So, im tired of Google contacts and calendar...and my Poco F3 came with that pre-installed instead of Xiaomi/MIUI ones.

My question is: can i install via Mi Flashtools the ROM of Mi11i or Mi11x to archieve that?

I have try installing the apk for Miui contacts and dialer but they wont work, wont Open after installing. But the Miui calendar works fine.

Course i love the Miui stock launcher better than POCO launcher too.

Can i do what i say above?! Thanks

I suggest you unlock your bootloader and Flash a xiaomi.eu Rom(Lots of videos on YouTube FYI) via TWRP . It has MI Dialer and Contacts. Don't flash Stock ROM of other regions or sub brands.

I suggest flashing China ROM directly instead... Miui.eu is unstable garbage , feels like a bad custom ROM with all of it's FPS drops and random lag spikes.

I tried China developer build while I was on my downgrade spree and I can say performance was immensely better . Everything else tho not so much ...

Better than EU for sure but I prefer global over it. Google services and everything else...

Sounds like user error.

Unlock your bootloader & flash Xiaomi.eu Custom ROM. It's the best version of MIUI and includes Mi Phone (with Call Rec) & Mi Contacts. Don't flash Mi 11X ROM onto the Poco F3.

And don't flash the China ROM. It doesn't contain Google Services and is generally not optimised for Use outside of that region.
The user above me is full of ****.

Lmao man you shouldn't be qualified to talk about performance at all. Based on your post from before your use case scenario is so light that you can't even notice lack of performance from 870 chips.

I've talked to users having same issue I've described literally few days ago , on top of that I've tried myself both EU and VN versions and both felt like custom ROMs in terms of severe performance instability. So much so that I'm not using either of those but waiting for features in those ROMs to come to global users.

Have you flashed China ROM ???
Tried it for yourself before calling someone out ? I really doubt that's the case. It feels and performs leagues above miui VN or EU

I've never used China ROM, but Xiaomi.eu Custom ROM is based on China ROM...how can performance be much different ? Android Vanilla is much more smooth for sure, but.. the China ROM ?
Sorry for saying you're full of sh*t, but you also say Global is better than EU/EEA, but there isn't much difference. The EU ROM just tries to be GDPR comform.

Edit: I've also run Geekbench Benchmark on my Xiaomi.eu ROM and its about what I expect. Other phones with SD 870 have similar results. The clunky feeling comes from MIUI in general...

Nah the geekbank benchmark makes 0 sense when we are talking about random frame drops and stuttering lmao... But anyways it still is worse for you so yeah.....

Those random lags and stutters that you blame miui for are nonexistent on proper miui ROMs - China or global , I moved to get away from the stuttering and **** performance and am happy to report I've seen next to none ever since.

Idk what miui EU Devs are doing but it's essentially custom ROM regardless , they broke something 100% , be it by removing functionality from some crucial miui service or whatever the performance is not there.

EU version is supposed to offer higher performance in all use case scenarios over global by allowing for higher thermal limits when performance mode is activated , yet the experience is much worse with or without performance mode....

China or global only , miui EU is a joke. Based on China but trying to imitate global and ends up being worse than both lmao

I'm talking about Xiaomi.eu Custom ROM, not Stock MIUI for EU region, those are 2 different things.
If you have problems, run 3DMark Firestrike and compare against other SD 870 phones.
 
I know what you're talking about lmao read better before you jump to reply.
I have read it, but it's hard to tell from your messages if were talking about the Custom ROM. Some people mistake Xiaomi.eu for official Xiaomi ROMs for Europe.

Regardless there isn't much difference between Global & EEA. EEA has a toggle for ads directly in the Android Setup while the other doesn't, and some other changes so its GDPR compliant. There are no differences regarding performance.

I agree that China ROMs are the best if you want pure performance on MIUI. People only use xiaomi.eu because it's convenient, but it can never be the same as the official stuffs, after all it's just a frankenstein ROM that was modified directly then released without any actual optimization.

Hello people.
If I want to flash stock firmware with "MiFlash" do I have to unlock the device and the bootloader?
I mean, it is stock firmware.
Also, wondering if this applies if I want to flash the Mi 11x firmware?
Currently running Global firmware for Poco F3, MIUI 12.5.4.

I used to have Samsung before and flash all the time, but since they started with the Knox tripping thing I stopped and now I'm a little rusted.
I changed to Xiami and couldn't be happier.

Thanks for your support

For Official ROMs, unlocking bootloader is not necessary. Why do you want to flash the ROM of a different phone? I don't recommend doing that.

Well, the bottom line will be just to test and see the difference between MIUI and Poco MIUI.
And it will be only with Mi 11x firmware which is the same phone but "different" brand, no intention of flashing the shark firmware for instance.
I've noticed some difference with my wife's Mi11 and I liked the dialer and she can sort regents in horizontal way.

I think you won't be able to flash a different phones' ROM. Aren't you afraid it would brick your device? The ROM is for a different phone!

The difference is the model. Poco F3 and Redmi K40 are the alioth model, while Mi 11X is aliothin. Most custom roms makes the distinction between models at flashing, who isn't the case for stock. There's the slight chance to brick the phone while flashing the China version, plus the baseband aren't the same.

If you like to test pure MIUI instead of Poco MIUI, why not instead extract the desired APKs in Mi 11X ROM and replace them in your Poco F3?

You say that like you're certain that's going to work.

Wanna try it out first?

    no, not a good idea

    rooting and systemizing those apks will possibly work.
