Well, I don't think that's a good idea, backing up data partition from one completely different rom and restoring it on other different one.. Use swift backup or migrate to backup your apps. U need to root.
It's miui, but has more features when compared to global rom, it's based on the Chinese version, for some reason the Chinese one has more features and an more updated miui version. I'm using it right now, also, xiaomi eu is super debloated which is great.Sorry for the dumb question but I wanted to know what's the deal with this xiaomi.eu ROM (first time Xiaomi user). Is it supposed to be a MIUI-based ROM with optimizations/small changes?
I'm just asking because I am looking around for ROMs with even better battery.
Oh I see. How is it compared to battery life? And does it have Dolby Atmos?
Is rooting xiaomi.eu as easy as flashing magic via twrp? Also does rooting desable any features and make fingerprint issues, banking apps etc?
And my last question is, can we still update the rom via the update section if we root it?
In general, how can we have root on this rom and what are the draw backs?
Can somebody list the differences between the xiaomi eu and the global?
Everybody keeps saying "features", but nobody actually says the features itself.
It makes it difficult to decide whether to go custom or stay truly stock.
I used to own a samsung, knox kinda gave me a phobia of customs
Flash a stock fastboot rom if you are on any AOSP rom to prevent errors while flashing.
No need, you just have to unlock your bootloader, then boot into fastboot, connect the phone to your laptop/pc. then double click on the bat file to run the fastboot installation script in the rom zip file after you extract it. You can follow the full guide here:
Thank you very much for the given hints/support, i will try this and then report the results here.Idk, you're making yourself so confuse while it's such a simple thing.
You want xiaomi.eu, right? So.
Download this rom - Xiaomi.Eu - Rom & flash it via fastboot. U just need to go to fastboot on mobile and use the windows_fastboot_first_install_with_data_format.bat, or if u have mac, use the mac one, or the linux one.
It will flash it automatically, just let it do the work.
After booting, set up the pattern lock, the swiping line thing one, after that go to fastboot again, and on your PC type:
fastboot boot twrp.img (if u type fastboot boot and hold & drag the twrp.img file to the cmd tab, it will automatically "write" the location of the file) - use this one twrp.img - PC
It will sucessfully boot into twrp, and then u will flash the twrp.img in your phone, u choose the twrp.img and u flash it to "install recovery ramdisk" - flash this img in twrp, so u stick with twrp - Twrp.img - flash on mobile while on twrp
After that, u can flash this update/ota in twrp, the miui 12.5.3 - 12.5.3 miui - flash on twrp
Done, u have your phone updated and with xiaomi.eu rom flashed.
