      Flash it Again via recovery and this time remove the SIM and skip the WIFI setup at the first boot.

    Hi Siddharth,

    I tried your method, and it worked. Unfortunately, the phone settings remembered my wifi password and my phone was locked to that username/password screen.
    I then wiped all data using recovery mode and was only able to flash the v6 file via FastBoot.
    I was then able to change the setting in the build.prop file.

    However now, I don’t have any apps on the phone, not even Google Play Store. Is there any way I can revery back to MIUI v5?
