If you're using MIUI V5/MIUI 6 stable version on your device, you can use anyone of the following 3 methods to upgrade to MIUI 7. It's recommended to back up user data before updating.

Method 1: OTA update

You can use this method if you're using MIUI V5/MIUI 6 stable version on your device. You will not receive OTA update on your device if you're using China developer version or Global beta build

1. Find 'Updater' app on your device -> Check for update.

Method 2: Flash Recovery ROM
You can use this method if you're using MIUI V5/MIUI 6 stable version, or China developer version/Global beta build on your device. If you're using China developer version/Global beta build, remember to wipe all user data in Recovery mode before flashing.

1. Find your device here and download full ROM. After downloading is completed, put the ROM file in the root directory of your device's storage

Method 3: Update using Mi PC Suite
You can use this method if you're using MIUI V5/MIUI 6 stable version on your device. You will not detect stable version update on your device if you're using China developer version or Global beta build

1. Download Mi PC Suite here and install it on your computer

2. Turn off your device, press the Power button and Volume- button at the same time to enter Fastboot mode

FAQs about upgrading to MIUI 7 stable version:

Q: What's MIUI 7 stable version?
A: MIUI has 3 ROM versions: Experimental, Developer, and Stable.

  • Experimental version is updated every day, and is open to a small part of senior members. It includes new features and bug fixes for the senior members to test before they enter developer version, therefore it contains high risks of serious bugs
  • Developer version (China) is updated every week, developer version (Global) is updated bi-weekly. It get new features and bug fixes in every update, and is stable enough for daily usage
  • Stable version doesn't have a regular update frequency. It's updated once a month/two months/even longer. Stability is its major concern. Common users who don't have much knowledge about smartphone or flashing ROMs are recommended to use this version

Q: Which devices could upgrade to MIUI 7 stable version?
A: Global MIUI 7 stable version supported devices are: Mi 3, Mi 4, Mi Pad, Mi Note, Redmi 1S 3G, Redmi Note 4G, Redmi 2/ Prime
China MIUI 7 stable version supported devices are: Mi 2/2S, Mi 3, Mi 4, Mi 4c, Mi 4i, Mi Note/Pro, Mi Pad, Redmi 1S W, Redmi Note 4G Single SIM, Redmi Note 4G Dual SIM, Redmi 2, Redmi Note 2.

For more details, check here and here

Q: When can I upgrade to MIUI 7 stable version?
A: MIUI 7 stable version (both China and Global) will be rolling out from 11am,Oct. 27th, 2015. As you know, we have been suffering from server issue for a long time. And in order to avoid download issues caused by massive downloading at the same time, the update will be pushed to users' devices gradually. Please wait patiently for the update to reach your device. If you can't wait, you can download the full ROMs here when they're uploaded.

Q: Are there any notes I need to taken before upgrading to MIUI 7 stable version?
A: It's highly recommended to back up user data before updating. OTA update is safe procedure, it's not necessary to back up data. But if you update using full ROM, it's better to back up all your data to a computer. Please don't update accross MIUI versions (experimental/developer/stable). If you really need to update accross MIUI versions, make sure to wipe all user data in Recovery mode before updating.

Q: Could developer version 'upgrade' to stable version?
A: The answer is yes. But you can't use the OTA method to update, and can only flash the full ROM. As developer version is actually advanced than stable version, there will be data conflict between the two versions, therefore make sure to wipe all user data in Recovery mode before flashing the ROM.
