WARRIORS, 27 Dec 2016Hello tauqr Thank you for your long positive response,now i have understand whole things ,see... moreI used TWERP method back in the day when I had OnePlus one and I wanted to install newly launched oxygen OS, but I went back to CyanogenMod after only few days. After that whenever I wanted to flash my phone, I needed to look for TWERP instructions which were quite easy. Just put ROM files on phone or sideload via PC using ADB, clear delvik cache, internal files if you want after the flash. But nowadays I really like the fastboot method, mainly because I don't want to install TWERP recovery software which replaces system default recovery software. I had difficulty removing the TWERP recovery software and to do so I had to flash via fastboot method. Since then I am using fastboot method.
You can go for either method if you are sure you can do it.

But as you told me and your answer gave me some idea and hope so i have decide to unlock the device (Unlock or Locking part is not a concern for me but the Process and difficulty during this part is ) Using ADB to install TWRP or Using TWRP to flash the xiaomi.eu ROMs and rooting your device by flashing SuperSU . Tell me which method is simple and stable For long time use i mean as have heard 1st quarter 2017 It may be possible to get Global ROM, Which method is best ? simply Fashboot Using using MiFlash or Using ADB to install TWRP Or Using TWRP to flash the xiaomi.eu ROMs ?
WARRIORS, 27 Dec 2016Thank you Tauqr for your long positive response ,really appreciated for your valuable inputs .... moreIf you choose fastboot method, you can choose to lock the bootloader after the flash by just ticking a check box . Unlocking is easy as you can get the permission within a day if you can justify the reason. Going to official ROM from un official is a valid enough reason.
WARRIORS, 27 Dec 2016Thank you Tauqr for your long positive response ,really appreciated for your valuable inputs .... moreHi warrior,
Since you are on 126.96.36.199.0 from AliExpress, you are on completely different channel of ROM and I doubt AliExpress will release any updates on that channel.
For a device to receive official updates it must be on the official channel. The official ROM channel releases updates. Here channel term is used for analogy. I suggest you install latest official ROM from MIUI forum following instructions given there for corresponding method you want to choose. Since you want to go to official from un official, I recommend fastboot method as it will do a clean install. Also, I haven't personally found any problem with AliExpress ROM or find it risky..But if you can help it why not go for official.

I have Bought MI5S from AliExpress came with 188.8.131.52.0 global ROM version which was custom ROM from AliExpress.so is it safe to use this version (184.108.40.206.0)for security or malware related issues ?? In the update section its showing no update available but as you know official MIUI has version like 220.127.116.11 (Latest ) .so will i ever get update ?? .whats your suggestion should i unlock it and Flashing ROM via fastboot method ? See the problem is There is lot of uncertain issues over Unlocking device .so From 18.104.22.168.0 global ROM version to latest Global Rom will i ever get update ???

Also, a very detailed step by step instruction manual is available at the download section for each ROM flash method.
System Updates are usually small in size where you put them in a particular folder on phone, point to it and restart. Done!
Recovery update is another popular method where you install a recovery software, either a third party like TWERP or use system's own recovery software. With this method you can choose to only flash the OS partition and save your data. Your files and media will be safe.
Fastboot method is used when you want a clean install of a ROM. This can erase everything and help install other compatible ROMs.
Moreover if you don't know how to begin, you should follow the instructions as there are so many available on MIUI forum.
My personal suggestions: if you want to install an official MIUI from fake/preinstalled custom ROM from online resellers choose the fastboot method.
Also, easy way to tell fakes from original is : official MIUI has version like 126.96.36.199 while unofficial/fake have 188.8.131.52.0. Notice the number of dots in its ROM version. Also, you can always search for latest version at official site. Current latest version is 184.108.40.206 so obviously any ROM starting 8.1.x.x is fake/custom. There are risks of using such ROMs as they might have malware inbuilt to steal private data.
My personal MI5S bought from AliExpress came with 220.127.116.11.0 global ROM version which was custom ROM from AliExpress.
Hope this answers some of your questions.
