Mi 5: Download & Install MIUI 8.5.3.0 Global Stable ROM

(Last Updated On: September 28, 2017)

Download MIUI 8.5.3.0 Global Stable ROM for Mi 5 (gemini): MIUI 8.5.3.0 global stable ROM (NAAMIED) for Mi 5 has just been pushed out to few users via OTA and in order to update the device to the latest global stable (bug-free) version, you need to check the Device Updater app included in the phone. If that doesn’t show any updates, you can manually download and update the same by following below tutorial.

Recovery ROM lets you install the MIUI V8.5.3.0.NAAMIED on Mi 5 with the help of stock recovery via Updater app. This is in fact, the safest and recommended way to update the device. However, the fastboot ROM requires a computer access along with certain flashing applications installed to proceed with the upgrade.

Manually updating Mi 5 to MIUI 8.5.3.0 global stable ROM doesn’t void warranty or erase data within the device. Both the recovery ROM and the fastboot ROM have different flashing procedures. Make sure you follow the specific steps which I have mentioned below to update your device easily.
