Happy new year, everyone! The MIUI 9 Global Beta updates continue in 2018. The developers have special surprises in this year. First, MIUI 9 Stable ROM will roll out in early 2018. Secondly, we might even see MIUI 10 in late 2018. However, moving to the first MIUI 9 update of this year (MIUI 9 2018) as well as this week’s update ‘MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 8.1.4’, we have some new button layout and optimization done to Mi Browser. These include the introduction of auto-suggestion in the address bar, to save your time type the complete URL.
Moreover, we also have some incredible major fixes as well in the MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 8.1.4 update.
You can get the last week’s update ‘MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 7.12.28‘ as well.
The users who are using MIUI 8 Global Beta ROM can grab your update three methods:
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:
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.
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.
How To Make a Local Backup?
Steps Before Fast-booting
Warning!!! Don’t remove the USB cable when the phone is fast-booting.
Safety Measure: We recommend to backup your data before fastboot. Shifting from Developer mode to Stable requires a complete wipe.
If you want a fresh installation, you can also select the recovery mode option and download the Recovery ROM.
