Hi there!

I've been using the Xiaomi EU 12.5 for about two months, but now i want to update to 12.6.
I've already downloaded the ROM file but now I don't remember how to flash it, I've read that it was to be a clean flash because they're different versions.
Dow anyone have any guide or can explain more or less how to do it? Do I have to use TWRP or do I need to flash from PC?

Thanks.

Hello! :)

To clean flash/install a ROM, you can:

Use TWRP => Flash the ROM and go back in main TWRP's menu after ROM installation => Go in "Wipe" menu => Tap on "Format Data" button => Type "yes" to confirm => After that, go back in main TWRP's menu => Go in "Recovery" menu => "System"

Hi there. Does it matter if we format data before installing the ROM? Because it is mentioned in the every 1st post of stable/weekly thread. Thanks.

Hello, no it doesn't matter. Format data before installing the ROM => You may have an issue to copy the ROM in the internal storage of your phone.

You will never have this issue if you format data after installating the ROM.

After formatting data, i always reboot recovery so as to copy the rom into my phone properly. So, it seems that everything i do during the clean installation is correct as per the instructions and also your explanation. Thanks a lot... :)
