Which one are you using now? I'm having issues with like "Could not mount /data and unable to find crypto footer". I tried to wipe all data but i'm not able to format it, same issue.

any ideas?

I don't know. I think it has.
I had miui global 11.3.5.0 PFCEUXM then I installed mi-globe.com_v11_pyxis_20.1.16 from miui rom builder site. I had a twrp backup of 11.3.5 and flashed it back. I had to pay an authorised account user to flash stable eu rom in edl mode. (no fastboot no recovery).
fastboot getvar anti returns value "1" so I thought it's ok.

I found another thread with a similar problem
