How To Guide Installing MIUI EU ROM and root

Search This thread
Hello, I run Xiomi.EU 13.0.10 (global) ROM on my Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G with Magisk 24.3 , and Google Pay was complaining on unlocked bootloader, but I was able to use NFC pay for a few days, and suddenly it stopped working... I've put older Magisk (v 23) with MagiskHide, but nothing helps...
Could I update AdAway to latest host file, reboot, remove Magisk and then lock bootloader so Google Pay functions properly ?

I would NOT relock the bootloader or you'll likely brick your device. If anything I'd update to the latest magisk and try using more up to date methods of blocking detection... Failing that, remove root and install an open source adblocker such as blokada which doesn't need root as it uses a VPN style adblocker and see if Google plays nice without root. The above may or may not be helpful, I'd recommend to try asking this question in a more relevant thread

You're very welcome. I can't guarantee that it would work for anything other than MIUI EU ROM but I know as a fact that it has automatic call recording if you choose to flash it instead of Indonesian rom
Thanks for info, MIUI EU ROM sounds better for me since it has call recoring too! Is there any issue with NFC (Google payment)? Thanks

Personally I've never bothered with NFC since most cards use NFC anyways haha. Maybe someone else here can answer this for you - I'm assuming it works but my device is also rooted which often clashes with banking apps or Google payments too regardless of magisk hide etc
 
OK, I set Magisk 24.3 again, set Deny list for apps not to detect it, hide Magisk ap.. and last but not least - unistalled Google Pay updates and cleared cache..
I've added my cards (standard bank + Revolut virtual) and all works, GP says all is peachy !!!

I think i am ****ed... cant get out of fastloop, no access to device storage, but device is still unlocked

View attachment 5655551

On REDMI NOTE 11 PRO 5G purchased from xiaomi Thailand
followed all instructions, installed rom, got stuck on MIUI logo at reboot
had to reflash original rom with xiomitool V2
EDIT apparently, i have to download a VEUXG rom, even if when i check with fastboot it says it is a VEUX? ffs
At the end of the flashing this was in the command window
******** Did you mean to fastboot format this ext4 partition? ***************

On the MIUi EU page it clearly displays what ROM you need depending on your device... I will NOT directly link a download due to there being too many similar devices and people who don't know their devices correct model come into these forums and end up flashing incorrect files. Please read carefully and take the time to download the correct ROM for your phone.

sorry but this process is screwed up someplace, i was getting the same error above both with miflash and xiaomi tools. Then i flashed the same rom with powershell and got the same error, but i used the reboot command in powershell and it is now working again lol

    Hi all, thought I would post a simple guide for people who are wanting to get some customisation on their ROMs and install root.
    First off - as of this post there's no working twrp/orangefox for this device and as far as I'm aware android 12 itself still has lots of recovery quirks.

    So without further ado, we will be using the fastboot method to install MIUI 13 EU stable.

    First things first - we need to unlock our bootloader...

    Log into your Mi Account using your phone with a data connection (disable WiFi)

    - Enable Developer Settings -> Enable USB Debugging
    - Enable OEM Unlock in Developer Settings
    - Add device in Mi Unlock status in Developer Settings.

    You now need to wait 168 hours before the unlock tool will work....
    Now use your device as normal (yes you can use WiFi) but make sure you actually use it for things like calling, texts, GPS and some data usage. I say this because some users report that the timer has not expired even though technically 168 hours had passed.

    Right - still with me? Let's continue the guide. Next step before we unlock our bootloader is to backup our data.

    I repeat

    BACKUP YOUR ENTIRE DEVICE BECAUSE IT WILL BE WIPED ENTIRELY. That means your photos, music, everything. This will delete everything. You have been warned.

    Download the tool here


    And follow the on-screen prompts and eventually your phone will reboot.
    I usually let it completely boot (may take 10 minutes) until it enters the MIUI welcome screen etc just to verify the device is still functioning as expected.

    Next phase has two options:
    Option one, install MIUI EU ROM and root
    Option two install root only.

    If you only want to root your stock MIUI then skip to option two down below.

    Option one, install MIUI EU ROM and root:
    First off, we will need ADB installed. I used the version linked below
    I put the folder in C:/ADB
    3
    Got the right one? Sweet, we're ready to flash MIUI EU.
    with your rom extracted into a folder (I put mine inside the adb folder) right click the bat file you wish to use - FORMAT or UPDATE, choose "copy path", insert in command line/cmd window then press enter. Follow on screen directions.

    Wait for it all to complete now you're good to go, it will reboot and you're successfully running MIUI EU! Now read below if you want to root your device too

    Root
    I'm guessing you've already booted up your phone running MIUI EU by now, set up the basics until you get it to the home screen.

    Download magisk and install it onto your phone.

    Now we need to patch our boot.img and lucky for us the boot.img is located inside the MIUI ROM you downloaded earlier on your PC - nice!
    Extract the boot.img and place this onto your phone via USB or SD card.
    Unfortunately for those running a stock ROM, you will need to locate your stock ROM files boot.img.

    Open magisk, tap install then the option to patch the boot.img (you'll see how to do this once you open the app)

    At this stage I removed any of the other MIUI files/folders from my ADB folder to avoid any confusion. transfer the patched boot.img into your ADB folder on your PC and rename it to boot.img

    Turn your phone off and boot into fastboot mode again Open CMD again
    Type "cd c:\adb" press enter.
    "Fastboot devices" press enter.
    (Make sure you see the numbers/letters that show your device is detected etc)
    Now type
    "fastboot flash boot boot.img"" press enter and wait for the process to complete.

    Congratulations you now have a nice fluid ROM without loads of bloat and root ready to install some goodies 😎

    Download fastboot image/rom for your phone.

    MAKE SURE YOU PICK THE CORRECT FILE FOR YOUR PHONE. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOUR DEVICES CODENAME IS, DO NOT PROCEED ANY FURTHER OTHERWISE YOU WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE.

    In MY case, my phone is the one listed in this forum, a Poco x4 pro 5g. So I downloaded the file for a Poco x4 pro 5g codenamed veux
    From here. EDIT: The file names have since been updated due to this phone having multiple varients so be sure to check which device/files you need - the correct file for a Poco x4 pro 5g is now "VEUXG"


    Extract the fastboot image/rom into this folder c:\ADB (or where you installed your ADB folder)
    Open "cmd.exe" on your PC
    Change to directory were you have installed adb & fastboot/ROM file locations
    Type (ALL commands here are without the quotation marks, for example the next few words would be: cd c:\adb) "cd c:\adb" press enter
    This will set ADB to our target folder that you moved your fastboot ROM into.
    Connect your phone to the pc and reboot phone. Then by holding "Volume -" and "Power on" buttons simultaneously after approx 10 seconds or so you should see "fastboot" on the phone.

    Now in the CMD window, type "fastboot devices" and hit enter.
    You should see a number (sometimes with characters) appear alongside the word fastboot which signals that you're connected correctly.
    if you dont see a number:
    change USB port / change USB cable / use USB 2.0 / check driver installation...

    Once you have fastboot detecting your device, DOUBLE CHECK YOU HAVE THE CORRECT INSTALLATION FILE FOR YOUR DEVICE.

    For those of you who haven't tried a MIUI EU ROM I suggest you have a Google to see what additional features it offers over stock. I prefer it over any aosp/custom ROM due to the stability, customization and the fact it's stripped of all MIUI bloatware
