For anyone thats intrested, this has annoyed me for some time, I did this on my X3 NFC (12.5) and now the F3 5G (13)
# its a work around for non root users #

>Make sure u have a back up of ringtones and notifications on your PC
>Factory reset the device
>Startup without logging into anything or restoring anything (Key here)
>Once into phone and your set to basic and ready to go, plug into PC copy over all Tones required to relavant folders onto phone
>Open the settings for changing tones, everything here now works
I loaded all tones i could ever want inc msg tones, ringtones even for callers, just keep selecting a ringtone, going back select again etc, works for both sims until your ringtone list shows them all.
>Set ones u want - I blank the main notification tone to nothing (manually change them later in apps before restoring though) < at this point i would suggest apps like whatsapp / Discord / Steam chat / Line, you change the tones now before going any further or you may not be able to change them later and they get set to the master notification thats set.
>Lastly Setup Mi & google accounts as required and restore what you want.

OK this is a very long winded route i admit, but works each time, however, minute you change the themes app or update stuff you maybe locked out once again. So i find this could be a 1 hit wonder till i get around to unlocking the bootloader and installing recovery program.
After spending an hr setting things back up all tones are still there and changable all the time - still working around the silly independant msg tone

All this to have separate ringtones????
I have mi 11 lite 5g and this is the worst phone i have ever had in my life. Proximity sensor dont work, calednar not syncing, when you set personal tone to contact you dont see it.
The true fact is last huawei i had was rolls royce compared to xiaomi. I will sell this phone and return back to huawei. It is easier to install google and have a perfect phone.
I regret the day i bought xiaomi.
And software on huawei si so more intuitive i and easier to use, from dialing from two sims, to sending sms (changing from which sim)... Comparing xiaomi to huawei (or samsung) is like driving $10k car and $100$.
If i didnt try i would not believe how many bugs this phone has, from software to hardware... It is just broken.
And no... I will not waste may time reseting my phone for f... ringtone to work! I am not some kid with plenty of time. I just want to hear by ringtone how is calling me. Is that so fu... hard??
And of course, to have a phone call and not messing my phone with face beacause proximitiy sensor doesnt work...

its up to you if you want to install a beta version.

I only made this guide to help.
