I heard flashing twrp on redmi 5 plus wipes internal storage. How true is this? Want to root asap...no strength to backup


Yes because the phone is encrypted, you would have to format data which automatically erases all your data.

Hello guys

My windows 8.1 pc only charges my android phones, I can't transfer files from phone to pc and vice versa.

I also tried toggling the usb options on the android devices,but it doesn't move from "Charge only" to "File transfer" option on my phones.

This mostly happens when the phone driver fails to properly install on the pc.

Here's what to do:

Try another usb, then another port on ur pc.

Optionally, you can use Xender connect to pc. It equally does the job.

I have tried everything you stated,apart from connecting with the Xender part, and nothing still works.

BTW,all the usb cables for the various phones I tried including the one I use on my Redmi Note 4 were all working properly before I downgraded from Windows 10 to 8.1.

I'm having the same issue with my RN4 MTK version since last year after either June or August update.

Even after several OTA updates the problem still persists.

Don't think this is meant to work, the modem cannot install it's drivers on your phone,its meant to work on pcs only. You know an interface always pop up on PC for you to connect your modem, that can't pop up on your phone because its an 'exe' file.

I thought it's one of the features of otg enabled phones. I've seen people using their modem connected via OTG for internet and it would be possible for me to do same thing. I have 3 sim cards and one is specifically for internet and the other two for calls, and that explains why I had always wanted to use modem rather than inserting and removing my sim cards randomly.

TWEAKING, MODDING, FLASHING ETC

what is the simple way to fix "Display Burn" "screen burn" or "Screen Retention" On Redmi Note 4 ?

Lolz. The Xiaomi touts don finally pursue ppl make dem open another sister thread wen the purpose of the former one has been defeated.

Abeg make una no dey post links to the other thread, wen ppl ask questions. It's better and easier to just copy the posts directly from there if the issue had been previously thrashed out in the past. This will help to create an archive dedicated to xiaomi nodding etc

As a teaser and to launch this new thread, why don't you create a detailed post that will address various possible How-to backup files, apps + data before tweaking or flashing roms eg Titanium Backup, using Adb, etc. This is the major reason most ppl feel discouraged to take that huge leap of faith.

Ordering battery was on my mind o, but there are several models of the batteries out there,so I'm a bit confused.

But I think the BN41 battery is for the RN4 MTK...or what do you think?

Am certain modems can't work on phones generally.
Re: ### Xiaomi Thread For Tweaking Of Phones & Help Spot ### by CuteMaro(m): 11:27pm On Aug 26
I think a post should be made on general tweaking, modding & common problems to encounter and fixes..that way one can easily achieve d main purpose of this thread.

Also how to flash custom roms, unbrick d device for those that know how to. This will go a long way to help.
