    Post hard bricked willow (redmi note 8t) no fastboot / no recovery

    Did you send the firehose programmer before you send the reboot xml? As the log said, may be you forgot to send programmer manually? Do a power cycle and send "prog_emmc_firehose_Sm6125_ddr.elf" using QSaharaServer.exe first: QSaharaServer.exe -u 40 -s 13:"prog_emmc_firehose_Sm6125_ddr.elf"...

    I own a RN8(ginkgo) and it's not easy to open the back cover. I manually went to EDL with a fastboot command and do an experiment to confirm it could flash without errors.. The result is that the phone reboot and boot up with no problems. Maybe he could try to force reboot by sending reboot...

    Post Queries regarding installation of Custom ROM in my Redmi Note 8 for the first time.

    Of course you can. Download the recovery ROM and flash it with 3rd party recovery like TWRP etc. Root is not necessary for flashing custom ROM. Format data and cache after flashing.
