Hi I just finished install Global MiUI ROM into my new MiPad 4. The whole process took me full day searching answers on Google.

If any of my tips are wrong, please do share it with me. Many thanks.

Thanks for your text, but in end effect you will have a device without any update cuz xiaomi has stopped the support. So please kindly give us some other custom ROMs with Android 10 chance....

Thanks mate, i bought for christmas a mipad 4 for my girlfriend. It come with boot loader unlock and what seems to be the 10.0 firmware from here (xiaomi.eu).
But just to be sure i decided to start with a clean state and to install a more up to date rom.
Your tutorial saved me a lot of time! In less than an hour the mi pad 4 is now running perfectly with miui 10.3.2.
So cheers and merry Christmas to you and to the xiaomi.eu team. ;)
