Hi,

is it possible to "transform" a Xiaomi 12 with China-ROM (china-import) to a global version?
Bootloader is unlocked.

So just grab the official global rom and flash it with miflash?

You mean it's the same procedure?

I only want to know, if i could change between china, official global or xiaomi.eu-ROM with the same piece of hardware.

You can change between ROMS, but you can't lock the bootloader if you are not using an official ROM matching the region of your phone (Chinese if I understand well). It is important because Miflash seems to lock the bootloader by default.

I also believe official ROMs cannot be downgraded (flashing a MIUI 12 over a MIUI 13 for exemple)

Okay thanks. Good to know.
So i can switch between ROMs. BL will stay unlocked, because MiFlash has an option for this.
