I have seen many people facing this issue where they flashed a OxygenOS rom of different phone ( Due to a idiot youtuber said it can be flashed on all devices )

I recently recieved a POCO F1, with same condition where i cannot update MIUI over Oreo firmware.

So, this guide is for those people who cannot boot any new MIUI other than Oreo OTA

* First make sure you are on Oreo MIUI and your device is working fine.
* Download Latest MIUI A10 OTA and extract it.
* From the above latest OTA pick system, vendor and boot images and place them in any folder.
* Flash system, vendor and boot through fastboot mode using following commands:

fastboot flash system path_to_the_files\system.img

fastboot flash vendor path_to_the_files\vendor.img

fastboot flash boot path_to_the_files\boot.img

* Now Flash lastest recovery for Poco F1 (OOFGang TWRP Suggested ).
* Boot into twrp and flash this fiirmware only (also attached below).
* Format Data and reboot.
* You have A10 MIUI installed.


Notes:
* Dont do anything other than mentioned step else can hardbrick device.
* Dont flash any OTA directly on the device either from fastboot or recovery.
* Dont flash new firmware else you can hardbrick device.
* After insatlling MIUI A10 you can install any rom without any probllem just make sure they dont include any firmware.

DISCLAIMER NOTICE
* I'm not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed (like it did for me...).
* 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.
* Your warranty will be void if you tamper with any part of your device / software.

Thank you so much for this awesome guide! I haven't encountered the problem myself but I try to learn new things every day.
Just a little question: why wouldn't it be possible to flash new firmware (e.g. from https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/firmware/beryllium/) when they are released?

did you put the files inside the adb folder and use the commands with the device in Fastboot? the files have to be extracted from the fastboot version

fastboot flash system system.img

fastboot flash vendor vendor.img

fastboot flash boot boot.img

then go up the twrp and flash the firmware

Just flash abl.elf and then while flashing anyrom just delete abl.elf file from the zip file and it would work fine

Or
We can simply
Replace abl.elf file from miui 12 firmware with miui 9 firmware also when we flash any rom just replace abl.elf or don't flash firmware


For this process no need of miui 9 or 10 rom
Just flash abl.elf file via Fastboot mode

you have to download the .tgz file, where you can find the flash files on the fastboot. Before everything with the cel working releases usb debugging, put the twrp image and the firmware edited in the internal memory. Now you go into fastboot flash the system, vendor and boot .img, and flash twrp. enters recovery twrp flash edited firmware, format data and reboot
