hi,You cannot relock the bootloader if you switch.
If you go from Global to China, China to Global or Global to EU, you can't relock after any scenio.
The only time you can relock is if you reflashed the ORIGINAL global rom after getting bored of an EU or China variation.
If you installed the Xiaomi.eu rom you'd have Google Pay, Banking Apps, 12.5.7 and more so it would make sense to do this rather than stick with Vodafone Global and just not relock as it makes no difference to your usage.
P.s. Fastboot install of 12.5.4 of the Xiaom.eu rom is easiest for beginners.
You can use TWRP to update to 12.5.7 afterwards and not lose any data.
after a whole day of "fight" i have managed to install global 12.5.3 on my mi 11 ultra, it was a nightmare, as my computer for some reason did not well at the final stage of flash (super) and finally after my wife's work comeback
and her laptop little help (did not spare mi the fight either) with one of many attempts and constant internet browse, the phone lit up itself showing 12.5 boot screen.
apologies for such long intro..
my question is, from this stage - is it easier to flash latest like 12.5.7 version and enjoy of google pay working stage.
