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 (Redmi Note 5 / 5 Plus)

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_miui_HM5Plus_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 / 5 Plus (vince) China firmware
  • fw_miui_HM5PlusGlobal_*.zip is Redmi Note 5 / 5 Plus (vince) 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.

If i may suggest:
1. Change log
2. Keep the update on the first post. i.e. it is easier to refer all the latest update in one place.

Aprreciate your work. Keep it up.

Your suggestions are welcome, but:
OP already has a static link to all builds so you just click and check latest.

For changelogs, I can't help because this firmware is directly taken from Official ROMs, and there's no changelogs for it ;)

I am on this construction and I would like to try to install Unofficial Lineage, I read that I have to install even the oldest firmware before and that I can then restore with updated firmware. Where can I find the one currently installed on my phone in order to restore it?
I can not find in the front page link a little help would be welcome thanks.
Can I use this?
