How to Install Xiaomi EU ROM on Poco F5 Pro/Redmi K60 [Video]

In this guide, we will show you the steps to install the Xiaomi EU ROM on your Poco F5 Pro/Redmi K60. The Poco series has been known to provide flagship-level specs at a price that wouldn’t burn a hole in your pockets and the newest addition to this series has carried forward the legacy in the right direction. But while it does manage to checkmark the prerequires on the specs sheet, it tends to fall a tad bit short on the OS level.

For many, the stock MIUI ecosystem provides a bloated usage experience with tons of unnecessary features baked into the OS. While you could flash an AOSP ROM, but that would mean leaving MIUI and stepping into the Pixel UI, which for many is quite barebone in functionality.

So what else could be done? Well, you could flash the Xiaomi EU ROM on your Poco F5 Pro/Redmi K60 which would give you a much more optimized, fast, and smooth usage experience, all while being inside the MIUI ecosystem itself. So without further ado, let’s get started.

How to Install Xiaomi EU ROM on Poco F5 Pro/Redmi K60

There exist two different methods to flash this ROM- via TWRP Recovery and using Fastboot Commands. We have listed both these methods below, you may refer to the one which is in sync with your requirement. Do note that both these methods will wipe off all the data on your device, so please take a complete device backup beforehand. Droidwin and its members wouldn’t be held responsible in case of a thermonuclear war, your alarm doesn’t wake you up, or if anything happens to your device and data by performing the below steps.

Install Xiaomi EU ROM on Poco F5 Pro/Redmi K60 via TWRP

STEP 1: Install Android SDK

install adb platform tools windows

First and foremost, you will have to install the Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC. This is the official ADB and Fastboot binary provided by Google and is the only recommended one. So download it and then extract it to any convenient location on your PC. Doing so will give you the platform-tools folder, which will be used throughout this guide to flash the Xiaomi EU ROM onto your device.

STEP 2: Enable USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking

Next up, you will also have to enable USB Debugging and OEM Unlocking on your device. The former will make your device recognizable by the PC in ADB mode. This will then allow you to boot your device to Fastboot Mode. On the other hand, OEM Unlocking is required to carry out the bootloader unlocking.
