This device may be associated with existing mi account

I had a terrible issue with my Xiaomi Note 1 (3G) version, “this device may be associated with existing mi account” problem.

After the phone was returned to my from my uncle, it has this dreaded error message. It will be automatically activated once the phone connects to the internet, and declare it is a lost phone. This is MY PHONE!

Nothing works even through the local means of going into Xiaomi recovery panel button configs (Power On with Volume UP or Power On with Volume DOWN depressed).


You need the ADB utility.

What would you need
1. Your phone
2. Data cable to connect phone to PC.

Now, put the phone into fastboot ( power +volume down ) mode
1. Connect ur phone to PC using cable data
2. Open COMMAND PROMPT from your WINDOWS (Win+R CMD)
3. Now type the commands :
1. You need to WIPE EVERYTHING on your PHONE
2. POWER ON with VOLUME UP Depressed.
3. You will see some prompts. Wipe Everything.
4. Power on it will load like a fresh phone.
5. Do not insert SIM or connect to WIFI else you will get locked.

1. Install ADB then issue the following commands when phone is connected.
2. adb reboot bootloader (Your phone will go into console mode showing fastboot)
3. fastboot devices (Your PC will show some info, mine showed 2 items)
4. fastboot -w (The PC will show some loaded drives, etc, and some failed message)
5. fastboot erase config (Your PC will be very fast here, 1 failed message, I ignored)
6. fastboot reboot (FIXED)


Herein lies the truth of our own Human Condition similar to the Xiaomi Phone. It was precious to me as I do not want it to be wasted. My soul which is worth much more than any phones is going to be wasted in hell. If only my fellow friends will realize that. Nothing that we do, or others do, will be able to remove this LOCKED state of our soul. We are LOCKED in SIN. LOCKED in our Destiny to wage war against the angry God because of our sinful nature.

Yet this GOD has provided the bridge – The Gospel bridge through Jesus, who DIED on the cross for our sin. Rose again the 3rd day. Now have freed us from our sinful state. The only condition needed is to realize our sad state, repent, get right with God, and live for JESUS as HE is the LORD of our LIFE. No turning back.

But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us. Isa 64:6

For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not. Ecc 7:20

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Would you my friend to realize we are locked in sin? Just like a locked lost phone?
