0. Use "MI8 TWRP" on "MI8 Explorer Edition" and install custom ROM
1. open downloaded custom "rom.zip"
2. go to -> \xiaomi.eu_multi_MI8Explorer_V10.0.4.0.OEHCNFH_v10-8.1.zip\META-INF\com\google\android\
3. edit -> updater-script
4. change -> getprop("ro.product.device") == "ursa" to getprop("ro.product.device") == "dipper"
5. enjoy :)

Good news here guys.
I found this TWRP recovery modded for our specific phone, MI 8 EE URSA, made by the modder BB72.
Download link: https://drive.google.com/uc?authuser=0&id=1jpeSarFRrjuYFEvW-guMIABgmZukC9eh&export=download

I found this in an Italian blog, I paste here the link but if it's against the forum rules I remove it: http://blog.**********.net/xiaomi-mi-8-explorer-flash-eu-rom/

I haven't tried yet but it should work.

With this no need to modify the room filename in dipper. Just download the eu rom and flash.

Thank you for your reply.
Why did you change the installer from URSA to Dipper?
Did your installation/update was done on Mi8 standard version, not the EE one?
If you use the TWRP from "MI8" on the "MI8 EE" then you have to change the board name in the "custom_rom.zip" coz the "Mi8" TWRP needs the board name from "Mi8" its called "dipper"

I need to wait 720 hours to unlock bootloader :/ this is so bad for xiaomi...
why some have to wait 72h, 360h, 720h and over 1000 hours? How xiaomi decides how many hours someone should wait?
