Hello, I would like to know which firmware should I use, when should I use it. I was on miui global 12.5--android 11. now I'm on evolution x 6.2--android 12 and would like to know when and what firmware do I need to use to install a custom ROM
Does that rom have an XDA thread? Discord server or Telegram channel?

I imagine, like with most Android 12 AOSP roms, 13.0.x should be just fine. I'd check any documentation you can find, though!

There needs to be something wrong. I see it should be for ALIOTHEEAGlobal, but then I get CURTANAEEAGlobal.
Would you guys have a look at that?

I'm using LineageOS and in the other thread it says:

Required firmware version must be based on MIUI 13.x.x builds (Based on Android 12).
  • V13.0.5.0.SKHCNXM 12.0 China
  • V13.0.4.0.SKHEUXM 12.0 Europe
  • V13.0.4.0.SKHINXM 12.0 India
  • V13.0.2.0.SKHMIXM 12.0 Global
  • Others flash region specific firmware (eg: Indonesia, Russia, etc..)
Should I install stock ROM and let it update itself?

Global will work fine. You can also create a flashable zip from ID rom if you want.

Thank you for the assistance, yshalsager!

I suppose for my use case, the first option -normal (untouched) firmware- is what I needed?

I tried the tool using normal/admin but both returned the same error:

Any clue what might the problem be? I'm using the recovery rom from https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/miui/alioth/stable/V13.0.2.0.SKHIDXM/

    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.

    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.
