Hi fellow developers.

So,my story is quite weird and expected indeed.
Being the noob I am at flashing custom roms and recoveries,I flashed orange fox recovery on my device,even flashed a custom rom and managed to use it for about 3/4 hours.

Then I thought that my device was ready, all my changes work,and it is a good idea to relock my bootloader.So,without flashing the stock recovery back,I relocked my bootloader.

After reboot,my device is stuck on "Red state" and keeps on rebooting after every 5 secs. I can't even boot to fastboot mode,nor can I completely shut down my device.

So any ideas what can I do? Do I need to go to the service center? If yes,what would they do and how much would they charge?

Thank you!.

Not that only you should have the stock recovery to relock bootloader, you should need to return completely to stock to can relock it safely.

Follow this guide carefully https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/repair-dead-hard-bricked-realme-3-3i-tutorial.4224255/ replace all the files needed when it comes to your specific model.

For future reference, NEVER re-lock the bootloader when your phone isn't 100% stock. The guide SubwayChamp linked above should work.

Hey @SubwayChamp

I did try the method you recommended. But,my phone is not recognised as a mediatek device.They show all the connected devices as usb.

Try following step one to eight inclusive. Should then recognize your device.
