Regions on Xiaomi devices


Introduction
For the presence of regions in the firmware section is responsibleCust At the root of the entire system. On older models (such as Mi3, Mi4) regions are located in the section data, and sewn together with userdata.img.

Established region can relate to some of the features embedded in the firmware. For example, in one region, there is the function when changing to another, it disappears. Or adjust the sound, on some louder, others softer.

Also present there (cust \ app \ customized) some pre-installed applications for a particular region. And if you set such as "India", then the customization of the application prescribed in the settings of the region.

The regions themselves are incust \ cust \ **
** - the folder to a specific region.

The system is in the range of:Settings - Advanced Settings - Region
I'm trying to go to the section of the region, but throws me back
So this section is empty. Accordingly, it is necessary to flash image cust.img . It is located in the archive with the firmware for fastboot. The firmware for rekaveri he is absent. Sewn on the team:
fastboot flash cust cust.img

Or installed through TWRP, if custom rekaveri supports this section.
Flies region. What to do? Or how to change manually.
At first, a few words. When configuring the system, the exposed region is written to the filecust_variant along the way \ Data \ miui \ . Sometimes even the same file exists in the most cust folder, it should not be there, this is pure crutch!
If flies region, but the folders in place, you can do the following:
  • In foldercust remove cust_variant
  • In folderdata \ miui open cust_variant If for example there is written cn , Then change to your!
I have no points Region
In localized firmware authors tend to hide this item and the presence of the regions it does not affect . You can get there if the search type Region . Or activate it by not challenging Diversifies system application "Settings". Instruction is in the theme of manual modifications MIUI.

    Preferably through a computer, and then throw in a phone \ memory card. It is also a direct link with the phone. If you want to download the full three points, after the end of the download immediately reboot in rekaveri, otherwise the firmware will start to unpack and install TWRP through you'll get an error.

  • Installing the firmware archive.
  • After updating the firmware, you will need to patch your kernel, please protect the patch or to obtain Root privileges to run the system and tvrp remained in place (on RN5 if not patched, the system will still boot, but rekaveri will drain).

Mini F.A.Q.

What is the ARB (Anti-RollBack)?
ARB - the so-called mechanism antiotkata concerning bootloader version, and introduced primarily for safety.
When you upgrade the boot loader, you can not install the firmware with the boot loader version below.But in one loader can be put Luba firmware, though on the increase, at least for a fall! downgrade concerns only version of ARB, and no firmware !

Check your bootloader status with the command:
fastboot getvar anti

Anti3 - you have an older version of the boot loader
Anti4 - an updated bootloader with antiotkatom

On some models (e.g. 6 Redmi Pro) verified
fastboot getvar all
string (bootloader) rollback ver:X

If in the product (s) response (s) missing index (figure) loader, then your model is not concerned!
What threatens to downgrade the bootloader?
"Well," such a brick. : Comando:
Which can be restored only through the EDL mode, using an authorized account who has permission to re-flash in this mode! On some models, there are detours account!


boot modes
Recovery
  • On the unit is turned off:to clampGr + and Nutrition . After the appearance of the logo, the power button can be released;
  • From the "Update" application:three points - Reboot into Recovery ;
  • If set to an extended restart menu: selectRecovery

Fastboot
  • On the unit is turned off:to clampGr- and Nutrition ;
  • Of of a custom rekaveri (TWRP):Reboot - Loader ;
  • If set to an extended restart menu: selectFastboot



Unlocking and locking the bootloader
Does data reset when you unlock?
Yes, the new models the data is reset as the program and will alert a few times!
If such notice is not, therefore, will not be reset.
How much is counter to unlock?
7 days or 168 hours.
Threw hours when trying to unlock
If reserved 7 days have passed, but when you try to unlock the program writes that "wait" for another 100, 200, 300, etc. hours, just try older versions MiUnlock, the minimum version 3.3.418.37
If the Unlock the bootloader, whether coming updates?
Will. The state of the loader does not affect the OTA!
Is it possible to lock the bootloader on a global firmware if the device is the Chinese version?
Limitations on models describedhere.


Firmware
What are the types of firmware
Firmware are divided into formal and informal (localized):

Official:

  • China - China Stable (With index " CN ") & China Developer (Beta) ;
  • Global - Global stable (With index " MI ") & Global Developer (Beta) ;
  • Russia - firmware with index Ru ", based Global stable ;
  • EEA - firmware with index EU "
  • India - firmware with index IN "
Localized:
  • Firmware, usually on the basis of Chinese, translated and with the addition of various kinds of modifications;

Numbering firmware:
  • Stable - from 4 numbers example: 9.6.3.0 (where the first number indicates the version shell MIUI)
  • Weekly - 3-numbers: 8.8.30 e.g. (Year - Month - Number of released EEPROM)
What iOS device will come?
Important for the Chinese version of the device.
Firmware may be different, depending probably on the "honesty" of the seller.
Official:
  • Chinese official firmware.
  • Global official firmware, with unlocked loader, which confirms the verification through fastboot. Everything looks quite official!

The so-called "Flops":
  • Global firmware, updated over the air. In the "Status of the boot loader" unlocked, locked in fact! On this firmware can not be unlocked bootloader . Way - is to sew through an EDL, the Chinese official, together with section Persist .
  • Global firmware, updated over the air. In the "Status of the boot loader" blocked, blocked in fact! On such an insertion is possible to unlock the bootloader.
  • Global firmware , The designation of the version which consists of 5 digits, for example: 9.5.17.0.0 . by air NOT updated, just because of these designations. "Bootloader Status" can be as in the previous "flip-flops", respectively, and the same developments.
Which firmware can be placed according to the version of the device?
on unlocked any loader without lowering the loader version.
Onblockedthere are limitations:
Chinese version - Of the Chinese firmware
Global version - Global and Chinese of-the firmware (as tested on RN5 and Mi8)
Some had to upgrade, but I do not. What's wrong?
After releasing an update, it does not come to all, and selectively. This is for testing. As they are, if not found critical bugs, the firmware waits for release, placement in the pages of downloads. And then she'll be available to everyone at the PTA. Just wait. Well, or download already lined with whom a file and then restore themselves.
How best to ask across the fastboot or Miflash?
Fastboot (fastbut) - this mode boot device, and not rewriting method. Accordingly wrong to think, what is the difference between installing the firmware through fastbut and miflesh.

That's right, it's a console / command line (someone says adb) and miflesh. After all, here and there, this mode is applied.

What is the difference between the command line and miflesh?
In fact nothing, both of these methods use the same bat files. Unless miflesh has a graphical interface on which way one way or another need some resources and libraries.
What method can be sewn with a locked bootloader?
Can:
  • Built-in program "Update" (three points). Moving only within one location official firmware. Eg Stable "MI" in the Developer, and vice versa. But as a rule between the latest firmware!
  • After a test point and EDL
Do not:
  • Through Fastboot (this is only for an unlocked bootloader)
How to activate the menu "For Developers"?
Go to Settings - About phone and tap on the "MIUI version" a few times. The partition appears in the Advanced settings.
If the Chinese version of the device firmware to flash the global, whether coming updates?
Yes, of course it will be. A version for PTA is not affected. As well as the state of the loader!
How to flash through firmware update? (three dots)
Download the archive with the official firmware for Recovery \ System, throw your phone or on a memory card, the application "Update", click the "three dots" ->Select the firmware file and specify the path to the file. The transition from stable to developerskuyu (weekly) and going back to the data reset!
