Going to a service center probably isn't a wise idea. You've rooted your phone - your warranty is gone.

I guess you don't have the right drivers installed OR, the stock rom you were trying to flash had some issues with the flash script. You might want to take a look at this post

Download the correct stock ROM for your device, the .tgz version & flash it with miflash tool. It's important to note that some versions of miflash tool don't work with Mi A series phones for unknown reasons.

Alternatively, if your recovery is working, then you can flash the recovery version of stock rom. It's all available on this forum.

Glad to hear you're phone is working fine now :highfive: :highfive:
I think you somehow had your wifi / mobile data on & the phone downloaded the OTA & auto updated itself to the latest firmware, that is V10.3.6.0.

Set active slot to a first before flashing in MiFlash using command - "fastboot set_active a" (without quotations) in adb command.

tried flashing my mi a3 to stock now stuck in fastboot mode

I finally got miflash to recognize my phone by adding a new folder and naming it "log" and i tried flashing "laurel_sprout_global_images_V10.3.8.0.PFQMIXM_20191012.0000.00_9.0_d099f2839b" ; it said it was flashing and had green progress bar, but it went all the way to 100% after about 600 seconds and i just gave up after 1200 seconds. what am I missing?

Just reboot your device when it finishes after 600 seconds. Miflash doesn't tell you that it successfully flashed it it just goes on forever. So just reboot and it will work.

Change the active slot to 'a' and reboot.

it's unable as its in a locked state: 'FAILED (remote: 'Slot Change is not allowed in Lock State
I believe I need to get it into EDL mode. I have no problem taking off the back glass and shorting the pins to do so, but not sure what to do after that point... Set slot to active "a", flash it with miflash with a fastboot stock ROM? Also from what ive read, you can only put thw phone into edl mode once so it's a one shot deal.

Try to unlock bootloader once again through fastboot and after that you can change the slot.

managed to get into EDL mode by shorting the pinouts, but still cant flash stock ROM cuz apparently xiaomi has to authorize it (ie i dont have permission to unbrick it). This is the first and last xiaomi phone I'll ever buy - never had a phone where there was no option i had to unbrick it. going to ****in smash it to peices!

I felt sorry that no one did help these people,
go to fastboot and run windows commands in twrp folder and type as following :
- option one:
fastboot devices
./fastboot set_active b
./fastboot erase boot
./fastboot set_active a
./fastboot erase boot
fastboot flashing unlock (optional)
fastboot Flash boot [put twrp name].img or go to mi flash to install stock rom. or unzip the stock rom from bat file run it

or try the second option:

    I cant change to slot a, i get an error that phone is in locked state

    I wonder if u could share copy of script

    Will try my best

    Firstly i did (if i remember correctly) got version 10.3.8 working, but just do got 10.3.13 working

    I used:

    - Latest ADB, Fastboot platform tools
    - Latest stockrom from official source bigota miui site (can't post link yet)
    - Also try to get version 10.3.12 too cause there is a missing image in 10.3.13 (metadata.img)

    1- Create a folder and put inside adb, fastboot tools files
    2- Uncompress stockrom 10.3.13 and put all files including images folder into the folder you create before
    3- Get metadata.img for 10.3.12 and copy it to the images folder
    4- Get a command prompt running and navigate to your folder
    5- Run following command
    Fastboot devices
    Fastboot getvar current-slot
    6- If slot is not A type
    Fastboot set-image a

    7- Run script:
    flash_all.bat

    Follow what's done and what did succeed without error and script failed
    Make copy of your flash_all.bat and name if flash_#.bat (where # will be 1-9 depending)
    Edit with notepad that new script and remove all succesfull lines
    Reboot back your phone into fastboot pressing (Power + Volume Up) or typing fastboot reboot
    Now repeat step 5-7 but please run your newest version Flash_#.bat

    Repeat all that until all script lines completed and phone reboot.
