Hello all.
Pls i need to remove custom rom from a MI device.

I didn't install it myself and i don't want to break the thing.

I just want to go back to the official rom and undo any magisk magic that they've put on the device
Fastboot rom method.

But be sure the previous owner deleted his mi account details from the phone and mi cloud

You can't, if your OEM didn't include a band in the Chipset/modem when configuring it for the region it is meant for, forget it.

Reasons we always advice people to buy Global Versions.
I have the global version,but can't lock the LTE band without root access, which mtk devices can do seamlessly, honestly I'm beginning to reconsider my position on Snapdragon soc it sucks

I don't know what you mean by lock LTE Band but if what you are trying to say is select 4G only, it is there and you aren't asking proper questions.

It's a mi 9 and I've signed in with my own mi account.
Do I need to remove that before attempting to flash the rom?

Don't relock bootloader oooo. Else, your phone system will get destroyed. Rendering it unusable unless you unlock it again.

From one problem to another.
Now most of the sensors are not working; light, accelerometer, gyroscope.
Someone said something about flashing a persist.img file but i don't know what that is and I don't want to accidentally kill my phone because of sensors.
Any help?

Only solution, flash persist.img.

Persist.img can be located in your fastboot ROM. Extract it and flash.

It can be flashed in two ways (do step 2 first):

1. Via custom recovery (I know you don't have it anymore since you already flashed a fastboot ROM).

2. Copy the persist.img to your adb folder. Open adb fastboot and type these commands>

fastboot devices (press enter)

fastboot flash persist persist.img (press enter)

If it flashes successfully, you issue will be solved. If it doesn't, you'll have to first flash a custom recovery and then boot to it to flash the persist.img

At the end of this, I would have become a super hacker person.
Thanks.

BTW, the flashing of the custom rom ended with an error message. The third one in the image. I wonder why that happened and if it is related

Thanks for your help so far.

Am i on the right path to installing the custom recovery with these instructions?

For the part where it says to go into recovery mode, i presume that means I enter the "fastboot Reboot" line, press enter, then go to recovery. Is this correct?

Finally, will i likely suffer data loss during the process?
