Export lowest is $288 (4/64)

???
I read "can"
1. need to know if its ARB (antirollback))
2. bootloader unlock
3. global rom (flash0
Cannot!

To change from China rom to Global rom!

Once must use the a Fastboot rom of a Global rom.

Those "can" that you read, likely from XDA was using an "alternative" method which was using a Recovery rom and it will bring you more headache in the future!

My export set got OTA update notification to 9.6.6.0.
I pressed and got diverted to Version Update page. Then I press check for updates, no updates.
Pressed download update package. Something Is downloading, patched it, reboot now.
Still 9.6.4.0.

Please advise.

Off-topic : Just saw on apple/sg. Damn those prices.
iPhone XS
iPhone XS Max
iPhone XR
Which is best to flip to xiaomi? XD
Get the 9.6.6.0 Recovery file from here!

Copy to your phone.

> Updater > Choose update package > Point to the 9.6.6.0 Recovery file location and press Update!

Report back the result, please!

Lovemei case is awesome but way too bulky..


Well, beware the case block the microphone holes. So end up others cannot hear you when u use the phone to call.

Thanks. But I think there are 2 rows of holes there at bottom.

I double check again. It downloads the 9.6.4.0 package instead of the 9.6.6.0 package. No wonder patch already still 9.6.4.0

Lowest for local 1 year warranty is $380 now?

Export lowest is $288 (4/64)
I am considering between 64gb Black or 128gb Blue. Official global rom only.
Pocophone only got $50 difference for 64gb upsize, excluding 2gb ram.

What do you mean?
To change from China rom to Global rom, must use Fastboot rom of a Global rom? So meaning all exports set from China are likely like mine stuck at 9.6.4.0?
What is the difference between XDA Recovery rom and the link you sent below?


Get the 9.6.6.0 Recovery file from here!

Copy to your phone.

> Updater > Choose update package > Point to the 9.6.6.0 Recovery file location and press Update!

Anyone updated from 9.6.4.0 to 9.6.6.0 manually because it can't download automatically? I think I'll test it another day. Later problematic, cannot use for work during weekends = gameover.

Hope MIUI 10 come to MM3 soon. Officially.

Same as me. Use the link given below by Kelvin.
Test already then reply back here.

I seen users reporting 9.6.6.0 is an official Global Beta rom but problematic. That's why if u no need the latest, not facing any issues = no update. Wait till 2019.

Unless they have fixed it, when you call, the other party can't hear you clearly. Used to use lovemei case (Xperia Compact, V20, Mi Max, Mi Max 2) and all had the same problem. BTW, the case itself is very heavy. With Mi Max 3, expect to be carrying a 500g brick.

Let's be clear.

If you have an export China set with a "fake rom" 9.6.4.0 (OEDMIFD). You can download the Global 9.6.6.0 Recovery rom. Copy to your phone and update it manually via the Updater. I presumed that you know how to do that.

If you have an export China set with official China rom. Then, you must wait for a Global Fastboot rom then use miflash to flash to a Global rom when it is available at a later date.
