You are not first to do that, there are tons of threads about that specific topic.
But short, you will need:
EDL mode + mi flash tool+ China ROM + authorization from Xiaomi.
You can start ask for authorization on MIUI forum or write directly to Xiaomi.
There are possiblity to pay for authorization for 24 hours:

PS:
If you can enter the recovery mode then try to reflash latest China stable ROM.
But I guess not possible
