MIUI 8 Alpha was released a little while ago, and since it came out the number one question we’ve received is “How do I install it?!”

This guide will take you through all the steps. If you run into any problems, let us know in the comments below.

Prerequisites for installing MIUI 8:


  1. First download the MIUI 8 ROM zip file for your device (links below). Extract the zip file.
  2. After extracting the image folder copy and paste this folder into your device C drive.
  3. Boot your device into fastboot mode by pressing and holding the volume down + power button for few seconds until you see the Mi logo.
  4. After booting into fastboot mode connect you device with PC via USB cable. (If your device is not showing it means Adb drivers are not installed properly)
  5. In the Mi Flash tool you will find an option called browse just click on that and navigate the image folder which we put in the C drive earlier. Select flash all except data store.
