Lol yess...you won't find a 8t rom for Indonesia or India as redmi note 8t was only released in Europe,Russia and Globally which I guess is USA,UK etc....redmi note 8t is not released in India and Indonesia...so there's no rom for 8t India or 8t Indonesia

ohhh, really?? that is so sad :eek:, so no 8T ROM for India or Indonesia, then there is nothing I can't do about it :crying::crying::crying:

Thanks so much for the help provided, cheers!!

I did this and worked awesome....
1... Be sure you're unlocked
2._usb debug
3._ be sure you're in global....
3.5._ this is if you're not in global ...
Download global .. be sure is fastboot download...flash it with mi flash after you decompress it
4._ now you're in global ...flash recovery twrp
5._ now your in recovery reboot in to your system and download Indonesia version
6._ flash Indonesia version top of global ...do not format it...be sure your making a dirty flash then just wait to reboot ...and wallaaaa you'll have Indonesia version with global language ....and store ...and stock messenger dialer contacts and all good...

Yes, you can, it's not allowed only with devices that were cross-flashed from Chinese-to-all-the-others and from all-the-others-to-Chinese.

Take in account that if you will relock it at same time that you are flashing the ROM through MiFlash tool or fastboot then you can relock it no matter what "custom" anything you have onto your device cause in the flashing process all the Android parts will be replaced.

But if you already flashed the ROM and you want to relock it now through fastboot commands then better get rid of wherever "custom" that is onto your device by i.e. TWRP, Magisk, etc. or you could brick it.

hello, i have another question.
Is there any dialer apps that have seamless call recording feature or roms that have in-built call recording in their dialer?
 
Why don't just extract the app manually and install it into the global rom? Has anyone tried?

I managed to copy it all (Dialer, Mms, IncallUI) to priv-app (which is necessary for them to work)...
Messaging is OK, however the Dialer will be messed up.
It'll be unable to bring up the IncallUI, so there'll be no sound - no call UI - nothing except Contacts, dialpad, and call log.

Guys, you don't need to unlock the bootloader to change regions. Use xiaomitool v2 and pick another region from there. I changed my Poco X3 NFC from TR to MI and it's fine.

note: Chinese variant is a different story. You need to unlock and stay that way for it to work.

    Redmi Note 8 Global wow what a phone and what a pathetic dialer (google) and sms(google) app. I am saying this because I had Redmi note 7 with stock dilaer and sms app. What are you missing with google dialer and sms app
    1. no theming
    2. no sms seperate notification sound
    3. No call recording
    4. no blocking rules for incoming sms etc


    You can switch to official Indonesia or Indian ROM to have MIUI Stock apps.

    1. Download only fastboot version (not recovery )
    ROM Redmi Note 8: MIUI 11 + MIUI 10 Global Stable India, Indonesia & China Stable

    2. Unlock Bootloader (1 week wait) and flashing

    Note1
    If you want to change the ROM from one region to another (China/Indonesia/Global/Russia) installed on your phone then, 1st, Unlock Bootloader and then use Method 2: Fastboot Update to flash your phone. (Detailed Guide "Detailed Guide to Unlock Bootloader and Flash MIUI Stable/Beta ROM")

    Note 2
    DO NOT RE-Lock the Bootloader if you change from China ROM to Global ROM in China phone. Re-Locking will BRICK your phone. Select only "Clean All" option before flashing.

    On Locking Bootloader, you MUST visit: On which ROM and Device you CAN and CAN'T Lock Bootloader!


    Just follow instructions its quite easy. I have flashed two redmi note 8 global to redmi note 8 indian for one I kept the bootloader open and for other i relocked the bootloader.

    Dont hesitate to ask questions if confused ;)

    My Redmi Note 8 Pro is the Global Version, can I block the bootloader without brick risk after flashing the Indonesian ROM?

    According to this, yes, you can. But do at your own risk.

    ---------

    Is Brazilian Portuguese available on Indian ROM?

    I'm talking about local seller warranty

    I understood what you meant.

    As I sayed, unlocking bootloader envolves a online procedure, and so maybe Xiaomi will know you have unlocked the bootloader. If they have track of serial/IMEI with unlocked bootloader, you local seller can access this list and discover you have unlocked.

    But, I'm SUPPOSING they have... Personally, I won't unlock phone on warranty period. Maybe someone else can tell you if I'm right.

    These links you provided have a recovery ROM, wich we can flash through stock recovery. Have you tried to flash these ROMs from phone?

    I mean the method of tapping MIUI logo on "About phone" settings 11 times, and then open the new menu at right top corner.
