I can't unlock if it's locked because I can't go to settings - developer. I've tried EDL, Recovery Method and Flashboot, nothing works. Bought it from Aliexpress.

I'm using Mi Flash Pro
V10.3.1.0.PEIMIXM Device installed Version

Edited: Story of Success haha

Back to life again :)

I used EDL, this method:
I think the trick was that you have to disconect the battery like in the video 1:15min

used this ROM: Jainam's Rom for Whyred EDL USERS.7z -- Renamed to "UnofficialXiaomiFlash", this ROM was not on my C:\ drive but worked fine.

Link to the ROM:

Flashed with MiFlashPro\XiaoMiFlash
normal flashed EDL: took 2244s
Selected: Clean all

After this process my device started bricked again, but I already had closed the back cover, the screws, everything :'(, so I thought: "why not wipe all data?" So I did, then it came back to life \o/

Did not installed a new MIUI yet, I have to wait "just" 168 hours to unlock bootloader of my phone.

yes, it says: "can't go back to older versions", I don't know whether a future update will make it possible to use the recovery method with sucess, that's my dream.
Bootloader is locked, edl not authorized (because it was an official update as it always was in the past), I never thought this could happen, I actually do suspect my phone is a modified chinese version but I always received updates without problems.

really sad

Contact the seller or visit service centre .

As you're using edl test point method try using a different version . Latest or may 2018 version .
  Many users have found by changing MiFlash they can successfully flash

Thank you, it solved my problem. With other roms always ask for authorization. With this one it didn't :)

I'm glad it worked also to you \o/
5 full days of trial and error, I've downloaded more than 10 ROM's, I got really angry sometimes haha
Monday, I will unlock bootloader and try to install a new Chinese ROM. I hope it works too :D
