I don't know what went wrong. I followed everything you had said but nothing. I'm stuck at the fastboot orange text.
try to flash again… use hub, usb2.0. describe what you did in detail. which script did you use and so on…

I downloaded the latest update (22.3.16). I extracted all files in folder. I used cmd and did the "cd c:\" and "dir". I did "fastboot devices" and it did show numbers. Then I followed "do this only if "fastboot devices" shows a number" and chose the weekly to weekly bat file. It finished with those errors i posted and my phone restarted but it went to fastboot mode again.

Hello
since many years I used the Global Phones. But now I want to import MI11 Pro.
The phone will come with TWRP / XIAOMI.EU ROM, but not with OTA.

If the OTA is possible, how am I able to use it? Will I lose data?

Also, I do not know how to use Fastboot. I think in the past, there was the tool called FLASH.
But I do not have any drivers installed, and I remember it was only possible if I use Windows 11 safe mode to get them installed.

What is the best procedure so long.

I am not sure if the procedure is not too complex, and I wait another month until TWRP which compatible is released.

OTA is not possible until a compatible TWRP is available (and there wasn't any for months now).

For the rest, I don't understand what is not answered by the first post.

Hi,

What I mean : thanks to this thread, I could flash rom with fastboot.
Then, I noticed there was a newer rom, more recent, so I downloaded this newest rom, then flashed with fastboot method (but without erase data)

Once I flashed my first xiaomi eu rom (I don't remember, maybe 13.0.1), once smartphone was configured, I looked at first page of Stable Roms topic, where there's a link to roms download (like sourceforge) and I noticed there was a new rom (13.0.7 or 9, whathever), so I downloaded the zip file.

Then I unzipped file, and fastboot flashed the update.bat.

Damn,
have a Mi 11 Pro with the latest 12.5 Stable installed. Wanted to update it to the newest 13.0.10 via fastboot but at the fastboot copy process i got an error with something like "cannot send" or " cannot write"
now nothing is starting up.. is there any solution? Also have some unsaved pictures on it.. im a dumba**

Edit: Forced Restart with holding the Power Button for 10 secs wont work.
I can hear the Plugged in Sound when i connect it to Win but it wont boot up
I think i used the wrong cable and didnt check for black screen before

Is there any solution for that?

contact unbrick / edl guy on telegram if you cant put your device in fastboot mode. without fastboot I have no solution

How to install a fastboot image

At the moment no OTA updates are possible because of no 100%.working TWRP (decrypt partitions)


- Perhaps you have an update info on your phone
-> Its only an info that an update is available
- Update is only possible with fastboot / PC and not with TWRP
-> You cant install it from phone download link

and here we go ....

- you need to unlock bootloader
-> a small [howto] to unlock bootloader
- install USB drivers & adb and fastboot tools
- install xiaomi drivers (sometimes necessary)
-> a small [howto] if you have driver issues

- create a directory "c:\test"
- download fastboot image for your phone to PC
-> choose stable or weekly like you want or need
- extract the fastboot image into this folder c:\test

- open "cmd.exe" on your PC
- change to directory were you have installed adb & fastboot
-> eg "cd c:\adb" hit RETURN and type "dir"
- there should be this files:

- connect PC and phone with USB cable
- put phone in fastboot (reboot phone and then holding "Volume -" and "Power on" buttons simultaneously)
- you should see a bunny picture and an info "fastboot" on the phone
-> on some devices you will see only orange info "FASTBOOT" and no bunny
1641373752213.png


please do this step to prevent from black window
- type in "cmd window": "fastboot devices" and hit RETURN
- check if you see a number (sometimes with characters)
-> then all is fine
1641373554513.png

- if you dont see a number:
change USB port / change USB cable / use USB 2.0 / use an USB Hub / check driver installation

do this only if "fastboot devices" shows a number / characters
- the "cmd window" should be open on PC
- change to "c:\test"
-> eg "cd c:\test" hit RETURN and type "dir" hit RETURN
- you should see the scripts with ".bat" at the end of filename

- start the appropriate bat-file
-> dont click it in explorer with mouse pointer
-> start the bat-file from command-line
-> then its possible to see errors

-> type in the "cmd window" windows_fastboot ... and hit RETURN

Which is the appropriate *.bat file you have to execute

- if you install the xiaomi.eu rom for the first time
- if you change from weekly to stable (recommended)
- if you change from stable to weekly (recommended)
-
you will loose your data -> make a backup

windows_fastboot_first_install_with_data_format.bat

- if you update from weekly to weekly
- if you update from stable to stable

windows_fastboot_update_rom.bat

PS: There are *.sh files for MAC & Linux as well
Linux HowTo

Thats all ... voilla .....


Here are some hints and solutions for issues:

Change between stable and weekly or vice versa
-> recommended choose the bat file with format in the filename

You can check if your device is unlocked
fastboot oem device-info
-> there is a line "Device unlocked = true or false"
--------------------------------------------------
If you dont see "Mi Unlock Status" in developer options
-> your device is also unlocked

Telegram, WhatsApp, Gmail, MI Backup issues
--------------------------------------------------
Settings> about phone> factory settings> erase everything

Permission app issues - clear data & cache
-> Settings > apps > manage apps > click "show all apps" from top right menu
-> Search for permissions
--------------------------------------------------
Fix it with giving that app all permission in first turn on

This info you can ignore while flashing
Sending 'storsecbak' (20 KB) OKAY [ 0.002s]
Writing 'storsecbak' FAILED (remote: '(storsecbak) No such partition')
fastboot: error: Command failed

Disable green icon until reboot (mic & camera security)
adb shell cmd device_config put privacy camera_mic_icons_enabled false default

Thx for some tips:
@geoorg / @h.gobbah / @LOLO9393 / @JiaiJ

# fastboot, install A12, OTA, update info, black window, driver usb, adb,
Nice! Thank you!
