First and foremost, you will have to install the Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC. This is the official ADB and Fastboot binary provided by Google and is the only recommended one. So download it and then extract it to any convenient location on your PC. Doing so will give you the platform-tools folder, which will be used throughout this guide.

[UPDATE: Try out this tweak to enable USB Debugging quickly]. You will now have to enable USB Debugging on your device so that it is recognizable by the PC in ADB mode.

  1. Hi, everybody, i have the same issue with my redmi note11.
    But i can’t enable usb debug…when i put the button to be active, it wants me around 10s to be confirmed…but it’s not happen…the redmi restarted again.

    Could you please tell me another way to enabling usb debug.

    1. Hi Ekaterina, unfortunately, that is the only way of enabling USB Debugging. You could try accessing the settings menu from the notification panel instead of the app drawer, this will save you a few extra valuable seconds.

    2. Dear Ekaterina,
      so far I only managed to enable USB debugging.
      I read a tip on the interent and it worked: Try to warm your phone as this will slow down the system before rebooting.
      I filled up a hot water bottle, wrapped it in a towel and put my phone on it for about 5-10 minutes ( not to overheat the phone). Then i tried debugging it 5 times and the fifth time it worked as the phone really slowed down ! Tomorrow I will try to do the ADB and regain my phone!
      Good look everyone!

    1. Hi Aarav, you do not have to manually find that Qualcomm file. Just execute the given command and it will automatically remove that file from your device. However, if you still want to manually get hold of that file, then you will first have to Enable Show System App in the Settings > Apps menu as it is a system app.

  2. My phone says success but I don’t know if it is gone. I had to do a factory reset my phone to stop rebooting. After factory reset I did this process. It says successful but how to be sure? Please help urgently.

    1. Hi Mate, I haven’t come across any issues after removing this process. However, I have still updated my guide with the command to re-install that process if something goes wrong.

    1. Hi Merlin, there’s every possibility that Xiaomi will fix this in a future update. However, they haven’t made public any estimated timeline for the same

  3. Thank you very much. Your solution have worked. For 10 days no reboot issue. I have one quick question. Can you provide a link to gcam app that supports all lens or at least support wide angle lens of redmi note 11.? Thanks
