Question [SOLVED] Soft Bricked device stuck in boot loop, only fastboot working. No TWRP. MiFlash does not work. How can I fix this mess?

Search This thread
Solution: I hardbricked my device because of my dumbness. This device is not veux... It s viva. Be cautious my friends...



I unlocked my bootloader and wanted to install TWRP to flash a custom ROM to the device. Unfortunately, right after I tried, device got stuck in a bootloop (Mi logo showing, then closing.)

I tried flashing multiple TWRP files after that. Since there is no official file for this device, I tried the ones given in the forum and a youtube video.

Holding power+up does not open anything. Holding power+down I can go to fastboot. ADB does not see the device (adb devices does not show anything). But fastboot devices does show. (MiFlash tool also sees the device but can't flash the ROM.)

MiFlash first gives the classic crc error, I delete the lines, it passes this error and finally gives another error ("Command failed"). I tried flashing 2 versions (my local version and eu version) of the stock rom in both windows and ubuntu based linux. What am I doing wrong?

Am I doomed? What can be done? Why isn't ADB working? Thank you for replies

ABD works only if you have enabled USB debugging.
Eventually check here that everything is correct:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/flash-tool-guide-use-xiaomi-flash-tool.4262425/

Or try to install a Xiaomi Eu rom (Fastboot).

Extract the zip then run the scrip in the corresponding extracted folder to your O.S.
Fastboot_first install.
xiaomi.eu_multi_VEUX_V13.0.3.0.SKCCNXM_v13-12-fastboot.zip

Hello, I do have my bootloader unlocked and USB debugger is also on.
I tried flashing twrp again, says it worked but does not boot into it. Goes back to boot loop

Then I tried flashing with MiFlash again. Same error
fastboot error remote: command failed

When I google it everyone says my bootloader should be locked. But it is not.

Can I use the hard brick solution with bypass for this problem?

All these procedures, Miflash, Twrp, Xiaomi Eu rom are done in Fastboot mode not ADB and obviously the bootloader must be unlocked.
Try the Xiaomi Eu rom.(TWRP included).

These are the screenshots of the Xiaomi Eu rom?
What is the version of your phone? (11 pro/Poco).
What rom were you on?
post the Miflash log.
Downloaded the rom from the link you sent me earlier. My device is veux and had MIUI13 before getting bricked.

Again the device got bricked from the last think i did. Do you know what wen wrong?
