yes will reset timer for sure, if have left few days better wait. i did it and lost 3 days lol bummer. in 2 weeks i think from miui forums will have global miui 10 stable ,so anyway will need to wipe again to install it will not install from beta to global, and this will need unlocking permissions. they became very efficient in blocking this kinda bypasses maybe new team
ps: as well ive read that the 8.24 method is blocked as well so no way besides to wait for unlock.
