MIR4A step-by-step

Hello! I'm a complete noob, I've read a few posts, but I'm still confused.

The Quick Start Guide instructions say "Follow the device-specific instructions of your manufacturer's user guide..."
However, now Xiaomi Mi Router 4A officially supports 21.02, and the old installation topic has become irrelevant.

There have probably already been many similar topics on other devices, I hate to take up your time, but I'm afraid of breaking the router.
Do I need to update the original Xiaomi firmware to the latest version before the installation process?
For the first-time installation I just need to import the kernel.bin file using the web interface? Is it really that easy?

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
