Hi MIUIers, with its development, MIUI now has so many different versions, and it may be a bit confusing. If you have doubts about the different MIUI versions, please check these threads:
MIUI ROM FAQ: Recovery/Fastboot/Global ROMs explained
Different MIUI versions explained: Developer/Stable/Ported/Local ROMs

Here I want to talk about the beta updates for MIUI Stable version.


We don't have a beta team to test stable version beta updates in the forum. But we need more people to test it, so beta updates for MIUI stable versions will be released to a part of normal users (30% of all users for example) (How to get beta update for MIUI Stable version). Some users don't know that they have access to beta updates, and this has caused some problems before.

Please note that, if you're not a special team member, but you received a update named 'Nightly', or you got a update but others using the same device from your country didn't, then you've got a beta update. And please Do Not post the ROM download link on the forum, otherwise you'll be dealt with as leaking beta ROMs.

After getting the beta updates, if you find some bugs, please report here following the given format. And please make sure to choose the correct device and ROM version. Before posting a thread, please make sure it's really a bug (MIUI Bugs Guideline:-Please Read before Posting a Bug), otherwise your thread will be moved or deleted.

Please drop me a message if you didn't find your ROM version in the dropdown list.

I think, there are some points to ponder in the post by @aremeis.

Some of the things that flashed through my mind..

1. How someone should receive Beta updates, if he/she is not a member of Special Team as questioned by @aremeis?
2. Due dilegence is required in the selection of Special Team/Beta member as the ROMs are getting leaked immediately on release.
3. Bug reporting is messy now and needs to be organized. Previous seggregation of Beta/Stable/Developer version of bugs was good for search.
4. Lot of bug reports are duplicated and require clean up and I personally prefer a single thread for the release with a summary of bugs as the first post.
5. It was made mandatory that the bugs shall be discussed over QQ group and confirm with others before posting the bug report.
6. Lot of members are shown in Beta Team and are not found even over QQ group
7. This shall be strictly followed, that first ask them to join the group and thereafter promote them to the Special/Beta Team

Admins and moderators please take care...
We are here to support and make MIUI a better one as always..

Please note that, if you're not a special team member, but you received a update named 'Nightly', or you got a update but others using the same device from your country didn't, then you've got a beta update.

There will be no fire if there's no spark in the first place and while I find your thread informative, I wonder if you had stopped to think for a moment how a user could actually receive this update in the first place. It is obvious that there is some mishandling of the Beta ROM and I hate to say this but it is certainly on your administration here to find the answers within.

You may not see the gravity of the issue but from the security discerning, your office is very careless and negligent with sensitive materials. In your world, there's really no need for hackers or spies to conduct espionage since people within your midst can offer up sensitive information "VOLUNTARILY". So for heaven's sake, exercise some prudence and due diligence here.

then you've got a beta update. And please Do Not post the ROM or the changelog on the forum, otherwise you'll be dealt with as leaking beta ROMs.

I wonder how is this going to be on the thread starter when YOU PERSONALLY include a comprehensive instruction on "How to get beta update for MIUI Stable version" with link attached for all users to access and use and "ABUSE". As a Beta Tester, I remembered clearly being told that these Beta versions are not accessible by the general public and hence observe a strict code of secrecy conduct, but alas we can see the "lawmakers" making and breaking that same law.

Are we making the saying "laws are meant to broken" become a reality here?
