Hi all.

I am currently on xiaomi.eu v11.0.6.0 (stable).
I'd like to upgrade to this 12.5 weekly. Is that possible or do I need to do a fresh install?

If upgrade is possible, what parts do I need to wipe before install?
You ~will have to format data (deletes almoat everhthing; apps, app data, files you've made etc.). To go back to stable, you'll probably have to redo it. To backup/restore, check swift backup, titanium backup, migrate, total commander.
I list some backupers here.

I thought for upgrades (stable to weekly) dirty flash is possible? I read it multiple times in this forum

Weekly ROM to weekly ROM you can install on top (dirty flash).
There is no reason why you cannot try to install the weekly on top of the stable. I would strongly recommend a full nandroid (TWRP) backup in case it does not work, and you can then restore and try again.

Same here. For me it freezes during/after a video playback on Youtube. Video finishes but the phone does not respond to any touches and gestures. I'm using Mi9T as well
Weirdly, I haven't had a single freeze today. So far it only occured at night. I did not change anything in regards to settings etc.

Just brace yourself, it will start again when you will need it most xD
I wonder what the devs have screwed up. You can miss some little bugs but this is not a little one.

I think you'd have to ask @Poney70, for this. I think he has found a way or something to do it, but it's probably better to do a clean flash.
Edit: No, poney found a way to do the reverse.

Thanks for answer. what gets specifically erased when formating data?
Format data deletes /data including internal storage (/data/media).
Factory reset deletes /data without internal storage (excluding /media folder when formating). It also deletes the cache and dalvik cache partitions (just cache).
Format data is ~the "nuke".

There's also the "advanced" tab where you can delete things seperately:
Cache deletes cache particion
Dalvik and cache deletes dalvik and cache partition
Data deletes /data without /media
Internal storage deletes /media (OR it deletes the whole /data partition)
Otg deletes the drive you've connected to the phone (you probably don't want this).

Besides people who have problems there are a lot of otherones that don't have serious problems. Personally I NEVER have had serious problems with weekly version. I think that it's probably depends of the model of phone and also how much are important for you functions (as for example "gestures"...). Serious problems can also happen if you don't respect exactly the process of first clean installation.

Hello,

Don't install this Weekly version on your Redmi K20 / Mi 9T, it's a bad update... :(

You should try to install 21.3.18 => https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/21-3-17-18.60386/

No need to wipe something but you can wipe Dalvik & Cache (after installing the new ROM).

Reboot then wait a few minutes (up to 10~15 mins) during the first boot. :)

Hi, I noticed a process called mi_reclaim with high cpu usage in FKM and at the same time, my device (mi 9t) heats up quit a lot. Been happening for a while, is this normal?
+1, k30Pro (lmi) mi reclaim used 12-14% cpu and boost litle cluster to 1.8 GHz, then phone hot.

Restarts/shutdown issues for davinci/tucana/phoenix should be fixed in next update (China ROM issue)
Is there any workaround to at least minimise them until then? Honestly, I'm too lazy to set up everything again because of three days ;)

Nope, I don't know about any workaround unfortunately...
