Xiaomi Mi 6 MIUI 9 Stable ROM Release
MIUI 9 is based on Android Nougat. Several users at XDA have reported of receiving the update notification. It seems like the update is slowly rolling out to all devices worldwide, but since we haven’t received any official word from Xiaomi on this, we can’t be so sure yet.
The OTA update is labeled MIUI V18.104.22.168.NCAMIEI and is sized around 568 MB and offers a really long list of new changes for those running MIUI 8. If you have not yet received the notification, then open the ‘Updater’ app and press the ‘Check for updates’ button.
Thankfully, XDA senior member – mELIANTE has managed to grab the official link to the full ROM package, which we will be using to install Xiaomi Mi 6 MIUI 9 Stable ROM.
- Your Mi 6 must be running the previous Stable MIUI V22.214.171.124.NCAMIEG.
- If your phone has MIUI 9 Beta installed, then do not flash the *.zip below. First of all, rollback to the previous stable release, which can be downloaded from here. You can then use the official ‘Recovery update’ instructions to flash the file.
- This process will not wipe any data. But it is always better to be extra precautious while performing manual updates. So, before you move ahead to the instructions, make sure to completely backup your Mi 6: Tutorial
- Charge your device to at least 50-60% battery juice to avoid any hiccups during the update process.
