdi.mbn
fastboot %* flash sbl1 %~dp0images\sbl1.mbn
fastboot %* flash rpm %~dp0images\rpm.mbn
fastboot %* flash aboot %~dp0images\emmc_appsboot.mbn
fastboot %* erase boot
fastboot %* erase DDR
fastboot %* flash misc %~dp0images\misc.img
fastboot %* flash modem+modem1 %~dp0images\NON-HLOS.bin
fastboot %* flash system+system1 %~dp0images\system.img
fastboot %* flash cache %~dp0images\cache.img
fastboot %* flash userdata %~dp0images\userdata.img
fastboot %* flash recovery %~dp0images\recovery.img
fastboot %* flash boot+boot1 %~dp0images\boot.img
fastboot %* reboot
You need to add fastboot flash partition line after getvars and then MiFlash.
