    Are you able to access the recovery mode or fastboot, by holding the power button and volume down (volume up for recovery) button for several secconds, or is it entirely powerless?

    Hi, any new info how to fix ? I did 'fastboot erase aboot' and now no recovery or fastboot, miflash doesnt find device no more and win7 spams me with format partition 5x every minute.

    EDL mode might still work, MiFlash if you get there (Device Manager shows phone as Qualcomm something in ports).

    EDL mode? Any instructions somewhere? Yes I see it in dev manager as Qualcomm MMC Storage USB Device
    Edit: Ok read little bit EDL mode, but all instructions assume working device.
    I have no way of telling if its switched on or off, now win plays sound like connecting-disconnecting every 15sec and dev manager shows nothing.

    Are you able to go in Fastbootmode by pressing Volume down and On?

    Not sure how, i got there once after bootloop. You could try turn phone off, press volume + and - same time, connect USB-cable to computer and release buttons. Phone stays black, but that Qualcomm QHSUSB port should appear in device manager under ports and MiFlash can write rom.

    I checked phone in linux and it has total 25 partitions, last 5 I can access and there are files.
    Now I need some expert what where to copy.
    In win7 I tried everything I found in net, nothing works.

    Interesting .. things are getting better.
    EDL mode I did not get because fastboot nor adb recognize device.
    I tried older version of MiFLash_v20160401 and it installed some driver, then I managed to flash cancro_global_images_7.2.24_20170224.0000.00_6.0_global
    1st it was booting really long time, now screen doesn't work, only side and bottom buttons work. Can't get forward from Mi8 welcome screen.
    Now I shall continue to find working rom.

    Solved .. I set phone to fastboot, in Linux I flashed cancro_global_images_V8.2.1.0.MXDMIDL_20170111.0000.00_6.0_global
    Then I had to wait 13 min for those small dots moving before welcome screen. At first screen was not responding, then it started working and it seems fine now.
    Why didn't I see warning anywhere that I have to wait 15min after flashing ? Maybe it worked 1st time and I just didn't wait long enough.
