You are free to try any version of your choice, but it is recommended to try the newer builds only and of your region. To download the firmware, you may use the official MIUI Forum.

Furthermore, if you wish to understand the Xiaomi Fastboot firmware version, you may refer to our comprehensive guide on What is MIUI Fastboot ROM for Xiaomi, Mi, Redmi, Poco Devices. Or here’s the instruction in short,

- To begin with, you will have to boot your device to the Fastboot Mode. The first step for that requires you to power it off.
- If you cannot do so (due to your device being stuck in a bootloop) then the only option left is to let the entire battery drain out (remember the good old days when we could easily remove the battery!).
- Once your device has turned off, press and hold the Volume Down and Power buttons for a few seconds. This will boot your device to Fastboot Mode.
STEP 5: Unbrick Xiaomi 13 Pro via Fastboot Commands
- Head over to the platform tools folder, type in CMD in the address bar, and hit Enter. This will launch the Command Prompt.
- Now type in the below commands, one at a time, in this CMD window [the first command will reset your device, it is compulsory].
- Moreover, if you get any error after executing any of these commands, then don’t leave the process mid-way.
- Rather continue executing the rest of the commands and then check the results.
