Greetings MIUIers,
MIUI the name always reminds us the update. Most of the MIUIers are update lovers. Update update update, its almost like a slogan for some people. So what is the update for? How many types of updates available? How and who can get the updates? I'll clarify those questions in this thread.

The MIUI updates are generally for solve the issues and add new features through the update.

Different types of ROM updates:
MIUI rom updates have various types. Let's see what are those types.
-MIUI Alpha
-MIUI Nightly or Beta
-MIUI Developer or Stable

MIUI Nightly or Beta:
It gets update from Monday to Thursday and the updates will be available to use for only particular set of people. Some nightly updates will be released to particular people before it goes to public for the testing purpose. Nightly is test rom.

Question: What is MIUI China ROM and MIUI Global ROM?
Answer:
MIUI China ROM:
Its specially developed for the Chinese people. This rom will not have pre-installed Google Apps and services. The language is limited with Chinese and English. However this rom has separate app market and unique features.

MIUI Global ROM:
Its specially developed for the worldwide users. It comes with pre-installed Google apps and services. It has many language support and it also has some unique features. This rom is analysed and verified by Google.

Question: Will I get the update for MIUI Stable ROM if my device is on MIUI Developer ROM?
Answer:
No, you will get update for only the rom you have flashed in your device. You will not get MIUI Stable ROM update in the MIUI Developer ROM and the same you will not get MIUI Developer ROM updates in the MIUI Stable ROM.

Question: Why the released updates are disappeared from the updater?
Answer:
The updates will be revoked if the MIUI Developer team found any critical/serious issues. If the update is revoked then it will not appear in the MIUI Updater.

Do you have any other queries related to the updates? Ask in the reply, I'll try to answer it
