Hey people,

Today, one of my friends using Redmi Note 3 Kenzo tried to revert back to MIUI from a Custom ROM. He wiped everything via TWRP and installed two zips successively, the MIUI rom and lazyflasher zip files.

But now after the process, the phone isn't booting at all. The MI logo appears and disappears at an instant.

I usually do flashing by this method, but my bootloader is officially unlocked. His bootloader was unlocked the unofficial way and  I guess the problem is due to that.
Maybe the bootloader locked itself again i guess. What are the possible ways to revive the phone from this situation??
Need comments fast!! 😊

Provide video tutorials if available cause my friend isn't with me. Help needed fast.

Thanks. 👦

unlock bootloader and flash via mi flash ( if able to fastboot the Device)

or go for testpoints method/deep flash cable to enter edl mode

btw there's a tutorial available for that I guess. check it on XDA under Redmi note 3 forum
