[Q&A] Redmi 6A bricked completely (almost)

So, let me start from the very beginning of the story. A while ago I had unlocked bootloader to flash a custom ROM, buuut didn't do that since MIUI after some polishing was doing a great job.
But once upon a time my phone decided to update itself on-air, and, as you could guess, it turned out badly - bootloop.
Last week I've decided to flash a phone via fastboot since bootloader was already unlocked - "no big deal", i thought.

And flashing didn't went well as intended. Instead, now I have a bricked device. It charges, it flashes LED, it vibrates periodically, but the screen is black and shut all time. My PC can't see my phone after pressing "Power" and "Power VolumeDown" buttons, but seems to recognize it in recovery mode (Power VolumeUp). Screen is black through, don't see a damn thing.

So, here is a question: how to bring this device back to life?

Welp, its been a long time.
I've learned that there is no way to flash it as good as new without authorized MI account, which, actually, I don't have. The other way to manually tinker motherboard, detach memory, flash it with little things like UFI, Jtag, z3x and other stuff like that, solder it back - profit. Dunno about dongles option through, but, seems like flashing via micloUSB is an impossible task for simple user. Problem solved by pain, shred, tears and replacing motherboard, which is, actually, quite an option too.

The Redmi 6A is a MTK phone then it can't enter EDL mode to flash, anyway to solve the problem you need to use an Mi authorized account.

Take the phone to a Mi authorized service center, this maybe could result cheaper than all the work that you say.
