It’s been years since Redmi 1S hit the market. But Xiaomi were reluctant to give periodical updates to the device. Thankfully, the device just received the MIUI 18.104.22.168 global stable update over the air. This update brings much-awaited features to the device including design and usability tweaks.
MIUI 22.214.171.124 KHCMIEK global stable ROM can be downloaded for Redmi 1S through this guide. Although this update is rolled out for every user, it may take a while to receive it on your device depending on the location and provider. If you’re quite excited to get the firmware without waiting more, this tutorial helps you download & manually update Redmi 1S to MIUI 126.96.36.199 KHCMIEK global stable ROM.
Manually updating Redmi 1S to MIUI 188.8.131.52 global stable ROM doesn’t void warranty or erase data from the device. The update procedure uses the phone’s stock recovery and obviously, this is a recovery ROM. So it should not be confused with the fastboot ROM. I will be updating the post with the fastboot method once I fetch the URL for the same.

It doesn’t usually wipe the date while upgrading. But it’s always recommended to make a full device backup prior performing any developmental activities like this.
