Waiting For MIUI 12? You Can Still Download The Closed Beta Update


Xiaomi recently launched a massive update to its Android skin — MIUI 12. The update comes with new animations, major UI changes, and a plethora of interesting features. The first batch of devices will receive MIUI 12 by the end of June.

A few hours ahead of the launch, Xiaomi opened up registration for the MIUI 12 Closed Beta that lasted for a day. While you may have lost your chance to be part of the beta team, you can still download the MIUI 12 beta version.

Thankfully, XDA developers have extracted all the MIUI 12 beta builds for the supported devices that were available on the launch day.

Here is the list of devices for which MIUI 12 Closed Beta is available —

Bear in mind that the MIUI 12 beta builds are technically for Chinese variants. Not only it’ll be challenging to install the builds on a global variant, but they will lack necessities such as Google Play Store support. On top of that, expect the builds to be crawling with bugs and glitches.

For installation, users will have to flash the MIUI 12 China ROM manually with the closed beta. You will require a custom recovery like TWRP, which is not possible without unlocking the bootloader. It’s similar to how one would install a custom ROM on a Xiaomi device.
