Xiaomi Mi 3, Mi 4 Gets Android 6.0 Marshmallow based MIUI ROM Update in China



Xiaomi Mi4

Xiaomi fans would be excited to learn that there devices would be getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow based MIUI update, as company has already started to roll out the Over-the-Air update to its users in China. The devices that are getting this update include the flagship iterations, Mi 3 and Mi 4 smartphones. Company took this announcement to their MIUI forum page, thus making it official.

Note that this Marshmallow based MIUI ROM is only for users in China, which has a MIUI version. Now if you’re not a region as stated above, we recommend you to wait for the global variant to roll out, which should be roll out soon, as the Chinese stable ROM has been released. Apart from the language part, the biggest difference between the two ROM; China and Global is that China MIUI ROM doesn’t have Google’s Stock (Google Mobile Services) apps installed on the device. Thus, you won’t be able to access Gmail, Google Maps and many other services on the Chinese ROM if you reside outside of China.

The is a stable release, which updates the almost three-year-old device, Mi 3 and two-year-old device, the Mi 4, to the latest Android OS. Moreover, it also fixes some issues related to installing Cortana has been resolved, as well as issues with customized themes has been fixed too.

Again, we remind you that this is a custom ROM for China based Mi handsets, which would be sent via OTA as well as made available on official MIUI ROM for users to directly, flash on their respective devices. If you’re familiar with rooting on a Xiaomi devices, then you’ll know it’s quite easier than doing it on any other handset. All due to company offer a Mi Root app, which does all the code crunching and you just have to sit tight and be patient.

With Xiaomi started its sale of the latest Mi flagship, the Mi 5, in China, it was about time the older iterations get updated to the same Android OS based MIUI ROM as comes on the Mi 5. In related news, the company also announced that they would be launching their latest flagship in India on March 31st, which is just couple of days away. Now if you’re an Indian using handsets like Mi 3 and Mi 4, then it can be said that you would be seeing a dedicated major update for your Mi handsets soon.
