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

when you fire up Unlocker it should show your device when it is connected by USB

if it doesn't pick it up, you have to install the driver if you're on Windows

As above, the more details the better...

Little help for those who struggle installing 12.5.12 like me:
- Install 12.5.9 fastboot ROM
- Download 12.5.12 recovery ROM
- Use TWRP included with 12.5.9 to install 12.5.12

Hi!

8 year iphone user here, just made the switch to Xiaomi Mix 4 2 weeks ago.

I live in Europe - Romania, so I brought the phone from an online store based in my country. I overpaid because I could have ordered it myself from Trading Shenzhen, but I didn't know better.

When I got the phone out of the box, I checked for updates, found that there was a new version available, downloaded it, hit install and I was shocked by the ancient update interface and extra "installs" I had to tap (TWRP) ... again, I just didn't know better at the time, imagine coming from iphone to this But a little research later, I kinda figured out how things work with Xiaomi (China, EU, Global ROMs) it's OK.

(I will post 2 screenshots below)

when I tap download, it says mirrors are offline. I incline to believe that this is the updater notifying me that there's a new version available (but only via fastboot).

I don't have a computer to update my device, so I have only one question: Will stable MIUI 13 XIAOMI.EU ROM be available at some point via updater ?

It's strange that a flagship phone like this is not fluid at all. Even when I enter settings, I tap on the icon and it takes like a hiccup until it actually enters the settings, other apps the same, hit or miss every time.

I made the switch to Xiaomi because a year ago I bought for my dad a mi 10t pro, I played a few days with the phone, setting it up and all, and I don't remember any hiccups like on this one.

Thanks for the answers ! Cheers!

So why buy a phone that is not intended for international use?
You have bought a model designed only for the Chinese market, which does not have the official ROM installed but (modified) custom ROM xiaomi.eu

It offers you an update to MIUI 13 with Android 12.
Because TWRP does not work with android 12 yet, you need to update using fastboot mode.

When the functional TWRP for android 12 is available you will be able to update without a PC.
