MIUI 8 Global Rom is released for Mi Max 32GB model and i suppose most of us is using the china developer rom or unofficial global rom for MIUI 8.The thing is you can upgrade to official MIUI 8 Global Developer Rom without unlocking your bootloader.

If you do not wish to wait for your Mi account to get approval to unlock device, you can try this out. Basically it is to put the phone to EDL mode (Emergency download mode) and flash using miflash beta. This will change your whatever rom to the fastboot rom you have decided to flash.
Tested and working on the MIUI 8 Global Rom 6.7.5 on Mi Max 32GB.

==============================================
NOTE: TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. If you have mi account logged into your phone, make sure you logout your mi account from your Mi Max device.

UPDATED With Screenshots

1. Download the preferred official fastboot from for the XiaoMi Mi Max (Which I suppose most of us is gonna get the MIUI 8 Global ROM).

2. Download and install the official miphone aka miflash here. This will install the neccessary drivers for detection.

3. Download and install the miflash beta here. This will be used for flashing the fastboot rom. The installer will installed as XiaoMiFlash

4. Unzip the fastboot rom

5. Run the XiaoMiFlash as administrator. Click on select and point it to the root folder of the unzipped fastboot rom. e.g. C:\fastboot_rom_folder_name. After that on the bottom right, check on "clean all" options.

6. On your phone, get to developer mode to enable USB debugging. This step might not be necessary though, but before my phone gotten into boot loop after flashing from Mi PC suite, i did enable.

7. Turn off your phone. Press and hold vol+, vol- and power button to get to EDL mode. Note that the screen will not show anything, you will know it has power on as it will have vibration upon bootup.

8. Connect phone to PC, wait for it to detect and install the necessary drivers. Refresh on XiaoMiFlash and your phone should show up, e.g. COM1. If it does not show up, try refreshing a few times, else disconnect and reconnect your phone.

9. Click on flash and wait. This part a bit scary, you can only see the progress on your computer as the phone screen won't show anything!!

10. After success, unplug and reboot your phone by holding on to the power button. The phone will be setting up itself to the new rom. After which, enjoy the newly flash rom.

That's all for this! Hope this can help you :)

GR33dyBlackie To add-on. Please note there is differences between the Mi Max 32GB (HYDROGEN) and Mi Max 64/128GB (HELIUM). Please download the correct fastboot ROM images.  16:11, Aug-16-2016

Same error again. Any idea what is the issue?

You have to extract the downloaded rom 2 times, first extract with WinRAR and you will get a file with long name ended with numbers and letters like xxx.0_global_55a4896b43, then extract this file again with 7ZIP and you will get a folder contains image file and other necessary file for flashing.
