??? I know what i.mi.com is. :)
It might be an issue with my account only - my region is bound to China and I can't change it on the web portal. Because of that I don't get PayPal as payment option, only AliPay, and that needs a domestic Chinese credit card.
I cannot change the region...
This is extremely strange. Mine is set to China, not PL? I can't check it in the ROM, though, only on i.mi.com
I also can't change the region in i.mi.com, as ingbrzy suggested? I am stuck on Chinese.
But as I wrote in the other chat: I will buy the Mi Credits via Hadron, that's the easiest...
Aaaah. That doesn't work because of the silly vendor ROM. Makes this incompatible.
I had to unlock.
My old DualBoot Mac at the end did the job. So completely nuts...
Took me all day to understand THAT bit. Thank you!
I get a non-starter with this ROM, but also come from a Three Vendor ROM in the UK that I had to kick off via unlocking of the bootloader.

Absolutely atrocious. Can't update anything anywhere.
I also can't unlock. I am not sure if the reason is that ROM or if there is another issue - but given how many different PCs I used, that can't...
Not my dream solution - as I would have wanted to switch to the EU ROMs, but I really don't get the bootloader unlocked. I have used three different PCs by now, I really don't know what to do anymore.
I will check if I can do this fastboot flashing, thanks for the hint!
Can you fastboot flash a rom without unlocking the bootloader?
I bought my phone - and that was a mistake - with a British retailer.
They must have gotten stock that was carrier bound, without telling you which carrier it is.
No chance to update OTA (because the carrier would have to approve...
