MIUI 6 ROM Redmi 1S

Straight from Mr. Hugo Barra himself, the MIUI 6 ROM update will be available this week. The version will be pushed out to every Redmi 1S user located wherever in the world. Mi is going to release the OTA notification in the next few days and as quickly as possible. Just wait for the official OTA release but as with most software updates, you can do so manually by downloading directly from the MIUI Forum. Feel free to download the Full ROM and view the Flashing Guide.

Not much details have been shared by Xiaomi’s Vice President of International but this MIUI 6 ROM update is the more stable version. It was announced last February but it’s only now the version is ready after several months of testing. As expected, a number of bugs and errors have been fixed.

The changelog we sighted mentioned some new features like an added flash notification light for incoming calls, Interactive Voice Response (IVR) for India, and an optimized answering button icon of Internet calls. Several errors have been fixed too like the blocklist function disappearing, search contacts not working, dial button UI display error, and contact apps not responding after logging out of Xiaomi account.

When it comes to Lockscreen, this update also adds a hotspot icon in status bar especially when hotspot is enabled, a new charging icon in status bar, Lockscreen music control, and a special unlocking gesture.
