MIUI ROM Unbrick Tweak for Redmi Note 5 ARB Error

MIUI ROM Unbrick Tweak for Redmi Note 5 ARB Error 1

This is a modified MIUI ROM used to fix error on Redmi Note 5 Pro/Ai/China caused by Anti-roll Back Protection mechanism. This is not a standard MIUI 10 ROM. Please use this only to unbrick your Redmi Note 5 (codename Whyred) device.

Some of Whyred users getting such a weird error when downgrading the MIUI version their device. Such an error also exists when users switching from the official MIUI ROM to a custom ROM or vice versa. Again, this is due to ARB error.

ARB is put in place by Xiaomi to prevent users rolling back to older version of the ROM which “they say” it less secure.

However, such a protection mechanism caused dizziness to some users. Even worst, the error caused by the ARB protection is not a usual one. It is not a common device break. Instead, it is a hard brick which cannot be fixed through Fastboot mode.

Users need to either fix it through EDL/Test point method or bring the device to the nearest Mi service point.

  3. Bom dia,
    Estes dois arquivos, conduzo em uma só pasta e depois recorto e colo em Disco “C” no PC?
    São eles que vão para o MI Flesh?

  4. Hello, I have lashed my RN5 Pro in EDL mode with these 2 files anti_test_note5.zip & anti_test_note5.z01, after that my display was dark, it makes noises again but no longer.
    I can’t flash an original Rom, all just error messages.
    Does anyone know help ????
    What exactly does this anti_test_note5.z01 do?

  5. Hello thanks for the help, my english is not good.
    I tried to flash them all in EDL mode.
    And also in the Fastboot: on the PC with MiFlash 2018
    whyred_global_images_V12.0.2.0.PEIMIXM_20201224.0000.00_9.0_global
    whyred_global_images_9.6.27_20190627.0000.00_9.0_global
    whyred_global_images_V9.2.4.0.NEIMIEK_20180210.0000.00_7.1_global
    whyred_global_images_V9.6.4.0.OEIMIFD_20180828.0000.00_8.1_global
    whyred_global_images_V11.0.3.0.PEIMIXM_20191108.0000.00_9.0_global

    The mobile phone is recognized in the PC
    Once as Redmi Note 5
    Once as ID 1 42e14965 Fastboot whyred (Brand Unknow) (Model Unknow)
    Once as an Android bootloader interface
    The bootloader is locked says MiUnlock

    Then errors like:
    Error: end of file eof reached 0x80070026 receiving hello packet
    Error: Fatal error 0x800ffff send confiqure command
    Error: is not allowed in lock state
