thank you for your information... quick question? I just purchased my note 7pro about a month ago and received a Chinese version... I even just got the new MIUI 11 update! but it is also in Chinese! I have spent the past month peeing my case with only sorry letters... only option they allow is to return it (at my cost) for a full refund... after many threats I got them to say send us a receipt of shipping costs and if there are no Cutoms fees they will pay for "gift" shipping... which means it will be months and I may get charged custom fees!!! my 2 part question is, 1. if I flash it does that void anything 2. what would you do in my situation? thank you for any input

After unlock bootloader, and installing Global ROM DONT LOCK BOOTLOADER

You can flash Global ROM on such device, but dont lock bootloader!!!

I am reading this article on the recommendation of Happybuddhist.  A miracle happened. I flashed china rom k20 on my 9t and unknowingly locked the bootloader. My phone s bootloader is locked and got away from bricking.

You mean, now MI 9T with china stable and locked bootloader working fine!?
