STEP 1: Download Android SDK

install adb platform tools windows

To begin with, download and install the Android SDK Platform Tools. This is the official ADB binary file provided by Google and is used to execute ADB and Fastboot Commands. So download and then extract it to any convenient location on your PC. Doing so shall give you the platform-tools folder, which we will be using throughout this guide.

STEP 2: Download Poco F5 Fastboot ROM

Next up, download the Fastboot ROM for your device. As for this guide, I am using Poco F5 V14.0.4.0.TMRMIXM Fastboot ROM Global version. You are free to try any version of your choice, but it is recommended to try the newer builds only. To download the firmware, you may use the official MIUI Forum.

If that is inaccessible, you may also take the help of a third-party site such as Xiaomi Firmware Updater. Furthermore, if you wish to understand the Xiaomi Fastboot firmware version, you may refer to our comprehensive guide on What is MIUI Fastboot ROM for Xiaomi, Mi, Redmi, and Poco Devices. Or here’s the instruction in short:

  •– Firmware version
  • T – Android version (T-> Android 13).
  • MR – Smartphone model code (LM= Poco F4)
  • MI – Firmware build type (CN for China | IN for India | MI for Global | EU for Europe)
  • XM – Firmware version code​

Now that you have got hold of the required firmware file, proceed ahead to the next step to unbrick Poco F5/Redmi Note 12 Turbo via Fastboot Commands.

  2. If you cannot do so (due to your device being stuck in a bootloop) then the only option left is to let the entire battery drain out.unbrick poco f5
  3. Once your device has turned off, press and hold the Volume Down and Power buttons for a few seconds.

To begin with, head over to the platform tools folder, type in CMD in the address bar, and hit Enter. This will launch the Command Prompt. Now type in the following three commands, one at a time, in this CMD window to flash the stock firmware files to their respective partitions. If you get any error after executing any of these commands, then don’t leave the process mid-way. Rather continue executing the rest of the commands and then check the results.
