MIUI 9 weekly updates continue to provide great fixes and optimization every week and this week we have the MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 8.2.1 update. Now that MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM has also been released, MIUI developers will shift some attention towards the Stable ROM. However, moving to this week’s update MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 8.2.1 provides some huge fixes for Android Oreo. No doubt, the update isn’t propitious for the users who are still running on Android 7.0 and Android 6.0 as most updates are related to Android 8.0. The only new feature we see is the single column created for games in Game speed booster. Moreover, there are some minor fixes as well for all MIUI 9 users.
You can get the last week’s update ‘MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM 8.1.25‘ 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.
