1) First back up your all data. You can use settings>Additional Settings> Back up and Reset> Local Back up and select all.
2)Rename the Xiaomi.eu Rom zip file to "update.zip" (All lower case letters) and place the file in the root directory of your phone. (Where folders like Android, Bluetooth is located) Then power off your device and boot into recovery by pressing the volume up button and power button simultaneously)
3) In recovery you browse through options with volume buttons and select with power button.
4) From recovery Go to wipe and Reset and then select "Wipe User Data" and wait for it to complete.
5)Then go back and select "install zip from system". Wait till it finishes and then reboot.
6) Then restore your backup.
