    Hi,

    I flashed a rom when I bougth mi 4c almost 2 years ago and flashed rom 6.12.22 a few months ago. So I do not know much about how to proceed.

    I have my mi 4c with rom 6.12.22 and TWRP 3.0.2.0 right now.
    I have downloaded 7.2.9 firmware, rom 7.2.9 and twrp 3.1.1.1

    What should I do the next?

    1. install 7.2.9 (firmware) with TWRP 3.0.2.0
    2. In TWRP flash new TWRP 3.1.1.1
    3. Reboot in recovery.
    4. Flash rom 7.2.9 or can I flash any other rom? If I can flash any rom, which one do you recommend?
    5. Wipe cache/ dalvik cache
    6. reboot phone.

    In case in step 4 I have to flash rom 7.2.9 would I be able to flash after step 6 a different rom or will my bootloader will be locked.

    Thanks in advance.

    Flash 7.2.9 ...afterwards unlock bootloader if becomes locked...then you can Flash other ROMS....the reason for flashing 7.2.9 is other versions have a different bootloader...if you do it with this method you avoid the wrong bootloader....

    Hi again,
    First of all I would like to thank you for your advices. I flashed the rom as you described and everything worked fine. I do not know if my bootloader is locked right now but I flashed rom 7.2.9 and I was not happy with that rom so I decided to flash with twrp rom 7.4.20 and I could do it without problems just like slymozis said.
    I am not really happy with android N roms but also 6.12.22 wasn´t that good for me due to the battery duration. Maybe the problem is my battery because the phone is almost 2 years old.

    I am not sure about what to do right now. Do you recommend any android N rom??

    I was thinking to try with stable rom from xiaomi.com, but I have doubts. Can I flash a stable rom if I have twrp ?

    Could you explain me how to go to xiaomi.eu rom to a stable rom?
    And last question if I flash a stable rom and I charge my back up from my mi account will I have my apps like play store?

    Probably I will have to buy a new phone.

    Thank you!!

    I cannot suggest any N ROMS at this point...they are MIUI 9 and not Android N per se...
    You have to use MiFlash tool to flash an official stable ROM...you will lose TWRP recovery it will be overwritten by Mi Recovery...
    You will get some of your apps back(depending on what apps they are) from MiCloud backups...but you will not have Google Play Store....

    P.S. I also have a two year old Mi4c and I have noticed lately the battery seems to be not as fresh as it was in the past....you might want to purchase another battery and go back to 6.12.22 see how that works out...(yes you can change the battery)....
