After flashing a new rum, my information was NOT deleted

Postby samiro » 26 Mar 2017, 07:37

Hello everyone This is my first post in the forum. i really like it.
I have a somewhat strange question, six months ago I flashed a new ROM to my MI4C device, (V8.0.5.0.LXKCNDG.)
and today i flashed the (globeROM_v8_libra_V8.2.1.0.LXKCNDL)
--
I did not do all the steps of flashing TWRP and FASTBOOT etc, because I've done them before, I just power on the phone with VOL + pressed and installed the new rom
--

After all done I did WIPE, then restart and everything worked just fine,
But when the device turned on, I saw that all my apps still exist and all my preferences were saved, it's like I've updated and not flashed a new ROM

How can it be?
I see on the device that it is version V8.2.1.0
But the Android version is 5.1.1 and not 7 as i thought (maybe i am wrong)

Am I doing everything right? Did I miss something, or it is working as it supposed to ?

thank you all.

Please read our FAQ ...
When wiping data - always do it BEFORE flashing the ROM.

Send logfile please, otherwise I cannot tell what happened.

i am new so i dont know where is the logs.
i read the FAQ - i saw " It is recommended to wipe /data before installation when you install globeROM the first time. "
but its not my first time. this is the secound time i flash from mi-globe.com

but Do you advise me to repeat the process or can I use it this way?

Is this why it remains on Android 5?
