Hello. I changed to my old mi4 to flash the newest Xiaomi.eu rom to my MI8SE... Because my recovery was f*** up...

What have i done?

1. I flashed china-rom "sirius_images_V10.3.1.0.PEBCNXM_20190418.0000.00_9.0_cn" via fastboot (worked)
2. I flashed TWRP "TWRP-3.2.3-1227-XIAOMI8SE-CN-wzsx150" via fastboot (worked)
3. I flashed xiaomi.eu rom "xiaomi.eu_multi_MI8SE_9.5.9_v10-9" via TWRP and USB-OTG (worked)
4. I wiped cache and rebooted - Only fastboot mode available

Again

5. Flashed china-rom "sirius_images_V10.3.1.0.PEBCNXM_20190418.0000.00_9.0_cn" via fastboot (worked)
6. Flashed another TWRP "TWRP-3.3.0-0423-XIAOMI8SE-CN-wzsx150" (worked)
7. Flashed the same Xiaomi-eu Rom again, and rebooted without wipes

Again stuck in Fasboot mode...

I have no more ideas, is it now impossible to install an xiaomi.eu rom on this device? Sad!

I would appriciate help very much! Greetings!

Install the version of paragraph 3 that you say worked for you and then only update using the tool to the latest version.

You are aware, you need to format data (not just wipe) prior flashing this Rom?

You will loose all data!

So make an external backup.

Offcouse, i wanted to set up the device fresh anyway... Now i tried the latest china developer rom as basic, twrp0423 again and the latest xiaomi.eu rom...
After that, i did an complete wipe - dalvik/art, cache and data.

Same thing. Just fastboot mode after restart. That sucks!

No wipe! Format, confirmed by typing “yes“, you did that?

Nope. completely? Data, system?
FORMAT DATA with YES as confirmation (in TWRP WIPE section) is MANDATORY after fastboot CN ROM installation.
Your 2 trials are both valid, if /With Format data done before point n°3.
In case of unsuccessful you have to return to an OREO CN fastboot rom and TWRP 1102 in order to refresh the partitions.

Isn't there an anti-flash protection for older android versions? Will try to completely format the system before flash this evening

1. Flash latest China Beta via MiFlash
2. Flash TWRP 1227 or newer
3. Format Data
4. Flash Xiaomi.eu 8.x.x (for example 8.12.27)
5. Reboot system
6. Will work, setup
7. Reboot to TWRP, Install latest Xiaomi.eu
I had same issue, but solved this method.

YES!

That worked! Thank you very much!
This should be pinned as the ultimate solution for this device, i can't imagine that i'm the only one with this issue!
