Hi,

I went to wipe my phone to sell it, but I dunno what I did, now I wiped everything and there is not even a firmware on it, just loads to twrp, and I don't know how to get a file on it cause I hook it up to the computer and won't let me put the firmware file on it. What can I do, please help!

unfortunately this "seems" to be another case of M11 brick.
Try to side load via ADB. I hope you are still having fastboot working.
Or try to flash the zip rom via USB stick if you get one.
Next step will be EDL help.

I download the files, but mi flash doesn't recognize them, can't find them... Dunno why it's stuck in fastboot, I had it in twrp earlier, now can't get it into recover mode

"doesn't recognize them", did you extract the fastboot archive? Did you put the extracted fastboot folder in the root of your C: drive?

In seriousness,

If your device is currently stucked in fastboot (With fastboot logo), and the host machine does not detect it, please try booting up a Ubuntu live environment to confirm. Alternatively, please, check if the cable is faulty or not, or the port of the host.

If your device does not have any light on, but it is on fastboot, your device is hard bricked.
Please, find a right guy to EDL the device back for you, it can be as cheap as $20 and as expensive as $55.

Taken the lession, if you do not know what you're doing with your device, it's best to keep them locked and in factory state!

Wish you luck!

I use flash tool, but it fails when it gets to the "super" file,... For me it was just making the mistake of not wiping it properly, I flash stuff all the time....

I just ended up paying a Russian guy to do it, 29 bucks and no hassle, the end lesson is to make sure u wipe it correctly in twrp instead of checking boxes u don't know lol
