Beyond the MIUI Global ROM and China ROM, there are other variants targeted at specific regions. An example of this is the European ROM or EEA, an adaptation to European regulations and rules that we want to talk to you about today.
When Xiaomi releases a new Global update, this is usually done for MIUI Global ROM and also for the European ROM. That is where the doubt of many of you appears, especially in the face of the manual update of your Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO.
But how are they different? do not worry about it. Next we will explain the main differences between the MIUI Global and European ROM, as well as the process to know which of these two variants you have installed on your smartphone.
Differences of the Global and European ROM and how to know which one you have installed
While the MIUI Global ROM is the one that is released worldwide, that is, regardless of the country to which it is destined, the Global ROM is the one with which all Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO devices are marketed in Europe.
Broadly speaking, the MIUI European or EEA ROM differs from the Global ROM in that this has been adapted to the standards and regulations required by the European Union, such as volume limitation or even the ability to record calls.
In this way we can say that The MIUI Global ROM is somewhat more complete than the European, getting rid of any limitations and generally, being developed before that destined for European countries. Which one do you have installed on your Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO? very easy, following these steps you will know it in a simple way:
- Go to Settings > About phone
- Once inside we will have to go to the section “MIUI Version“
Once we have located the version of MIUI we should look at the alphabetical part of the version, for example “RKBEUXM“. The first letters of this mean the version of Android, in this case Android 11, the second and the third the device in question (Xiaomi Mi 11), while the fourth and fifth will indicate the type of ROM, in this case “EU” of European”. To distinguish the type of ROM, there are the following nomenclatures:
- EU: European
- NC: China
- UK: Russian
- ID: Indonesian
- MX: Mexico
- IN: India
In this way, if our version of MIUI is the RKBEUXM we could say that it is a European ROM, while if it were RKBMIXM, it would be a MIUI Global ROM.
