All Xiaomi users suffer from a single problem, Firmware update. As there are many devices with no one to provide the newest firmware update every single release. And also developers who provide updates to devices may forget or be busy sometimes, so releases are provided later. Here is my simple solution:

Xiaomi Firmware Updater (Mi Max)

Code:
#include 
/*
* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
*/

A set of various script that automatically generates Xiaomi firmware flashable zip files every MIUI new update!
My scripts download MIUI official ROMs, both Developer and Stable, Global and China, extracts the firmware-update folder, generates firmware flashable zip with auto-written "updater-script", and uploads them automatically to many servers.
The scripts are completely automated, running on a Linux server every six hours.

Note:
Name's will be in the following manner:
  • fw_miui_MIMAX_*.zip is Xiaomi Mi Max (hydrogen) China firmware
  • fw_miui_MIMAXGlobal_*.zip is Xiaomi Mi Max (hydrogen) Global firmware
  • fw_miui_MIMAX652_*.zip is Xiaomi Mi Max Prime (helium) China firmware
  • fw_miui_MIMAX652Global_*.zip is Xiaomi Mi Max Prime (helium) Global firmware

Downloads
You can get updates always from various mirrors avaliable on the website:
Older files are available here.

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 updating the Firmware If I'm MIUI official or custom ROM user?
No, MIUI ROMs contain the firmware-update package which I extract and provide here.
What are the supported devices?
All Snapdragon devices including China-only devices.
Check the full devices list here!
Why there are no MTK devices?
Because it doesn't have firmware-update package :p
How to update 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.

    As Xiaomi has stopped Developer ROM updates, there won't be new Weekly firmware updates anymore.
    I'll close the thread. However, Stable updates firmware will be available automatically once a new update is out, and I'll keep the old downloads are available as well. You can get download links from the first post.
    Cheers!
