Q: How to upgrade to MIUI 7 stable version?
A: The upgrade method depends on the MIUI version you’re currently using on your device
If you’re using MIUI V5/MIUI 6 stable version on your device, you can update directly on your deivce via OTA, or flash the full ROMs in recovery or using Mi PC Suite.
If you’re using MIUI China developer version or Global beta build, you can flash the full ROMs in recovery mode after wiping all user data.
Q: Are there any notes I need to taken before upgrading to MIUI 7 stable version?
A: It’s highly recommended to back up user data before updating. OTA update is safe procedure, it’s not necessary to back up data. But if you update using full ROM, it’s better to back up all your data to a computer. Please don’t update accross MIUI versions (experimental/developer/stable). If you really need to update accross MIUI versions, make sure to wipe all user data in Recovery mode before updating.
Q: Could developer version ‘upgrade’ to stable version?
A: The answer is yes. But you can’t use the OTA method to update, and can only flash the full ROM. As developer version is actually advanced than stable version, there will be data conflict between the two versions, therefor make sure to wipe all user data in Recovery mode before flashing the ROM.
