I performed a factory reset on my Redmi Note 6 Pro and it seems things went wrong as it now won't boot. When I turn it on, I get the screen for a few seconds then nothing. I did some googling and decided to try a fastboot flash. This did not work with an error "Flash xbl error"

Here is the log:

Can anyone assist? I see the "flashing is not allowed in lock state" message but my various googlings seem to suggest I shouldn't need to unlock? Perhaps I do (I did start down that path but got a bit stuck - will persevere if that is the issue).

Managed to get into Recovery mode on the device and that fixed it. No need to flash after all.
