MIUI 9 | Android 8.1
It is FORBIDDEN to flash a Chinese device to a global firmware WITH LOCKED bootloader!
A Chinese device with a locked bootloader and a global firmware can turn into a brick!
Do not lock the bootloader when flashing the global firmware on a Chinese device!

If you need help
GLOBAL

Built-in updater should probably work, try it out, it will tell you if it doesn't.

Tried many different methods but they are all showing that the global rom is not an official rom, unless i am doing something wrong....

On the same boat. I hope somebody can help us. Latest china beta with unlock bootloader. I am guessing we can flash through TWRP but I am not sure and I don't want to brick my device.
