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.

    just keep holding Volume Up + Power until TWRP logo (recovery mode) is visible

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.
