Let's see if I understand, you were at Oreo, flash this file in fastboot in adb mode, then I didn't understand what you meant by the original firmware?
I'm not using that firmware mentioned in this post I downloaded that from

bro, so you have no firmware problem if you can flash any rom without putting this edited fw. In my case if I flash any rom that has firmware inside the zip the phone goes into fastboot.

    I have seen many people facing this issue where they flashed a OxygenOS rom of different phone ( Due to a idiot youtuber said it can be flashed on all devices )

    I recently recieved a POCO F1, with same condition where i cannot update MIUI over Oreo firmware.

    So, this guide is for those people who cannot boot any new MIUI other than Oreo OTA

    * First make sure you are on Oreo MIUI and your device is working fine.
    * Download Latest MIUI A10 OTA and extract it.
    * From the above latest OTA pick system, vendor and boot images and place them in any folder.
    * Flash system, vendor and boot through fastboot mode using following commands:

    fastboot flash system path_to_the_files\system.img

    fastboot flash vendor path_to_the_files\vendor.img

    fastboot flash boot path_to_the_files\boot.img

    * Now Flash lastest recovery for Poco F1 (OOFGang TWRP Suggested ).
    * Boot into twrp and flash this fiirmware only (also attached below).
    * Format Data and reboot.
    * You have A10 MIUI installed.


    Notes:
    * Dont do anything other than mentioned step else can hardbrick device.
    * Dont flash any OTA directly on the device either from fastboot or recovery.
    * Dont flash new firmware else you can hardbrick device.
    * After insatlling MIUI A10 you can install any rom without any probllem just make sure they dont include any firmware.

    DISCLAIMER NOTICE
    * I'm not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed (like it did for me...).
    * YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
    * Your warranty will be void if you tamper with any part of your device / software.

    Thank you so much for this awesome guide! I haven't encountered the problem myself but I try to learn new things every day.
    Just a little question: why wouldn't it be possible to flash new firmware (e.g. from https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/firmware/beryllium/) when they are released?
