"Flashing a newer version of MIUI ROM doesn’t need to wipe data, but flashing an older one does."

HOW about if it is exactly the same version. if you ask why i flash the same version, i would do it to "reinstall" my current messed up ROM

It's not requested, but you'd better wipe data.

"STEP 1 - Download the latest MIUI ROM   Download Now": if I follow this procedure, shall I download the chinese version or the english version? I am asking it because I need the Italian language and -for this purpose - I download the multilanguage version of MIUI from here:
http://xiaomi.eu/community/forums/miui-weekly-rom-releases.103/
So I suppose that your procedure is only for those using tha chinese version or the english one. Right?
Let me know: I am not so literate on smartphones so please forgive my silly questions.
Grazie
corrado

if you open the multilanguage link, for example this http://xiaomi.eu/community/threads/3-11-29.22929/
you will be provided with 2 version. english and multilanguage. the english version is just the same version as the link provided in this thread. the difference is, you can select wether it is stable version or it is developer version (for root user). but anyway, both are in english. so if you want an italian, you can go to the multilanguage forum as your provided link
