    Can I update from miui v6 kk (xiaomi.eu_multi_aries_5.3.20) to the last lollipop using Updater?
    Must I have the cwm recovery to wipe if needed? or can I use the mi recovery?
    Thank you in advance

    In CWM with lollipop wipes don't work. I used TWRP (but it hasn't TDB)

    This is what I did.

    Flash lollipop over kk
    Flash gapps, do a wipe cache and dalwik cache and flash over them
    this play service.

    No data lost, but some apps need lollipop version.

    No, switch to system 1 (system0 partition) and flash TWRP.
    TWRP doesn't have TDB support, so you can modify only system 1 (system0 partition)

    I learned I don't need TDB, I use one system at time

    It depends. If you want smiui you need CWM or TWRP. If you want Xiaomi.eu release you can flash it by updater. But for gapps and fixed play services I don't know... You can try do to it with mirecovery. If it doesn't accept those zips, you need CWM/TWRP. If it accept I don't know if wipe cache and dalvik works.

    I ear that is a Miui v6 bootloader problem. I don't know how you can solve it.

    Maybe you can try to flash with adb. Extract .img file from .zip file.
    Use those commands in adb:

    adb reboot bootloader
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
