Hi,

I recently bought a Mi 8, 64 GB from a local retailer.

When MIUI 11 came out, I started looking for ways to install it - when I came to a thread suggesting to download an official global ROM, Iv'e done it.
But, I ended up with seeing an error message suggests that I can't install it since it's not compatible with the 'vendor'.

Pocking and digging around the web didn't produce any useful information..
Can I get your help with figuring out what's the origin of it?

I'd like to take it to the retailer - but I need more information that will come handy when I'm filling my complain.

Cheers,
-M

Did you unlocked the bootloader?
Did you downloaded the right rom?

I also have a mi8, 6gb ram, 64gb ROM.
The codename is dipper.

Go to Xiaomi.eu website, and download the right rom and try again

I didn't. it's a sealed box phone. everything is the same as I bought it.
I'm not quite sure that EU rom will fit, but I'll try to seek for more information there..

Isn't that an H3G phone? I think you got a phone branded H3G or whatever it's called in your country, that's why you got the vendor message error, I guess..

Don't ask me how to fix it or further details because I can't help you more than this, but if you want to, unlock the bootloader and flash the global rom. Be aware of what you're doing if you want to take it back to the retailer.

I got no such phone in my country.. I guess, it's related to a bad stock/missplaced one.
let's hope someone else knows exact details about it.

Thank you for the time spent to help.

I don't think so.. I mean, I'm not saying you did buy it, but the retailer may have sold you one of those..
Look at the name of the ROM, P stands for Android version, EA stands for dipper, MI is the region of the ROM and then..... HG, why not XM? I don't know what XM means, but I think that HG stands for H3G. You can also find ROMs ending with VF, why? Vodafone..

You need to open the phone and follow the instructions to setup your Mi Cloud account, setup Google and use the phone. The Miui 11 update will show up via the updater. At the time the most current global stable build remains on Android 9.

After using the phone for 360 Hours or two weeks, you can unlock the bootloader. From there install whatever you want.

Personally, I recommend the custom Xiaomi.EU rom which is also Miui 11 but based on the Android 10 Chinese beta. But of course all Chinese is removed and Google services are installed. I feel that this is best version of Miui yet.


Edit: I had never heard of the exact that you are using in HG. For this device have a specialized carrier version of Miui?

If so you will need to check with the carrier to if it is possible to unlock the bootloader. I have heard of similar cases with people who own the MiMix3 5G phones.

Thanks for all the answers.
@aittamattia
I don't really know to whom it belongs.. I'm trying to figure out this magic. I myself think that it's H3S device.
@MirceaViP
Salut. I did try it out. it ended up stating it's official international version.
@tsongming
I'd like to avoid unlocking the bootloader at the moment. I need this device to connect to a corporate account, which, requires to have the bootloader closed and unchanged.

I was talking with the reseller and he knew nothing about this H3S. We agreed to look for information together.. let's see what's going to be the end of this story.

I recently found out about these ROMs, it's just that you have to wait for the manufacturer to push the update. Also, check this link to Mi Community, it's in Spanish but look for the code name of your ROM and will help you to better understand the whole thing (and where your phone comes from.. ;)).

aittamattia,

I'm still not getting it :( - what is that ROM? who is the maintainer?


FYI : You posted this question under the Rom's, kernels and Recoveries section. A moderator will surely delete this thread when they find out about it.

Your rom is a carrier rom, you will get the update when the carrier add their own bloatware and releases to you.

Thanks for all the information.
I hope a moderator will move it to Q&A as I want to take it to the reseller to negotiate my options.

Hey,
You have a carrier specific phone. Did you buy it from Three UK?
I bought mine from there exactly one year ago. It came with MIUI 9 and running that "HG" ROM. I had to unlock the bootloader, flash the original global version and lock the bootloader afterwards.
If you don't flash the global version issued by Xiaomi, you will only be able to update to MIUI 11 when Three issue the update. Three is managing the software updates.
Don't waste your time with their customer services, they have no idea what is the software version. If you have the option to get your money back, buy it direct from Xiaomi UK or Europe.

My phone is working fine since then, I'm able to update it via OTA normally.

Please have a look on this:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/mi-8/help/xiaomi-mi8-3-uk-network-t3886669/

There are some topics on the Mi Community as well. I had a discussion with some people that had the same issue.

Hope it helps.
Cheers

Thanks for the time spent to share information about this ROM.
At the meantime, I'm trying to negotiate nicely with the reseller. It seems like he is looking for information about it as well.

Do you know if H3S got some official customer support system which I can get more inputs on it?

As for the process you've done:
1. Unlocked bootloader
2. Flashed global rom
3. Relocked bootloader

After this process you were able to get OTA updates?

Hi, that's good.
I spoke to their customer services at that time, but had no luck. No one could provide any precise information about the upgrade. Maybe they are able to provide more information now.
So I decided to flash the global version by myself.

Yes, I'm getting OTA updates normally. The official global version is PEAMIXM. I'm on 11.0.6 now.

Cheers

Well,
I'm in a process of probably replacing it to the official version with actually returning the device and getting other.
if it won't work with the reseller, I'll flash a new global rom and that's it.

P.S. - I saw that there are tools that can do it without unlocking the boot loader, like using EDL. did you tired that?

Thanks :)

Hey!

I didn't try using EDL, maybe it's an alternative. I had to wait 360 hours to get to unlock the bootloader, then the process of flashing and relock bootloader took 15min.
There are other options of ROMs out there, but I wanted to keep it as much as original as possible.

Hope you find a solution soon!
Cheers
