Go to reply no.
Dear Mi Fans,

Here's something VERY important before you flash or update the ROM.

1. Xiaomi Phones manufactured for Chinese market are not able to run MIUI Global ROM.
2. Xiaomi Phones manufactured for Global markets are not able to run MIUI China ROM.

We highly recommend you to buy Xiaomi Phones via official or authorized sales channels and double check the system infomation before flashing or updating.

Thank you for understanding.

After a lot of reading work, and knowing a bit of the subject, I believe this is a false positive...
The OP means not exactly that.

Flashing global ROM's on a chinese version is not allowed for a long time. If you unlock your bootloader, you can flash it... So, that's it.

You could read something about "Why does Xiaomi require long bootloader unlock wait times, EDL authorization, and Anti-Rollback Protection" in a very good article, in XDA forum here:

https://www.xda-developers.com/xiaomi-anti-rollback-protection-brick-phone/ (Thanks Ed)

So, nothing new in this thread.
It could even be closed...

This warning comes much too late. Xiaomi must realize that there are international buyers that has no acces to official Mi stores

This announcement caused a variety of reactions, because of the lack of detailed explanations ... When did this policy begin? Which devices are affected by this policy... all or only new released devices? What will happen if we do flashing from Global ROM to China ROM or vice versa?
All of this started from Xiaomi being too slow to release its products outside of China, so many Mi fans bought the devices through online shops, which imported directly from China. Even in my country I cannot buy Mi flagship series (other than Mi A1 and Pocophone) in Mi Store or authorized distributors. To be honest, I have no problem using Global Rom or China Rom, but for most users they prefer to use native / local languages, because they are not used to or proficient in using English.
Consider this policy wiser, because Xiaomi will lose a lot of hard-line Mi fans. I always hope the best ..

Esto que hace xiaomi es ilegal y algun dia lo pagaran. Si tu vendes un producto, deja de ser tu producto y no puedes controlarlo, o hacer que falle por que el cliente lo quiera en otro idioma. Si no quereis que se comercialice con vuestros productos, dejar de vender.  Cuando el numero de afectados sea considerable y llegue a manos de la comunidad europea, pagaran por esta politica anticlientes. Mas vale que en vez de copiar funciones de otras marcas, aprendais un poco de ellas estandarizando precios y dando soporte multilenguaje. Nunca vais a conseguir canalizar vuestras ventas a los canales oficiales, los clientes no se pueden obligar o coaccionar, lo unico que vais a conseguir es perder a los clientes, los mismos que dieron renombre a vuestra marca. Ahora xiaomi ha perdido lo que la diferenciaba del resto, se esta convirtiendo en basura. Y esto es una estadistica de la opinion del 75 % de sus clientes. Bye bye XIAOMI

I took my 3 rd xiaomi this year in China. Before that I had Redmi Pro and Mi6 and there was no problem with it. Now I have Mix2S with Global ROM and unlocked bootloader with no possibility to lock it back. If the problem will not be solved I will never take a deal with Xiaomi anymore, unfortunately.

Interesting... This threat gives some few turns around the world...
However, there's nothing new here.

Like I post here:
http://en.miui.com/forum.php?mod ... 831680&pid=30336811

This subject posted like it is, may give many other intention, and confusion...
To change original to global, must unlock... Point. And that's it... Nothing new... a long time.
Please close this...
BTW, China and global ROM are available for download and install in this oficial site, in the Download section... What for ???
And Unlock tool in available too... For no use???
