We always have a field day every week flashing new versions of the MIUI 8 Global Beta ROM and China Developer ROM, but you must agree with me that sometimes we just hope a stable ROM would be released and all the tweaking and flashing would stop for a while. Well, you can stop hoping now. Xiaomi Mi Max Prime users, I’m happy to announce to you that the latest iteration of the Global Stable ROM for the device, MIUI 8 Global Stable V126.96.36.199.MBDMIDG is out!
If you’re hearing Mi Max Prime for the first time and you’re confused as to what smartphone this is, the Xiaomi Mi Max Prime is also called Mi Max Pro in some quarters.

How to Update/Flash MIUI 8 Global Stable V22.214.171.124.MBDMIDG on your Mi Max Prime
There are two ways you can flash software updates onto a Xiaomi smartphone; either naturally via the Updater app on your phone (OTA [over the air]) or through manual flashing.
OTA via Updater App
You can use this method if your phone is currently using the stable version of the MIUI ROM from version 5 down to version 7. Simply open the Updater app on your smartphone, make sure you’re connected to the internet and click on “Check for updates”.
This is one is quite tricky. You have to wait for the update to be rolled to your particular smartphone. This might take a couple of days, and a situation whereby your friend already has his makes things worse. For those who don’t have the patience, read on to see the second method.
Via Manual Flashing (Fastboot or Recovery)
There are two ways by which you can flash updates to your phone manually; via Fastboot or Recovery. Both require you to download the ROM package you want to flash onto your SD card and go through certain steps to have the software running on your smartphone.
For this method, it’s important that you back up all important data on your phone before commencing the process. Also, if you’re on a Beta ROM (either Global Beta or China Developer), either revert to a stable one or wipe all device data before flashing in order to avoid serious software issues.
So, are you excited about this stable software for your Xiaomi Mi Max Prime? Have you gotten yours? How has the experience been? Do let us know in the comments section below.
For other Xiaomi devices, be patient, I’ll be back with more stable ROMs 😉 .
