Fastboot stuck in 'sending'.

    Hey guys, last week I've got my hands on a brand new Redmi Note 5 Pro and wanted to install twrp on it so I can do the good stuff ( root, adblocking, custom roms, etc... ). The bootloader is unlocked. OEM Unlocking is turned on in Developer options and also is USB Debbuging. But fastboot simply doesn't do anything, when I try to flash something it just shows me this:

    Sending 'recovery' (42452 KB)

    And that stays there forever, until I'm forced to unplug the device and it returns with this:

    FAILED (Status read failed (No such device))

    Simply nothing happens, I tried flashing it, booting it, tried the orangefox image instead but it always does this, can someone help me here?

    are you sure you are in the right directory where your fasboot and adb files are in? is there a way you can post a screenshot of your commands?

    The commands are being made inside the adb/fastboot folder, all the files are in there, and my phone is being detected. But it gets stuck forever in "Sending 'recovery' (42452 KB)"

    maybe try using a different cable? and are we sure you are using the correct twrp for your device?

    As mentioned above a cable & or usb port. Or possibly outdated fastboot files. Try this type ./fastboot then drag the recovery into terminal and press enter.

    I've seen Macs that don't like the ./fastboot try just fastboot flash etc. Linux and Mac as far as terminal commands are about the same.

    Just fastboot doesn't work on linux because you need to adress the script/file itself with ./
    I'll try the drag n' drop thingy.

    Yes, I've tried the original and other USB cables, tested all my computer's USB ports and the TWRP file is from the twrp website it self and it is the correct one for my model.

    Outdated fastboot files are not possible as I'm using the latest files from google themselves.

    Should I try the archlinux android-tools package? People said to me it could brick my phone so I'm scared to use it.

    Okay 2 questions is the bootloader unlocked?

    2nd question are you using USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ports?

    Yes bootloader is unlocked, OEM unlocking is enabled and so is USB debugging in developer options.
    I've tried both USB 3.0 and 2.0 with the same result.

    Same recovery just different sources. I would use the xda link, delete the other recovery.

    Boot into fastboot, type fastboot flash recovery, drag the new recovery into terminal, press enter. I don't rename the .img files.

    Just out of curiosity what happens if you use fastboot boot ( drag recovery into terminal) and press enter.

    No harm no foul if it doesn't work but in theory you should be able to boot TWRP

    Odd... You don't have access to a Mac or Windows PC? Probably a whole lot easier. Linux can be a finicky beast.
