I need help getting my phone unbricked, because its my only phone, it bricked and it boots into black screen and i can't boot into recovery mode and fast boot mode, is there anyone who can help me, it bricked when i flashed TWRP because my phone was updated into MIUI 12.5

Edited: it shows the logo and it turns on but it will back screen when it reaches the boot animation and does nothing.

I've searched my way into every pieces on the internet to find answers on my phone, and i got some information about how to restore redmi note 9 into stock, by using EDL mode in the phone, you can reset the phone into stock firmware, but the problem is i don't know anything about the redmi note 9 main board and i don't know which specific jumper i should touch, i might destroy the board if i shorted any jumpers, i hope get answers on what jumper i should touch to enter EDL mode in Redmi note 9

If you got bootloop after flashed magisk, you need to flash stock rom boot.img.
If you got bootloop after flashed TWRP, you need to flash stock rom recovery.img.
If you got bootloop (or black screen) after flashed misc partition, you need to erase misc partition.

If you are using V12.0.5.0 or higher, TWRP will not work.

Here, you can find boot images for original stock and magisk patched: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...omi-redmi-note-9-xiaomi-redmi-10x-4g.4204671/

If you want to keep TWRP working on V12.0.5.0 or higher, you need to flash the stock rom lk partition using V12.0.4.0 (or lower). (It will works perfectly with lower lk partition version).
Here, are LK images for flashing: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...omi-redmi-note-9-xiaomi-redmi-10x-4g.4218925/

If you want to disable TWRP, you need to flash stock rom recovery partition.
Here, are RECOVERY images for flashing: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...omi-redmi-note-9-xiaomi-redmi-10x-4g.4204671/

If your device keep booting in recovery (or blackscreen), you need to erase misc partition.
Here, is the guide for erasing MISC partition: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...omi-redmi-note-9-xiaomi-redmi-10x-4g.4209299/

If you want to know what is working for MERLIN, take a look: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...omi-redmi-note-9-xiaomi-redmi-10x-4g.4204873/

Good luck

Choose your firmware and flash it as any other xiaomi. You can google about it.

the original one, but the thing is i installed the wrong version because my phone's miui is 12.5 but i installed vbmeta 11.5 original version
Recovery partition is verified by vbmeta.
You need to disable verification in vbmeta.
Doesn't matter what version is, if vbmeta is disabled, it will not verify any partition.
If you flash any custom partition without disable verification on vbmeta (or change vbmeta version without disabled verification), it will keeps bricked until you flash original stock rom firmware.

If you are flashing anything, you are changing stock rom.
You can only change stock rom with unlocked bootloader.
If your bootloader is locked, it will keeps bricked until you flash stock rom and unlock bootloader.

yeah, i used the disable verification command on vbmeta, the bootloader is unlocked, but the issue is that i installed the wrong version of the vbmeta, and other things are that my device won't sow in mi flash or SP flash tool, but it shows up in platform tools when the phone was in fastboot mode

Can you record your bootloop?
Please, read careful this FAQ and reply with your bootloop record in this thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...for-merlin-redmi-note-9-redmi-10x-4g.4225163/
