You can Change Region On MIUI 11 easily with this tutorial. To change region in MIUI 11 you just need to flash a simple file from TWRP or whichever recovery you have installed on your device.
What’s the need to Change Region?
Just like I said I have Poco F1 in which I was using custom ROMs. But today I flashed the MIUI Global based on Android 10 and there was no face lock option available in the security settings. I need that face lock option cause to rely on that too much and obviously Poco has exclusive IR sensor for that special purpose and that’s the reason I came back from custom ROM’s based on Android 10 to stock ROM. Cause on custom ROM the face lock is totally removed from the AOSP base itself. I searched lots of solutions most of them was editing a build. prop file but that didn’t work out. Lastly, I tried flashing the region fix file and it worked.
Another reason for region change sometimes updates (OTA updates) from official MIUI comes early for some specific regions. If you seriously don’t have any patience then you can change the region to the one which update is received and you can get that update too.
