    I can’t install any rom on my Xiaomi MI A1. Help me!

    Every Rom I install, sometimes via TWRP or MIFLASH. When I’m in the initial settings,
    the phone freezes and restarts. Only one rom entered the home screen of apps,
    but with little time it freezes and restarts. Before changing the battery, I had already installed the same rom,
    in this case, Pixel Experience 10 and installed it correctly.

    Now, after the exchange, this is happening in all rom. Some help? Appreciate!
