1st way:From the MIUI Updater app you can reboot directly into recovery mode.

2nd way: You need to turn off your phone and then press the Volume + button along with the power button.

When you use the second method then once in the recovery mode you can use the volume up and volume down button for navigation and to select anything you can click on the power button.

  • Next you will need to navigate to install update.zip and confirm installation by selecting the yes button. Once it is installed then select the back button and then reboot.

  • First you need to install the new ROM and create a new folder named update.zip and transfer the file there.
  • Then next just open the updater app and click the option given on the top right corner.
  • There you will get the option to ‘choose an update package’, just click on that. Fine the folder where the file is and select it. The installation will start automatically.
  • Now, you don’t need to click anything it will happen automatically.
