So I put the file on the internal storage and then I enter the recovery? I'm sorry, I can't remember How I did it last time.

So far build 2094 of Oreo is not available for the public yet. Although I hope to revive my paperweight from the forced energy saving mode using only two from for cores (as with Nougat 1560) to use it again.

So, when the .zip file is released, will I be able to use the recovery to update to 8.0 via USB if I have the Nougat Beta or do I need to downgrade to 6.0?

If you have a mdz-16-ab your update will eventually come via OTA. Everybody waits their turn.

I have a mainstream box, not registered with beta program, running Nougat beta 1560. It is still constantly getting prompted to update MM build 1901. Naturally, it fails.
No telling if that will go away once the official OTA for Oreo becomes available.

My beta box, also on build 1560, got final Oreo release on Sunday last.

    This is a terrible title/thread. Post if someone actually has an update zip.
    Unfortunately the only method of disseminating Oreo is via OTA.
    The following conditions apply
    You must be connected to internet when your turn comes for public release
    >>>You must be running stock MM 1901
    OR
    You must be running Nougat Beta 1560<<<

    You must have a valid MAC address that has not been altered

    In other words: MiBox 3 MDZ-16-AB Oreo is not really "out." Not in the way in which anybody reading the thread title would take it to mean.

    My point remains.

    I believe the title came from the original Reddit post by a guy named koshergoy. He posted the update was released with screenshots and the size of the firmware
    update and deleted the post a short time later. He "koshergoy" and "miboy" on the Xiaomi forums are, well, not as helpful as they pretend to be. They both have access as they are in the beta group. I have to assume they find people's frustrations with the device to be funny. Just my thoughts on the matter.
