Fix Redmi Note 12 Turbo Network Issue on Global/EU ROM

In this guide, we will show you various methods to fix the Redmi Note 12 Turbo network issue on Global/EU ROM. The Chinese edition of the Poco F5 beholds the same features and specs sheet as its global counterpart. However, there is just one differentiating factor- the presence of a few additional bloatware in the Chinese version. As a result of this, we have seen many instances in the past wherein users tend to cross-flash the Global firmware.

However, with the latest Note series, this process is giving quite a tough time to the end users. While they are able to flash the Global/EU ROM successfully on their Redmi Note 12 Turbo, but their device is then bugged with a slew of network-related issues. The cellular signal tends to fluctuate constantly, the USSD Code is not working, they are unable to receive or make calls/SMS most of the time, the signal randomly drops to zero, and the list goes on.
