Yes, you can flash it on top of PPUI. Just download the zip, copy it into your phone's storage, then flash it in your custom recovery, wipe Dalvik/ART cache, then reboot. Your data won't be affected.
i did exactly that and it bricked my phone, had to unbrick it using the miflash tool. It just got me stuck in a blank boot screen and the only thing i could boot to was fastboot.

You flashed the wrong file then. I flashed the global MIUI 13 firmware from the website and that bricked my phone too. But lower versions like the one I linked above or the latest MIUI 12 global firmware are working fine, I tested both myself (currently on 12.5.6 global). Try using 12.5.6 global, and flash it before flashing the ROM.

Ty bro, i just sideloaded the firmware and it worked fine. I don't know what happened the last time but it worked.
Also how do i check if my firmware actually downgraded/upgraded?

Errors happen sometimes, might have got corrupted while downloading or flashing. I'm not aware of any way to confirm, but as long as things I working smoothly not a problem

Yep, you were also right about this. I downloaded the latest global firmware (which was the MIUI 13, global version) and that's what soft-bricked my phone. Thanks for pointing this out. MIUI 12 Firmware Versions work just fine when installed.

Since I flashed the ROM, all goes fine on the phone.
I can call. I receive call.
I can send SMS.
BUT I do not receive SMS.
If I put my SIM in other phone, the SMS is receiving.
Someone have the same issue ?
Anyone with a fix, please ?

    NOTE: It is STRONGLY recommended to fully wipe your device before flashing and please avoid restoring system apps and system data with Titanium Backup (or with any backup/restore app) as this can cause stability issues that are very hard to debug, restoring regular apps is fine.
    If you believe you know what you're doing - then fine, go ahead, but please don't complain if you experience any strange behavior.


    CLEAN FLASH :

    - Download the latest build
    - Reboot to recovery.
    - Take a backup.
    - Format Data
    - Flash the latest build
    - Flash Fcrypt [If you want to decrypt else u can skip]
    - Reboot :p

    DIRTY FLASH :
    - Download the latest build
    - Reboot to recovery
    - Flash the latest build
    - Wipe Cache
    - Reboot :p

    What works?

    Wifi | RIL | Mobile data | GPS | Camera
    Flashlight | Camcorder | Bluetooth | Fingerprint reader | Lights | Sound | vibration
    Almost everything

    What doesn't work?

    ScreenRecorder (Use third part)
    Nothing more...
    You tell me! :p
