Jun 27, 2021
I cannot get my Redmi 7A to boot to twrp after I had wiped Cache, System and Data within TWRP.

Running `fastboot flash recovery [Inserting TWRP.img]` returns with a success
Restarting the device shows the initial redmi Logo but than instantly returns to Fastboot.
Running `fastboot boot [Inserting TWRP.img]` returns with:

Sending 'boot.img' (27210 KB) OKAY [ 0.857s] Booting FAILED (remote: 'unknown reason') fastboot: error: Command failed

I was trying to install lineage https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/rom-arm64-unofficial-lineageos-18-1-for-redmi-7a-pine.4267861/
I haven't messed with twrp since my Redmi Note 6 Pro in early 2019, let alone brick and fix a phone since 2015 with my Galaxy S4 haha. I can wrap my head around most things but I'm not adept with android BIOS systems
