Here we are using a modded version of the MIUI ROM or you can say Miui ROMs without firmware. All credit goes to the XDA developer AL_IRAQI for releasing these Modded versions of MIUI ROMS.
By using this moded version we downgraded our MIUI 10 8.7.12 Redmi Note 5 pro to MIUI 9 Stable 9.5.14, and that too without bricking the phone. The Proof is in the video which you can find at the end of this guide. So let take a look how to o Downgrade Redmi Note 5 Pro MIUI 10 and ByPass Anti Roll-back.
What is Anti Rollback
As per the Xaiomi Announcement, the new Verified Boot changes in Android 8.0 Oreo will prevent a device from booting should it be rolled back to an earlier firmware. The new feature is called Rollback Protection. So if your phone is flashed with older software, you (and your data) are protected from whatever potential security vulnerabilities may have been present in earlier versions. And if someone tried to roll back your phone will be bricked.
Which Redmi Note 5 Pro Device are affected with Anti Roll
Global Beta ROM
1. If you have updated to MIUI 10 Beta ROM 8.7.6 or above, you can flash all ROMs after 8.7.6 (including 8.7.6), but you can not downgrade to Beta ROM 8.7.5 or ROM previously.
2. If you are on Beta ROM 8.7.5 or ROM previously, you can flash your device using all those previous ROMs.
Global Stable ROM
1. If you are on Stable ROM V 9.5.19 or ROM above, you can flash all Stable ROMs after V 9.5.19 (including V 9.5.19), but you can not flash your device to Stable ROM V9.5.17 or ROM previously.
2. If you are on Stable ROM V 9.5.17 or ROM previously, you can flash your device using all those ROMs.
So it means if you are on above MIUI 10 Beta 8.7.5 then you can’t downgrade your phone. And if you are on the MIUI 9 Stable 9.5.19, then you are in anti roll back feature. Don’t think about the downgrade.
Anti Rollback started from these versions MIUI 10 8.7.12 and MIUI 9 9.5.19. If you are on these versions, then there is no chance to downgrade.
Steps to By Pass Anti Roll-back and Downgrade Redmi note 5 Pro
Warning: Technobuzz.net is not responsible for any damage that might happen to your phone during this process.
As we mentioned earlier if you want to downgrade than you can downgrade your phone to the previous version with the modded ROPMS. Which comes without firmware and that will not brick your phone.
But there is a catch once you go back to the Previous version don’t try to update your phone with OTA update. This will update the firmware your phone and your phone will be bricked. Just stick to the modded versions if you want to use older MIUI builds.
Warning By the developer of the Modded MIUI ROMs:-
- After flashing any of the builds above you can’t go and flash FULL Miui ROMs to downgrade, just stick to my modded versions if you want to use older MIUI builds
- No matter which Anti (3/4) you have, you can flash any of those ROMs with TWRP Custom Recovery
- Thodoesn’ts doesnt affect your phone bootloader in any way, so you can roll back to your old ROM after Flashing any of the above builds
- One more time, those ROMs wont remove or change your anti, if you come from anti 3 it will stay anti 3 after flashing, and same goes for anti 4
- Again, if your phone is anti 4, you cant just simply go and flash FULL older ROM, even after flashing Modded builds, so stick with my builds
You can flash these builds only with the TWRP recovery. Don’t know how to do that check out the video below.
