As Redmi as usual messes up naming convention, we ended up having three names for same device - Redmi Note 9 4G (CN), Redmi 9T (EU) and Redmi 9 Power (IN)
I had spent a day on best way to remove ads in our device and ended up reinstalling ROM altogether
I reached to Dev and he helped with progress on this here https://github.com/geoanto555/android_device_xiaomi_lime/issues/1

Usual device-specific Data Backup/unlocking/rooting warnings apply here, and this is just a guide
Req:
* SD Card or USB OTG
* Download latest Recovery https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=320361
* Download Stable ROM https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/miui-12-0-stable-release.56191/ (You can experiment with Beta ROMs if courageous)
* Download Full fastboot MIUI image to recover phone in case required
* fastboot getvar product -> Should output "lime"

1. Unlock your phone via official unlocking tool (Yeah it still takes 7 full days)

2. Once unlocked, Boot to fastboot mode (Volume Down + Power when the phone is switched off)

3. Flash Recovery and boot TWRP using below commands

cmd>fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
Sending 'recovery' (131072 KB) OKAY [ 3.037s]
Writing 'recovery' OKAY [ 1.198s]
Finished. Total time: 4.586s

cmd>fastboot reboot-recovery
Rebooting into recovery OKAY [ 0.006s]
Finished. Total time: 0.011s

4. After rebooting to TWRP, It'll show FBE Decryption failed. Even Formatting Data wont help

5. Mount USB/SDcard. Install .zip on OTG/SDcard via TWRP

6. Format /data after ROM is flashed

7. Reboot and Profit

I can not boot
Tero direct booting isn't supported by our device. After flashing recovery, reboot to recovery

Is this have the mi dialler and mi messaging?
Yes. Replaces Google Phone and Messaging app comes in Stock builds
Thanks for this Guide, I have installed weekly rom, but it has more lag and camera slowly open and take pictures? is stable like than?
Weekly builds are known for lags here and there. Better to stay with Stable builds. Use GCam they're better in custom MIUI builds

Not at all, I am using stable build for atleast a month now. Battery drain is slightly more than Stock But as our phone had 6Ah battery, its hardly a problem

Yes, you can download stable zip and update via in-built updater or reboot to recovery, flash it

I see. Should I just unlock bootloader and move to xiaomi.eu pr downgrade entirely to Redmi 9? I just want to get the agressive ram issue solved.

    I can relock bootloader after install EU rom only if I have the global variant, right?
    That's not what I mean, global Xiaomi phones are the variants that are sold outside of the China market.

    Based on my own experience, you can relock bootloader with a different region of official ROM installed, on these variants of Redmi 9T: Turkey (QJQTRXM), Taiwan (QJQTWXM), Indonesia (QJQIDXM), Global (QJQMIXM), EEA (QJQEUXM) and India (QJQINXM).

    And the ROM in this thread is the Xiaomi.eu custom ROM, unofficial, you can't lock bootloader with this ROM installed.

    If you want to relock the bootloader, you have to install one of the official ROMs.

    hi team,
    do i still need to unblock the bootloader using the unblocker from xiaomi.eu before installing the twrp?
    You need to unlock bootloader to install TWRP and the custom ROM.

    thank you @cbw

    AFTER I INSTALL EU ROM, CAN I RELOCK BOOTLOADER?
    For the custom ROM, no.

    Locked bootloader will only boot to an unmodified official ROM, if you have a global version of phone global Xiaomi phone (that is not the China variant), you can install a different region of MIUI ROM and relock bootloader.

    If you do that, it is important to not to downgrade Android version, because downgrading Android could cause serious problems.

    And after that I will still receive ota updates, right?
    Both the custom ROM and the official ROM can receive updates, but they are different.

    A ROM can only be updated to a newer version of the same ROM.

    You can't update the custom ROM to the official ROM, or update the official ROM to the custom ROM.

    Even for the official ROM, you can't update it to a different region of official ROM, you can only install updates of the same region of official MIUI ROM.

    If you want to switch to a different ROM, the data has to be wiped (formatted).
