Hi there, I've bought (online) a Redmi Note 10 Pro; I am aware of the fact that this phone suffer of the proximity sensor bug: https://www.mysmartprice.com/gear/r...ly-acknowledged-upcoming-miui-update-fix-bug/

Since I don't have this phone yet, I guess if will arrive with a software fix; however, while searching, I found this discussion on Reddit:
https://www.reddit.com/r/miui/comments/pggief
As you can read, they claims that MIUI 12.5.8 will fix such bug, so I want to ask: can I directly update the phone with such MIUI?

The process seems simple, as I've read here:

I understand that I have to go here
https://c.mi.com/bd/miuidownload/detail?device=1900389, select the global version of Redmi Note10 Pro, then download this file https://bigota.d.miui.com/V12.5.8.0.RKFMIXM/miui_SWEETGlobal_V12.5.8.0.RKFMIXM_61c0e33df5_11.0.zip and install it directly from the phone, right?

Any thoughts about? Will I risk something? I also read that I can set the phone to receive the latest updates, otherwise.

Thank you.

I say nothing's perfect. For such a great phone at a dirt cheap price, I wouldn't care much about this issue.

Naturally, it's hard sleeping over a button left unclicked. And you know you will. It's just a matter of time so don't waste it.

I just received the 12.5.6.0.RKFEUXM.

Why didn't receive that one?

I am still on 12.5.4.0...
On 29 October (five days ago) ha been released 12.5.6.0, SWEETEEAGlobal, the one on which I am on:

But is the same for me: on the phone I don't get the update notifications, also if I go in the update section of the ROM. Maybe because is reported as beta (Branch: Stable Beta)?

Here what I found out for EU version.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIUI

An organisation named Xiaomi Europe (xiaomi.eu), not a part of Xiaomi, was set up in 2010 as a community for English-language MIUI Android and Xiaomi products. xiaomi.eu works officially with Xiaomi on app translations and bug fixing. xiaomi.eu issues its own versions of Xiaomi MIUI ROMs, based on the stable and weekly beta versions of the Chinese ROM

As for OTA Updates:
patches are not supported, so a complete new ROM is downloaded each time

If patch aren't supported and a complete ROM is downloaded each time, what this means? That the phone will be wiped?

And in anyway, taking this as example:

There is full ROM as well incremental update:

Are a little bit confusing these Xiaomi's methods...

Incremental update is what you get with the automatic MIUI biult in OTA update. The download package is much smaller. It will not erase your apps nor data etc. It will also probably not fix any problems you got with rougue apps or bad settings.
