    No you will need to flash TWRP, do some careful research here, on XDA forums & follow all the instructions properly before you do anything.

    As I don't have a Mi Mix maybe ask @Kostas_F if you don't understand anything regarding flashing TWRP on a Mi Mix.

    Yes... but he more than likely has a Vendor ROM & that won't work.

    You won't have Google Play Store & it will most likely have some Chinese language in menus along with China apps etc.

    There are some guides for installing Play Store around though I don't know how successful they are.

    If you are not confident enough to install TWRP then stay on the ROM you have...

    But really it's not too difficult to install TWRP & flash the Xiaomi.eu ROM but it requires a bit of careful reading & the following of steps correctly.

    No you can't flash Xiaomi.eu ROM with a locked bootloader.

    The only way to flash Xiaomi.eu ROM is with TWRP recovery & for that to happen you need to unlock the bootloader.

    So the process is:
    1)Unlock bootloader
    2)Flash TWRP via ADB
    3)Flash Xiaomi.eu ROM with TWRP

    Yep exactly.

    Let me have a look around here & find a guide for you to read.
    Then I can talk you through it if you are still not confident.

    So that tutorial mentioned by Kostas_F seems to be the best & what is linked by Mi Mix users here on this forum also.

    http://en.miui.com/thread-471497-1-1.html

    Have a read through:
    Part 3 (flashing the Chinese ROM with Mi Flash)
    Part 4 (Flashing TWRP with ADB tools)

    I'm assuming you have a Windows PC?

    (As a side note)
    After flashing the Xiaomi.eu ROM you will need to flash the RC2 version of TWRP because of a touchscreen issue:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/mi-mix/development/recovery-official-twrp-xiaomi-mi-mix-t3498960

    If you want to continue, PM me if you like & I can walk you through the process from start to finish.

    i was thinking... if they were able to put that vendor rom, isn't the bootloader unkocked already?

    Most likely not, they use EDL or some other methods I'm not certain.

    Go to System/About Phone/Tap Kernel Version 5 times.
    Then have a look for the below:

    i used miflash app and after putting the phone in fastboot mode it is like this.
    looks like miflash can see the phone. i am quite confused now...should i proceed with miflash for flashing an official rom? i dont want to brick the phone...

    It looks okay to me.

    As long as you are following Part 3 & make sure you have downloaded the correct ROM you will be fine.

    Did you notice this?

    Part 3 - How to flash fastboot rom?

    Note: This method is only applicable for devices with an unlocked bootloader.
