Is it possible to flash the European ROM on a device that came as a global Rom without unlocking the bootloader? The reason I want to do this is because my Redmi note 8 Pro doesn't have the google discovery for the left swipe, it has the app vault which I absolutely hate. I heard the European version does have Google discovery for left swipe. From my investigating it seems I may be able to do this using mi flash. It's important I have the same lte bands and turn on Volte as well as the use of NFC. I'm in the US. If not, then can you recommend the most vanilla android rom for this phone that will keep the lte bands, keep NFC and banking apps working and least bit of problems? I guess I would have to unlock the bootloader for this. This phone is nearly 2 years old so I can take the chance of bricking it. I haven't flashed a custom Rom since Ice cream sandwich haha.

Join Telegram. You'll get a lot of help. Even if the phone bricks it can easily be unbricked. Although it won't brick as long as you follow the instructions. The bootloader can be unlocked without 7 days wait or data loss. If the only thing you need is Google discover then i don't think you need to unlock your bootloader. But whatever it is join Telegram for more help .

    All Xiaomi custom ROMs users complain from a single problem, which is the firmware updates. As there are many devices with no one to provide the newest firmware update every single release, and developers who provide updates to devices may forget or be busy sometimes, so releases are provided later. Here comes my solution:

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

    Important:
    These firmware packages contain files from MIUI which will conflict with anti-brick mode! Flash on your own risk.

    Note:
    File name's will be in the following manner:
    • fw_begonia_miui_BEGONIA_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro (begonia) China firmware.
    • fw_begonia_miui_BEGONIAGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro (begonia) Global firmware.
    • fw_begonia_miui_BEGONIAEEAGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro (begonia) EEA Global firmware.
    • fw_begoniain_miui_BEGONIAININGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro (begoniain) India 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 that 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 the 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.
