i take it the firmware has to match the rom, i,e, rom is android 10 so firmware is version 10, and must not use version 11? is there any benefit to using firmware from global over europe or vice versa if im UK based? (should i use europe?)

Are there any changelogs for any of the firmware? I ask as I see in reviews like TechTablets


He suggests in March 2020 the firmware might be the cause of poor performance such as:
No widevine L1
Camera crash bugs
Low video/audio bitrate
Poor night shot mode
No EIS with 4K or Front camera
Slow charging (for 2020)

I'd like to know if any of this is fixed before I buy one

Hello, can I use this for Pixel Experience Rom (Beta 11) ?
Do they need to release the kernel source along with the firmware for Android version 11 firmware to be useable?

This depends on your device maintainer. You should ask in this your thread whether this firmware version is supported or not after checking the ROM's thread first post.

    Have been running LineageOS and neglecting FW updates the last update wants me to have current Android 12 FW and i found your nice thread.

    1) What options do i have to find which of the two versions i bought EU or Global 9s?
    nvm found it, good thing i kept notes before Flashing away from Stock

    2) Flashing the latest FW zip file is enough or would i have to pinpoint the last FW update i got when i had Stock ROM and flash the all starting from there?

    Thanks for your work!
    Latest is enough, just make sure LOS works nice with latest :)

    Glad to help!

    All Xiaomi custom ROMs users complain from a single problem, which is the 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 my solution:

    Xiaomi Firmware Updater (Redmi Note 9s / 9 Pro)
    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.
    */

    A set of various scripts that automatically generates Xiaomi firmware flashable zip files every MIUI new update!
    My scripts download MIUI official ROMs, both Developer and Stable, Global, Europe, India, and China, extracts the firmware-update folder, generates firmware flashable zip with auto-written "updater-script", and uploads them automatically to many servers.
    The scripts are completely automated, running on a Linux server every six hours.

    Note:
    File name's will be in the following manner:
    • fw_curtana_miui_CURTANAGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi Note 9s / 9 Pro (curtana) Global firmware.
    • fw_curtana_miui_CURTANAEEAGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi Note 9s / 9 Pro (curtana) EEA Global firmware.
    • fw_curtana_miui_CURTANAINGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi Note 9s / 9 Pro (curtana) India 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 that 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 updating the Firmware If I'm MIUI official or 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.

    While this update had me looking for solutions, my phone is restarting on its own, after that it says"Find device unexpected close "then I got some apps stop from working.. Bought the phone 3 days ago... Please help
    Reading the OP carefully is already a good solution. If you bought your phone 3 days ago I assume that your bootloader is still locked. So, how could you flash recovery LRTWRP?

    Hello, Thanks for your effort !!!

    So that I can use your provide firmware take out the boot.img and MAGISK root?.......

    I understand it needs adb command, match correctly firmware version to my device, send your boot.img to Redmi device and so on so forth....

    Just want to see if this is the basic theory I can use in this thread.

    Thank you very much.
    Edmond

    Hi, thanks for your kind words. Firmware packages that I extract doesn't have the boot image included. However, The steps you've mentioned are correct.
