HOW TO FIX SOFTBRICK RUI 2.0 [GLOBAL]

By softbrick I mean you can still access to fastboot mode. If you can only access to EDL mode, bring your phone to repair service.

REQUIREMENTS:
- OrangeFox Recovery for RUI 2.0 (beta) (thanks to @4j17h)
- Downgrade package to RUI 1.0
- TWRP from mauronofrio (unofficial)
- Patched vbmeta.img for RUI 1.0 (thanks to @4j17h)
- Unlocked bootloader (otherwise you are hardbricked)
- ADB and Fastboot tools

I unlocked bootloader with deep testing apk in RUI 1.0... RUI 2.0 deep testing didn't install for me.

STEPS:
1. Get your phone to fastboot mode
2. Connect phone to PC
3. Flash OrangeFox RUI 2.0 beta (fastboot flash recovery recovery.img)
4. Boot to recovery now
5. Format data (OrangeFox can't decrypt RUI 2.0)
6. Reboot to recovery again
7. Flash downgrade zip for RUI 2.0 to RUI 1.0 (you can copy files from PC now after data is formatted)
8. Install TWRP from mauronofrio (fastboot flash recovery recovery.img)
9. Flash patched vbmeta
10. Phone should boot correctly to system now, you can update back to RUI 2.0 via OTA

EXTRA INFO:
Don't try to flash RUI 1.0 patched magisk boot file for root to RUI 2.0, it doesn't work.
If someone knows how to safely root RUI 2.0, please tell us.

If anyone finds anything wrong in the guide, please tell me and I will fix it.
