In this guide, we will show you the steps to unbrick your Xiaomi 12 Pro via Fastboot Commands. The latest additions to the Xiaomi family, all these three devices boast an impressive specs sheet. However, it is the Pro version that has managed to grab the attention of the masses. Not only for the general audience, but it has a slew of goodies for the tech enthusiast as well.
Once you have bypassed the sole prerequisite of an unlocked bootloader, you could welcome a plethora of mods and tweaks onto your device. These include the likes of flashing custom/GSI ROMs, installing a custom recovery, or gaining administrative access by rooting your device via Magisk. This in turn will allow you to flash Magisk modules, Xposed Framework, Substratum Themes, etc.
However, each of these tweaks could prove to be risky as well. If not done correctly, then there’s every chance of the device ending up in a bootloop or soft-bricked state. But even if that happens, you could easily unbrick your Xiaomi 12 Pro via Fastboot Commands. And in this guide, we will show you how to do just that. Follow along.
How to Unbrick Xiaomi 12 Pro via Fastboot Commands
The below instructions are listed under separate sections for ease of understanding. Make sure to follow the same sequence as mentioned. Droidwin and its members wouldn’t be held responsible in case of a thermonuclear war, your alarm doesn’t wake you up, or if anything happens to your device and data by performing the below steps.
STEP 1: Download Android SDK
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 Xiaomi 12 Pro Fastboot ROM
Next up, download the Fastboot ROM for your device. As for this guide, I am using Xiaomi 12 Pro Global V18.104.22.168.SLBMIXM Fastboot ROM [Direct Download Link]. You are free to try any version of your choice, but it is recommended to try the newer builds only and of your region. To download the firmware, you may use the official MIUI Forum.
Or 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:
- 22.214.171.124– Firmware version
- S – Android version (S-> Android 12).
- LB – Smartphone model code (LB= Xiaomi 12 Pro)
- 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 your Xiaomi 12 Pro via Fastboot Commands.
STEP 3: Move Xiaomi 12 Pro Fastboot ROM Files to ADB Folder
- Once you have downloaded the firmware, extract it to any convenient location on your PC.
- Then go to its Images folder and transfer all the files to the platform-tools folder on your PC.
STEP 4: Boot Bootloop/Bricked Redmi K50 to Fastboot Mode
- To begin with, you will have to boot your device to the Fastboot Mode. The first step for that requires you to power it off.
- 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 (remember the good old days when we could easily remove the battery!).
- Once your device has turned off, press and hold the Volume Down and Power buttons for a few seconds.
- This will boot your device to Fastboot Mode. You should see the famous Mi Bunny Logo with the Fastboot text underneath it.
STEP 5: Unbrick Xiaomi 12/Pro/12X via Fastboot Commands
Execute each of the below commands in the CMD window, one at a time. Moreover, 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.

The second last command listed above will set your active partition to A and the last command will automatically boot your device to the OS. However, if your device is still not booting to the OS, then you will have to take the nuclear approach of factory resetting your device (which will delete all the data). So with your device booted to Fastboot Mode, execute the below command to wipe your device:
After that, execute all the aforementioned commands, one at a time, starting from the first ‘fastboot erase boot_ab’ command all the way up to the last ‘fastboot reboot’ command. Your device should then boot to the OS. On that note, we round off this guide to unbrick Redmi K50 via Fastboot Commands.
