What Is EDL Mode?

If you are newbie user then probably EDL mode may be new word for you. But if you are involved in rooting and flashing firmware then absolutely not.

We already arranged a full detail post for Xiaomi EDL mode, so you may read it from HERE.

In short, EDL mode is also known as emergency mode for mobile. Technically all the Xiaomi devices come with EDL mode option. If you want to install or update your own Xiaomi or Redmi phone then you have many options to flash new stock ROM on the device using Recovery Mode or using fastboot mode. Both methods have some limitations like Recovery ROM can be used only to update higher version and you can’t downgrade Xiaomi version.

Same as if the bootloader of the device is already unlocked then you may boot the device into fastboot mode and then can install stock rom using Mi flash tool easily. Both methods can be perform if the device is ON condition and you are able to access your device setting.

But what if the bootloader of Redmi note 5 pro is locked or Device stuck on MI account verification screen or device stuck on Mi logo or bootloop or you are unable to boot the device into fastboot mode? In that type of critical situation EDL mode is the only solution which can help you to unbrick the device again.

Just boot the device into EDL mode or emergency downloading mode and flash MIUI fastboot rom /firmware using Mi flash tool. It will fix the all existing errors or you can recovery your dead phone again.

It’s really must to understand that EDL mode flashing is an universal method for all Xiaomi and redmi devices. But EDL booting process may be different for different devices. For some devices, you can use EDL boot command but problem is that now a days edl command don’t work for all latest Xiaomi smartphones. So test point is the easiest and perfect method to boot any Xiaomi phone into edl mode using test terminals.

So now the point is that where is the Redmi note 5 pro EDL mode PINOUT or EDL test points?
