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?

    Thank you! I read that it is possible to do this even without formatting the data, you say it creates problems?
    OneOS is different. If u get errors in booting, format data. You can move from Xiaomi.EU stable to beta without formating data.
    just flashed this a couple hours ago. what's the issues to check?

    Do you have a Mi 11X? For some reason the video lag was not there for all models.

    On my phone i couldn't play a video without it pausing/lagging or getting sound stopped, it was really bad.
    I mean if I have a global version of Poco f3 can flash EU version ...i am on stable 12.5.2 on my Poco f3 global
    Yes you need to unlock bootloader and flash the xiaomi.eu rom through TWRP recovery.
    To all who are facing stuttering issues on video playback / playing games etc when using Xiaomi.eu rom on Mi11x (india) - flash the correct firmware for the phone after flashing the eu ROM. You can find the correct firmware as a flashable zip on xiaomifirmwareupdater.com - mi 11x india codename is aliothin

    After flashing the firmware, the lag issue has disappeared for me

    I can't find an answer for this exactly yet, but:

    To install, the Xiaomi.Eu instructions say to flash from China Rom.

    I'm assuming that my Poco F3 comes with Global.

    Do I need to flash the Global to Chinese ROM, and _then_ Flash the Xiaomi.Eu rom?

    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:

    I just updated from the previous stable to 12.5. So far the only bug i encountered was the live wallpaper which i had set was automatically changed to default static one and when i tried to set it back, it would just show a black screen instead of the wallpaper but i fixed it by setting it again but from the theme store this time, where i originally downloaded it from. I'll report any other bugs if i encounter them.
    Generally it would be nice to give a feedback after a helping advice or give at least a like. First of all it's just nice and polite and second, it motivate to help other people as well. I'm here more than 10 years and may be I'm old school. I know time change and it's no offense! Thanks all together.
    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 devices
    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.
    Thank you very much for the given hints/support, i will try this and then report the results here.

    I promised to report my results here, so...
    I first thought about trying to flash my device via linux (mint) but at least i didnt want to end up in a bricked device or not knowing how to proceed (i'm not a linux-profi) so i did it in windows10 based on the infos i had before and the support of LiNe1771 here on line above in https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/miui-12-5-stable-xiaomi-eu.4267741/post-85171517.

    My full procedure (sorry, it sounds like flashing for noobs, but with new deivices every 2 or 3 years i'm still no professional flasher) was:

    1. backup all photos and settings from the device and do a last sync (google etc.), as data will be lost
    2. download twrp from here https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=325130 or here https://www.mediafire.com/file/5s0aswy33rflylu/TWRP.img (seems to be the same)
    3. rename the downloaded twrp*.img to twrp.img
    4. download and extract xiaomi.eu from here https://sourceforge.net/projects/xi...files/xiaomi.eu/MIUI-STABLE-RELEASES/MIUIv12/ (the newer at same source doesnt have the scripts included, but also download it, you can use it later for updating directly to newest version)
    5. download and install adb-setup-1.4.3 from here https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...ds-adb-installer-v1-4-3.2588979/post-48915118 to PC
    6. reboot PC (to make sure, windows has drivers etc. found and finally installed)
    7. set phone to fastboot mode (power + volume-down)
    8. open powershell in Windows
    9. connect to PC (usb2-port, not usb3)
    10. test correct device-recognizing via "fastboot devices" in windows-powershell (should find the connected device and show its device number)
    11. in windows-powershell start the script found in the extracted xiaomi.eu zip with command "windows_fastboot_first_install_with_data_format.bat" (in the same directory as it is regularly extracted, so it finds the needed imgs in the subfolder there)
    12. wait for successful end the script (especially the last part 7 of 7 lasts longer, dont panic)
    13. phone reboots automatically (let the phone connected to usb)
    14. poco-Logo / bsssst / MIUI-logo / MIUI-Startsound
    15. wait... (felt like 3 minutes, dont panic)
    16. First-install-GUI / configuration wizard comes up
    17. enter SIM-PIN
    18. complete the personal setup without installing a security PIN and without installing any fingerprint (account, WIFI, restore apps etc.) (dont know if that was neccessary, but i had time and didnt want to restart all)
    19. wait for the phone automatically restoring everything from cloud-backup / playstore
    20. manually reboot phone to fastboot mode (power + volume-down)
    21. twrp starts automatically (phone is still connected to usb)
    22. manually copy twrp.img from PC to phone into directory ./download
    23. in twrp choose the twrp.img from the directory ./download and flash it to "install recovery ramdisk"
    24. (i suggest, you normally could stop here and disconnect and reboot, because twrp and rom are now installed, but i wanted to flash the latest rom immediately in this procedure:)
    25. dont reboot, let the phone connected to usb
    26. manually copy xiaomi.eu_multi_HMK40_POCOF3_V12.5.3.0.RKHCNXM_v12-11.zip (not extracted) from PC to phone directory ./download
    27. in twrp choose install ./download/xiaomi.eu_multi_HMK40_POCOF3_V12.5.3.0.RKHCNXM_v12-11 (no zip verification) and swipe to flash
    28. wait for "...done" in twrp
    29. reflash twrp.img to "install recovery ramdisk" (i read to do this after every manually rom-flash)
    30. wait for "...done" in twrp
    31. disconnect phone
    32. reboot phone
    33. poco-Logo / bsssst / MIUI-logo / MIUI-Startsound
    34. wait... (felt like 3 minutes, again dont panic)
    35. gui comes up, tadaaa, ready

    Thank you.
