Should I install this first before the rom? Do you have directions on that? Thank you. I see some google search results but want to make sure they're legit.
you HAVE to install / boot it before the rom, coz with the TWRP you can install then the xiaomi.eu rom

The latest stable uploaded yesterday with the Boost Chrge feature is for TWRP (not fastboot) but is over 3.5GB. I thought any ROM over that size had to be fastboot for MIx 4? Anyone care to confirm that larger file sizes can now be flashed with TWRP? Should there be a fastboot version in that case?

You usually need to wipe if you switch between Weekly and Stable.

Weekly to weekly you dont
Or stable to stable.
Today I switched from stable to weekly using fastboot and I succeeded. I did not use the (install with format data) option, I clicked on update.bat
I started the system without any problems.

I'm stuck with Error 1 when trying to flash the latest stable via the latest TWRP. Not sure what I'm missing here to fix this? Does system have to be mounted? Currently only Data is mounted.

Trying to write the fastboot version and opening windows_fastboot_first_install_with_data_format does nothing. CMD opens for a split second and disappears. WIth our without 'Run as admin'. So currently I cannot flash the Stable via TWRP due to Error 1, nothing happpens when trying to flash the fastboot, and the phone only boots to Fastboot. So this is a nightmare. Can anyone please help?

Ensure your device is properly recognized by fastboot.
Open cmd in the platform-tools-windows subdirectory and type "fastboot devices". If this doesn't show an entry for your phone make sure the following is true:
-the phone is started in fastboot mode (google how to do it if not sure, or even if you think you are)
-the phone is connected to the computer with the original usb cable that comes with it
-adb drivers are installed on the computer. Check device manager to see if the device appears correctly installed. If you see exclamation mark or you are not sure I recommend installing "xiaomitool v2", it should install all the drivers you need.
-if you still don't see your device when you run "fastboot devices" watch this video and follow the instructions:

if you see the device with "fastboot devices" but the script still doesn't do anything make sure you have the correct ROM downloaded for your device and that you have unlocked bootloader.
If you are sure you meet ALL those perquisites and still can't install the fastboot then you can try the other twrp (there are two available : https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=324403)
In general the fastboot method seems foolproof so if it doesn't work for you are missing something important.

Ultimately I had to pay a Vietnamese guy I found on Facebook to take remote control and I watched but it was a complex process that took nearly 90 minutes to get the Xiaomi EU ROM flashed after going back to stock ROM. Nightmare few hours. Won't be trying to flash anything again quickly.

.. ... The process takes about five minutes when it works

This is a real shame. The ROM is very good though so you will be able to just keep it for a while!

I was wondering, is there a reason the newest update 12.5.12 isn't available as a fastboot? TWRP hasn't been officially released right?

Thanks for the reply. Yeah I'm on Odin. So it's safe to use that TWRP? Because I didn't find one on the official site and basically the entire internet was like: don't you even dare to install a non official TWRP
