A failure that occurs when turning on a Xiaomi phone is the bootloop error in which the normal loading of the system stops, leaving the smartphone frozen on the MIUI logo screen.
This problem of stuck in the boot can occur after an update of the operating system, root operations, installation of incompatible ROMs, among other causes. It has several ways to solve it and we show them below.
- With the phone locked on the MIUI logo, press the power key and the volume up key at the same time.
- When it restarts, release the power key and wait for the Recovery menu screen to appear.
- Try to solve the problem by using the option to reboot the device, which has the advantage of not causing data loss. To do this, use the power key to select the Reboot option and then Reboot to System.
If this doesn’t work, repeat the above process and select the Wipe Data option (factory reset).
If you are still having problems you can use Fastboot mode and the help of your computer. To enter this mode, press the power button and the volume down button at the same time.
In addition, you will need to download the Xiaomi Flash Tool (https://www.xiaomiflash.com/download/) to your PC, which allows you to flash the phone with an official version of MIUI. This tool offers the download of the official ROM and its subsequent installation on the phone, which should put an end to the bootloop problem.
