Did you try to flash xiaomi.eu rom over official rom?

?? You were trying to flash xiaomi.eu via the updater app on the original bundled (probably fake) rom?? Or are we understanding incorrectly? And how were you trying to flash the recovery?

Please read a hell of a lot before doing anything to your phone if youre not sure what youre doing, and if after reading youre still not sure, just ask. Because flashing xiaomi.eu over the official firmware via updater app is useless, and doing things over fastboot if your devices bootloader is unlocked will get you a brick most probably.

Please start by telling us what is the state of your device. What ROM version does it have, is it unlocked, what where you trying to do, can you access EDL... etc...

Still, what device are you using? 4/4A/4Pro? And can you post screenshot of what ''fastboot oem device-info'' comand outputs?

Thats your problem right there. If you had used the official method for unlocking, you would have ''Device critical unlocked: true''. The method you used (unlock-go) doesnt actually unlock the bootloader completely, as it will later relock and or make your device brick itself. What you have to do now is try to enter EDL, and flash a official fastboot rom over it, this will clear your data and ''relock'' your bootloader. Then after youre on official ROM (China Dev, not stable) apply for unlocking the bootloader and use official Mi Unlock method to unlock it.

ok, and how can i boot to edl?
At start i was trying to officially unlock, i have applyed in the past for the mi4c, but it always halted at 50%, from the false rom i suppose.

Youre supposed to flash via EDL to China Dev to oficially unlock, as unlocking from fake/shop roms cant be done. Use @fast83 's guide in this forum to enter EDL and flash the correct china dev rom

Noooo, use Mi Flash Beta to flash it, follow the guide. Stop using command line until you succesfully unlock fastboot. And remember that when you unlock fastboot you cant flash official roms or you will relock the bootloader and you can only unlock once per month
