Hi :)

Sorry bothering but I need a little help with something that I don't understand.

Is there possible to flash EU rom without unlock my POCO F3 through xiaomimitool v2 ?

I have bought it in Albania, but understand that there are no call recordings only after i unbox it :(, i have read on forum that the EU rom developed here has this feature and optimized many other more, the only doubt that I have is that can that be flashed without unlock the phone or not. I don't want to unlock because i loose my bank application when the phone is unlocked.

Hope you forgive me bothering, and understand my situation :)

Thanks in advance !

NO! You have to unlock the bootloader and then welcome to the club!

You CAN'T relock the bootloader when you have a custom ROM installed on your device.

Xiaomi.eu ROMs include workarounds to hide the bootloader unlocked state. ;)
Thanks, is there any manual to do it right ? I will be very thankful. Thanks again

Future updates are via TWRP, but there is an included updater that make it as OTA-like as possible, it warns you of the update, download the file, and reboot to TWRP trying to automatically install the file.

Thanks, this will not delete my files right?
