Hello everyone,
home-nfc.jpg

I am writing this thread in an attempt to make it easier for forum members and Mi 3 owners to manage their device. Mi 3 is one of the most famous Xiaomi device and there is a ton of information about it on the forum. But most of it is not organized properly so its hard for new members to search and find the correct thread to meet their need. So i am compiling together a post with the most important threads for the device. All credits go to the original owners of the thread.
Note: To view the links in this thread, you have to reply to the thread. Please avoid replys like 'ahajaajajaja' or anything else that does not make sense. As its forbidden by forum rules.
Official ROMs

The official MIUI ROM updates are made available to the users via OTA. However, if you have a rooted system or unable to get the updates via OTA, you can manually download and flash the latest version from this forum.

Latest stable rom download page for Mi 3 -
  Please reply to view this thread.

. Select your device version and download the corresponding ROM pack. You can choose to download the stable ROM or the Developer ROM on this page.


FastBoot ROM collection Page:
  Please reply to view this thread.


Flashing guide for ROM pack and Fastboot ROM:
  Please reply to view this thread.


To update to MIUI V6(based on Kitkat 4.4) download and flash the latest developer ROM. You will find the MIUI v6 update via the updater app.


Note: Flashing ROMs, switching to developer ROM or updating to MIUI v6 will not void warranty. However, be sure to always take a backup of your device in case something doest go the way it is supposed to.

Custom ROMs

Initially, there were no Custom ROMs available for the Mi 3. But recently we have seen lots of custom ROMs being developed for the device. This can be attributed to the craze the device has created in recent times. Since no official Kernel sources have been released, most of the ROMs are not perfectly stable and might have a few bugs. If you want to take a break from MIUI and experience something else, here's a collection of custom ROMs posted in the forum.

Note: Most of these ROMs are not completely stable. Flash at your own risk. Follow the instructions in the thread. No one will be responsible if you brick your device. Always take a backup first before experimenting. Credits to all the ROMs go to their creators and the forum users who initially posted the threads.

Root/UnRoot

Rooting your phone has many advantages. It allows you to grant superuser access to apps and get more control of your device. You can use many more features on a rooted device. You can manage your phone's internal memory better, remove unwanted stuff easily, flash custom ROMs and so on. However, there are some disadvantages too, you might end up bricking your device if you flash a corrupted file while rooting or miss an important step. But overall, rooting is a good idea, especially since our beloved xiaomi does not deny us warranty if we root the device.



You can easily root your device and unroot it again following this procedure -

Alternatively, you can follow this thread to root your device -

Custom Recovery(CWM)

ClockworkMod, abbreviated as CWM, is a popular custom recovery for Android phones and tablets developed by Koushik Dutta (Koush). ClockworkMod recovery allows you to perform several advanced recovery, restoration, installation and maintenance operations on your Android device that aren’t possible with the stock recovery, and is one of the most common ways used to gain root access, back up device data, install custom ROMs, kernels, themes & mods, and more.


You can download CWM which supports true dual-boot by following this thread -
  Please reply to view this thread.


Instructions for installing and using CWM can be found here -
  Please reply to view this thread.

Google Apps and Services

After flashing a new ROM you will need to flash the Google apps package separetely. It can be done by flashing the .zip package through recovery. You will need to flash the Gapps(Google Apps) package which is built for your operating system.


Gapps for Kitkat (Miui V6 or other kitkat ROMs) -


Google Stock Package: This package is recommended for most users of current generation devices (legacy device owners may want to use Mini or Micro Modular GAPPs due to the size of this package). It includes all the Google Apps that come standard on Nexus devices.

In this package you will find the Core Base, Google Gallery, Sun Beam Live Wallpaper, and the following Play Store applications:Chrome Browser (replaces stock/AOSP Browser), Cloud Print, Gmail, Google+, Google Calendar (replaces stock/AOSP Calendar), Google Camera (replaces stock/AOSP Camera), Google Drive, Google Earth, Google Keep, Google Now Launcher (replaces stock/AOSP Launcher), Google Text-to-Speech (replaces stock/AOSP Pico TTS), Google Keyboard (replaces stock/AOSP Keyboard), Google Play Books, Google Play Games, Google Play Newsstand, Google Play Music, Google Play Movies, Google Play services, Google Search, Google Wallet, Hangouts (replaces stock/AOSP SMS App), Maps, Quickoffice, Sound Search for Google Play, Street View on Google Maps, TalkBack and YouTube.

Any of these ROM's provide device encryption option? MIUI doesn't provide device encryption, due to  ...

Cm11 provides device encryption as a standard feature. Not sure about the other threads. AOSP should support it too, I would request you to head over to the corresponding thread of the ROM you are interested in via the links i have posted, and confirm it with the users there.

TheDorkKnight I think so...the Mi3 and Mi4 share similar boards, hence ROMs are cross-compatible, I think...  22:02, Oct-15-2014
