My Mi 11 Ultra has an update (to miui 12.5 and 13) (in updater it says v13.0.5.0) I am running stable v12.5.17.0.

If i were to update, would i lose all my data on the phone? And should i go to v12.5.20.0 first before updating to miui 13? Or can i go straight from v12.5.17.0?

Whats the best way to update without having to reinstall everything on my phone?

Thanks

You are not expected to loose data, and you don't need to preupdate.

For the rest just follow the instructions, there is one batch dedicated for update that won't format data. A backup is still a good idea.

Thanks. The only miui 13 release is for fastboot. My current rom is a twrp release. Can I update using the fast boot method even if I am currently on twrp?

Yes, I believe you will lose the TWRP in the process.
