  • Redmi Note 3 — 5.0.2 LRX22G
    MIUI 7.2|Stable|

    was exploring settings, I changed something after which navigation buttons <Recents,Home,Back) DOESN'T work now. However I see lights on them appear.

    steps taken so far: updated MIUI to 7.2 from 7.0 using Mi PC Suite

    Please assist!

  • prompting me to enter Mi account password
    but no provision to type as there’s only an eye on right end
    keyboard doesn’t pop up here…

    • I think your android system is corrupt. If like that only one way to solve it, that is flashing your device with stock rom/firmware. I don’t have a tutorial to flash it.

  • Thank you for replying!

    I tried this
    but DON’T see any device on opening Miflash….any thoughts

    Also tried

    Disable Driver Signature for 64-bit> Windows 8>
    after “adb devices & adb reboot edl” commands
    Phone Led doesn’t change to red as mentioned there!

    any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    One thing I have noticed is Mi PC Suite detects the Phone without any issues. I was able to update MIUI 7.2 as stated above.

    still NOT responding!
