  1. Have you copied MT6592_Android_scatter.txt" to signed_bin folder ?

  1. Are you trying to flash developer ROM ? (I personally have flashed developer ROM but it should work with China Stable)
  2. Make sure you have followed Step 6
  3. Use this SP_Flash_Tool_exe_Windows_v5.1516.00

Developer is multilanguage?? or data?
  • Stable ROMs and Developer ROMs are all made by MIUI Official
Developer ROMs are updated every week (except for special occassions like Chinese national holidays), and they will get bug fixes and new features in every update
Stable ROMs are updated once a month/two months/even longer. They don't have a regular update frequency. You could use the stable version if you are not eager to experience new features, and don't have much knowledge about flashing your phone etc.
And It is not Multilanguage ROM just English/Chinese but you can easily install Google apps so It's not much of an issue

So, if I have a tgz, whitch contains signed files, official miui rom, I can install it with SP tools, even if I have a locked bootloader? 7.0.9.0 what I have now it's horrible... My signal drops, rotation works just in some apps, in camera I can't make landscape photos, vibration I think it's on maximum. I want to get rid of this ROM version... but I don't want to brick my phone. What do you recommend? It's safe to flash this way? Can I brick it, or it will gave me error, and thats all, it will boot, in the actual rom that I have?

Better UI some new customization settings and haven't really seen any major bug other than notification delay some time which was in stable version aswell
Tempting! I was planning to wait untill I have TWRP running (which can't take that long), but now you got me thinking .... Could you give some examples of the better ui and new customization? Thanks :)
