Firmware: AFH - 9.9.3


1. Firmware-9.6.27

Since the Max3 has antirollback-protection, I would like to know, If I have to install Firmware-9.6.27 with this ROM or 9.9.3(1) as mentioned in the link.

If I have to use 9.6.27 where can I download it?


If I follow this link https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/firmware/nitrogen/weekly/9.6.27/ there is the Chinese vrsion, not the global!

With 9.9.3, which is linked I find in the archive the China-version only, no global one! So the question is, what is linked with the download here:


The latest global fiirmware with Android 9 seems to be:
https://xiaomifirmwareupdater.com/firmware/nitrogen/stable/V11.0.6.0.PEDMIXM/ seems to be global

Then there is for global:


THe above are global too.

So please help me to choose the correct firmware for a global Max3.

I've flashed this "old" Rom few days ago. All is going well so far. Battery very well, theming is fantastic. I'm on version 2.9.

Only a problem: has this Rom any sound picker other than Sounds from Google?
If I flash Open Gapps pico, it's impossible to set up the notification sounds in Telegram and WhatsApp, no sound picker appears.
Flashing "nano" Open Gapps, which includes the Google Sounds, no problem, this app appears for setting up the notification.
I told about this because I haven't had any similar problems with AOSIP, AICP, EXTENDED, etc

EDIT: I have tried a workaround that has worked, keeping the pico Gapps without flashing the nano. I used Titanium bckp to convert "Sounds" to an user app, and it worked!
On rebooting the device, I had the Gapps that I prefer, with the Sounds in addition.
