Hey guys!

When I downloaded the latest miui, I got, to my surprise, a .bin file. I renamed it to .zip, and all the right contents are inside, but I don't know if it's safe to flash like this... Can I flash this or should I download from another website?

I could've sworn I replied to this earlier!

It's safe to flash the zip file, as long as it's not corrupted, when you open the zip.

Make a backup of your current rom, just in case, but you shouldn't have any problems flashing it.

I've had to rename .bin files to .zip before as well, and my phone still survived. 😁
