Bypass Authentication on Redmi Note 9 and Flash in EDL with No Auth

When it comes to MediaTek processor-equipped smartphones or tablet devices, they’re quite popular in the market and offer better performance. But users can’t flash firmware or unbrick most of the MTK devices via a Download Agent unless the OEM has set permissions for it. The same case is also happening with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 users. Here you can check out the steps to Bypass Authentication on Redmi Note 9 and Flash in EDL with No Auth.

Well, MediaTek (MTK) devices do come with a BROM (boot read-only memory) that usually loads the preloader executable and boots the Android system. Additionally, MTK devices offer an alternative booting method called ‘Download Mode’ which is the same as Qualcomm’s EDL (Emergency Download Mode) mode. But it’s quite unfortunate that Download Agent (DA) only accepts officially signed or authorized flash files.

A big thanks to XDA Senior Member xyz and developers Dinolek & k4y0z for making it possible to easily bypass MediaTek’s authentication bypass as well as flashing in EDL with no Auth file for free of cost whatsoever. The best part is that the same method can be used for other MediaTek chipset devices too and the steps are quite simple if you’re playing with Android or customizations for a while.
