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.


MIUI Team

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.

wait a second....

Xiaomi is losing tons of money cause people outside china is keeping buying phones from reseller.
I'm form italy and here, in Italy, when xiaomi opened the first time I had to see crazy prices for just a redminote 5, mi mix 2 was sold like for double price I bought it in that period from a chinese reseller. why should I spend those money for a device that doesn't worth those? Nice ofc I prefer to spen 350 instead of 600.

But you know, now xiaomi is right to put some anti rollback on phones cause the loss of money. those 250 euros could be in xiaomi's wallet and they will not. you are right but can't do somenthing like this, you just abbandoned thousands of people who bought xiaomi from a reseller cause they love xiaomi but they can't afford it in they own countries.

4/5 years ago xiaomi was nothing in the world, it was nothing in china, but I seriously hope that xiaomi will remember that it is what it is now thcks to international customers and resellers. Chinese people prefer apple, huawei and oppo instead of its devices. xiaomi is the third in smartphone market just for the ones like me trusted in an unknown chinese brand with low prices but good smartphones.

this is the way they thank us for our trust, for our money. they close the doors to be the really first customer friendly company in the wolrd in smartphone field and they just want to be like the other ones, just a company that does money, not dreams like some months ago.

I really loved you, I was buying you products, the last one just 2 weeks ago, but now I have serious difficulties to trust you again.

the good old times are ended
