Fastboot Xiaomi: what it is and how to enter any Xiaomi mobile

Xiaomi’s goal is to enhance the functionality of its phones. In recent years, the Asian brand has been responsible for perfecting the operating system of its devices, so knowing how to get the best out of some features, Fastboot mode among them, can be very useful for any user.

In this article we will talk about Xiaomi’s Fastboot mode: what it is, how to start it and subsequently, how to exit it.

What is Xiaomi Fastboot mode?

When we talk about Fastboot mode, we refer to a boot method used by Xiaomi smartphones and tablets. This system allows the forced reboot of the device and also the total factory reset of the phone. The tool also serves to install some applications and to keep the operating system updated, as long as it is from a computer.

In that sense, you can flash your phone or tablet, change the MIUI version, install another ROM or TWRP, etc. You can access Fastboot mode from the phone itself or from the computer, in case you want to make other types of modifications.

How to enter Xiaomi Fastboot mode

The first thing you should check is that the phone allows you to access Fastboot mode. To do this, follow the steps below:

  • Step 1. Go to “Phone settings” – “About phone” and then press 7 times on the MIUI section. After that, Fastboot mode should be activated.
  • Step 2. Turn off the cell phone. Press at the same time: power button and volume down. This should be done until Fastboot mode appears on the splash screen. Once you see the welcome screen, stop pressing the buttons.
  • Step 3. It is now possible to enter the Xiaomi Fastboot mode and display a menu with three options in which you must select the Reboot option.

It is important to keep in mind that it is not possible to start Fastboot mode automatically. However, if the device has the corrupted ROM it is possible to boot in this mode when the device is turned on.

Within Fastboot mode you can choose Reboot, Wipe Data and Connect with MIAssistant. We must choose Reboot and then Reboot to System if we want to reboot the mobile.

How to exit Xiaomi Fastboot mode

Once inside Fastboot mode, you just need to press the power button for 15 seconds. This will lead the device to reboot, but when it boots it will do so without Fastboot mode.

Once the phone reboots, it will start loading the system. If this does not happen, it will be necessary to install the ROM again. This must be compatible with the version of your cell phone and your country.

As you can see, it is very easy to access the Xiaomi Fastboot mode. Note that, if it is not necessary, it is not relevant to start it or access it.
