MIUI 8 Alpha direct download links

Xiaomi Dev Team has updated the testing build of MIUI 8. Here in this page listed direct download links to MIUI 8 v6.6.1 Fastboot and Recovery ROMs Alpha Build v6.6.1 for Mi 5, Mi Max, Mi Note, Mi 4, Mi 3, Mi 2, and Mi 2S. However, other devices may also get MIUI 8 in the near future batch by batch so please be patient if the one you own is not in the supported lists yet. For your information, MIUI Dev Team has announced and invited several Beta testers to actually test the performance of this most anticipated MIUI version in real usage scenarios. Luckily, anyone can now test MIUI 8 by installing its Alpha build which is basically just nearly the same as Stable build unless it’s not official yet – but you may expect some bugs on it.

Previous version: MIUI 8 v6.5.31 China Alpha ROM.

Few important things you should know before flashing this ROM :

  • Mi 5 and Mi Max devices need to have unlocked bootloader before flashing this build.
  • Devices that have been running MIUI 8 (registered MIUI 8 testers) will still be able to receive OTA updates.
  • Normal users will not get OTA updates after flashing this build.
  • Latest beta version of MiFlash is needed to flash the Fastboot ROM.
  • MIUI8 China Developer ROM is scheduled for release on June 17th. You might want to wait till that date to expect more stable build than Alpha build.
