Our choice of recovery over fastboot has nothing to do with stability. If there is no custom recovery that can flash and decrypt certain Android version and device, then we can't use a recovery ROM...Not a noob question at all. The most "common" one is actually something called OTA, just like what updates look like when you're using global or Chinese or any other "official" MIUI, but this is not an option for Xiaomi.eu, so you don't need to worry about this. For Xiaomi.eu, when things become more stable, it tends to use recovery since it is easier. But when things just get started, like MIUI 13, the most "original" and the most "stable" is fastboot.
