So I needed to root my Redmi Notice 5 professional and set up a customized ROM however sadly I bricked it within the course of. It began when TWRP (3.3.1-0-whyred) instructed me to enter a password that did not exist. Googled it, “default_password” did not work, my MI ID password did not work and apart from that there was NO password used on the entire telephone (did a manufacturing facility reset earlier than I began messing with it).
I simply pressed cancel as a result of I assumed it was a bug, wiped the telephone with “format information” in TWRP and put in Resurrection Remix OS V7 + magisk. Wiped the cache, rebooted, carried out the primary time setup and all the things was dandy… Apart from the truth that as a substitute of 64gb of storage I solely had 16.
So I attempted it once more. And once more. Did not work. Then I discovered a number of folks on-line with the identical telephone and the identical downside who stated you need to change /information to a different file system after which change it again. It was f2s2 so I modified it to ext4, rebooted to restoration, modified it again to f2s2, rebooted to restoration once more et voilà, I used to be again to 64gb of storage. I did the usual TWRP manufacturing facility reset, put in the ROM once more and booted again to the OS. I bought to the splash display screen however after loading for a couple of minutes it takes me again to restoration mode. Now I am caught.
After putting in a FW-less ROM of MIUI 9 (did not wanna threat utilizing a rom with FW since triggering anti rollback on Xiaomi telephones causes exhausting brick) it says this after I boot it: “Encryption was interrupted and cannot be accomplished. In consequence, the info in your telephone is not accessible“. There is a reset telephone button that simply takes me again to restoration.
I attempted three completely different restoration instruments (TWRP, Pink Wolf and Orange Fox), wiped all the things a number of instances, put in RR OS a couple of instances, tried altering the file format of /information to all of the completely different codecs and set up it once more and eventually I downloaded a Xiaomi MIUI ROM with FW however that solely takes me to the “encryption failed” display screen as nicely.
Sooooo… Time to purchase a brand new telephone or can this one be saved?
