I am trying to flash my device(Redmi S2/Y2). I unlocked the bootloader and I tried flashing Orange Fox recovery from fastboot.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Minimal ADB and Fastboot>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
target reported max download size of 534773760 bytes
erasing 'recovery'...
OKAY [  0.020s]
sending 'recovery' (38400 KB)...
OKAY [  0.925s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [  0.189s]
finished. total time: 1.159s

C:\Program Files (x86)\Minimal ADB and Fastboot>fastboot boot recovery.img
downloading 'boot.img'...
OKAY [  0.879s]

It was stuck at booting... every time I tried. While trying some solutions, I messed up and now I am stuck at bootloop. Any solutions to this?

  • Are you sure the recovery image is compatible with the device, i.e. maybe model no. It goes to bootloop if you flash wrong files.

It worked out, it turned out to be a hardware problem that didn't let me use the Volume Up + Power Key for Recovery Mode.
