I just bought a used China model that has the global 12.5.4 on it. I am using It in in the US. Could anyone tell me if there are any reason I should not want this EU custom ROM on it? and if not would I need to first need to go back to the china ROM before moving to this ROM?

I have plenty experience with custom roms on Samsung products in particular. This phone is not currently rooted. This is my first Xiaomi phone as I am upgrading from a Huawei p30 pro. I don't want to even soft brick it with so little experience with Xiaomi.

I have the CN ver 12/512gb model.
I recently switched to stable xiaomi.eu
The reason was that, my apps since the latest updates, were not getting the notifications properly and I saw that they were forcibly closed in the background ( even keeping them open in memory, the lock function, didn't helped with h the notit ).

Since I switched to the stable xiaomi.eu everything came back to normal.
I can use all of my apps normally now (banking ones and productivity ones ) without any issues.

All though when it launched the first few original CN ROM versions were pretty good, issues started to appear after the latest updates and I couldn't work on the phone as I did before.

Good luck !

Xiaomi EU ROM is for those who want the functionalities of the China ROM but with all the adaptation of the Global market (Google play services) without loosing the possibility to use safety net related apps. This comes at a loss of performance and few bugs here and there.

So for chinese region = CHINA ROM
for EU region = EEA ROM
for India = INDIA ROM
for all other regions = GLOBAL ROM

these are official releases by Xiaomi for devices for particular regions.

And then there is Xiaomi.eu rom which is a custom ROM (not by xiaomi but by a developer from community). This Xiaomi.eu rom is based on China ROM but is made available for any mi 11 ultra user irrespective of where they live.

If you have a phone which came stock with CHINESE ROM you cannot flash EEA/INDIA/GLOBAL ROM without EDL authorization (its a development access for xiaomi service centers to flash ROMS). So as a normal user you cannot YET. But you can flash xiaomi.eu rom once you unlock the bootloader.

    The only benifits that you'll get from EU over any other rom is free headache. and thinking that you have the best rom ever, while you have the worst.

    Good luck 😃

    Considering a Mi11 Ultra buy, can someone tell me what the actual benefit is of flashing EU ROM? Is it a security thing, software compatibility, less bugs, etc? ie. Is it worth it or even useful to flash EU ROM these days?
