Do keep track of version of firmware you have installed. I must have hard bricked my Mi 6X, by trying to install any version of firmware from TWRP, after reboot it was dead.

It's been almost a month, still have to wait till November when I next goto China, hopefully I can claim warranty for that, I bought it in China. Read on Baidu Tieba, many people has similar issue, have to replace the whole logic board.

See op and confirm my note at the end of the post....
So that i will update the first post....


please don't take this as an offense (english is not my first language), I just need to send the point :)

not every rom /firmware shipped by xiaomi had the "Anti Roll Back" (ARB), I personally owning the Mi 6x and had rolled-back from 9.5.11.0 to 9.5.7.0 without any issue.
I've completely forgotten since when did xiaomi implemented this ARB, but I'd stay away from anything beyond 9.5.15.0 (since the LOS 15.1 for Mi 6x by Isaac Chen is based on 9.5.11.0, I probably don't need anything beyond 9.5.11.0).

to check whether or not our device is "infected" by the ARB, one can type this command while on fastboot mode:
"fastboot getvar anti" (without the quote marks)
if the command return <4, then it's safe to rollback.
else if the return is 4 (or greater), then it had Anti Roll-Back, and you should not roll-back.
further info can be obtained here:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/redmi-note-5-pro/how-to/faq-questions-answered-t3816185

if you just download a complete fastboot rom, I'd recommend to read this thread carefully:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/re...warning-update-to-recent-miui-builds-t3814895

all the treads I've mentioned are do related to the redmi note 5, but in the end I think every xiaomi device with active support from xiaomi will be facing the same fate.
I'd suggest anyone with "anti 3 or less" to refrain themselves from updating their rom, if they still intended to switching apart from miui.

saying don't roll-back from your current rom, should be safe for anybody.
but for somebody with "anti 3 or less" this can put them at disadvantage since probably the custom rom were based on something older than what they're currently using.
for Mi 6x, I can say that if you're still on 9.5.11.0 it's still safe to roll back.
I'm not quite sure when did the xiaomi started to implement the ARB on the development rom, though.


from what I've gathered so far, the ARB are also including the firmwares.
so if one had "anti 4" don't flash older firmware to their device.

the ARB matter should worth to dig further though, and maybe deserves it's own thread since I'm afraid it might discourage and confuse people when switching to custom rom.
 
Our device got MIUI 10 Stable on xiaomi.eu as well.

Thanks in advance
AOSP based ROMs won't brick your device. Only MIUI based ones do. Always remember to make sure you are installing latest version release when you go back to MIUI based ROMs or Stock Based ones.
