If I want to lock the bootloader (EU version) and return the phone to its stock state, then I have to select 'clean all and lock' or is there a specific reason on why selecting 'clean all'?

I did this when I first got the phone and flashed stock EU rom, Will do it again if no one else responds with any other methods, and I really need to use phone and hassle each time to set everything up after reflashing

Thanks

Hi, I'm trying to flash stock MIUI so i can do a clean flash of another custom ROM. But I'm stuck with an error that's MiFlash Tool is giving me.. The error says: Length cannot be less than zero. Parameter name: length. Does anyone know a fix for this? When i try to double click the flash_all bat my cmd just closes instantly when it opens. Pretty new to this so I'm worried i might brick something. Thanks

Did you use the last Miflash?
Did you rename the rom folder?
did you use usb 2 port?
is the phone in fastboot mode?

Yes, latest MiFlash and called the folder 1204. I've tried both usb 2 and 3 with no luck. My phone is in fastboot mode but I must say i tried flashing the stock rom with XiaomiTool v2 since it did recognize my phone but it gave an error while flashing the super.img. So I'm pretty scared if ill reboot it will be stuck.

This is surely the first attempt with XiaomiTool v2 that blocks, try to restart and then reflash with Miflash.
Anyway you will not be able to reset it without restarting

Make sure the ROM file has been extracted completely with no corrupted files.
Extract the ROM file in the root directory such as drive C:\ or D:\.
Make sure no single space in the folder name path.
Ensure the Mi Flash tool is run as Administrator (Right-click > Run as administrator).

MiFlash is in this path along with the clean stock rom 12.5.4 global: C:\Program Files\Xiaomi\MiFlash
Should i plug out my phone, restart it, enter fastboot and try again?

1/move the miflash folder and the rom directly to C:/
retry flashing
It doesn't work unplug the phone and reboot in Fastboot mode and try again

Flashing wont work because everytime i press refresh my phone doesn't show up and it gives me the error length can not be less than zero. Tried putting it directly in C:/ too. Thanks for taking your time btw I'm really grateful. I'm also a bit hesitant of restarting my phone because of fear for bootloops. Is that the only option you know?

My end goal is to flash the new hentai OS with android 12 and i was wondering (since i know how to do adb sideload) if i could sideload it now when it's in fastboot. Or should i try to firstly fix going back to stock MIUI?

Plugged it out, restarted it back in fastboot and plugged it back in. Still the same error message.View attachment 5431607
Did you extract the rom folder from the TGZ file?

    Or easier one click method (which i prefer) if miflash gives some errors in flashing or installing.
    Just connect phone in fastboot to pc, open fastboot rom and click on bat files to flash.
