    Hi, i just bought mi5 from ******* and it came with xiaomi.eu 7.2.13.0 stable rom. I have noticed that my recovery doesnt work, when i want to go to recovery mi logo flashes for part of second and then the screen goes black and nothing happens. Is it possible to flash any other rom so i can go to miui 8 developer rom that is coming tommorow. Also i think that my bootloader is locked. Thanks

    I had the same issue. I bought it from ******* which installed the above unofficial ROM. It gave me a headache at first but I managed to install the global Eu stable. First of all you should unlock bootloader by applying to miui website. Then after 3-5 days you will receive a confirmation code and with mi unlock app you will unlock the bootloader. Then you will download the China developer ROM you want at your PC and install it with fastboot method. Lastly, download the ROM you want(miui 8 or 7) and install it with fastboot as well. There are some useful guides you can find which gonna make your life easier. Hope I helped.

    PS. I suggest you install miui 7 for now and wait to see the bugs fixed on miui 8.

    I know thats what I was told too, but I couldn't install the China dev ROM on top of the unofficial rom. It wouldn't let me. The reason? I don't really know. So I tried to unlock it with the unofficial installed. I don't know if it is the safe way so try installing via fastboot the China dev and then unlock. If you are unable, try my way.

    There is already twrp installed. If you try to wipe all it takes forever and it freezes to the miui logo screen. I tried and it seemed like I bricked my phone.

    Twrp. Since the bootloader is unlocked you will be able to access twrp.

    Did you apply to unlock the bootloader via miui account? It takes 3-5 days to get a confirmation code to unlock it. Then you follow this guide:

    Sign in here http://en.miui.com/unlock/ with your miui account, or make one if you don't have one already. Then wait for confirmation as I mentioned above. When you receive the confirmation follow the above guide.

    if you ahve xiaomi.eu rom you already have bootloader unlocked unless you have received with a fake rom. in that case unlock bootloader with the request code as @SpaceConq said to you and then flash twrp and follow my steps that i had told you before

    The rom you have is unofficial and a good sign that your bootloader is locked is that you can't access recovery mode. Try flashing China dev rom via fastboot mode and then request to unlock as I told you earlier.

    Tip: remember that you should download the Rom from here http://en.miui.com/a-234.html in order to use the fastboot method.

    Try it and be patient, it might take some time for the first boot. Don't interrupt the procedure cause you might brick the device.

    Yes but you should wait for the confirmation of bootloader to install miui 8 on top of China dev Rom.
