Hello I just received a Xiaomi Mi 11 ultra Chn model with EU firmware installed.
It's on version 12.5.3 and the build in updater just downloaded version 12.5.7. When I try to install it, I get to the point where I have confirm that I want reboot into Recovery mode. But nothing happens, the updater app jus freezes. I can see that the update is downloaded to the root of the internal storage. There is a Recovery mode 5.0 installed. But it is very basic an only offers pc connection and reset funktion
Where do I go from here if I want to upgrade my phone?

Thanks
I haven't been using adb for years, that's one of the reasons I bought a phone with ye EU ROM already installed.
When I type ./adb devices in normal boot mode my phone is listed. But in fast boot the device line is empty.
I tried to install the Google usb driver from the SDK. But nothing works. There is no connection to my phone in fast boot mode

Don't try to enter Fastboot by adb, use button combo and check again.

Sent from my Mi 11 Ultra.

I pressed volume down while powering my phone. I use PowerShell on windows with the commands from the folder with fastboot.exe and the twrp.img files

== How to install Xiaomi drivers on your computer ==

Download the latest version of Mi Unlock tool (zip file):

1) Create a ' miflash ' folder on your Desktop then extract the downloaded zip file to this created folder

2) Boot your phone to Fastboot mode (hold " Volume down " + " Power " buttons simultaneously until you see "FASTBOOT" screen)

3) On your computer, open miflash_unlock.exe (in ' miflash ' folder) => Go in "Settings" menu (gear icon) => Click on the first "Check" (from the top) => Allow to run this tool as an administrator (if asked ~ can be asked twice) => Now connect (or disconnect/reconnect) an USB cable from your phone to your computer => Done! You can now run fastboot commands.

P.S.: If drivers are not installed => Try with another USB cable or USB port. ;)

== How to install Mi Driver on your computer (to fix phone detection) ==

Download this version of Mi Flash/Unlock:
- Do NOT install the latest "5.5.224.55" update of Mi Flash/Unlock

1) Boot your phone to Fastboot mode (hold " Volume down " + " Power " buttons simultaneously until you see "FASTBOOT" screen)

2) In Mi Flash/Unlock, on your computer, go in "Settings" menu (gear icon) => Click on the first "Check" (from the top) => Allow to run the tool as an administrator (if asked) => Now connect (or disconnect/reconnect) an USB cable from your phone to your computer => Done!

;)
Thank you very much
Installing the driver with mi flash tool made it work.

Thanks I just saw your earlier post and managed to get TWRP installed by installing the older driver from MiUnlock, THANKS. However now I can't seem to get into TWRP on the phone by Power+Vol UP... I get Mi logo, a vibrate, blank screen then when I let go, it still defaults back to standard phone login

Did you install the latest Xiaomi.eu ROM? If you don't install the latest Xiaomi.eu ROM, you have to "Inject TWRP" (in TWRP, it's in "Advanced" menu). ;)

Can I also just say, 12.5.7 is da bomb! Definitely smoother and faster than 12.5.4, everything just loads quicker without some of the lag previously. No camera issues that I can tell, and about the only thing where jury's still out, is battery life.. then again with 65W warp charge, who cares. Thanks again EU team, great work and looking fwd to future enhancements.

Your phone is dead, it's a hardware issue so contact your seller...
