Hello people!

I have a Mi 8, GLOBAL version and I want to flash onto it the EU stable ROM. My question is if I can safely relock the bootloader after flashing.
Also is there any method for flashing without twrp?

Thank you!

There isn't an official EU ROM for Mi 8. I suppose you are asking about xiaomi.eu, which is a custom ROM based on China ROM. You may head over to https://xiaomi.eu/community/ for further assistance. All instructions and downloads will be available there.

Having said that, to ask your question - you cannot re-lock the bootloader after flashing xiaomi.eu since it's a custom ROM and require TWRP to flash it, which ofcourse requires an unlocked bootloader. Flashing via TWRP is the only method. It doesn't work with stock recovery since it's a custom ROM.

Cheers! :-)

Thank you for your detailed answer! Things are pretty clear now.
