Users who didn't like MIUI 10 Global Beta found a nasty surprise when they tried to reinstall the latest MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM: their phones have been bricked! This wasn't the type of brick you could fix by restoring a TWRP backup, flashing a new ROM, or using MiFlash to restore a factory image.
