Hey,
Im on Mi 6, and this is the first time im going to install a custom ROM, currently still using stock MIUI 11. Is there a way to avoid doing Factory Reset or do I absolutely have to do it before installing?

Thanks guys

Hello,

There are no Stable MIUI 12 ROMs for Mi 6 (and certainly never have... because it's an old device). :)

Anyway if you plan to install a custom ROM, the bootloader of your device requires to be unlocked and this process will automatically format your data (unvoidable).

Thanks!
Also, why does the Mi6 appear on the following table:
I thought it means that it's possible to install MIUI12 on it...
The table only shows the "eligible" list of devices that should get MIUI 12. ;)

But Xiaomi doesn't seem to want to release MIUI 12 Stable for Mi 6 => https://piunikaweb.com/2020/07/17/x...ate-not-on-cards-says-mi-community-moderator/

EDIT: But the latest Weekly ROM version (20.6.18) is based on MIUI 12, it's available here => https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/20-6-18.56244/

:)
