Yeah, True. EEA is EU and Mi is global. Its confusing. I guess if you try to Update manually with inbuilt Updater (three dot) the Phone will only Flash correct Roms because without open bootloader you cant switch from EU to global oder Chinese etc.

It's quite tricky because as I checked with Mi9 you can swap regions hassle free with XiaoMiTool V2. Even with locked BL. Here, with F3 I haven't checked yet because... I'm a bit scared of getting a brick :/

With stock recovery you can easy upgrade (with correct FW ofc). Go to updater app in settings, tap at MIUI12 logo few times until some text appears. Then, 3 dots and choose local file with FW and go ahead with updating. I have done it to 12.5.6 (stable beta).

Apologise, I downloaded it from somewhere else where it shows as stable beta (whatever it is - they also said is stable but not fully send to users).

But yeah, go ahead with full recovery rom. 👍

Cheers, downloading rn.

I just click the 3 dots and all should be good? I'm locked with BL also.

Thanks in advance.

Click it and check if you have option like choose update package. If not, you must tap at miui_logo as long and you see 'additional update features are on' notification.
