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.

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.

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.
