Okay so flashing the wrong kernel was a BAD idea, i didn't realise that it was the wrong Kernel and now i'm stuck in a bootloop. GREAT, and also. No fastboot for my device, which also makes the problem MORE GREAT.

I'm panicking because no online solutions seems to match my device because they all need fastboot for the method, can anyone fix my device?

Flashing kernels doesn't affect recovery, or at least it was for me.
Enter download mode and try to flash zip.

You mean flashing a ROM? I don't think there's a download mode on Xiaomi devices.

Volume down and power?
Then flash custom recovery if your bootloader is unlocked
They should recognize something like 0PJAIMG.zip, file name varies for devices

I don't think mine is unlocked, how do i know if my bootloader is unlocked btw?
(Not into those stuffs yet so i don't really know)

Umm.. No, which means you can't help. I found a fix but this will revert my version to MIUI 5 aka Jellybean (dsfgbdsogps0araworhrfewpgfhwrpgwhgp9weghew9gfq) yes Jellybean sucks but it's the only way.

This is the second time i formatted my phone to be honest.
And this is my first softbrick so it's normal to panic :crazy:

But in all seriousness, i'm lucky af just to get a softbrick. If i get a Hard Brick, then it's over.

Don't worry.

I had bootloop.

I installed a Privacy guard or how it called.

Didn't read that it have to be below 4 andorid but I had above.

Fortunely I fixed dat.

Deleted it trough safe mode.
