    MIUI 13 22.4.27/29

    Mix 4 owners: I have a new Mix 4 on the way to me in the UK, and am trying to decide what to do when it arrives given the ROM problems. What would you do? Stick with the Chinese ROM? Go straight to stable? Or, as MSAR93 suggests further back in the forums, go to weekly 22.2.23?

    Where have you bought Mix 4? Is worth to buy or not?

    Trading Shenzhen have just told me on webchat support they no longer ship to the UK owing to Brexit. I'd tried to order the Mix 4 on their site but the GB/UK option isn't available any more. Does anyone have any other ideas?

    8.2.1

    Yeah. Pretty used to the procedure after doing it each week for the last couple of years on the Mi Note, and now Mix 2. First time I've ever seen a ROM fail to boot completely.

    8.2.1

    This ROM doesn't work at all on my Mix 2. After flashing via TWRP, it boots and displays an undismissable 'Application Extension Service' error. I've tried both the file on Sourceforge - xiaomi.eu_multi_MIMix2_8.2.1_v9-7.1.zip - and the file on Androidfilehost -...

    I downloaded flashify. It tells me it requires root, which presumably I don't have. It's pretty dismal. I mean, I'm not gonna go and buy a Windows PC just to be able to update my phone. I'm a bit of a Xiaomi fan - have the Mi Note, Mi Band, Mi Bank, Yeelight Lamp, Pistons. But xiaomi.eu is...

    All Xiaomi devices received a xiaomi.eu ROM update 6.2.25 that installed twrp automatically except the Mi Note. Apparently we Mi Note users have to use fastboot and a PC instead. I don't know why.

    I don't have a PC, and fastboot requires one. Feels like we Mi Note users have been left out of the loop a bit here.

    Alas, no. Thank you (and thanks to @Meforsi too) but Flashify tells me I have no root access. Not sure what to try next. @ingbrzy, is there a version of 6.2.25 for the Mi Note that would let me get twrp and update like all the other Xiaomi users?

    Not for the Mi Note. Mi Note was postponed that week. See the top of the 6.2.25 post.

    Thank you, @Meforsi - constructive advice! I'll give this a go now.

    That was the first ROM that locks the bootloader, no? I'd rather not - that's why I'm still on 6.2.18...

    MULTI 6.5.12

    OK, I'm getting entirely exasperated here, trying to update. I'm almost resigned to staying on 6.2.18 forever. I've tried to follow @ingbrzy in his instructions on the first page: no dice. But then as I noted before, the instructions are completely inadequate. @adrisouto96 described installing...

    Does the twrp.zip file have to be renamed in order to install it via the updater app?
  14. B

    MULTI 6.5.12

    Thank you. I have done this - the first method, that is, as I do not have a PC. It didn't do anything: when I reboot to recovery, there is no TWRP, but the old Mi Recovery. SRD971 in post #184, above, mentions re-naming twrp.zip to update.zip. Is that the step that's missing?

    MULTI 6.5.12

    Honestly guys, these instructions are completely inadequate: "Install TWRP via updater app or fast boot mode". For ordinary, non-techy users like me, who have got used to updating by downloading the xiaomi.eu ROM each week, this instruction might as well be in Chinese. Is there any clear...
