As the title says...
I have tried flashing around the last couple of days getting nowhere closer.
After finally figuring out how this A/B partitioning/flashing dual boot-recovery system works on this phone (flashing used to be so easy!)....
and with TWRP working at the moment after days of trying to get it running (there are loads of flashing instructions that are plain dysfunctional) ....
I have finally got to the point where I was able to load the "xiaomi.eu_multi_MI6X_V10.0.2.0.ODCCNFH_v10-8.1.ZIP" (as provided here) with TWRP from my internal phone storage (renamed as update.zip) ....
... and then it told me that I cannot flash it because my device is a Jasmine (Mi A2, Android One) and not a Wayne (Mi 6X). Ah, as if I didn't know.

How do I convert it with that EU MIUI 10 version above (not the China original MIUI 10 as to avoid that ARB thing). How do I flash the MIUI 10 onto my Mi A2?

Yes, phone is unlocked.

Yes, critical is unlocked.

Magisk v.17 has been installed via TWRP. (not sure if it worked though, let alone necessary as I am too hesitant to log out of TWRP and lose its working status again).

Tried sideloading the zip via ADB. Unsuccessful.

Tried the MiFlashTool. Unsuccessful.

And finally the TWRP. Unsuccessful.


Anyone with a success story here with baby-step-by-step instructions?

I forgot to delete UPDATE-FOLDER and ARB 4 is activated now. ( but I dont regret it. but be carefull , and if you ask me, it wouldn't such that bad to trigger the ARB 4 even intentionally! )

If you run Android 9 , TWRP wont be compatible , use PitchBlack.
