First of all: Hello! (no, not from the other side...) i just bought an mi4 and googled all day about getting a good rom with a good translation. That´s why i´m here. I also found some instructions on how to upgrade my phone to Android6 (MIUI7), but some instructions are quite unclear for me. I hope you are not offended if i ask something, but i did not find the answers by searching through this forum (or the answers are not clear enough for me :-( ) So i found this little beast ans added a few questions): How to update Xiaomi Mi3/4 and MiNote from 4.4 to 6.0: - Install MIUI 5.12.17 2x via Updater app first to merge your system partitions (no more dual system support) My Questions: 1. The update to 5.12.17: Do i install the with the original chinese updater or do i need to flash an older version of xiaomi.eu-rom first? 2. i did not find a 5.12.17-Version of cancro on this side, am i just blind or is it not necessary? - After reboot install current 6.1.28/29 version - let it boot and update all apps, then reboot again.. My Questions: 3. Which Version of 6.1.28/29? The one from the original updater app or the one from xiaomi.eu?- Wipe data not needed but recommended My Questions: 4. If you say wipe Data: wipe Dalvik? Wipe Cache? Wipe User-Data? I´m really not sure :-\ Some other Questions: 5. What would be the easiest way to upgrade a fresh bought mi4 cancro to MIUI7 on Android6 (likely to 7.2.8)? 6. Can anyone explain me if i have to flash TWRP on my own or if it´s beeing installed together with some rom versions here from xiaomi.eu? 7. Since one of the newest versions is 7.2.8: Do i have to install the above mentioned 6.1.28/29 or can i just upgrade from 5.12.17 to 7.2.8 ? 8. If my bootloader is not unlocked: i cannot change the rom? O can i change to xiaomi.eu-Rom with a locked bootloader if i want 7.2.8? (i already requested my unlock @ xiaomi but i know it takes time). //edit 9. i now found 5.12.17 as download but i´m still not sure i f i need to unlock bootloader first or if i can do all this magic from xiaomi.eu with my original-bootloader and my original MIUI based on KK4.4.4)...it would be very nice if someone would lighten me up! Thanks //\edit Thank you very much for your patience and reading my question. Thank you also for answering my questions if possible. With best regards!
