Can anyone post some numbers ? SOT / total uptime?
I have on global 13.0.4 (latest) about 5,5 - 6 h SOT in 20-24 hours charge time on WQHD & 120 hz. How much better is
I want to go back to MIUI 13 stock rom. How to ?

I did a factory reset in stock recovery, and flashed the fastboot rom into fastboot mode (V13.0.4.0.SKBEUXM), no error, but once it's finished, it stay in fastboot mode instead of booting, and when i reboot, it boot into fastboot...
Sorry, but I don’t hold this device anymore. As I recall, the best way to return to stock is through the recovery tool that's available online. If you google “Mi11 recovery tool,” you should find what I'm talking about. Another option would be to do what you've already done: attempt to fast boot flash the latest available ROM. However, ensure that you format/wipe all data, internal storage, etc. In order to begin a clean install to avoid any issues upon boot. You should be able to find many “mi11 fastboot flashable ROMs” on XDA and Google.

tested. overall latest stable is 10% worse than global eea for my usage in battery wise. not much difference but much better user experience on because of it's features.

Is there a way we could convert the latest TWRP roms into fastboot flashable roms?
I can't seem to create an account on xiaomi eu so can't ask this there.

Edit: It seems that @ingbrzy you're an admin for the site, could you help me with this?

So here's the issue with the recovery roms. There is a mediastorage bug which doesn't let you send any media files on Telegram/Gmail and some other apps. This has been reported quite a few times on both Stable/weekly forums.
The issue has to be solved by a factory reset BUT it has to be done with the stock recovery.

Earlier it was easy to factory reset because the rom was shipped with stock recovery. This way media bug was gone and we could send any media files. However, now that TWRP is shipped with rom, the factory reset does not fix the issue. I have tried it from within MIUI reset and with TWRP, both continue to give the mediastorage bug.

I did find a workaround.

    What's wrong? Coming from latest miui dev ROM, cannot flash
    random TWRP issue..
    reboot to TWRP again until it installs correctly..
    Hi, is it possible to install updates without the help of a PC? Without necessarily having to download the rom from a PC every time and without giving the command fastboot.exe boot twrp.img
    For venus
    You can flash twrp to be more permanent and then just boot to twrp and flash the update when you want without the need to flash it on the computer every time.
    For flashing twrp.
    1.Reboot to fastboot mode.
    2."fastboot boot twrp.img" on windows cmd
    3.go to Advanced ,then Flash Current TWRP.
    Didn't know you could on A12, in which directory?
    I update to the last beta today with twrp without issues .I boot to twrp pressing the power and volume up buttons. You need to use this twrp
    Download the skkk version.
    Didn't know it can be done on A12, in which directory?
    The following guide explains EVERYTHING one needs to know to install custom recoveries to Xiaomi phones for MIUI 13/A12: where to download from, how to install temporary (for one time booting) and permanently:

    It's all about taking time and carefully reading (if necessary, several times). All those who did so, were able to do it without further questions

    Good luck

    Stupid question but EU network band work as it should ? L1 certificate? What about Google pay?
    all OK..

    [Update!] So after 6 days of testing I am satisfied with 12.5 rom and stayed on this rom. But I did had a little adventure which I want to share. After first installation I uninstalled bunch of apps (some to many) and I had some random freezes and few minor bugs. So I tried to download EU stable but all of the files were corrupted on the export (I downloaded around 5 times from 3 different devices and exported with 3 different software's like WinRAR, 7zip and windows) and the result was always the same ending in errors. But non the less I tried to install it and I bricked my device :) first time :) So I tried to install global and bricked my device for the second time :) (follow @PandaKiller instruction how to solve rollback protection if you want to go back from 12.5 to global or some other rom) and so I tried my last option that is to just install the same rom 12.5 which I was already on and that end up successful. I uninstall bunch of apps again but much less this time and the rom is very stable since than (March 6.) and works good. Insignificant battery drain on airplane mode or while the phone is off, around 4 - 6 % which is acceptable. Global rom have google dialer which for me is hideous and I like miui dialer much much more. EU 12.5 is noticeable faster and more responsive.​

    Apps that I removed :

    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.mi.globalbrowser (MIUI browser)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 (Google)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 (Google Assistant)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 (Google Assistant)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 (MIUI Health)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 (Google Lens)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 (Mail)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 (Messaging)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.payment (Mi Coin)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.videoplayer (Mi Video)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.player (Music)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.notes (Notes)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.huanji (Mi Mover)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.weather2 (Weather)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.personalassistant (MIUI app vault)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.xiaomi.migameservice (Mi Game Service)
    pm uninstall -k --user 0 (Home Screen Tips)

    I updated uninstalled apps on 2 places where I posted it so for other users don't have same problems I had.
    Updated my Xiaomi Mi11 yesterday to EU-rom Stable.
    I've had many doubts about flashing, because so many people here bricked their Mi11's.

    Followed all the rules, and..... it worked :)

    Some remarks to people who have fear to update:

    -my phone is European version, with latest 12.0.9 version on it. Not chinese (as the instrucions tell you). That is no problem for flashing the EU Rom.

    -i unlocked bootloader through official Xiami unlock tool

    -after unlock, i rebooted phone and set it up again (just quick and dirty). Also check if "OEM Unlock" is still switched on.

    -after downloading ROM it was kind of hard to find the "Unblock zip content" in the properties of the zip-file. It's there right after you download the file, but disappears after some seconds, leaving you no option to select that in Windows. Kind of strange.
    I downloaded the file 3 times, third time i was quick enough to be able to tick the box.

    -i followed all the rules stated in the start of this topic

    -another part where it could have gone wrong: a couple of seconds after starting the update procedure in CMD, you see the screen stopping. Leaving you with the last message: "Successful". I almost wanted to plug out the usb-cable and restart, but then i realized: "this has taken only 20 seconds, it can't be that fast...". But: the screen on my pc didn't show any sign of further progress. So: my hands already became sweaty.... "oh no...another mi11 bricked". But: it worked. After some time the update process continued.
    So the advice here is: Stay Calm And Wait!! It will continue after a minute or so.

    -i also got an error message in the end about not being able to create some disk part. But: that was no problem. Mi11 booted, which took around 8 minutes and then it was done.
