  • Xiaomi custom users face a problem with firmware updates. As there are many devices with no one to provide the newest firmware update every single release, and developers who provide updates to devices may forget or be busy sometimes, so releases are provided later. Here comes Xiaomi Firmware Updater project:

    What is Xiaomi Firmware Updater?
    A set of various scripts that automatically generates Xiaomi firmware flashable zip files for every MIUI new update! My scripts download MIUI official ROMs, both Developer and Stable, Global, EEA, India, and China, extract firmware either from the firmware-update folder or from update payload, generate firmware flashable zip with auto-written "updater-script", and uploads them automatically to multiple servers. These scripts are completely automated, running on a Linux server every X hours.

    Notes:
    Firmware filenames for this device are in the following manner:
    • fw_alioth_miui_ALIOTH_*.zip is Redmi K40 (alioth) China firmware.
    • fw_alioth_miui_ALIOTHGlobal_*.zip is POCO F3 (alioth) Global firmware.
    • fw_alioth_miui_ALIOTHEEAGlobal_*.zip is POCO F3 (alioth) EEA Global firmware.
    • fw_alioth_miui_ALIOTHINGlobal_*.zip is Mi 11X (alioth) India Global firmware.

    Frequently Asked Questions:
    What is firmware? Is it a full ROM or OTA package?
    Firmware is not a ROM nor OTA Package, it's a set of low-level drivers which helps the operating system do whatever it wants to do. It includes various things like Modem, Bluetooth, Bootloader, DSP and etc.

    Why should I update the Firmware?
    Firmware is provided from Xiaomi directly, and there are no sources for it to let developers build and edit it on their own like custom ROMs, so if you want to keep your device up to date always update your firmware!

    Do I need to update the Firmware If I'm an MIUI official or a custom ROM user?
    No, MIUI ROMs contain the firmware-update package which I extract and provide here.

    What are the supported devices?
    All Snapdragon and MTK devices including China-only devices.
    Check the full devices list here

    How to update the firmware?
    1- Download the package you want to flash. IT MUST BE NAMED WITH THE SAME CODENAME OF YOUR DEVICE.
    2- Flash it using TWRP or any custom recovery. There's no need to wipe/format anything before or after the installation.

    How to check the updated firmware?
    Usually, the modem gets updated with newer firmware, you can check it in Settings > About > Baseband.

    I have a question and would appreciate if somebody can answer it along with complete procedure if possible (if that can be done). I have a mi11x purchased in India and would want to flash a poco f3 global Rom on it. Heard they both have the same hardware and that can be done. Please provide clarity and the procedure. Thanks in advance!

    Download miflashtool and flash global firmware with it. Just dont select "flash all with lock" because that will hard brick your phone and you will have to take it to a mi store to get it fixed.

    You mean the poco f3 global rom needs to be flashed on the mi11x? Does it recognise it or do i have to rename anything? I am a noob coz the last time I flashed was years back. Thanks in advance!

      First, this question belongs here
      Second, yes you can. Simply unlock the bootloader and flash the ROM using Mi Flash. There is a detailed guide link in the first post of the thread I mentioned.
