I am wondering how to flash the newest vendor and firmware image, without MiFlash compatability. The ones in the links provided by the OP don't have the necessary scripts for it to work with MiFlash. I also did not find any online resource for these firmware and vendor images.
- How can I flash the vendor and firmware images without MiFlash?
- Where are these firmware images from? Where can I find the source for this newest version? I could only find really old firmware and vendor images.
I tried flashing the provided zip through TWRP, but I got the famous ERROR: 7 - E2001: Failed to update vendor image.
I mounted vendor and firmware partitions. I formatted data and wiped storage, etc. Nothing makes the error go away.
The vendor+firmware zips I've linked is basically full MIUI recovery flashable zip without system, product, boot/dtbo and vbmeta. The vendor and firmware in it are untouched. If you get "failed to update vendor image" that means there's something wrong with your super partition, so you must flash latest full MIUI recovery zip. If you still face the error then you must flash super.img from MIUI fastboot images, in fastboot mode.
