Try with Thailand and India. My.region (setting in phone is set to.thailand...you can change this as.well.and try again)
So, i should change the phone region to Thailand and connect to India VPN? Or change the phone region to Thailand/India and connect to Poland VPN?
P.S. When i use to update the phone before, i haven't changed the phone region - i just connected the VPN and updated.

Try these combinations:
1. Region: Thailand, VPN: Thailand
2. Region: Thailand, VPN: Poland
3. Region: India, VPN: India
4. VPN: Italy
5. VPN: Spain

You can try with Vietnam as well.

After changing the region i suggest restarting the phone.

No luck((( which is kind of strange because I managed to update via VPN 3 times with no issues!
The phone is global. It has the Google Messages and Google Dialer.
By the way, how can I check for what region or what country the phone was made?
Thanks and sorry for disturbing with so many messages)

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately it also says this:

    If you roll your version back from Android 12 to Android 11, all user data will be erased. Make sure your data has been backed up before the rollback.

    So i guess I'll wait for the international beta version
    Last resort? No clue if it works, or if it resets everything too, but you could try this.

    "5. If you have a poor experience when using the ColorOS 12 system, you can follow the WeChat official account of the ColorOS Assistant, enter the menu bar-Official Information-OS12-Downgrade Tool, and download the downgrade package."

    do you have the CN version or the EU?
    South East Asian one.
    Just updated, looks and feels better compared to ColorOS 11.

    To request taking part in the beta program you go to Software updates/Settings/Trial. Only if there it shows something you can press on it and confirm that you want to take part in the beta.

    best brightest, and smoothest display I've seen ... Software, MIUI remains one of the most natural feeling, after last update there wa no issue with mi 11.
    I had issues with M11 ultra, call quality was bad. Camera quality was nowhere near as good as advertised. Especially when exporting to another device. Software a little hit and miss.
    Screen was the best but everything else was a little underwhelming.

    Do not understand the procedure of OPPO 🤨🙄
    The procedure is veryyyy simple - there are many global versions :)

    To give you more details and order of receiving updates:
    1. chinese version (gets updates quickly)
    2. global version with Oppo dialer/Oppo Messaging app/App Market + GAPPS
    3. global version with Google dialer and messaging app
    4. global but branded versions

    Ofc above list does not contain all "global" versions. There are differences between them like some additional apps depending on the region.

    Thats why everyone posting here screenshots gets update with different size in MB.

    Yours is 168 MB, mine was almost 300 MB 😂
