I bought my phone in Europe, but I'm not sure if it's a global or eu version, how can I verify this?

Do both global and Europe firmware variants work with my phone? And finally can I use China variant as well? I've read above that India variant is different, but what about China?

yeah, I'm not on MIUI, I'm on a custom ROM. I've flashed global firmware successfully, but was wondering if it's possible to flash different version (EU? China?) - if it's newer version, does the firmware contain some language localization or something? are those versions created for different devices? I can't find complete reliable information about differences between those firmware versions...

I don't know. But I'm pretty sure that if you tried and it screwed things up, you'd be able to reload default MIUI with the Xiaomi software and start over.

Now, whether you're willing to do that is up to you.
I am on Pixel Experience and not MIUI. Can I revert to Indian fw by dirty flashing, if the Global fw doesn't work?

Thank you! I'll go through that however I am scared if something goes wrong and my mobile goes dead. Appreciate your help.
I flashed to indonasian 12.5.6 rom after 3 failed attempts. After got 12.5.8 ota update. But when I ota updated it to miui 13.0.1 some features like face unlock, refresh rate, memc, aod etc are missing because device names alioth & alioth-in(India). Now atlast I successfully flashed back to indonasian 12.5.6 using the same flash tool after spending a whole day and multiple failed attempts (stuck in fastboot). I am also not expert in these kind of stuff.

Does miui recovery and fastboot rom include firmware in them? Can I flash only firmware using mi flash tool. How to know compatibility? I am new to these stuff. Please clarify. Thank you.

    when a custom rom developer recommends a firmware, when exactly you have to sideload these firmware files?
    Is it before you adb sideload the custom rom? or after? can it be sideloaded after the custom rom is installed and running?
    Depends. There is recommended firmware, and there is minimal required firmware. Sometimes those are the same. The minimal required firmware needs to be flashed before the ROM, and the recommended firmware can be flashed both before and after flashing ROM. To be on the safe side it's better to flash firmware first, then flash the ROM.

    Xiaomi custom users face a problem with firmware updates. As there are many devices with no one to provide the newest firmware update every single release, and developers who provide updates to devices may forget or be busy sometimes, so releases are provided later. Here comes Xiaomi Firmware Updater project:


    Xiaomi Firmware Updater (POCO F3 / Xiaomi Mi 11X / Redmi K40)



    jSIVrRy.png
    Code:
    #include
    /*
    * Your warranty is now void.
    *
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
    */


    What is Xiaomi Firmware Updater?
    A set of various scripts that automatically generates Xiaomi firmware flashable zip files for every MIUI new update! My scripts download MIUI official ROMs, both Developer and Stable, Global, EEA, India, and China, extract firmware either from the firmware-update folder or from update payload, generate firmware flashable zip with auto-written "updater-script", and uploads them automatically to multiple servers. These scripts are completely automated, running on a Linux server every X hours.

    Notes:
    Firmware filenames for this device are in the following manner:
    • fw_alioth_miui_ALIOTH_*.zip is Redmi K40 (alioth) China firmware.
    • fw_alioth_miui_ALIOTHGlobal_*.zip is POCO F3 (alioth) Global firmware.
    • fw_alioth_miui_ALIOTHEEAGlobal_*.zip is POCO F3 (alioth) EEA Global firmware.
    • fw_alioth_miui_ALIOTHINGlobal_*.zip is Mi 11X (alioth) India Global firmware.

    Downloads
    You can get updates always from various mirrors available on the website:

    Frequently Asked Questions:
    What is firmware? Is it a full ROM or OTA package?
    Firmware is not a ROM nor OTA Package, it's a set of low-level drivers which helps the operating system do whatever it wants to do. It includes various things like Modem, Bluetooth, Bootloader, DSP and etc.

    Why should I update the Firmware?
    Firmware is provided from Xiaomi directly, and there are no sources for it to let developers build and edit it on their own like custom ROMs, so if you want to keep your device up to date always update your firmware!

    Do I need to update the Firmware If I'm an MIUI official or a custom ROM user?
    No, MIUI ROMs contain the firmware-update package which I extract and provide here.

    What are the supported devices?
    All Snapdragon and MTK devices including China-only devices.
    Check the full devices list here

    How to update the firmware?
    1- Download the package you want to flash. IT MUST BE NAMED WITH THE SAME CODENAME OF YOUR DEVICE.
    2- Flash it using TWRP or any custom recovery. There's no need to wipe/format anything before or after the installation.

    How to check the updated firmware?
    Usually, the modem gets updated with newer firmware, you can check it in Settings > About > Baseband.

    A donation was never necessary, but It's making life easier for me and guarantees paying server costs. My works are free and open-source, that cost money, time, and many efforts.
