Hi, I just unlocked my POCO F3. Currently it has MIUI 13.0.3 global stock ROM installed and i want to install MIUI 12.5.19 xiaomi.eu stable.

When i boot TWRP (Offical release: "twrp-3.6.1_11-0-alioth.img"- I wasn't able to boot the twrp-image file in "RUN_TWRP_Poco_F3_Toolkit") it shows that the internal storage has 0MB space. This is probably because TWRP does not support Android 12-decryption right now. The global stock has no password/PIN/pattern configured.

What is the best way to accomplish the installation of 12.5.19 with this setup?

Why i want to go 12.5.19 instead of 13.0.3? Because the TWRP-method is the safer/less-bricking flashing method. If i'm wrong, please correct me.

Thanks!

My Poco F3 hangs and the install window under windows disappears, tested on Win 11 and Win 10 and also with intel and AMD CPU. The phone is unlocked. Anyone got any ideas?

Edit:
had the wrong rom: xiaomi.eu_multi_HMK40Pro_MI11i_V13.0.8.0.SKKCNXM_v13-12-fastboot

now loading the correct one.

Is it working for you now? I was going to suggest testing the physical USB connections on your computer. I ran into a glitch as well, and after testing several things I found out it was the physical connection that was a bit flaky. I switched cables and ports and everything worked fine.

had loaded the wrong file, with this: xiaomi.eu_multi_HMK40_POCOF3_V13.0.5.0.SKHCNXM_v13-12-fastboot it worked.

does anyone know if you can transfer whats app data(chats and so on) from ios to android(xiaomi EU) with the xiaomi EU rom. of course with usb c to lighting cable.

Weekly ROM = test version with news where even more serious errors may occur.
Stable ROM = version intended for normal use.

Follow the instructions in the manual.

A doubt here.

I'm on the Poco F3 weekly rom, with Magisk installed, but every time I do the weekly update I need to install Magisk.
Magisk installation process that I do is by boot.img.

I would like to know if there is a possibility to update the rom weekly keeping Magisk.
