Hello,

So i got a lot of bugs on stock miui Poco F2 pro and read that Xiaomi.eu would be a good replacement.
The last days i have read a lot about flashing roms on xiaomi phones and i still got a few questions about it,
so i hope you guys can help me out.
Currently im running Stock Miui: 12.2.6.0(RJKEUXM).
p.s. i dont need root or anything like that just the stable version of xiaomi.eu and backup data isnt necessary want to start fresh.


1. Which twrp do i need for my Poco f2 pro because there are 3 unofficial?
(Link to twrp: https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=318240)

2. So if i get this correct is this the way to flash:
Unlock bootloader->fastboot flash twrp->flash Xiaomi.eu rom and done?

3. If there is a update for Xiaomi.eu rom stable is that with a ota update like the stock rom or do i need to flash it with twrp?

4. I saw in a few videos that Poco f2 pro would be renamed to Redmi K30 Pro does that matter for my carrier or google account?

5. If i want to go back to stock miui is it true that i just need to flash the fastboot image with miflash and everything is back to normal (recovery, Miui and locked bootloader)?

6. Do i need to backup my old firmware for later?

Thank you.

Hey I'm also thinking on going from global to xiaomi.eu rom on my poco f2.
How is your experience with the eu rom? Is it faster/slower? How are system animations?
Thanks a lot.

It works like a charm, its faster and alot longer battery life no bloat and no ads.
Only thing that some notifications are delayed(1 or 2 minutes) (even when miui batterysaver is off) like whatsapp and email etc.
I only got this problem when my phone screen is off, when on no delayed .
I know that its a problem from xiaomi because i got that same delay on my official EEA Rom so xiaomi still didnt fixed it in 12.5....
