    May I return to stock ROM from xiaomi.eu? No antirollback is triggered?
    I ask because I tried to use MiFlash tool and 2-3 secs after I push "flash" it says flash success, but nothing was really flashed.
    Also, I tried to flash xiaomi.eu ROM by fastboot, but after asking me if I'm sure I wanna flash even I'll lose all data and writing "Y" and pushing Enter, the script close itself and nothing happens.
    Seems it's a fastboot problem, but windows sees the phone in fastboot mode (fastboot devices check).
    Any help will be appreciated! :)

    Place the rom and miflashtool in c:/ drive, not somewhere deep inside folders and then try. The folders containing the rom and miflashtool should not have spaces in their names.

    This error is given if the Miflash application and rom file are elsewhere than section C:. Throw the miflash program directly into the C:, change the folder name to something short in the rum, then move it into the C:. Try installing later. The problem needs to be fixed.

    example :app C:/Miflash
    Rom : C:/Mirom

    Xiaomi Poco F3
    Poco F3. Xiaomi.eu 12.5.2 .. miui optimisations: on. 24hours mild to moderate use. 7,5 hours SOT. And 31% to spare.. most of the time on wifi.
    Google photo zips up battery pretty quickly (just installed couple of hours ago: probably syncing)
    Happy with the SOT😎

      There are 2 versions of xiaomi.eu: stable and weekly. If u update from the same version (stable>stable or weekly>weekly) no need to wipe ur data (aka "dirty flash").

      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.

      UPDATE:
      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 12.5.2.0 from here https://sourceforge.net/projects/xi...files/xiaomi.eu/MIUI-STABLE-RELEASES/MIUIv12/ (the newer 12.5.3.0 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 12.5.2.0 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.

      Sorry for this longer thread, but i am totally confused and now tried to find clear and reproducable way to (sounds easy) flash my POCO F3

      - from stock rom 12.0.5.0 RHKEUXM (actually installed and running)
      - to xiaomi.eu rom 12.5.3.0 RKHCNXM


      I downloaded

      1. "twrp-3.5.1_10-0-alioth-Nebrassy.img" (dated 2021-05-10) from here: https://androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=322193 (because mentioned here: https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/miui-12-0-12-1-12-2-12-5-stable-release.56191/post-548405 )
      and

      and
      3. "xiaomi.eu_multi_HMK40_POCOF3_V12.5.3.0.RKHCNXM_v12-11.zip" (dated) 2021-05-28) from here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/xi...files/xiaomi.eu/MIUI-STABLE-RELEASES/MIUIv12/ (because mentioned here: https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/miui-12-0-12-1-12-2-12-5-stable-release.56191/post-548405 )
      and
      4. "miui_ALIOTHEEAGlobal_V12.5.1.0.RKHEUXM_1efe939759_11.0.zip" (titled as recovery ROM) from here: https://bigota.d.miui.com/V12.5.1.0...AGlobal_V12.5.1.0.RKHEUXM_1efe939759_11.0.zip (because mentioned here: https://www.xda-developers.com/down...-several-xiaomi-redmi-mi-poco-devices/#alioth )
      and
      5. "miui_ALIOTHEEAGlobal_V12.0.5.0.RKHEUXM_07e1020d55_11.0.zip" (titled as recovery ROM) from here: https://bigota.d.miui.com/V12.0.5.0...AGlobal_V12.0.5.0.RKHEUXM_07e1020d55_11.0.zip because mentioned hier: https://www.xda-developers.com/down...-several-xiaomi-redmi-mi-poco-devices/#alioth )

      I believe, i have all the files and fullfilled all requirements:
      a. My POCO F3 is already officially unlocked (7 days waited)
      b. I deleted fingerprint an PIN in my POCO F3.
      c. I activated DEV-Options and activated USB-Debugging there.
      d. I installed adb and drivers in my Windows10 and LINUX Mint. Test on USB2-connection with "adb devices" shows, that device is correctly found.


      But after reading a lot of threads (really, i swear) from first to last post (xda and xiaomi-eu) i am very confused and unsure, what to do with all these things now:

      1. Which twrp-files should i use? The older "TWRP-3.5.1-alioth-Nebrassy-2.img" or the newer "twrp-3.5.1_10-0-alioth-Nebrassy.img" ?
      2. Rename one of the twrp-img-files to "twrp.img", because in the guides only is called "twrp.img"?
      3. copy which twrp to my phones directory ./download ?
      4. copy which ROM extracted or not extracted to my phones directory ./download ? (i guess NOT extracted)
      5. set phone to fastboot mode with power button + volume down
      6. connect phone to PC via USB2
      7. check connection via powershell or terminal and command "adb devices"
      8. install TWRP via fastboot by command "fastboot flash recovery twrp.img" (and / or) "fastboot boot twrp.img" ? https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/miui-12-0-12-1-12-2-12-5-stable-release.56191/ tells both commands...
      9. reboot to twrp or to fastboot or immediately install which of the ROMs i downloaded?
      10. clear cache AND/OR dalvik AND/OR data before installing ROM or immediately after flashing an before rebooting?

      I didnt find the here https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads...all-xiaomi-eu-rom-for-xiaomi-redmi-k40.60379/ mentioned sh-scripts for windows or linux in the downloaded ROMs.

      Could someone please help and comfirm a complete and sure procedure step by step please?

      Thank you
      Perru


      (BTW: I flashed some devices before, Samsung, Oneplus etc., but because of the different sources and partly different guides under https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/recovery-alpha-teamwin-recovery-project.4272625/post-84960573 and https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/miui-12-0-12-1-12-2-12-5-stable-release.56191/post-548405 and https://xiaomi.eu/community/threads...eu-rom-for-xiaomi-redmi-k40.60379/post-597135 and fragmented questions and answers i didn't find a proof and complete solution.)
      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.
      2
      An easier/simpler way:
      -boot into TWRP (any version): fastboot boot xxxx.img
      -copy "xiaomi.eu_multi_HMK40_POCOF3_V12.5.3.0.RKHCNXM_v12-11.zip" in Internal storage of the phone
      -flash it in Install section of TWRP
      -do a Format data (yes) in Wipe section of TWRP
      -reboot to System
      Done.
      Btw, xiaomi.eu has TWRP included, so after flash u'll have TWRP installed too.
      2
      I was planning to flash this ROM. Are you facing any problems with it? . And i play games on my phone and don't want laggy games. Do you recommend this latest ROM version or was the previous version was working good? Thanks.
      Just flash 12.5.2 and don't update and you will be fine.

      Stable version of miui 12.5 has been released by xiaomi.eu and this thread is for discussion about xiaomi.eu rom.
      .
      .
      Xiaomi.EU 12.5.1.0 Fastboot ROM
      Xiaomi.EU 12.5.3.0 Recovery ROM
      7
      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?

      Cheers!
      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.
      3
      If anyone is having problem installing xiaomi.eu fastboot rom, I fixed it by installing adb drivers and copying updated platform tools to the rom folder.
      3
      Is the same for the eu firmware?

      I've MIUI Global 12.0.4 Stable 12.0.4.0(RKHEUXM)

      Only need to unlock, put phone in fast boot and excute windows_fastboot_first_install_with_data_format.bat from donloaded package?

      No risk of brick?
      Yes you can do a clean flash directly from eea rom.
