Hey guys! I made a newbie mistake by not using mi flash tool and use manual flashing using sdk fastboot and i dont know what mistake i did but im pretty sure i did something wrong. Bootloader is already unlocked and i have root access already. Right after i flashed a magisk patched boot file to give root access and booted it up. The wifi wasnt working and tried to flash a stock rom again hoping it will fix the wifi not turning on problem, but unfortunately i think i flashed wrong rom or something and it basically bricked. Cant boot to recovery nor fastboot. but mi flashtool and QFIL can detect it. Tried flashing stock rom that i downloaded from official website and Mi flash tool will always fail at authentication and it says "only nop and sig tag can be received before authentication" and other different errors like resdump(etc. cause i dont understand. I tried QFIL using test points i found on google. and it will say Sahara fail or sometimes "firehose fail fhloader fail the system cannot find the file specified". Im not really good at this and really regretting rooting it. I cant give it to Xiaomi Phone centers because i bought it from overseas and there are no xiaomi phone centers in my country.

Can someone with a kind heart help me with this problem? Thank you very much.

POCO M3
Hello! Sorry to say this, but it is pretty much dead. You are in EDL mode, which Xiaomi locked out and you need to have an authorized service account to unbrick it through Mi Flash. A free way to do this would have been to find a patched programmer file, but it doesn't exist yet. I recommend you to ask every phone service in your city if they have an authorized service account or if they have USB Dongles (like Miracle Box or Hydra) for unbricking.

Hi Everyone, Just wanted to share the solution that we found out. My Friend had his Poco M3 Bricked, dead boot. No recovery, No display(totally black screen) and when I plug it in via USB it shows "

Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 "​

Been here about a month ago hoping that there is a solution. We tried the rubber band Method(See the attached image how to do it) you just need a cotton buds and a rubber band. Just place the tip of the cotton bud into the power button and secure it with rubber band 2 knots. So it's pressing the power button that way it's draining the battery it took him 2 days to drain it, But once the battery is drained the Charging Icon will display in the screen. And you can charge it and wait for it to boot up. This worked for my Xiaomi Redmi 9T and my Friend Poco M3 bot uses MIUI 12. After it boot again try to Avoid restarting it and Shutting it down so this may never happen Again.
