"Format Data" (= "Format Data" button in "Wipe" menu then you have to type 'yes' to confirm) is mandatory when coming from an Official ROM. I don't know why you wipped Dalvik & Cache. ^^
Also, first boot after a Xiaomi.eu ROM installation (first installation or update) is ALWAYS longer than a normal boot. It can take up-to 15 minutes.
You can flash Stable MIUI 12.5 by Xiaomi.eu (it's based on latest Global ROM).I own Poxo X3 Pro Global Edition.
I'm waiting for the 168 hours time frame after that I can unlock the bootloader.
Can I flash stable MIUI 12.5 or it is not intended for Global edition?
Sorry if it is already answered but I could not find a related post, also sorry if this question is kinda stupid.
You should not lock the bootloader if you are using a Custom ROM.hello
i've mi10t on global version which is boring, i came from poco f1 and very upset bout the changes
anyways due to some lack of knowledge , i keep add my mi account and reset the 169 hrs
my original plan was downloading official Indonesian rom, unlock the device through mi unlock tool , then flash the rom by MiFlash tool via FASTBOOT , then lock it back after checking everything is fine.
can i do the same with this EU rom or not?
if so, what i'd gain from using this rom instead of official ? if you published newer stable version here, would i get the update OTA or i've to download the rom from here everytime and manually updating?
i'm noob with these things, hope my questions aren't upsetting anyone
You should not lock the bootloader if you are using a Custom ROM.
There are OTA updates , but it is mostly an assistant (it download the ROM, reboot to TWRP and try to auto install the file), you should be ready to manually.install the ROM if needed.
My knowledge is limited, but with the search function, I found this : https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/mi-11-pro-stuck-on-fastboot.62027/post-617002regarding locking the bootloader, do you mean for this rom only? or the same with the official Indonesian rom or any other official rom regardless of region ?
if i kept it unlocked, some governmental apps here forbidding usage through such roms , if this will be the same here , then sadly i cant use the rom
Set a pattern on your phone and try to decrypt with it. I use a pin with numbers and works fine.. And don't restore a backup from poco f1, I don't think that's a good idea. Do a backup of your apps with swift backup or migrate and restore it in your poco f3. And no, u don't need to use that dm-something.Hi guys,
I just installed the latest stable MIUI 12 Eu on my new Poco F3 .
I would need a tip from tough guys:
Through TWRP I tried to restore on Poco F3 a backup of the Data file, year 2020, made by my previous Poco F1.
When I restarted my Poco F3, on which I have Root rights, the Vendor systematically encrypted the Data partition without being able to access it.
I then tried to set the keypad lock pin and after rebooting in TWRP I hoped to unlock the Data System password with the current Pin but nothing.
I have already tried the following passwords:
but the Data partition is still encrypted so I can't even format it.
I already know that flashing the original ROM deletes everything and then I can reflash the Miu.Eu again but I would like to understand how to flash my old Data file without encrypting it.
Do you no longer use the old Disable_Dm-Verity_ForceEncrypt that I don't see mentioned in this guide?
Yes, you can use the Updater to download ROM updates and install them*.
Open the Updater app (you can also go in phone's settings > My Device > Tap "MIUI version" tile, to open it) and tap on "Search for an update" button two times.
If the Updater app doesn't find updates, download the latest ROM manually (via your preferred mobile browser) then go in Updater app > 3-dots menu (top-right) > "Choose an update package" and select the downloaded ROM to start the ROM installation*.
*Install requires a custom recovery and you may need to manually select the downloaded ROM in TWRP if it doesn't auto-start the ROM installation.
It depends of your device and TWRP version:The update found an new update, but whenever I try to update it, it just boot to TWRP home menu and after that nothing... Am I doing something wrong?
So I can just install it like that? I don't need to wipe everything first in order to update it?It depends of your device and TWRP version:
- I believe (but I don't know if it still true) all @Nebrassy's TWRP versions don't support automatic-update feature.
- All very recent devices (with one TWRP's version yet) also don't support automatic-update feature, it requires a new TWRP or another custom recovery release...
In this case you have to manually install the new ROM in TWRP:
- In TWRP, go in "Install" menu then find the downloaded ROM => Check in " /sdcard " or " /data/media/0 " directory. Reboot your device after ROM installation.
MIUI ROMs for Redmi K20 Pro don't seem to support F2FS partition for /data (and /cache), it's really weird from Xiaomi because Redmi K20 is supporting F2FS partition for /data (but not for /cache by default...).I did clean flash miui 12.5.4 on Redmi k20 pro and when I change data to f2fs ROM not working with me and get miui screen only

Can you share "/vendor/etc/fstab.qcom" file (you can copy it using the TWRP's file manager in "Advanced" menu - do not forget to mount /vendor partition first) of your current ROM (126.96.36.199)? Thanks.But in previous version MIUI 12 I used f2fs ON DATA AND CASH normal without issues
