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 9T Pro / Redmi K20 Pro / Redmi K20 Pro Premium Edition)
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 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.

Note:
Name's will be in the following manner:
  • fw_raphael_miui_RAPHAEL_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro (raphael) China firmware.
  • fw_raphaelin_miui_RAPHAELININGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi K20 (raphaelin) India firmware.
  • fw_raphael_miui_RAPHAELGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro (raphael) Global firmware.
  • fw_raphael_miui_RAPHAELEEAGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro (raphael) EEA Global firmware.
  • fw_raphael_miui_RAPHAELS_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro Premium Edition (raphaels) China 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 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.

Noob question...
I have been on Indian miui k20 pro, have flashed a custom ROM RR.
I find they have asked for flashin China ROM first and then RR...I have updated directly on Indian global stable without any issues. Everything works as interned

Will I face any problem if I flash China firmware 10.3.16.0 now while keeping vendor from Indian global stable?

Mostly no, but it's preferred to stick with the ROM's advised version of firmware and vendor to avoid unnecessary problems.

I'd prefer waiting for global or Europe version. Hopefully it'll be available soon so I can add it.

Sure. I'm keeping an eye on the rom, once it's released I'll add it.

Redmi K20 Pro
just noob questions
what's the difference between fastboot roms and firmware?
which can be used without root \ with root?
will you include fastboot roms?

Fastboot ROMs are firmware ROMs these are tgz files and are flashed with the Miflash tool.

Recovery ROMs are zip files and can be flashed with a custom recovery like twrp.

I kind of screwed up by wiping my Mi 9T Pro through TWRP a bit too good, so I got stuck in fastboot. But because Xiaomi hasn't released the 9T Pro stock rom yet, I was forced to flash an older faatboot rom for the K20 Pro. I then was able to flash back TWRP and install havoc, but now I am on older firmware. Do you recommend I update to .16 firmware or wait until Xiaomi releases the fastboot rom for the 9T Pro and clean install the device? Thanks in advance!

    Sorry if this has been posted, I've searched for hours :)

    Is there a way to find what my current firmware version is if I have already flashed a custom rom?
    If I cannot find that, knowing I have either EU or Global vendor, and I'm in Canada, which should I use going forward or does it matter?
    If it helps, this is the phone I bought.

    Thanks for any help :)

    It matters when you flash a rom that chnages your vendor miui eu for example, as it changes the firmware to china. So if you want to flash any other aosp based rom after that you'll have to flash the vendor for your device. Now from the link you've provided, I can say it's a global version, so use the global 11.0.3 vendor. You can always flash other vendor if problems arise e.g popup camera and audio.
