In this document, we are going to show you how to connect your phone in MiAssistant (sideload) mode.

This mode is for Qualcomm Xiaomi devices and, you will be able to perform the following procedures in it based on the current firmware version of the phone:

  • Bypass Mi account (You can use it to skip the Setup Wizard. It doesn't remove the Mi Account and the phone will be locked again after a firmware update.)

  • Factory Reset

Firstly, turn off the phone, then press the Volume+ and Power buttons at the same time. Once you see the logo, let go of the Power button and only press Volume+. You will be shown this screen on the phone.


Using Volume- select the "Connect with MiAssistant" option and confirm it by pressing the power button. Then connect the phone to Chimera.
