    Hi, did you factory reset in settings?
    If not do the factory reset in recovery and it will ask for your Google account information

    that's what I tried to do to begin with, factory resetting that I could give it away but now it's stuck in just asking for the MI Account password. As I said it boots up gets wi fi going but nothing else. No home screen no icons can't get anywhere without that MI password

    Thats the proper way in settings, not sure why it's asking for account , this Google account?

    Can you not try to recover your mi account password via a desktop PC? I'm kinda feeling there maybe a "forgotten password" feature on the Webb page. If not try contacting them directly.

    I have tried everything I could think of short of calling Xiaomi but there is no way I can succeed with this phone.All suggestion I got from you guys plus some more. There must be a solution somewhere but I am at the end of my wits!

    You already tried the Reset Password option? https://account.xiaomi.com/fe/servic...qs=&_locale=en. It requires either the email or phone number you used for the Mi account.

    Has this phone ever belonged to someone else?

    Not sure if there's anything else I can suggest. Try contacting Xiaomi's support: https://privacy.mi.com/support/servi...n%40xiaomi.com

    it only belong to me bought from b&h used it very little and tried it to reset it to out of box condition to give it to my grandson and that's when it happened. I don't think there is anything wrong with the phone it has to be a software problem. Thanks for all your help.
