[rom & tutorial] update fake rom 8.2.0.2 to global dev official with lock bootloader

UPDATE YOUR FAKE ROM 8.2.0.2 TO GLOBAL DEV OFFICIAL WITH LOCK BOOTLOADER​
*link ROM for ROOTED USERS WITH TWRP IS BELOW

Since I know most dont like the hassle of unlocking and wish to stay at locked bootloader but able to receive official updates.


I found a way to update your fake ROM (usually 8.2.0.2 NCAMIEC)
Accessible via MI PCsuite from mentioned fake ROM (if you are already on China ROM, you can't use this method)


Do follow below tutorial - no unlocking needed.

  • Only your mi6 & its cable ofc
  • PC/Laptop with proper ADB driver
  • Internet Connection
    *******wipe data before flashing is highly recommended to avoid errors and FC
  • FIRST: MAKE SURE YOUR DEVICE IS IN RECOVERY MODE then CHOOSE "CONNECT WITH MI ASSISTANT"
  • SECOND : Connect your MI6 to your PC
  • - MI PCSuite still wont read your phone -
  • THIRD: Click the arrow on Update and Choose :
  • R.Flash

and MI PCsuite will search proper update for you

  • FOURTH : Just wait until the download is done, then it will be updated





*NOTE THAT IF YOU DONT WIPE DATA BEFORE UPDATING;
FIRST UPDATE WILL BE FAILED

but dont be sad (lol)

TRY ONE MORE TIME

(at 81-83% MI PCSuite will show that the update is failed but your phone is still booting, why? because the data of 8.2.0.2 is a modified rom and updater will crash)


Current Update is 7.6.1



7.6.1 :WEB APPS OFFICIAL SUPPORT
QUICK CHARGE INDICATOR
ETC ETC

Good Luck.
FOR ROOTED USERS WITH TWRP:
  • Flash like any other ROM.
  • FLASH SUPERSU OR CHANGE THE BOOT.IMG TO EU OR ANY OTHER MODIFIED BOOT.IMG
(IF NOT BOOTLOOP)
or use this method: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=72576697&postcount=23



I'd like to share Global beta Recovery Rom rom (leak) ;

Is this the file? It's in Chinese. Did you manage to find an English version Mi Recovery that's suitable for Mi6?
The language changed to wtv language your phone is on. I tried via twrp and got bootloop. tried via recovery with eu rom and nothing happened. I'm going to try the recovery again but on chinese stable or dev next.

can i install this without unlocking the bootloader ?
Probably not possible unless you're already on the global stable 8.2.0.2 rom.


Edit: after trying with recovery on china dev, no good. Can't verify. Unless we have tgz file

if you are on chinese stable try this method

unlock bootloader (must have!)

fastboot boot twrp-3.1.1.0-sagit-v2.img (must be this version)

in TWRP
wipe-format data
copy ROM to internal storage (while still in twrp)
flash rom
restart
enjoy ROM

if method gives bootloop, you should encrypt your files prior to boot
after flashing the rom, flash chinese orig recovery, restart recovery and choose 2nd option, 2nd option (a red message will appear). its ok, chose the only option available, and voila a green message will apear.
now first option to reboot and that's it your phone will boot (hopefully).
I talk about options because the only mi 6 original recovery i found is chinese so i don't understand anything.
But... as far as i can understand it will make a factory reset and will encrypt your files again.
without encryption miui won't boot. (don't know why though)

Yup, you're right. It was the encryption that was preventing it to boot. 2nd method mentioned worked. Thanks :good:
