Complete Guide How to Flash the Latest Poco X3 Pro (Vayu) Firmware

Flashing firmware can be used to update ROM. The goals vary from repairing hard bricks, soft bricks, bootloop / Android cannot enter the system, erasing the entire system contents so that the phone looks like new again, or it can also be to downgrade and upgrade the Android version.
 
If the Xiaomi smartphone that will be flashed is in hard brick, soft brick or bootloop condition and cannot enter the system or there are other things the user wants (eg want to clean install / delete all contents smartphone to return to like new or downgrade and upgrade the Android system) then you must use the fastboot firmware flashing method. While flashing OTA firmware can be used to upgrade the ROM that is being used without losing data and existing applications. However, flashing OTA firmware can also be used to downgrade the Android system, it’s just that all of your data in the internal memory will be lost.

Poco X3 Pro (Vayu) Firmware Flashing Prerequisite

  

Pay attention to the following points before flashing :
  • Download Xiaomi USB Driver here and install on your PC
  • Specially flashing the firmware using the fastboot method, make sure the Xiaomi smartphone to be flashed is already in an unlocked bootloader condition The tutorial on how to check the bootloader status will be explained below later. Another alternative if the bootloader is still locked, you can activate Emergency Download / EDL mode (you can search for EDL mode tutorials on the internet)
  • Make sure your Poco X3 Pro (Vayu) battery is full, or at least above 80% just in case during flashing an interruption occurs, whether intentional or not, which results in your smartphone not being able to charge, unable to connect to a computer or laptop, does not respond to the power button, suddenly shuts down, etc.
  • If your Poco X3 Pro (Vayu) is not in a hard brick, soft brick or bootloop condition, do a backup by moving important data from the internal memory because after flashing the fastboot firmware, all your data will be deleted. External memory should not need to be backed up. But if you are in doubt, to be safer before flashing, you can remove it first
  • If your Poco X3 Pro (Vayu) is not in a hard brick, soft brick or bootloop condition, enable USB Debugging. The trick, go to Settings < About Phone then tap MIUI Version ten times until developer mode is active, then return to the initial Settings menu then look for Developer Options in the Additional Settings menu. There you can slide the screen down until you find the USB Debugging option then tick to enable it
  • Make sure you are using the latest 64-bit version of Windows. The reason is because the latest version of the Mi Flash Tool that we will use only supports 64 bits, whereas if it is forced to run on 32 bit versions of Windows there is a possibility that problems will occur when flashing fastboot firmware later.
