  13. Thanks Sidharth for the detailed guide.

    My phone shows up in my PC but the files don’t show up. This has been happening. I changed the usb wire and ports on the PC but still can’t work. How do I then copy the recovery file to my phone? It’s too big for email. Can dropbox or google drive take the big file?

  14. none of the above works. No prompt for the Erase and Update in the “Choose Update Package” and phone has a message saying cannot down to

    After “Hold Volume UP + Power button”, there is no “Advanced wipe”, nor “Install Option ” THERE IS “Wipe Data” “Reboot” “Connect with MIAssistant” in the Main Menu. THIS IS UNDER MI-Recovery 3.0 in my MAX 2

    if I choose the “Wipe Data”, and if I don’t see the home of Recovery for the “Install Option” ………….. then I am stuck with a brick phone.

    I have my phone unlocked and using Fastboot, once connect my Type-C to my phone, I receive the following “Try connect in normal mode first then switch” what is this meant ,and what can I do ?? Thanks
