    Hi, bertarobert73, good hint. Thank You.
    I tryed MIBeta yesterday already, did not help.
    Disconnecting the batery sounds like a good idea, but then i don't see the QDLoader 9008 in Devicemanager.
    I am connecting with a working USB Cabel straight to the PC.
    I'll try using a different PC to night.

    PS:
    What lead to the situation (maby it gives some one else but me a clou):
    I was on MIUI Stabel 7.5 Global from Vendor.
    Bootloader unlocked. (MIUnlock Tool said: Nothing to do, bootloader already unlocked)
    Flashed TWRP via fastboot and adb. Worked like a charm.
    In TWRP flashed SuperSU for root. (File: UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.79-20161211114519.zip)
    Rebooted to System. Root worked like a charm.
    Then reboot to recovery.
    In TWRP again: flashed miui_HM3SGlobal_V8.0.3.0.MALMIDG_e67fb5fade_6.0.zip
    flasched SuperSu again.
    Wiped Cache.
    Rebooted to system.... and WAM: black like outer space!

    dowload this rom,first try recovery rom,if not work try full flash(QDLoader 9008)EDL mode.
    When you dowload fasboot rom i think you must add .tgz extencion to the downloaded rom and after that you can extracted twice if my remember is good.
    you can flash only LAND type of rom for redmi 3s
    http://xiaomiadvices.com/download-miui-8-6616-china-developer-rom-recoveryfastboot/

    land_images_6.6.16_20160523.0000.23_6.0_cn_066bbf4205 add .tgz

    like this
    land_images_6.6.16_20160523.0000.23_6.0_cn_066bbf4205.tgz
    and
    extract
    extract with winrar of other ectractor.
    after that flash the rom with MIFlash Beta !

    Hi, Thanxs!
    tryed it out, no luck.
    No matter which Version of MIFlash i use, Beta, Beta2, MiFlash 15.10.28, MiFlash 2016.08.30, always the same.
    can not read from port COM3.
    DriverSignature Testing from WIN10 is disabled...
    ....
    Ok. I made my self a deep flash cabel. With that i could switch the EDL mode on and off.
    Off no device found in Devicemanager.
    On QDLoader 9008 on port COM3 found.

    But no flashing!

    I think it dosent event get to the point of trying to flash any ting, because ist stops even before that.
    ...
    can not read from port COM3.
    ...

    so, still dead. Bricked.

    Yep. Me too.
    I tryed different kables, different USB Ports, different PC..... Nothing.

    Well, all under win10. Mabey i'll try to finde me a Win7 PC.

    I read somewhere something about a com Port sniffer.... Perhaps that will give me a hint about whats wrong....

    Hi Helge,
    As you are in EDL mode
    You need to set the device tree to the flashable image:see Fastboot.jpg
    Keep device tree as short as possible, miflash does not like long devive trees.

    Hi Everyone,
    tanxs again for your help.... so far still no luck! :-(

    I change to an WIN7 PC and did the short device tree (as befor ) but... cannot read hello package from com port.

    Here is a txt file with the protokoll from a COM Port sniffer i used to monitor the communication to the device:
    Maybe, someone with more and deeper knowledge than me, can extrakt some usefull hint???

    ok... so here are my findings:

    the Problem seams to be, that i seam to need a verry specific 7.x ROM.
    I could flash Fastboot-ROMS land_global_ 7.1.5 and 7.5 Versions of MIUI.... but after succsessfully flashing (both on an win7 64 and on an win10 64 PC), the phone still was dead. Well the red charging LED at the bottom under the "home" soft button blinked, whenever i pressed the power button.
    Besides that, nothing!

    I cann succsessfully confirm the working of the TestPoint Method to enter EDL, though! Great work to you, who figured that out!

    The device is a redmi 3s 3Gb 32 GB, without the LTE 800 band, bought from gearbest. I read some where, that some vendors flash thier own rom, wich seams to be the problem here. Since no other rom seams to work!

    Maybe some one has an idea how to circumvent that problem?

    Is there a method, to flash a recovery rom in EDL? Maybe that helps to clean this specific device of mine?

    Thanys for your help!

    Hi everybody!

    IT WORKS!

    The blinking of the red charging LED should have given me the hint.
    After flashing 7.1 and then 7.5.9 global that was "new".
    If you are there, you've won!
    I thought my battery was fully charged. Wrong. It was so empty, the device could not even boot anny more. Just charge it e Viola!
    Now i even get the official OTA updates for 8.1.1!

    So: case solved!

    Thanx everybody for your hints and advice!

    If you get to EDL, just choose right Rom, or try a few, eventualy youl will win!!!

    I am flabberghasted and over joyed!
