    Note:This tutorial is for computer systems WinXP / Win7 / Win8.1 / Win10 / Win2012, does not support Apple MAC systems and Linux!, this tutorial is for the vast majority of MediaTek MTK smartphone!

    Here I will show how we flash fastboot ROM in Redmi Note 3

    Preparation:

    1. VCOM Driver Download
    2. SP Flash Tool SP_Flash_Tool_exe_Windows_v5.1520.00.000.zip (Download v5.1516.00 if this one doesn't work)
    3. Fastboot ROM
    1. Redmi Note 3
    2. Laptop or Desktop PC
    3. Xiaomi USB cable


    Notes:
    1. Please Back Up your files before flashing Fastboot, as it will erase all your data!
    2. For user with Window 8 and above, you should read here about driver.
    Procedures:
    Step 1:
    Download and install VCOM Driver MTK v1.0.14.exe .
    Step 2: Power off your Redmi Note 3 (make sure it has at least 50% battery)
    Step 3: Download Fastboot ROM and extract it into your PC.
    Step 4: Download and extract SP Flash Tools on your PC.
    Step 5: Right click on Flash_tool.exe and click on "Run as adminstrator".
    Step 6: launch SP Flash Tool and ensure that this is as follows .

    Step 7: Locate the Scatter file named "MT6592_Android_scatter.txt" and copy in signed_bin folder. It can be found in images folder.

    Step 8: Make sure that the red box under the tab is in "download" Mode!
    Step 9: Click on the "download" button, and then plug the USB cable to your computer!
    Step 10: let the phone completely off, and then press the volume down key, then the USB data cable into the phone ! This time the computer will find your device, when the progress become yellow update will begin to move! This is when you can release the volume down key finger up.

    Step 11: A big green tick will appear when flashing progress is finish.

    1. Have you copied MT6592_Android_scatter.txt" to signed_bin folder ?
    [​IMG]
    1. Are you trying to flash developer ROM ? (I personally have flashed developer ROM but it should work with China Stable)
    2. Make sure you have followed Step 6
    3. Use this SP_Flash_Tool_exe_Windows_v5.1516.00

    Can you add Multi Language to Dev Rom? Or it is Multilanguage?

    • Stable ROMs and Developer ROMs are all made by MIUI Official
    And It is not Multilanguage ROM just English/Chinese but you can easily install Google apps so It's not much of an issue

    So, if I have a tgz, whitch contains signed files, official miui rom, I can install it with SP tools, even if I have a locked bootloader? 7.0.9.0 what I have now it's horrible... My signal drops, rotation works just in some apps, in camera I can't make landscape photos, vibration I think it's on maximum. I want to get rid of this ROM version... but I don't want to brick my phone. What do you recommend? It's safe to flash this way? Can I brick it, or it will gave me error, and thats all, it will boot, in the actual rom that I have?

    Tempting! I was planning to wait untill I have TWRP running (which can't take that long), but now you got me thinking .... Could you give some examples of the better ui and new customization? Thanks :)

    Yesterday, China Developer ROM launched, but NOT for our Redmi Note3 :(
    Why Xiaomi doing this to Redmi Note 3 ? The boot unlocked code still didn't received even applied for a week now.
