The Vivo y53 processor is a QUALCOMM CHIPSET cant be flash on ordinary usb connection, we have to open it and put it on to EDL mode (Emergency Download) it is a Qualcomm feature that can allow you to perform tasks like unbricking or flashing your devices. do not try this to any other model, Note: this procedure will work only to Vivo Y53.

Tools Needed

  • Tweezer
  • Screw ★ 0.8
  • Screw + 1.5
  • Plastic picks
  • Sim Card ejector
  • Usb Charging and Data Cable
  • Laptop
  • Qualcomm Flash Image Loader v2.0.0.2
  • Vivo Y53 Firmware


1. Remove the sim tray by the sim card ejector tool, then fully turn off your phone.


2. Remove the two screws at the bottom by Screw ★ 0.8 tool.

10. Make sure you have a Qualcomm driver installed to your computer, google it, use the tweezer to connect the two dots, then while holding those testpoint, connect the USB cable to your phone and to the computer, to know that it is connected you will hear a beep sound, then remove the tweezer to the two dots to begin flashing.
