Hi, I have been trying, unsuccessfully to Flash my dx.com bought Mi Note LTE. I have tried to find info on this on the device pages on the Xiaomi website but for some reason, it's not there  (Note Pro is listed but my model is Note LTE Dual sim) below is a screenshot of my phone details.

because my phone was shipped with a China Rom ,I don't know if that is causing the problem. I tried yesterday to download the global Rom for the Redmi note 4g by using the recovery method , wiped all data, changed the Rom to update.zip. put Rom in root folder but it didn't work. I want to do this legally, not by downloading twrp and there has to be a way of doing this without unlocking the bootloader and using a flash recovery. some solid advice would help please. thanks.

First of all...
Mi Note or Mi Note LTE dual sim are the same, no other models apart Mi Note Pro (different hardware), so this is the link of global for Mi Note http://en.miui.com/download-262.html
Second thing... In the future, don't try to use rom made for other phones, you were lucky to not brick your device.
Third... Mi Note doesn't have the bootloader locked.
Fourth... Your pre-installed Rom isn't original (it's one customized from seller) and you can flash the original only through Mi Flash.

Excellent, thanks Draconian for the sound advice. I didn't realise that the Rom shipped with my phone was custom. would have liked the option to be able to receive OTA upgrades. could you please advise when looking for a Rom to Flash what exact model do I look for when searching for a rom.

Hi Draconian, No joy as of yet. I tried a few methods, using the link that you sent for the Rom, I downloaded it and put the Rom in the root folder and tried the updater app, browsed to rom, and clicked on it. it then reported on the app. " there has been an error, do you wish to report it". I then tried to change the name of the Rom to update.zip. this had the same effect. I then tried to put the phone into recovery mode and tried to update this way. no success. I would like to try and do a flashboot install but as I may have used the wrong image before could someone point me to the correct flashboot global Rom for Redmi note 4G LTE Dual sim. it is very confusing trying to figure out the correct rom for this handset as there are so many handsets that are called note. A bit of direction would be appreciated.

I would highly suggest using fastboot to flash the rom to give the phone a "clean slate".
So do you have a Redmi Note 4G or the Xiaomi Note Lte?

According to your screenshot you have the MI Note not the REDMI Note 4G, why do you insist to search Redmi Note 4g rom? There are various "note" but with different names (in the list the full names are specified, not only "note, note, note") and you must search your MI note.

This is the link of fastboot MI NOTE global rom http://update.miui.com/updates/v1/fullromdownload.php?d=virgo_global&b=F&r=global&n=

This is the link of Mi flash http://en.miui.com/thread-281979-1-1.html for flashing the fastboot Rom.

When you flash, check "clean all" option to the bottom of Mi flash window

to avoid issue , cause your pre-installed Rom isn't original.
