It doesnt work mate,
xiaomi business model isnt about selling phone/service, its targeted ads, and they treat their sheer number of users as cash cows.

altho you have disabled recommendation,
whenever you update miui / rebooted your phone
the very first time you open mi video, mi music, mi file manager,etc it will still shows FULL SCREEN ADS!

thats why i flashed it to miui eu rom.
you might want to try lineage OS too...
