Have a Look in the Note 5 SubForum, there are a few Threads and maybe Solutions about it !

Thanks for the reply @John_Doe,

i did find few answers, but that doesn't cover all my queries.  Can you/ some one help me with the below query -

Does ROM flashing clear device memory i.e. Pictures, Musics, Apps & User Data; Or is there any way i can recover my data from Redmi note 5 AI mobile (in its current state showing: "This MIUI version can't be installed on this device" error message) ?

i'm afraid from the position you are in all data will be lost .
    You may read about data recovery software tools that claim miracles of restore after wiping all data .
      Out of curiosity i tried to see fairly recently what was recoverable after system wipe and it was very minimal .

Thanks for the response @Sarge7,

i'll flash the latest GLOBAL ROM (post flashing with Chinese ROM, and unlocking boot loader), then will try my luck with the recovery softwares.
Have a nice day!

Redmi Note 5 AI Chinese (running Global ROM) - This MIUI version can't be instal

try this rom

Hi @Rezha Illa Rusla,

Yes, i did mention the same in my previous post. But my Redmi Note 5 AI doesn't allow me to flash it with the latest Chinese stable or Dev/Beta ROM's. The Mi Flash Pro tool flashes the error message "Cannot flash older version of ROM". Also i tried to flash the latest Global Dev ROM, but that did not help, and i still saw the error message "This MIUI version cannot be installed on this device"

FYI, the Redmi Note 5 AI official China Stable and Beta/ Developer ROM can be found here -
And the Global versions here - (Note: you can select the russia version by selecting the menu link - Redmi Note 5 Russia)

I didn't want to wait for more than a month just to flash the newer china ROM on my phone (and later to go back to older global ROM). I took the step to open my phone back cover and with Qualcomm EDL approach, i was successfully able to install the older version of global ROM, you can find the reference here - (BIG THANKS TO KILLERENGEL). Now i am waiting for permissions (167 hours to go) to unlock the boot loader of the phone, so that i don't have to go through this hiccup later.

Thanks everyone
