How to Install Xiaomi.eu ROM on Redmi Note 5
These are some essential steps required before flashing a custom ROM. You can skip it if you have already installed a custom Recovery (TWRP, RWRP, OFRP, or PBRP).
Step 1. Disable Windows Driver Signature Enforcement on your computer. This is necessary to get the Xiaomi USB driver installed properly.
Step 2. Download Mi Flash Tool and install it on your computer.
Step 3. Download ADB-Fastboot Driver and install it on your computer.
Step 4. Follow this procedure to unlock your phone bootloader.
Step 5. Follow these steps to flash Orange Fox TWRP on Redmi Note 5 phone. Follow until steps 15 only. Once done flashing OFRP, reboot to system.
At this stage, you should already have Orange Fox Recovery Project installed on your phone. The custom recovery used is not limited to OFRP, you can use the official TWRP, Red Wolf TWRP, Pitch Black TWRP, and so on.
Step 6. Download Xiaom.eu Multilingual ROM for Whyred into your computer.
Step 7. Assuming your phone is still connected to your computer, now copy the downloaded ZIP files to your phone (e.g:xiaomi.eu_multi_HMNote5Pro_9.2.21_v10-8.1.zip). We recommend you to put it in the root directory (means: not inside any folders).
Step 8. Now disconnect your phone from the computer.
Step 9. Now turn off your phone completely. Once it’s off, press the Powerbutton and Volume Up button simultaneously until it reboots into Recovery.
Step 10. Now you need to wipe the /data partitions. This is necessary to remove apps/settings that might be incompatible with the new ROM.
Step 11. Do not forget to do the “Swipe to wipe” action. Once done, go back to the main menu.
Step 12. Tap the “Install” button in the main menu.
Step 13. Find and select Xiaomi.eu MIUI 10 ROM. Tap on the file name to select it.
Step 14. Next, do the “Swipe to install” action. In other recovery it usually says “Swipe to flash“.
Step 15. Sit tight and wait for the newly installed Xiaomi.EU ROM sets itself up. Usually, it takes long time for the initial booting. That’s normal.
Once done, go set up the Google Account.
Voila! You have been successfully installed Xiaomi.EU ROM on your Redmi Note 5.
That’s it. You can just enjoy the ROM as it is or flash Magisk to root it.
