adb remount

Kayl88 can you help me? I also got the "Operation not permitted" at the dd-command.
Then I unplug and plug the device.
When enter the adb remount I got: "remount of system failed: Permission denied".
After that I still get the "Permission denied" at the dd command.
What can I do?

Is it save to reboot the device after deleting the /config/ and /data/miui files?
Thanks for any help.

Hey Kayl88,
yes, everything doublechecked. But solved that with the "operation not permitted".
I updated again with the updater-app to the latest miui 7.0.11.
After that the copy started.

BUT:
It stopped with a "segmentation fault" and the redmi was dead.
I guess the system tried to access something wile I wrote a new system.
I couldn't start again to write, because "busybox" was now unknown.

So really bad luck. Then I tried to "unbrick" with MiFlash via download-mode.
But got the "not enough space error".
Tried again with Fastboot-Mode, but not possible because because locked bootloader.
Wanted to try with update.zip via recovery-mode, but not possible, because I cannot copy the zip-file to the mobile.

For now, well, I'm not happy. :)

As I am not an Xiaomi expert: Can anybody tell me how to unlock the bootloader? Is there a tutorial for that?
Guess that is my last chance.

Thanks for help.

You have to enter download mode ( 4th method) http://en.miui.com/thread-13321-1-1.html

And then MiFlash will see it as COM port.. Then install fastboot ROM... Works on Windows only..

thanks ingbrzy. but already tried that. I got message like "not enough space". It started flashing but then stopped with that error. Do I need to wipe anything before?

I used the file from the Miui-forum where it was posted as stock-rom for ubricking.
I compared it now with the original fastboot-rom and it is the same. Same filesize and same file-date.
But nevertheless I will try the original one this evening.

But another question: What is the difference between download-mode, fastboot-mode and recovery-mode? Especially for the redmi3-device. on download-mode and fastboot mode the flash will both go via fastboot, but with another driver installed? Don't unterstand the difference between these three modes. Could you explain in short words?

Thanks for your help.

follow this tutorial to unbrick-reset at stock chinese version (language avaible: english, chinese) and then re-do this tutorial to have redmi 3 in multilanguage with root:
http://en.miui.com/thread-218644-1-1.html


About your question...
different mode -> different method to control smarthphone -> different command

example:
in download mode you can flash rom (extension .zip) with (for example) MiTools
in fastboot mode, you can flash rom (exension .tar) with another tools
in recovery mode, you can do different operation.. not only flash. for example, when are avaible a different not stock recovery (example CWM or TWRP) in recovery mode you can do flash, wipe, Nandroid backup and restore ed more..

search in internet.. you can find all information you need ;)

Hi Kayl88,

yes that is the thread I tried to flash to stock-standard-rom.
But as I wrote before: I get the message: "not enough space" when doing as described in the tutorial.

Thanks for your explanation about the modes. So the first screen with the buttons is the bootloader where i can jump in download-mode or fastboot-mode. Understood. Thanks.

I guess all that errors on flashing are Busybox related, right????
No busybox installed!!!! That's why!!!

To unbrick the REDMI 3, you need to flash with Miflash. I know the phone do not enter Download Mode, and is dead... that happen to me too. But after try and retry, and a "10sec press power" the phone reboot and a "Start" in Miflash do the miracle:
http://en.miui.com/thread-218644-1-1.html

Worked for me, and I guess I was the first to have it bricked...
Thanks to my partner (parfetto) for the TRY and RETRY issue... Rsrsrs.

Tried again in download-mode to flash the ido_xhdpi...tgz image. MiFlash 2015.10.28.0 started with flashing and then stopped with the message: "Für diesen Befehl ist nicht genügend Speicher verfügbar! 0x80070008: Max Buffer sector is 32" . This means: Not enough space for this operation.

About the download-mode: Which driver is installed? For me it is a "RELINK HS-USB Q-Loader 9008" on COM3. Is that the right one? Don't know what else could I try???

PMoto, you also had the not enough space error, right? What did you do to correct that?

Edit: The screen is black in download-mode, right?

Maybe i can help..
I use this drivers at PC.

https://mega.nz/#!sIkxEYoI!TnWqWCsx3F_2Y6F86PSNttr8jKVFFz6xCOuJrnsU-ME.

First i prepaire the Mi flash to flash the phone in Fastboot mode.
We know allways give the space error , so wen i was at that step (like if i was try to flash by normal fastboot) i turn off the phone pressing 3 button and click FLASH at exactly time the phone gets off.
Miracly the phone begin to flash and finish 100% working.
I have used the official rom IDO IMAGES from the oficial page.

Hmmh. Thanks parfetto. I think I don't unterstand how you turn off the phone while flashing.
So you prepare the MiFlash Programme and open the correct folder of the rom.
Then you bring your Redmi3 into download-mode?
And then? You turn off the phone and start flashing? When I try hat this way the phone is simply off and is not flashing. Tried it several times. Tried it with the official IDO image and also with the Mobilecity image.
Could you explain further the thing with the turn off of the mobile?

- turn phone in download mode (power off it, press vol+ and power and when appear mi logo press only vol+ and you are in recovery mode, in recovery mode tap on "download" and don't touch again phone)
- plug in phone
- open miflash select correct folder, press "refresh" and you can see com port (example com 16) in the miflas window
- press flash
- wait and ONLY when you read in miflash windows "operation complete" you can unplug phone and reboot it by press power button

good luck man

Yes, thats it for all who have recovery mode.
