  5. Satyajit says:

    Is it a stable version of MIUI 6 for India or a developer version

  6. chandan says:

    Hi Mayur,
    Sometime back I installed screen cast on my mi 3 . I had to root my phone as suggested by you in an article on webtricz(thank you).
    After that my miui version showing as KXDMIBF 34.0 instead of official KXDMIBH 34.0. (BTW you have mentioned KXDMIBF 34.0 in this article). Just want to confirm will this have any effect on my MIUI V 6 update. Since you have mentioned KXDMIBF 34.0 in this article so I think I am safe…

  7. Siddhartha says:

    i have a query, the new UI will be in English or Chinese?
    and Google Play will be there or get deleted after update??

  8. Mayank says:

    Does it have any known bugs?
    As stated earlier Xiaomi had updated the version to v6.4.9.
    Anyhow. Great job.

  9. Tarun says:

    I am running the Developer Rom 5.1.30 (MIUI6) currently – can I install this stable version over this without doing a factory reset?

  10. Siddhartha says:

    Hello Mayur,
    Thanx for your info..
    I flashed the ROM. Its Working Fine but there is no mirror camera option, while botting blue screen blinks, swipe up to open gloabl search is absent, notificaion bar is completely opaque which I found in some screenshots to be little transperent and the last, online music option is absent in music player.
    Are these bugs?
    And will we get the official OTA updates through Updater App on this Global ROM?

    • Mayur says:

      Hi Siddhartha, the mirror filter is there when you swipe towards left in camera. Blue flick while booting is there in stable as well as Dev ROM. Long press home button to open Google Now. Status/notification bar is translucent only when on homescreen or lockscreen. Yeah, online option doesn’t seems there in stock music player.

      These aren’t bugs actually, several features you see in Developer ROM aren’t soon added to stable ROM. Yes, you’ll get official OTA updates just like before.

  11. satish says:

    Hi mayur,

  12. Virendra says:

    Hi Mayur,
    Thank for update.
    I want to know why this update is not available on official website

    If official stable update released then it should be there. right?

    And from where you get this update.

    Please help me for my confusion.

    • Mayur says:

      It’s official update and you can figure that out by comparing the download URL. As it’s a major OTA update, it’s rolled out in batches and isn’t made available soon on website. Coz an OTA rollout can be halted if they see some serious bug with the update.
