Hi,

I hope someone has some understanding that they are able to share with me.

I currently have a Redmi K40 gaming edition phone.
It's NFC seems to be disabled due to the current rom that it has which i believe is MIUI Global 12.5.5.0 Stable (RKJINXM) with the poco launcher.
It also does not pass the safetynet test at the cts profile match elemnt as well as not being certified in play protect.

I am hopeing that changing the rom will fix this however i do not see it on the supported list of phones.
Is this likely to still cause a problem or could the rom still work with a fastboot install?

Otherwise does anyone have any suggestions to get NFC working, pass safetynet tests and play protect?

Any help is much aprechiated.

Thanks,

Hello,

Xiaomi.eu doesn't support devices with a MediaTek (=Dimensity/Helio) chipset.

To get NFC working => Flash any "China" ROM version.

To pass SafetyNet => Use Magisk (root) -OR- Flash any "China" Stable ROM version (AND lock the bootloader).

Who is so fearless to do anything that you mentioned on a mediatek cpu?

Thank you for the advice,
Is there much diffrence between the current rom version that i have compared to the china version?
Basicly will i lose access to the google apps or anything else that may be needed?

I have found the rom from this site would you be able to confirm if it can be trusted to use it?

The site is trusted. Install the fastboot version. China roms have more features that what you imagine. And google play services can be installed manually

Thank you, i will give that all a go now.
Aprechiate the help
Anytime
make sure that you've done everything properly otherwise you'll probably brick your device. MediaTek CPUs don't leave spaces for errors. Make sure you wont lock the bootloader in case of brick. You might be able to save it if you don't lock the bt

Hi all,

I have been able to download and boot into the chinese rom.
From what i can see there is a lot of settings that have been locked on it as well in terms of google and internet access to many sites.
I can see that the google play services is installed on the phone from the app settings but there is no google play app which i can actualy use.
i have tried downloading the a google play apk to install it that way but the phone won't install an "older version" that what is currently installed.

I am honestly not quite sure what to do to fix this.
I can see that the phone can be rooted using magisk but i am not sure how far that will get me as it seems that it will be stuck some chinese restrctions.
Would the root kit be able to unrestrict the internet too?

Thanks again

I would just live without NFC.
But you could also flash the newest Chinese ROM with NFC and then you just have to install Google Play Store from the "Get Apps" store which comes with the Chinese ROM. This also works fine. On YouTube there are many videos and guides on how to install it on the Chinese version.
