Xiaomi Mi 11
sorry but I am a newbie and I apologize for my ignorance.
I read this forum and I tried to install the latest firmware (fw_dipper_miui_MI8Global_V11.0.4.0.QEAMIXM_5e74c6110e_10.0.zip) trough TWRP (I selected "Install" and simply tapped on the zip file and then swiped).
I then followed Lineage OS ufficial installation instructions: after "format data" and advanced wipe (cache and system) I installed Lineage 17.1 (adb sideloaded); then I wiped again Dalvik and Cache and rebooted.
Now I have the Lineage OS logo animation for 2-3 minutes and then the phone reboots to TWRP.

Anyone so kind to help? Did I installed the firmware the wrong way?

Edit: Ok, I solved installing the second last nightly of LOS 17.1!

There's an issue with latest LineageOS build, you may have read it on LOS thread.

Also, you don't need newer firmware. Firmware comes with Xiaomi.EU Rom.
But only when you have MIUI running on your device, which al lot of people don't! These Update packages provided by yshalsager are just great! :cowboy:

By the way - for the global firmware updates extracted from MIUI ROM there's only the stable firmware version left. There won't be beta updates any more on the global tree. Only the chinese tree will receive further non-stable updates.

    All Xiaomi users suffer from a single problem, Firmware update. As there are many devices with no one to provide the newest firmware update every single release. And also developers who provide updates to devices may forget or be busy sometimes, so releases are provided later. Here is my simple solution:

    Xiaomi Firmware Updater (Mi 8)
    * 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 script that automatically generates Xiaomi firmware flashable zip files every MIUI new update!
    My scripts download MIUI official ROMs, both Developer and Stable, Global 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.

    Name's will be in the following manner:
    • fw_dipper_miui_MI8_*.zip is Xiaomi Mi 8 (dipper) China firmware
    • fw_dipper_miui_MI8Global_*.zip is Xiaomi Mi 8(dipper) 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 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 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.

    why are these firmwares provided?
    When i update the official rom (via OTA or TWRP) or with XIAOMI.EU roms, the firmware isn't updated?
    I'm new to Xiaomi devices, when i was on OnePlus i've never updated firmwares, only roms.
    you're right. but what if you're custom rom user? will you flash miui every time to update the firmware? ;)
