    Hello,
    I have a redmi note 5a which is brand new, i unlocked it successfully then flashed the official TWRP successfully too BUT then i flashed the xiaomi.eu ROM, I specify that there wasn't any error during the flash but when i chose "reboot system" the phone has powered off. From that moment, the phone isn't turning on if i push the power button, i tried to charge it and i see the white notification light turning on nothing more.
    Do you know what can i do to recover my phone ?
    Thank you in advance

    When I flashed TWRP I didn't know that you're supposed to flash a custom ROM immediatly after that or it'll revert back to stock recovery. Maybe your problem is somewhere in this region?

    The very least it should bootloop if something went wrong, I don't see why it wouldn't boot.
    This looks like a dead battery or a hardware problem to me.

    Have you tried booting it into recovery and/or fastboot? What about detecting it with MiFlashTool or whatever it's called these days?

    I think I saw some threads in miui.com about unbricking devices, you should look there.

    Yeah that's really weird i've never seen such a thing, when i flashed twrp i immediately flashed the Rom. The phone acts like it was dead so no recovery, no fastboot but a white led when i plug the usb cable. When i go to the windows 10 device manager, it detects a Qualcomm device so idk if i should try the testpoints

    The phone boots now ! It was hard bricked so i made an EDL Cable with a switch and i flashed the global stable rom and it worked.
    I think i flashed the wrong zip file because i took the redmi note 5a one instead of the redminote5ALITE one.
