Bootloader type = Oxygen (not sure if that is the proper one for the device though)
Bootloader lock = Unlocked via Xiaomi official procedure
USB Debug = Not sure, I'm starting to fear it's off though

Original issue = My phone was bricked. No sound, display or whatsoever.

What did I try?
  1. I followed an unbrick tutorial which made me flash an Oxygen firmware file. After that I get a boot loop. Mi logo and Android loading bar appears and seems to be like that continuously.
  2. I can't access either fastboot or recovery mode. If I try any of the two button combinations I don't even get the Mi logo screen. I see the backlight turn on and nothing happens.
  3. I tried flashing several fastboot roms, stock roms and firmware files I could find, flashing them with different versions of MiFlash. Except for the one I described in step 1 none of them change the situation as described in 'Original issue'.
  4. I need to use the 'test pin method' to even let the computer detect the phone in MiFlash. The phone does not get detected inADB fasboot (which makes sense, as I can't enter fastboot mode anyway).

I'm hoping someone can point me in a direction which leads me to fix my phone. I'm not sure what steps I did to even get to the point where it stopped responding in any way. It has been some time ago, but I think I flashed an Oreo firmware file just before that point.

If you find the right points you can get into edl. Did you try a cable already?
