Also downloaded the full .zip file to the downloaded_rom directory, updater says "Can't verify update."
Totally stuck. No way to update, or to get Android Pay to work in USA. Too bad such great hardware is made useless by crappy software.
jakeip, 09 May 2017You can download and install the official global ROM for your device from the miui forum here.... moreOk, I downloaded and extracted everything in the link you posted to a "downloaded_rom" directory on the phone, as per the manufacturer's instructions, and the phone's System Update program does not recognize any item in the entire contents of that directory as a valid update.
So if I have all the contents in the "downloaded_rom" directory as instructed, what then?
Yes, its available here in Phils, thru Lazada with 1yr warranty php30,500
Thats the way all phones must look ,finaly a nice model , but for a better price .

Fastboot method from xiaomi is very easy because they have a flashing application, you don't have to know all those commands to flash your phone. However you will need to backup before any of the methods as you are coming from a non verified ROM.
Here is the link http://en.miui.com/download-317.html
Really an amazing phone. I bought the Ultimate version which comes with a nice leather case.
- Wonderful design and the ceramic is just amazing. Most beautiful phone I've ever seen.
- Powerful (6GB RAM) and very easy to use. I had it with multi language and google play store. I saw nothing in Chinese.
- 6.4 inches screen but still reasonable phone size
- 4G works fine in Belgium
- Battery life is excellent (Coudn't test the 3.0 quick charge yet)
- Fingerprint scanner is very good
- Good and unique sound created by the ceramic while calling
- Very high quality phone and material for that price (I had for 600Â€, all included)
- Camera is quite poor. Camera of my Galaxy S6 works much better.
- Screen and resolution are good but not as great as Amoled screen can be
I'm a very huge fan of this phone which I will use as my everyday phone. But I will keep my S6 when I know I will need a camera.
Simon, 24 Apr 2017s7 camera is better Even the Galaxy S6 camera is better. That's his main default.

Anonymous, 27 Apr 2017Excellent! This is what I want. Thank you for clarifying this point. I will order one unit soon.My unit has finally arrived. I bought the 18k Model, 256GB ROM, 6GB RAM. It is really an awesome phone. Both 3G and 4G connectivity works simultaneously. With the huge memory capacity, coupled with the second space feature, it is so practical for me to just carry one phone instead of two phones previously. Only problem which I am facing now is that the Android Pay does not work on this phone. My phone was come with Global ROM (but according to official Xiaomi site, there isn't any Global ROM for this phone). I am not sure if the Bootloader was unlocked and cause the Android Pay refused to work. I am going to check it out later tonight!
Clownonymous, 08 Apr 2017xiaomi looks more gorgeous but i guess is more expensive than s7 edgeI don't think so, unless you can buy it for less then 580$ (in China) (the 6GB 256GB version)
Can anyone tell me what the GSM/HSPA/LTE bands for this device are? I want to make sure it's compatible with AT&T in the US.
Xperia Z Ultra Fan, 26 Apr 2017Yes, it will do sim1 @ 4g while doing sim2 at 3g. I did that simultaneously.Excellent! This is what I want. Thank you for clarifying this point. I will order one unit soon.
Xperia Z Ultra Fan, 26 Apr 2017Yes, it will do sim1 @ 4g while doing sim2 at 3g. I did that simultaneously.Excellent! Thank you for your clarification. I am proceeding to get a set now with your confirmation!
Yes, it will do sim1 @ 4g while doing sim2 at 3g. I did that simultaneously.
I have been eyeing this phone for quite a while. As I need both SIM cards to be able to work on 4G and 3G simulteneously, I do not think this phone is able to do so, too bad! May be someone can confirm for me. Thank you
Owned for 4 weeks now, 6G, 256G version. Best hardware ever, period.
Software is glitchy, actually crashy in the case of Mi Cloud. Can't update the firmware without extensive computer participation, or becoming a developer, or something. I've tried a couple of times, no success. Too bad the software side is nowhere near the level of this hardware. The software is just not reliable enough to use, at least in the USA. I'm keeping it just in case a good ROM rolls out someday. Until then, I'm using a Galaxy S8+ that I don't like as much, but that has software that actually works.
Currently own this phone (256gb 6gb RAM) in the united states after buying from a friend that brought it over from China(FYI NOT SOLD IN any carrier in USA). First thing I must get off my mind is why in the world USA does not carry the most attention to detail, precisive, reliable, and everlasting phone on the planet to this date April 2017. Second thing I must get off my mind is this masterpiece of engineering detail is mind bogglingly uphearting to the point as a consumer I know exactly what kind of care is given to us throught every part of xioamis vision of the perfect consumer products. Lastly I will conclude by saying the Xiaomi mi mix is the standard of detail towards the consumers vision of a product that i once thought only Steve Jobs carried and I stand corrected with hope :)
