Follow this tutorial to immediately install MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM on your Poco F1 — firmware brings Android 9.0 Pie to the phone. Previously, Xiaomi was testing Beta builds of MIUI 10 on its Pocophone but finally, the brand is happy with its software and is now pushing it as a stable update. Seeing the large list of regions where Poco F1 is being sold and also where it has been imported by customers, it is logical to think that not all devices will be able to receive the update immediately. In case your device is not showing you the OTA update, we recommend you read our guide ahead. We have complete tips that show how to use stock recovery and Updater app to manually install MIUI 10 Global Stable update on Xiaomi Poco F1.
Poco F1 has been a very interesting device. Regions such as India have seen the smartphone grow to quite a large user base. Despite all the value that the phone brought at an extremely low price, it lacked in latest software. However, that is all about to change with new MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM. Previously, we covered how users could install a Beta revision but due to kinks and bugs, it wasn’t recommended to be daily driven. Now, with the Global Stable ROM, those bugs have been addressed and all users can try MIUI 10 on Poco F1.

Step 4 – From the file explorer view, choose the Recovery ROM file you transferred to your device in Step 2. Select the file as shown in the screenshot below and tap the OK button.
Step 5 – The Updater app will now check your ROM file for any errors and set it up for installation.
Step 6 – Once completed, you will be prompted to reboot the phone and install the update. Tap on the Reboot and update button to proceed.
Step 7 – Your phone will reboot now and installation will begin.
Step 8 – Your phone may reboot again during installation. So do not worry if that happens.
Step 9 – Once completed, your phone will start normally like it used to before installing the update.
Step 10 – To check and confirm what MIUI version has been installed on your phone, go to Settings > About phone.
