    MIUI 13 MIUI 13 STABLE RELEASE

    You can ignore any step in instructions that tell you to install TWRP. You just need to boot into TWRP (bootloader boot TWRP.img or TWRP.exe--whatever the file extension is). That will open TWRP on your phone which you use to flash the ROM zip. If you follow the instructions step by step (but...

    MIUI 13 MIUI 13 STABLE RELEASE

    Normally but if you have a MI 11 nearly all of them are the Chinese hardware version with the bootloader unlocked and the Global ROM installed. If you try to update the official Global ROM the Chinese MI 11 is really prone to bricking. Most people think it's a hard brick because you can't flash...

    With the Chinese recovery the top option is to reboot your phone so all you need to do to get out of that is hit the power button for enter. There might be another menu with two options but you just hit power again and your phone will reboot. If you were going to install the official ROM the...

    That version of TWRP worked for me but the tutorial on how to install TWRP should be ignored. It was designed to install TWRP before there was a working version of TWRP on Android 12. All people need to do is boot into TWRP (bootloader boot TWRP.img) and install the recovery ROM zip. For the MI...

    That worked. Thank you. I haven't run MIUI EU in a couple of years. The next time there is an update can MIUI EU be updated via OTA or will it need to be updated with fastboot again?

    I'm already running 13.08.0. Are you saying to reflash 13.0.8.0 fastboot ROM and then go straight to the steps for installing the 13.0.9.0 recovery ROM?

    MIUI 13 MIUI 13 STABLE RELEASE

    After my latest failed attempt my phone seems to think that I tried to update via OTA and wants me to hit the update button to complete the process--which obviously isn't going to work since the stock recovery is still installed on my phone. I don't think I've ever had so much trouble...

    I haven't been successful so far. I was also trying to find someone who successfully upgraded on the MI 11 to find out exactly how they did it.

    This is the first stable recovery ROM for the MI 11. The previous build was a fastboot ROM. I need to install the recovery ROM version using TWRP for the first time and so far I haven't been successful. I also haven't found a message from anyone else who has been successful with the MI 11...

    Not that I have been successful so far but you aren't clicking a fastboot.exe or a twrp.exe installation file. You need to put your TWRP image into the folder where your fastboot files are, open a command prompt window in that folder and then type in the command: fastboot boot twrp.img That...

    OK. Removing my PIN did allow me to see the ROM zip on my phone but when I try to install the ROM I'm getting error messages for failing to mount system root, system .ext, and product so I guess that's some progress.

    MIUI 13 MIUI 13 STABLE RELEASE

    Maybe using minimal ADB and fastboot is causing problems and I need to go back to the full platform tools but I have already tried both with no success so far. I even tried XiaoMIToolv2 out of desperation which automates the installation process for MIUI EU and that's failing during the TWRP...

    MIUI 13 MIUI 13 STABLE RELEASE

    I can't tell if TWRP for the MI 11 is working right or not because I can't find a post where someone successfully installed the recovery ROM on their MI 11. Maybe somebody did and I'm missing the post but it looks like everyone who has successfully installed the recovery ROM so far did it on a...

    MIUI 13 MIUI 13 STABLE RELEASE

    I already read that multiple times and I already tried that multiple times before I posted my message. Nothing in that guide is allowing me to install the new recovery version of MIUI13 over the fastboot version of MIUI13 because nothing that I have tried allows me to decrypt the data on my...

    MIUI 13 MIUI 13 STABLE RELEASE

    I have been trying to install the new recovery ROM update on my MI 11 and I can not get TWRP to decrypt the data on my phone. I am using the recommended version of TWRP from this thread and it does not decrypt. It doesn't ask for my PIN number when TWRP boots up and if I try to decrypt data...
