How to Flash the Xiaomi Redmi 6a Firmware:
Step 1: Extract the downloaded file (you will find a zip folder inside it).
Step 2: You will see a folder named “Updater” and there will be an executable file named “ADB“. Copy the file to your PC.
Step 3: Boot your device into “Recovery Mode.” To do this, turn off your phone and then keep pressing the Volume Up + Volume Down + Power buttons together until you see a “MI” logo.
Step 4: Connect your phone to the PC and open the folder where you have copied the file in Step 2.
Step 5: Press the Alt + F keys together to open the ‘Run’ dialog box and type “cmd” in it. You will see a command prompt box now.
Step 6: In the command prompt box, type ‘ADB sideload filename>’ without quotes. Here, filename> is the name of the file where the ROM is saved. For example, if the file name is ‘DWR83188.8.131.52China International DEWGX9YWV2.0.0B0120190203.0000.008.0.zip’, then the command will be ‘adb sideload DWR83184.108.40.206China International DEWGX9YWV2.0.0B0120190203.0000.008.0.zip’.

If you are having some doubts about the flashing process, then you can check out the following FAQs.
- Are there any risks involved in flashing the stock ROM?
There are some risks associated with this process. Firstly, make sure you are flashing the correct ROM on your device. Secondly, make sure that your device has at least 50% battery life left. If not, then you have to charge your device before proceeding with the flashing process.
- Is it a good idea to downgrade my phone?
Theoretically, it is not a good idea to downgrade your phone. Downgrading means going back to the older version of the ROM. This means the user experience will be less than optimal.
- If I have upgraded my phone to the latest version of the ROM, can I downgrade it again?
Yes, you can. But, make sure that you are flashing the same ROM version. For example, if you have installed the latest version of the ROM, then you can downgrade your device to the older version.
