Installing the MIUI Global International ROM in branded Xiaomi (Vodafone, WindTre, Tim) is easy, without waiting and without unlocking

Even if now we are concerned only with debranding the xiaomi, but in ancient times the "new Xiaomi" had to replace the Chinese ROM with our own one from MIUI Italy and it was as essential as it was easy: there was no block, no waiting, no need to change recovery. With the advent of international marketing, the situation was then reversed thanks to the official Global ROMs, beautiful and ready but a little more complicated to replace.

In more recent times the Xiaomi have also begun to be distributed by telephone operators (Vodafone, WindTre, Tim) with competitive prices and installments but who, as usual, made use of the right to use dedicated versions of the software called "branded". In the case of Xiaomi the only ones differences detected are some small bugs but above all delays of up to two months in updates.

Fortunately the good Francesco Tescari continued the development of his XiaoMiTools for changing the ROM that at the time of writing, through this guide, allows us to debrand the Xiaomi in half an hour, without waiting for the canonical seven days to unlock the bootloader, by installing the International Global ROM.

The ROM exchange operation is not without risk, we do not assume any responsibility in case of problems or damage. All data will be erased, so make a backup.

Sure. Return your phone to its original state as if it were taken out of the box for the first time.
Make a backup of photos and data and the social accounts that are there.

Regarding the warranty, what problems can there be? eventually you can then return to the original ROM (for example, in the case of a return or re-entry under warranty?)
