Hi Guys,

Is there any update on the Global ROM of Xiaomi Pad 5 yet?
It is known that the global version of the tablet is being delivered at retail shops.
Bootloader Unlock has been done well so far, just waiting for the Global ROM.

Here are the reasons I must wait for the Global ROM:
1. Sogou Keyboard does not support well my local texts, especially with the physical keyboards (which I have already purchased thru shopee ~100USD ).
2. Sogou Keyboard automatically reverts back "default" keyboard after reboot even Gboard had been set to Default keyboard.
3. Bloatware, Fonts are horrible
4. No NEARBY SHARE found on the current China ROM 12.5.9.

Thank you!


--------------- Update Oct 13 2021 --------------------

You can flash the Global ROM now, it is available finally!

Do make sure:
1. You have completely unlocked your Xiaomi Pad 5 (bind Mi Account and wait 168hrs), enter Pad 5 to fastboot mode, connect Pad 5 to PC, run Unlock Tool on PC to check Pad 5 is successfully unlocked, it should state "Unlocked" with your device ID.
2. Choose "Clear All" option in XiaoMi Flash Tool to make sure that you will have a brand new ROM on the Device. Remember enter the right Directory Path to ROM folder.
3. There is an error at the end (something like your miss abc file...), that says your have successfully installed the Global ROM to your China Pad 5.

How did you manage to unlock on the global computer? I can't do anything at all. the tablet is linked to the account. but when unlocking, writes: bind in developer mode. But in the tablet itself I can not bind

You should try with another PC/Laptop.
Make sure you have installed Xiaomi/Android Drivers, Enable Debugging Mode.
Check your USB port, Open the Xiaomi Unlock to check if your PC recognizes the Xiaomi Device when it is in fastboot mode.

I don't know what is taking them so much time to solve the unlock issue and release a global rom ! Plus release the kernel source !

I ended up ordering a China version of the Xiaomi 5 (in Canada) and I am hoping that I can load the Global ROM on it once its available. Please tell me you can.
This is my first ever Xiaomi device. :)

The global rom is finally available but i can't unlock the bootloader for now !
I bind xiaomi account successfully, and now wait about 5 days to unlock. Check it every day, I think your Pad will be get fixed soon.

I hear you friend, I guess I am just impatient. Waiting for my tablet to arrive, and want to get it to be Global-ified as soon as it arrives. :) As a newbie, I also hope the steps to load the Global ROM are idiot-proof. ;)
