I tried to install Project Elixir and my phone is hard bricked now... Brick is result of attempting to boot system on TWRP, slot A. Device is in EDL state I guess, because when I connect it by USB, it shows in device manager. I downloaded necessary driver and MiFlash, but I receive information that it can't connect to device: "write time out, maybe device was disconnected". I also removed back cover to find some test spots, but I can't find them. Is it something I can do?

Are you sure you use the right cable? There are USB cables only suitable for charging not for data communication.

I remember that I used this cable to transfer .zip OS file to phone, so transferring was working under TWRP earlier.

Ok. This layout is also different too. I can't find these two holes under the hood.

Thanks. Tbh I'm not sure, if it's even in EDL mode, because I noticed that QPST shows infinitely loading green bar in "State" column. Phone reacts to + and power buttons, because when I press it, MiFlash and QPST don't even recognize it properly. When I press - and power buttons, device is recognized in MiFlash. In QPST there is also some info about it.
