Hi guys, my volume buttons are defect and my phone doesn´t boot up anymore because I flashed a wrong file... It just hangs on the Mi logo.
So now I´ve got somewhat of a problem since I can´t either access recovery or fastboot.

Any ideas? :(

You can see if you can get connected to adb.

If you can you could type adb reboot recovery to start the recovery.

Plug the phone into your pc and see if driver install dialog pops up.

If it does you can just go and install and drivers and use and.exe to issue the command to your phone.

Yes it does install drivers.
It installed 'Android Composite ADB Interface' and tried to install 'Qualcomm HS-USB Android DIAG 901D' driver but failed.
But yes, ADB works!!
And now?

Good. Now Google for the android sdk, you will find something called adt bundle, get it and unpack it.

Inside the sdk folder you have a platform-tools folder and inside that adb.exe.

Open a command line, navigate to that folder and type adb.exe reboot recovery and press enter.

This will restart your phone and boot the recovery.
