Same as if the bootloader of the device is already unlocked then you may boot the device into fastboot mode and then can install stock rom using Mi flash tool easily. Both methods can be perform if the device is ON condition and you are able to access your device setting.
But what if the bootloader of Xiaomi Mi 6 is locked or Device stuck on MI account verification screen or device stuck on Mi logo or bootloop or you are unable to boot the device into fastboot mode? In that type of critical situation EDL mode is the only solution which can help you to unbrick the device again.
Just boot the device into EDL mode or emergency downloading mode and flash MIUI fastboot rom /firmware using Mi flash tool. It will fix the all existing errors or you can recovery your dead phone again.
