XiaoMiTool is the latest stock firmware flashing tool developed specifically for Xiaomi devices. Before this program, the MiFlash Tool was the only official tool to flash the MIUI ROMS. However now, even the Xiaomi developers are implementing the XiaoMiTool. This is because it will let you install all sorts of stock firmware including Global, China, Stable, and Developer ROMS without Unlocking Bootloader on all of the available Xiaomi devices.
This tool comes in handy when your device has a fake ROM installed from a fake seller online. Or simply if your device won’t accept the official MiFlashTool. XiaoMiTool will also automatically install stock recovery. It will perform a heuristic check and list the information of different modules.
Moreover, if you are flashing the unofficial firmware from xiaomi.eu, then it will run the MiFlashUnlock to unlock the bootloader, then it will install twrp recovery and finally the ROM. So it is an all in one tool. Thanks to franztesca, for making this possible.
