Convert RedMagic 3 to Global ROM from Chinese ROM

Before we list out the steps to do so, make sure to follow all the below-mentioned points in the requirements section. Only after that, you should try flashing the Global ROM.


Before we begin with this procedure, I would strongly recommend you to create a backup of your device storage and all your files stored on your device. Moreover, it is advised to follow the steps mentioned in this post very carefully to avoid permanent damage or to brick your device.

  1. First of all, make a backup of your Nubia RedMagic 3. This is because the manual installation of the Global ROM requires a complete wipe of your device. We will be doing so because most of the apps are built-in for the Chinese ROM and won’t be compatible when you flash the Global ROM.
  2. Make sure that your device is at least 50% charged, in order to avoid any sudden shutdown during the process.
  3. Finally, download the software build for your device depending on your region from here: Europe and Asia version | North America version

Now follow the below instructions to convert Nubia RedMagic 3 from Chinese ROM to the Global ROM.

Installing the Global ROM

Transfer the downloaded ROM file to the root of your device. By root we mean just inside the internal storage where all the other folders are present. Make sure you don’t put the ROM file inside any folder. Now follow the below steps:
