Except that I can use fastboot mode only with unlocked bootloader. I want only flash an official ROM. So which mode makes the phone more "original" status? (Now I'm on xiaomi.eu ROM, I want to start over the entire installation.)
I know, I asked it in official MIUI forum too, but there was a lot of spam because of the kernel source and nobody seen it. :p

All phones that are flashed to something else then China ROM, are flashed via EDL mode, since no unlock is needed.

Flashing in EDL mode is more dangerous as thats doing repartition and can break storage if something goes wrong..

Installing via Fastboot is more safe method but you need unlocked bootloader...
