Hi MIUIers,

MIUI 7 stable version is launching tomorrow, are you ready? While waiting, let's check out some commonly asked questions, and matters need attention for this upgrade.

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 prefer ROM stability 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: How to upgrade to MIUI 7 stable version?
A: The upgrade method depends on the MIUI version you're currently using on your device
  • If you're using MIUI V5/MIUI 6 stable version on your device, you can update directly on your deivce via OTA, or flash the full ROMs in recovery or using Mi PC Suite.
  • If you're using MIUI China developer version or Global beta build, you can flash the full ROMs in recovery mode after wiping all user data.

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, therefor make sure to wipe all user data in Recovery mode before flashing the ROM.
