hey guys, successfully flashed the global rom over my redmagic 6 pro CN version but decided to go back to the CN rom, but when I try to install it via local update it results in a recovery boot loop and the only option is to do a factory reset, but when I do a factory reset, for some reason it goes back to the Global Rom. Any tips on what I need to do? thanks

Personally what I would do is extract the boot image from the CN rom zip and fastboot flash it after you flash the CN rom via local update. You will have to be bootloader unlocked of course. You can always relock after you've got the CN rom up and running.

I actually tried that but then it get's stuck on the Nubia logo, so something must have gone wrong somewhere, and one odd thing is if I try installing the latest V2.63 CN rom via local update it tells me that the package is not compatible with the phone. At least the Redmagic 5G had the local update option on its recovery. Nothing at all on the Redmagic 6 Pro. Isn't recovery.img included in the payload.bin? doesn't seem to be there when I dumped the payload

Hi there, can you describe the whole steps to flash your RM6 pro from CN to global?
Which rom did you use? EU or non-EU?
Thanks for the reply.

I installed both just to see if I cam go back to CN rom once I'm on either Rom
Basically just downloaded the Global ROM file from the Nubia website, put it on my phones root folder, then did a local update, using the system update local update setting

I believe the recovery is part of the boot image now. I've dumped the payload too and I'll have a quick look and see if it's present. I have all the files for the US, global version. It's 4.1.2 I believe. I'll be happy to help any way I can. I just had a bad experience today... I've had my 6 Pro a week and already the cord has quit working. Not a good sign. I'm starting to regret my purchase.

I checked and sure enough no recovery image. Pretty sure it's baked into the boot image. Perhaps try the 4.1.2 boot image? That may boot it. Seems like you've rebranded it global version by flashing the global rom. That's a possibility anyways

ok I'll try to play around with it, won't flashing the 4.1.2 boot.img cause a brick?

Shouldn't cause a brick. If you've already flashed global before there shouldn't be any problem. But to be sure instead of flashing just fastboot boot the image.

Fastboot boot boot.img

This will allow you the luxury of trying it without actually flashing it. If it hangs up simply reboot by holding power.
