I have gone through the process on my Mi 10 (umi), and had to log onto my Xiaomi account, and then reached the same page as you. It therefore seems to be working for me:
Thank you for your clear explanation. Actually I do not have any issue, just I was thinking if changes I made to try do it faster and optimize battery were good changes. And I not sure if with several updates there are files useless, you know.Is your phone showing any signs of it not working as expected? Are you getting corruptions, or error messages?
These would tell you if there is a 'need' to do it.
If you feel that it just needs 'refreshing', then you could do a Factory reset, for instance within TWRP. This would set everything back to its initial and default state (while probably leaving all of your files intact). Whereas a Factory reset from within the system (Settings) would erase everything.
I do not think that anything extra would be gained from a clean installation above a factory reset (unless there are obvious corruptions).
Hi, I am on Mi9SE... now I also put the latest EU ROM on my Phone. But every time I did this (also on Mi6), I lost Widevine Level 1... it goes to WV3... I tried with many ROMs down to Android 9, but it was always WV3... is there a possible way to install EU ROM without losing Widevine Level 1? I always hat to Format Data to bring the Rom to Life... thank you
I added a frame to the screenshot therefore photo. You are not the first person to tell me this works. I'm wondering why it doesn't work for me, and what could it be connected with. I flashed rom it clean. Thanks for ansver, i will try more...I have gone through the process on my Mi 10 (umi), and had to log onto my Xiaomi account, and then reached the same page as you.

[Edit: Because it is working for me, I do not know how to fix it!]
[Edit 2: I note that whereas my picture is a screenshot, yours is not - it is a photograph.]
I wonder if it is something to do with the Mi account? Maybe something has happened in the past, and it is protecting a potential problem in creating a new / different password account?I added a frame to the screenshot therefore photo.

i have mi9tpro(raphael) with last update 30\12 and i have system failture 07 when flash in twrpI have a davinci as well with TWRP 3.3.1-0 and when rebooting with this update it returns "System" failure and looping orange screen during boot. If I flash 20.12.10 it's ok
This seems to be tied to the wallpaper in use somehow. When I first flashed the updated, first thing I did was change to the new mountains super wallpaper. I noticed the greyscale was gone. After a few days I changed my wallpaper to a personal picture and noticed greyscale was back. I just changed it back to the mountain super wallpaper and again, greyscale is gone in bubbles.I have the same problem. Help please
