    I went into developer options and set the minimum width value which scales UI, from 320 to 1080. I sometimes changed the value and it worked fine, but maybe it was a bit too much this time. My screen went black for a few seconds, then had a load symbol. Now it is in a bootloop, where it also goes to BIOS for a while and I can choose 'reboot system', 'wipe data' or connect to Xiaomi PC suite. I installed that Xiaomi PC suite to my computer, connected the phone via USB and left it in that 'connect to suite' state, but the programm won't establish any connection. I defenitely want to avoid having to wipe the data.
    If I do nothing, it will reboot automatically after a while, but just ends up in the same menu, that's where it's a loop.
    I had absolutely no intention of getting my phone to this state while changing the minimum width value, so I would really appreciate to have it in it's usable state.

    Phone: Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro
    ROM / Android version: MIUI 12 / Android 10
    Root (yes/no): no
    Xposed, or any other modifications: no
    Any physical damage prior to defect: none

    Have you done a factory reset in recovery? That should get everything back to normal.

    As for the change...I'm curious to why? The setting was one I never changed and to me it says that you want the OS to force into landscape mode all the time. If I'm right, when you were in portrait, the OS had no idea what to do, so it forces a reboot.
