    Does anybody know the differences between the different WCDMA versions posted on miui.com ?

    There are 4 different WCDMA versions, is there a difference except the country names ?

    Here's the link :

    How come you don't get it? Every version is clearly labeled for exact phone. In the link there is only 1 rom per each Redmi and Redmi 1S phone. And you can install only 1 rom for your device.

    You have Redmi WCDMA (B) so you choose the right version for your phone.

    He is asking about the difference. You are not helping in any way... So what is the difference between Redmi WCDMA <standard>/Taiwan/Singapore/Hongkong and why are they not interchangeble?
    And also, is there a difference in hardware?

    Modem, baseband...

    You can only install rom for your hardware.

    CN/TW/HK roms are interchangable

    the difference of TW/HK is only in included gapps (and deleted xiaomi market/stuff)

    SG version expects the different memory partitioning and will cause bootloop for standard (CN) or TW/HK WCDMA phones.

    Many thanks to you for clarification.
    Do you have any clue why SG version has a different memory partitioning?

    Dont know actually, but I can suppose it was made to fit much bigger system partition (with full gapps included) cuz i had to delete some gapps from sg v12 rom (g+, maps etc) to port it to wcdma cn phone.
