Anyone has any news on when the next update is planned? Been over 2 months since that last buggy update that's still in place.


Jul 4, 2020
I have updated to 12.5.3 from 12.0.9.
The performance seems slow as compared to 12.0.9.
But I think it's better than previous 12.5.2 update.

In the latest 12.5.3 update, whenever I make a call, the silent mode automatically turns off and it doesn't go back on when the call ends. I've checked all settings.

Is anybody else also facing this issue?

Has anyone found a solution yet?

Are there any improvements on bg apps? I've had them restarting over and over again starting 12.5. The update showed up in my notifs but was gone when I went to the updater.
i didn't test it, as soon as i noticed that 12.5.4 isn't smooth as 12.0.9, i immidiately switch back to 12.0.9

or if i want to experience 12.5.4 probably will use stock official ROM

    if this could be useful for someone, here my procedure to update to EU ROM.

    I started from stock rom, Global one, Updated to

    Your X3 has to have:
    * Unlocked Bootloader
    * Installed Recovery ( TWRP / OrangeFox )

    PS Personally I prefer OrangeFox on Xiaomi devices 😎

    The procedure is:
    01) copy Xiaomi EU ZIP file into the external Micro SD
    02) reboot into Recovery ( TWRP / OrangeFox )
    03) select and flash Xiaomi EU ZIP file from File Manager
    04) Wipe Dalvik
    05) Wipe Cache
    06) Format Data

    07) Reboot to System

    If u want to root the phone:
    08) Reboot into Recovery ( TWRP / OrangeFox )
    09) select and flash Magisk ZIP file from File Manager
    10) Wipe Dalvik
    11) Wipe Cache

    12) Reboot to System
    I had your problem too! My first TWRP was "3.4.0-0 By mahajant99" and got the Unable to Decrypt message.
    Then I tried to decrypt phone using this https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...ck-twrp-factory-image-stock-recovery.3358711/. Installed the app in Windows 10, executed the "Erase All Data / Decrypt Internal Storage". But there was an error there too, so I think it didn't decrypt anything...
    After I changed TWRP to "twrp-3.4.0-15-surya-mauronofrio" and rebooted to System and MIUI was on the screen!
    After the boot I got a message saying my phone was locked and to unlock it I had to enter my Xiaomi Password and that I did and the phone got unlocked.
    I think this was all I did...
    Now I have the EU ROM and Root.

    By the way, in the "TOOL ALL IN ONE" there is no option for X3, so I selected Poco F1 I guess... I know it was another Pocophone...

    Another update...
    Just remembered I read in another site about flashing another .img and a ZIP file, and I asked about it here. Just went to history and here it is: https://unofficialtwrp.com/xiaomi-poco-x3-root-twrp/

    I don't know if it will help you, but in there states that, after flashing TWRP, DON'T BOOT TO SYSTEM! First flash "no_verity_opt_Encrypt.zip". Again I ended up not doing what it says there (flash "Vmbeta.img" and flash "no_verity_opt_Encrypt.zip"), but it's another option for you, in case your phone is still stuck on TWRP...

    Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you for your hints! The TWRP by mauronofrio is the one which leads to that error in my case.
    My mistake was that I rebooted to system - in order to copy the new ROM into the internal storage so that I would be able to flash it.

    Try flashing stock Poco X3 Global ROM using Mi Flash tool and start again with a different recovery. Orange Fox recovery works well and it's what I used to flash this ROM.
    I Haven't use Mi Flash tool, but I'm sure you can Google it.
    Flash the global fastboot rom using Mi flash .... make sure you haven't relocked the bootloader by unchecking the necessary box
    Reboot into system
    Boot into fastboot
    Flash Orangefox recovery image using adb
    Reboot into recovery before you reboot into system or you will lose OF
    Boot into OF then flash Xiaomi.eu
    Format data .....
    Reboot into recovery
    Reboot to system
    These are the steps I used.

    This worked! Got Global ROM using Mi Flash without relocking the bootloader, Fastboot-flashed OrangeFox, flashed Xiaomi EU ROM, formatted data, rebooted into recovery, then to system - working! Thank you!
    How did you get horizontal recents menu? :O are you talking about the swipe up in the middle and hold gesture? I still have old recents

    Home Screen settings >> Arrange items in recents
    Flashed, noticed that Super Wallpapers cannot be downloaded (logcat showed that it tries to download them from Xiaomi Store, that is not available on Xiaomi.eu). I managed to install Snowy Peaks and Geometry by downloading APK from the web, I'm still trying to install Faraway Rings (that was available out-of-the-box on previous version)
    EDIT: found all Super Wallpapers APKs on apkmirror, installed them manually and correctly showed up in Super Wallpapers app :D
