Two days back, we received the weekly MIUI 9 update ‘MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 7.12.7‘. However, the update was delayed for some unknown reasons. Today, the developers finally continue that update with the MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 7.12.8. The new update features major optimizations done to the browser. Moreover, previously we had the launcher crashes when updated to 7.12.1 especially witnessed in Xiaomi Mi 5 and Redmi 3S MIUI 9 ROMs. Thankfully, the launcher is also fixed in this update.
The users who are using MIUI 8 Global Beta ROM can grab your update three methods:
OTA (Over the Air) Method
The simplest, risk-free, and the easiest way to jump to MIUI 9 is Via OTA. But let us tell you that if you want to go from Stable to Beta Version of MIUI 9, OTA update is not possible. You have to use the Fastboot method or Recovery method. Here’s the OTA method mentioned in three simple steps:
Open Mi Updater App
Click software update
Confirm and Download the update
Go to Settings
Click My device
Go to MIUI version
Click System Update
Click the update now in the notification bar.
Wait for the downloading to complete
Meanwhile, the user who are using MIUI V5 / MIUI 6 / MIUI 7 / MIUI 8 stable ROM can upgrade their phones to MIUI 9 via the fastboot method.
Fast Boot Method
This one is a little bit complicated and risky. If you haven’t received the update for your supported phone, you can’t try this. Moreover, it’s the only way to shift from Stable to Beta or Beta to Stable ROM or Developer to Stable / Beta.
Hope you will successfully download MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM. We hope that you won’t any Launcher problems in this update. Let’s talk in the comment section regarding your experience with MIUI 9, any problems, and improvements needed.
