Cant use Mi5s after delete data from recovery menu


Aug 28, 2020
I have n Mi5s which I no longer need (bought an Mi10), I tried to delete data (to sell) but now the phone is unusable.
When I boot up it does the MIUI 10 install , set up as new, then it says device was reset and is prompting me to log into a previously synced google account.
When I log in (uses two step verification on my mi10) it just keeps displaying the same google login screen and there is no other options available.

Does someone know why and how to get round this ? I may have to just throw the phone in the bin :-(

Help appreciated.
