Bro, You can unbrick your device by flashing. First you need to remove back shell of your device then you need to flash your device in EDL MODE (EDL = Emergency Download ) . If you want help you can meassage me . i will provice you with Flash file & Instructions :D

Could you send me the instructions to carry out this procedure?

My mobile also bricked when im try to install custome rom and tried to flash latest stock rom 10.3.16.... But no use when installing finished it reboot to a warning 'system has been destroyed' for 3 sec and rebbot to fastboot mode... Then i tried...
1) slot set to 'a' (fastboot set_active a)
2) downloaded old firmware (10.3.4.0)
3) mobile connected to system and open the bat file in rom folder 'flash_all_lock'
4)it installs rom directly with cmd and without miflash tool
5) bhoom.... Its rebooted to erase screen and mobile was unbricked

*If it was not switched on and mobile go to fastboot mode than open cmd promt and set slot to b and swith it on by pressing power button for 10sec

Locking your bootloader (flash_all_lock) without testing the device first is extremely "brave" idea. Never lock it unless you're 100% sure that phone can fully boot and everything works.

EDL can fix that, however, Mi A3 is one of the devices that requires an authorized Mi account to be used inside MiFlash, I am yet to find a way to bypass this on modern Xiaomi phones. For now it's better to avoid locking the bootloader, since Fastboot is the only flashing auth free method.

I head there are some modified firehose file that can bypass edl authorization, but i am not sure if there is any modified firehose file for mi a3

Good night, I have been bricked my device for over 5 days, I was trying to install the Custom ROM pixel experience, but when I installed the TWRP the wifi would stop working and I had the brilliant idea of ​​installing another recovery inside. from TWRP itself and to go further wrong I still unintentionally blocked the bootloader, now I've tried to flash several MiFlash and none successfully, I took it to a technician and he tried a test point and also couldn't make it work, can anyone give a light that I'm already desperate without knowing what else to do

Did you try with EDL?

I had access to one of those archives, unfortunately I did not have time to test it; I will attach in this post, but beware, I will not guarantee functionality nor I will be responsible for further damage, use it at your own risk.

My phone is working fine so i am not gonna use it, but i am keeping it to my collection just in case, let someone use it who needs it. May i ask where did you found it? And if anyone confirmed if it is working?

    Plaese help me.
    I can't get stock android booting. Flashed via MiFlash. Always back to fastboot.
    Can anybody help me with that please?
    Does the flashing procedure success? What does the MiFlash says when finished flashing?

    Try switching to active slot to a before flashing.

    Miflash gave me a success message. Finally got stock booted changing active slot to a and flashing again.
    Thank you very much for your reply!
