Why are global builds for Vince not updated? Should I flash the China version instead if I'm on a custom ROM?

Well it's ok

If you want better battery backup try some custom kernel but be careful you might have to compromise with your performance only a little, I'm using genom kernel and it's going great you can try it if you want.

In your mind
@yshalsager Hey, new to this tool. One question:
So I can flash the firmware in recovery then I can flash any custom ROM I want, right? I mean, I don't need a full system zip to make custom ROMs work as they should

The new roms are coming these are kernal 4.9 installed so require latest firmware just simply flash latest firmware zip then flash any rom that you want. If you don't update firmware may you will get error 7 when flashing ROM or hardware not working properly like (fingerprint sensor)
Don't restore the backup of bootloader when I did It end up with YOUR SYSTEM HAS BEEN DESTROYED
enjoy flashing :)

Can I flash the Chinese firmware? Will it cause any issues? And does the 9.4.18 firmware have any issues?

How do I go back to the previous firmware in case anything goes wrong?
Are there any issues on the latest firmware? Which firmware are you using?
So far didn't have any issues on the latest firmware, incase something goes bad and you want to revert back just take backup of your phone or taking backup of your boot partition is enough.

    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)
    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_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.
