How to Update Mi Max 2 to MIUI Global Stable ROM

(Last Updated On: August 11, 2017)

Download MIUI Global Stable ROM for Mi Max 2: The latest MIUI version (NDDMIED) for Mi Max 2 has just been pushed out to few users via OTA and in order to update Max 2 to MIUI 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 method using either recovery or fastboot ROM.

Recovery ROM lets you install the MIUI V8.5.6.0.NDDMIED on Mi Max 2 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. I will be explaining both methods but make sure that you have taken necessary precautions before that.

You may check the previous tutorial for Mi Max 2, where I shared the MIUI Global Stable ROM manual update guide. In case you got a lower MIUI version (below 8.4), you had better flash the previous update first and then try this latest update. Here’s the link:
