XiaoMiTool.V2

Hi All !
I saw some posts regarding how to flash or switch to an official stock rom without being unlocked but afaik the whole procedure wasn't fully explained yet ;)
Therefore I'll upload some self explanatory pictures but to be honest it is all fairly easy. So do follow the procedure down below.

Follow this video ( russian )

NOTE : DO USE THIS TOOL AT YOUR OWN RISK and DO MAKE A BACKUP OF ALL YOUR DATA ( because it'll be wiped ! )

1. download the Tool and go to the website thnx @franztesca - info - give this guy some credits ;)
2. run the program and finish the installation

3. agree the disclaimer

4. choose between a normally running device or a bricked one (ouch :eek:)

5. if you see this image you'll have to enable USB debugging

6. your device is being found

7. collecting device information

8. choose the 3rd option

9. check the official xiaomi rom ( don't choose the other options because you'll need to be unlocked )

10. it will collect info again

11. choose your desired version and continue to agree on both next stages

12. enter into your MI-account (if needed again)

13. firmware is being downloaded

14. again press the 3rd option in recovery mode

15. it will push the downloaded file over adb

16. installing the rom file...

17. FINISHED !

There are risks to brick device?
You can use this tool as any other tool. And as any other tool there're certain risks using it. But following the automatic procedures correctly - and they're easy ;) - it'll guide you to the roms that can be flashed on your locked/unlocked device.
Read more HERE.
Always do take a full backup of all your data. Remember/write down the version you're on before flashing, just in case.

My bootloader unlock period was extended by 3 days but I don't think that had anything to do with using the tool because owners on the Xiaomi site reported similar experiences.

Hi guys..
Just want to tell you about my experience with this fine tool..
BUT, beware.....
make sure that before you start tampering with your ( Chinese bought / Chinese ROM "filled" phone ) bind it with your MI account / unlock account.
at least thats how i got my soft-bricked phone back to live.
i bought a MI9 in China with the MIUI 10.2 Stable 10.2.11.0(PFACNXM)
i can flash any of the official ROMS for the device using XiaoMiTool.V2.... BUT, i can only lock the bootloader again if i use either Stable China rom or Developer China rom.
so, guys, be careful before you tamper with your Chinese bought phone ( if you want to keep bootloader locked )

The option to flash a custom ROM doesn't work properly with the MI 9 if you have the stock recovery because it uses the fastboot command to reboot to recovery after flashing TWRP. That command boots the MI 9 into the stock recovery and the tool can't do anything after that.

It does work better for switching official MIUI versions while the bootloader is still locked.

Hi
Can i use the tool to change from EEA to china stable with a lock bootloader?

No. You would need an unlocked bootloader to switch between any of the global ROMs and the China ROM or vice versa.

So i this tool cannot change from eea to china.
But pls confirm if this can change from eea to global stable? Or eea to global dev?

Yes you can. Just changed my Mi9 from EEA to Global Stable, and then updated to Global Beta using system update. All with locked bootloader and its working great :)

That's what I thought. It doesn't make sense to have two global versions (EU and Global) that the user can't change between them while their box are identical so the user wouldn't really know which version he has until he he finds the MIUI info inside the phone. My Mi9 is the EU version but the box says Global.
