I tried that too with no avail.
Then I got a link from someone to an official TWRP for merlin (from twrp.me) but it was for Motorola Moto G Turbo, also named merlin.
Now not even the hardware buttons work, so I'll take it to a support store, and I hope they can fix it.
Thank you for your support
I think you are not trying exactly what others are advising you should do, you are in your own trying things out of scope. The links for TWRP are very clear in the various guides provided by VD171.

The better is using simply the SP Flash tool with your device completely off, READ the thread to bypass the EDL authorization and all will be OK, recover first the ability to boot and after try again to customize it always that you didn't have a mistake and flashed something for other device that worst the things what I'm starting to suspect.

I've read a lot of stuff about sp flash tool, but it's the first time someone tells that the device needs to be completely off. That's why it just sits there for more than an hour doing nothing.

Now it's too late, the phone is fully charged and will take days to drain the 5A battery.
On monday it goes to a support store hoping they will make it boot again.

(y) 🙏

Completely off means that you have to shut down the device, not that the battery has to be drained. When the device is off connecting it to the PC while you press volume up it would work too, if the device is not recognize properly it could be hours, days, no matter, nothing can't happen in this stage. The guide to bypass EDL authorization is a must-read too, otherwise your device won't pass from BROM to bootloader and SP Flash tool won't see it.

I can see some light at the end of the tunnel :)
After only one night the battery drown completely, and I was able to make spflashtoo detect my phone.

Now I need some guidance, please:

My device had v12.0.1.0-RJOEUXM installed, abusively auto updated from v12.0.10.0-QJOEUXM, which means, it was upgraded from A10 to A11 without a simple warning. I wanted A10 back and was able to successfully downgrade it. So far so good.
It was bricked while on 12.0.10.0-Q, after flashing a twrp for a motorola also called merlin.

This is what I think I can try now, with your bless and approval: (y)

1. Flash (in Download mode) ONLY bootloader from v12.0.4.0-QJOEUXM -> how? spflash tool complains about authorization
2. Flash (in Download mode) v12.0.10.0-QJOEUXM, leaving bootloader un ticked

If this is the correct approach, how can I bypass the error about authorization?
I've read this but couldn't get any conclusion
Direct links to the needed files would be nice.

Thanks a bunch 🙏🙏🙏

Hi everyone, need help with bricked device. I accidentally flashed with SPFT a Redmi 10x on a Redmi 9. The result hard-brick. I wanted to downgrade from MIUI 12.5.2 to 11, bootloader was unlocked. Any suggestions? Thanks
