Hi everyone, to add some background I am fairly familiar with flashing this device as I have had it for 3 years and have done a lot of tinkering with it. However this does not mean I am good, and I have definitely soft bricked this phone a lot over the years, but today I think I finally hard bricked it.

Basically, I was using stock MIUI but with TWRP recovery and wanted to add my card to Google Pay, however it said my device was not secure (or something) so I thought it must be because I don't have fully stock MIUI. So I decided to see some way to return the stock recovery, and after doing 5 minutes of research I saw that I could flash the stock ROM and then through fastboot run "fastboot oem lock" which would reset it to stock. However I definitely did something wrong because after rebooting into recovery it says "The system has been destroyed, Press power button to shutdown", and the phone will not boot normally anymore.

You might now suggest that I should unlock my bootloader again through Mi account, but the problem is that I wasn't logged into my Mi account, so I think this is impossible. I have tried running "fastboot oem unlock", but that obviously returns an error when I tried.

Is there any hope to recover this device or is it gone forever? I would appreciate any advice. If you need more info please just ask.

Thanks!

Thanks for responding, I will try this as soon as I can get a different phone to receive the SMS for the Mi account. As for the recovery, I'm not really sure what exactly it is because as I said, when I try to boot recovery it just says, "The system has been destroyed".

Had this same problem a few months ago, just try to unlock the phone again using mi unlock. After unlocking quickly install a custom recovery and you should be good.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I'm in the process of trying to unlock with mi unlock however it says my account is suspended when I try to log in, I will be trying to recover it but I hope it will not cause any issues with unlocking the phone if I change the phone number as part of the recovery process.

Hello again, it would seem that I will not be able to unlock the Mi account that I used to unlock the device originally so I think I am out of options unfortunately. I will look into buying a new phone.
